Ukwanni Warumbe, Artist & Actor: 20th
interview the uniquely talented Ukwanni Warumbe, who
recently returned to his home land of Africa.
had the pleasure of meeting Ukwanni one evening at
Joy's World, as screened on Sydney's Channel 31, where
we do part time television presenting.
speaks on his background, inspirations and current
was my greatest accomplishment?
be honest Greg, My greatest accomplishment so far
has been making Air Force history on a number of occasions.
I'm talking about the kind of events that were written
into the study manuals promotion testing by NCO (Non
Commissioned Officers) candidates.
has been my biggest disappointment?
would say Greg looking back over my life I wish I
would have dared to dream bigger things. I do that
now of course. But when you are young, you think in
such limited terms. I say to all, follow our heart
and reach far. I mean really challenge yourself.
I want to ask you what you single passion is in life?
that is actually a very hard question to answer. I
have a number of "Passions" which absolutely
fuel my drive to achieve my best. The first one is
my quest to live my best life every day! When I awake
each morning Greg, making the most of whatever will
come my way. The next thing inspires me is my love
and live long involvement in art. For me Greg, my
ability to create ignites a burning passion within.
Just knowing I am creating something that no other
human being have ever thought of before and in ways
unique to me is truly awesome.
tell us Ukwanni, where has your art taken you?
believe you want to know Greg what door has my art
opened and also where have I exhibited my art?
you can elaborate on both aspects for us Ukwanni if
Greg, well, to begin with my art has been a medium
through which I have met some amazing people. Including
politicians, community leaders, and of course other
artists. A couple of them are very famous painters
and photographers. I have exhibited in Europe Greg
as well as recently in Sydney with more exhibits to
follow here in south Africa very soon.
us about your involvement in the film industry?
Greg, I was "Scouted" by a number of talent
professionals while there in Sydney, but I chose to
go with one of the premier agencies. Through my agent
I worked in TV commercials, a TV sit-com segment,
and a TV pilot. I also got to work in the movie Matrix
III which will release next summer. Acting may well
become another one of my passions. Oh yeah, along
those lines Greg, I just signed with a model agent.
I'll get to broaden my portfolio of skills with this
note: An inspiring interview to say the least. We
look forward to hearing a great deal more from this
