Naija made me America raised me
So it was only right that for my first @hbo comedy special, I PUT ON for both of my homes. What a moment it was to bring cameras all the way to Lagos AND deep in the village to get a sneak peak into the family that birth my funny. And then finally bringing it full circle to the DMV and taping in front two sold-out crowds at the Howard Theater. It’s been a LOOOONG journey, but how sweet it is, to finally be able to say, #MOMMAiMadeIt!

Born in Port Harcourt, Nigeria, she is popularly known for her role as Molly Carter in HBO comedy-drama, Insecure.

The Hollywood star hilariously claims it was either this or medical school. Her parents always wanted her to become a doctor, lawyer, pharmacist or engineer like most African parents.

Orji says she was inspired to do comedy after performing stand up comedy in the talent section of a beauty pageant. She went on to pursue a career in comedy after graduate school.
