Zack Orji, the ace Nigerian actor, has cleared the air about his nationality.


In a recent interview, the actor disclosed he was born in Gabon due to his father’s frequent travels for work.

Some blogs however claimed that he denied his Nigerian descent, saying “I’m from Gabon”.

Clarifying his statement via his Instagram page on Tuesday, Orji said he is a “full-blooded Nigerian”. He said he is from Enugu and “proud of my Nigerian heritage”.


The actor also slammed the people pushing out different narratives about his nationality, describing their claim as a “lie from the pit of hell”.

“Not long ago, they said I was dead, and, by God’s grace and mercy, it eventually turned out to be a lie from the pit of hell. Now, another lie from the pit of hell has emerged, claiming that I said, “I’m from Gabon, I’m not a Nigerian,” he wrote.

“I hereby issue a disclaimer dissociating myself from that lie. I am a full-blooded Nigerian, both of my parents are Nigerians.


“I am from Enugu State, the Coal City State. I am proudly Nigerian, and I am equally proud of my Nigerian heritage. God almighty will deal with whoever originated that lie as he deems fit.”
