Linda Ejiofor is your typical down-to-earth actress who viewers have come to love and adore. Popularly known as Bimpe Adekoya on Tinsel, Linda has won the hearts of many with the realness of her acting.
The second of five children, she attended Ilabor Primary School Surulere and went on to Federal Government Girls College, Onitsha for her secondary school education. After secondary school, she started a diploma programme in Theatre Arts at the University of Ibadan. That programme came to a premature halt after her dad pulled her out of the school stating no daughter of his will become a common actress. She then gained admission to study Sociology at the University of Port-Harcourt.
While waiting for NYSC, a friend convinced her to go for the Tinsel audition, which she did in 2007, and in 2008 during her service year, she got called in for the role of Bimpe, that was the turning point in her life.
She has graced that role for about 7 years and counting and has also acted in some feature films such as Secret Room and the most talked about Rita Dominic production – The Meeting. Linda’s latest project is her role in Dowry an Ebony Life TV Series.
We love you Linda, Keep up the good work and we wish you all the best in your endeavors!!!
