Google Doodle honours Amaka Igwe on 57th posthumous birthday

Late Nollywood filmmaker, Amaka Igwe, has been honoured with a Google Doodle on her 57th posthumous birthday.

A Google Doodle is a special, temporary alteration of the logo on Google’s homepages intended to commemorate holidays, events, achievements and notable historical figures.

The doodle went live today as an honour of late Igwe’s contributions to Nollywood.

She was a Nigerian filmmaker, broadcasting executive, and the owner of Top Radio 90.9 Lagos and Amaka Igwe Studios.

She was recognised as one of the second generation filmmakers who helped begin the video film era of Nigerian cinema.
