Fatima Bio: Her Rise from Nollywood Films to Become Sierra Leone's First Lady!

By a press release (08/04/18)

Fatima, the wife of newly elected President of Sierra Leone Julius Maada Bio, was a former Nollywood film actress and scriptwriter.

 

Pretty Fatima was born in Kono to a Sierra Leonean mother Tidankay Jabbie and a Gambian father Umar Jabbie who lived in Kono for many years as a business man and was a very successful property owner in the diamond rich Kono district. (Photo: Pretty Fatima with hubby).

Young Fatima Jabbie-Bio grew up in Kono where she attended the Ansarul Islamic School and later enrolled at the St Joseph Convent Secondary School in Freetown.

As a matter of fact through her maternal lineage, her late grandfather Alhaji Marabou Jabbie hailed from Kono whilst her late grandmother Isata Nabay hailed from Segbwema.

Her deep rooted connection in Sierra Leone as a little girl growing up in a lovely Sierra Leone and Gambian family was admirable. Even more admirable was Fatima’s academic and professional careers which blossomed big time nationally and internationally.

A very promising and determined young woman, Fatima Jabbie-Bio graduated with Bachelor of Arts with Honours degree in Performing Art from the Roehampton Institute in London.

Her BA degree in Performing Art prepared her to start a very successful career in the African Film Industry in London which has made her not only one of the most elegant Nollywood actresses but also a talented scriptwriter and executive producer.

Fatima Bio has starred in many nollywood movies such as 'Battered', 'Shameful Deceit', 'Expedition Africa', 'My Soul' etc. Over the years, she has been cast with famous nollywood actresses including Genevieve Nnaji and Osita Iheme (Pawpaw) in one of the most award-winning movie 'Mirror Boy'.

She has also written and produced her own movie 'Battered'. And part of her award collections for her talent in the film and fashion industries have been an award for “Miss Africa 2000” in the UK, “Best Supporting Actress” for the movie 'Mirror Boy' at the ZAFAA Awards 2011 in the UK.

Fatima has also won “Best Actress Award” from the Black Ethnics, Fashions and Film Industry in the UK 2011; Pan-African “Woman of the Year Award” was given to her by ‘All African Media’ based in Ghana; and in September 2013, Fatima Bio was voted the best female actress at the African Oscars in Washington DC.

She excelled in the African Oscars from a list of 32 nominees in Africa People’s Choice Best Actress category. She won the award ahead of other nollywood superstars including the likes of Omotola Jalade, Monalisa Chinda, Queen Amina and Ify Hollywood.

But that was not all. On 27 October 2013, she also won the Gathering of African Best (GAB) Awards for her exceptional contribution for promoting a positive image of Africans around the world; an event which revealed the accomplishments of award winning Africans.
