My ex’s family prevented her from marrying me – Nwaogu

Victor Udochukwu Nwaogu
Victor Udochukwu Nwaogu is a TV
presenter, voice-over artiste and an actor. Nwaogu, who is fond of
referring to himself as a ‘little person’, has been in the industry for
more than a decade.  He describes his passion for entertainment as
overpowering and does not wish he was in any other field.
“The passion is overwhelming; it is
beyond seeing actors but getting to learn how the industry plays out.
For me there is no better industry I would have been. Even if I was not
an actor, I would still have been in the entertainment industry,” he
According to Nwaogu, he feels that his
height prevents him from accessing big roles as most movies revolve
around people of average height.

He said, “If you look around you,
society is made up of people of average height, so it will be very
difficult for a writer to pick up a pen and start putting down stories
that are related to little people like us.”
On his relationship, Nwaogu admitted having had his fair share of heartbreaks. He also told Sunday Scoop how his would be in-laws denied him a wife because of his height.
“I have had my fair share of challenges
when it comes to relationships but it is still a normal thing. My last
relationship ended because of my height. The problem was not her but her
parents. I wanted to take our relationship to the next level. She
informed her parents and that was when things started to fall apart. The
parents said they wouldn’t assent to it and because my ex is someone
who likes to obey her parents, she called off the relationship.”
When asked if he has found any special
person, he replied, “It is not about finding a woman; it is about
finding a woman that will accept this body, especially in this part of
the world.”
