Acting isn’t a game of “pretend.” It’s an exercise in being real.
— Sidney Poitier

Hi, my name is Bueka Uwemedimo. I am a British,Nigerian actor, singer and writer working between Washington, DC and New York City.


I relocated to the United States (US) a few years ago from London, England after a succesful theatrical career. Since then, I have been fortunate enough to have worked on some amazing projects, some of which are listed below.
