Ego Boyo Becomes 60th President of the International Women’s Society

Ego Boyo (Violated, Keeping Faith) is now the 60th President of the International Women’s Society.

The investiture took place on Tuesday 14th of March, 2017 at the Preparatory School, Ikoyi (School Hall),
36-40 Glover Road, Ikoyi, Lagos. The International Women’s Society, founded in 1957, is an independent, non-political, non-governmental and non-profit organization.

Its objectives include fostering and promoting international understanding, working for the advancement of women and children in Nigeria, helping and providing cultural exchanges for women of all races, discussing problems affecting the various communities in Nigeria, establishing relations with similar organizations in Nigeria and other countries, aiding worthwhile welfare and charitable projects, and encouraging and developing the common interest of women.

Back in the 90’s, during the Golden age of Nigerian cinema, the veteran actress played the role of Anne Haastrup in the Checkmate TV Series. The series ran on the NTA network and was created by the late MFR honoree – Uzoamaka Audrey Igwe (Rattle Snake, Fuji House of Commotion).

Violated, Ego Boyo’s first film (and of which she was a co-producer),  starred Kunle Bamtefa (Mortal Inheritance), Richard Mofe-Damijo (Oloibiri), Joke Silva (Married But Living Single), and Funlola Aofiyebi-Raimi (Tinsel, Grey Dawn). The film was one of the highest selling productions in 1996 with 150,000 tapes sold and distributed.
