Beautiful and glamorous diamond Ms. Florence Okonkwo, popularly known as the Queen of Red Carpet is no doubt a highly industrious and wonderful woman of substance who believe that she could afford anything, could also give anything but she could not share a moment red carpet with a dull guy. The multiple awards winning United Kingdom based diva also known as Blaster is from Ogwashi-Uku in Delta State of Nigeria Lagos State University (LASU) graduate with a degree in Banking and Finance and ultimately enrolled for post-graduate studies in Marketing at Middlesex University, United Kingdom.
Florence copiously manifested the zeal for social services, selflessness and humanitarian gestures throughout her educational career as she was at different time member of such societies including Brownies and Girls Guide, Red Cross, etc. Her sterling qualities leadership, coupled with a knack for proactive gestures, has usually devolved on her positions of responsibility at every level of her education.
These qualities equally attracted various beneficial gestures in her favour, one of which was the scholarship for a Master’s degree at University of Middlesex. Sequel to a successful educational sojourn, Florence began to explore the competitive and highly challenging movie industry where she played leading role in classy movies and acted as Producer and/or Director in some others, including, but not limited to Shameful Deceit; The Soul; 18 Carat Mama; Heartless Carer; Broken Cross; Oga Detective; Return of the Don; The Baron; Love Conquer; Golden Love; Passport Sake; Top Range and Queen of the Red Carpet, “This is not about me” featuring Hollywood, Bollywood and Nollywood actors.
It is particularly worthy to note that Blaster weathered the storm and all challenges to stardom in environment mostly considered masculine and displayed rare courage and sportsmanship. One could not, but marvel at the mannerism which this incredible role model has managed her career with the daunting challenges of family and quasi-societal needs. In fact, a critical assessment of her role in such movies as Top Range, 18 Carat Mama , love conquer and Oga Detective, For the Love of Money to mention a few clearly attests to her quality as a quintessential character, easy to adore.
It is important therefore to remark that Florence toiled, paid her dues at acceptable measures, and underwent requisite tutelage in order to attract an audience which has remained steadfast to date. Apparently, the earlier days were cloudy, but the level of resilience of this lady facilitated much strength to clear the teething hitches. Accordingly, she has amassed an intimidating number of awards spread across 4 continents.
These include Hollywood -Africa Prestigious Award best actress 2018, BEFFTA best Producer 2018 and Film Producer 2014, ZAFAA Recognition award 2018, MAFAA Ambassador for Peace a 2018, EPRA Leadership and Entrepreneurial Awards 2017, MBGA The Most Beautiful girl in Abuja, Judge and recognition award.

Florence Blaster Onkonkwo is the founder and convener of ‘Stand By Me Network and member of UK Nollywood Producers Guild UKNPG. Arising from the sad experience of losing 2 of her siblings, to Sickle Cell at the tender age, Ms Okonkwo resolved to do all within her reach to reduce the scourge of the disease from the society. Her efforts in this respect have attracted an award recognition both from the Deputy Mayor of Southwark, Counsellor Lorraine Lauder and Carol Nwosu, the founder of ‘Sickle Cell and Young Stroke Survivor’ in the UK. She is the founder of ‘M & M FOUNDATION’, a charity organization, established to help vulnerable and grass-root people in Africa; set up in 2018.
As a practitioner, it is always interesting to imagine how this naturally gifted lady combines intricate measure of affection, love, suspense, understanding and predictive ability in her role in movies. In the combined history of Hollywood and Nollywood, Blaster gained inroad at a relatively tender age and was able to amass a great number of awards as an Actor, Producer, or Executive Producer.

FUNDRAISING EVENT & AFRICAN CUISINE NIGHT TAKING PLACE IN WYKE, BRADFORD THIS SATURDAY

My Daddys Haven will be organizing a fundraising night this Saturday the 12th of Octrober at 4pm on the dot in Westfield Lane, Wyke, Bradford with the objective of helping underprivelged children in Southern Africa .

This is an event you cannot afford to miss, for more information , please refer to flyer or ring 07861 302983

ABOUT MY DADDYS HAVEN

My Daddy’s haven was conceived in 1999 when I saw a 10 year old boy picking food from a trash bin. I took courage by approaching him and asked sensitive questions about his whereabouts as well as his parents but he did not want to disclose his life. I was overwhelmed with sorrow because I felt that my hands were tight as I did not know what to do except giving him a fish for a day which was R100.00 equivalent to £10.00 but I wanted to do more hence My Daddy’s Haven.

We are a new charity that wants to bring Glory to Jesus Christ by helping to restore dignity to underpriviledge children in South Africa. We centre our purposes, aims, prodedures and ambitions on the love and teachings of Jesus Christ. Prayer will be central to this ministry.
