- Uche Jombo has sounded a note of warning to colleagues and business partners in the industry who continue to mispronounce and misspell her name
- The actress noted that henceforth she wouldn’t honour promotional materials in which her name is wrongly spelt
- Uche’s post stirred mixed reactions from her fans and some colleagues in the entertainment industry
Nollywood actress Uche Jombo seems to have had enough of people, especially business partners, mispronouncing and misspelling her surname.
The movie star in a recent Instagram video called out such people and sounded a note of warning to them.
According to her, most people still replace the letter ‘O’ in her surname with the letter ‘U’ thereby changing the name to Jumbo as opposed to Jombo.
Uche noted that she has been in the industry for over two decades and it is enough time for people to have learnt how to pronounce her name and write it correctly.
In a different portion of the video, the Nollywood star made it clear that henceforth promotional materials that carry the wrong spelling of her name wouldn’t be posted on her page.
