ATToh

WANAgho CAMERA-READY LOVE When a photo captures a man and a woman who are so real and relaxed together, you might wonder if they are engaged. This was the case with our makeshift groom, Tinsel actor and producer/presenter/ entrepreneur Chris Attoh, and Isio Wanagho, the goal driven “bride” who has made an impact in the modeling industry in Nigeria and has her own fashion line. I could not have asked for a better first “couple” cover, which genuinely portrays the joy associated with companionship and weddings. In this revealing interview, Chris and Isio open up about their passions for life and their relationships as well as share ideas for their own dream weddings.

In one sentence, how would you describe Chris Attoh? Chris Attoh is master of self, thus master of all, blessed and created in the image and greatness of God. Each day as an individual, I will touch lives through the power of film and story telling, and continue to create opportunities to do just that. I love a good laugh and‌I could go on. That was not a short sentence, was it? [laughing].

What is your driving force? Purpose, love, joy, inner peace, responsibility and the creative power in me.

What challenges have you faced in the entertainment industry? Maybe the biggest is trying to stay true to self, which seems to be the hardest lately. At times, as an actor, you wear so many hides that you often get lost in them. There have been many other challenges, starting with the days of walking into every audition I heard of and constantly being rejected for some reason or the other. But they [the challenges] have all been welcome and instrumental in getting me where I am today.
