Chika Okpala, MFR was born June 10, 1950, a Nigerian comedian, better known as Chief Zebrudaya Okoroigwe Nwogbo, an appellation he got from his role as “Chief Zebrudaya” in a TV comedy series, ‘New Masquerade’ from way back as 1983.
This character made a name, because even as children, we already started giving ourselves names of the characters like ‘gringori akakpo’ or ‘Clerus’ or ‘Jagwa’ or ‘Solo’…lol when playing then….
I could rememeber growing up and staying glued to our monochrome (black and white) TV set, once its about time for the series. Also ‘Lagos nawa’ , ‘baba sala’ and the likes, will have you laugh the hell out of your soul..
He attended Prince Memorial High School at Onitsha,Anambra state Northeastern between 1964 to 1972. He later obtained a Bachelor of science (B.sc) degree from Enugu state university if science and technology in 1996.
Because i’m sure many people referred to him as illiterate, due to his inarticulate brohaha….For a well paved legacy, we say a big congrats to you as one pioneer amongst pairs…. Chief Zebrudaya alias 4:30, is one actor and comedian history won’t forget…
