Hilda Nwachinemereogo Dokubo is one of those that started what the world is celebrating today as Nollywood. Obviously in her late 40s, her parents are Benibo and Stella Edmund. The dad was from Buguma, Rivers State and her mother, Umuahia, Abia State. She attended Breadfruit International School, London, St. Mary’s State School, Port-Harcourt, Government Girls Secondary School, Port-Harcourt (where she started acting) and the University of Port-Harcourt where she eventually read Theatre Arts.
She was also at the Royal College of Arts, London where she bagged a PGD in Dance and Choreography. Always remembered for her roles as Nengi and Urenma in Goodbye Tomorrow and Forever respectively, she has indeed come a long way. Now based in Port-Harcourt, where she first struck gold working for former Governor Peter Odili, her back-in-her-life husband, Akarose Mrakpor is Urhobo, from Otu-Jeremi, Delta State. They met at UNIPORT in 1986, but got married many years later. The marriage later failed – but now they are back again. Hilda and Karos have one son, Tuvi. But before then, Hilda had had a boy, Isosia, who is said to be in the university now.
