Early Life and Education
Ken Erics is the sixth child of Eric Chukwuemeka Nwenweh and Grace Ifeyinwa Nwenweh, both of Enugwu-Ukwu in Anambra State, Southeast Nigeria, and was born on February 28, 1985, in Kano State, Northwest Nigeria. He has Igbo ancestry. Erics attended the Binta Mustapha Science Nursery and Elementary School in Kano for his primary school and the Dennis Memorial Grammar School (DMGS) in Onitsha, Anambra State, for his secondary education. Erics first had an interest in the arts when he was a small child, and this led to his entrance to the Nnamdi Azikiwe University in Awka, Anambra State, where he earned a degree in theatre arts. Additionally, he has a master’s in theatre and film studies.

As a first-year university student in 2001, Erics received his first acting job in the Chris Ubani-directed “direct-to-dvd” film “Holy Prostitute,” in which he had a brief three-scene appearance as a doctor. After earning his degree from the university, he started going to auditions and was offered a couple more cameo roles in in-home movies. But his performance as “Ugo” in the 2012 film The Illiterate won over viewers and gave him more opportunities in the Nigerian film business.

As a writer, Eric’s first piece of published work, Cell 2, attracted attention and has been used for academic and theatrical purposes in a number of Nigerian higher institutions. Erics, who previously had his own musical band, performs occasionally as a vocalist and musician and also plays the guitar and keyboard. He has worked on the creation of a number of original movie soundtracks.

In 2014, Erics earned the Best Lead Actor prize at the Afrifimo Awards in the United States as well as the City People Entertainment Award for Best Supporting Actor. He later went on to win the City People Entertainment Award for Best Lead Actor in 2015. Erics was nominated for the Golden Movie Awards in 2018 for Best Supporting Actor and went on to win the City People Entertainment Awards 2017 for Best Actor of the Year.

Inozikwa Omee, Ken Erics’ debut single, was released in December 2018. His first single was met with cheers from his admirers. The wonderful song and exceptionally beautiful vocals are a blatant sign that Ken Erics is here to stay. 

He has also appeared in films with A-list actors, including Yul Edochie, Desmond Elliot, Chiwetalu Agu, Regina Daniels, and Ngozi Ezeonu.
