I’m celebrating Esther Idowu Phillips today. A veteran actress popularly known as Mama Rainbow. An amazing woman who is a huge inspiration to me.
Esther Idowu Phillips was born on October 16, 1942 in Ogun State, Nigeria. Her stage name “Mama Rainbow” stems from “Osumare” meaning “Rainbow” in English, the name of the theatre group of her late husband. She worked as a certified nurse in general hospitals in Nigeria for several years and occasionally acted in theatre. She ventured in to full-time acting after the death of her husband. She has featured in several Nigerian films. She has won numerous awards.
She is truly a source of inspiration and a phenomenal woman!
