Ep 99 Uzo Chijioke | From novels to scripts, Nigerian culture, and embracing structure

Arts Calling is now available wherever you listen to podcasts!

Hi there,

Today I am thrilled to be arts calling Uzo Chijioke!


Uzo Chijioke is a Nigerian American author / screenwriter with a background in pharmacy. Having done what he was “supposed to do” as the first son to immigrant parents, he’s lived a life centered around duty and structure, even spending over a decade in the US Army. As such, Uzo’s stories typically center protagonists burdened by the weight of culture and their journeys of self-discovery.
