Ufuoma Ejenobor was born in Benin City to Nigerian parents who hail from Delta State in Nigeria. She is grateful for a happy and well-broadened orientation made available to her from a very young age through TV and whole lots of reading. In a 2005 interview. She states that she did not necessarily get all she wanted but all she essential was always made available. Growing up in a large and closely knit family, playing around the rocky plateaux of Jos and weekly visits to the then lively Jos wildlife park, childhood for her was “always fun”.
She moved considerably from Benin City to Jos where she spent the better of her toddling years and later Lagos where she has lived for the increased part of her life and still resides till date. At age 7, her father coined a pet name for her: ISIO (which means star in urhobo).
She was so referred to as after the star actress of the TELEFEST programe put together by NTA Benin, “The Pot of Life”. From age 10, Ufuoma was constantly scolded as ‘Television star’ by her mom. This was due to her love for watching TV and reading novels. Such substantial love that almost every single food she was asked to prepare ended up a “burnt offering”. Little did they both know it was like a prophecy on their daughter.
