LBAS: What is your idea of perfect happiness?  
Nnamdi: Relaxing  in my beach home in Mauritius and sipping wine

LBAS: What is your current state of mind?

LBAS: What is the trait you most deplore in others?

LBAS: Which is your favorite word or phrase? 
Nnamdi: Shit!...I curse a lot…bloop

LBAS: If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

Find out more about Nnamdi and Onome in Starting Over Again. Here are the details.

Abandoned by her husband and left to care for a sick child, Onome is desperate to find a job. After several failed attempts, she eventually lands a job at one of the most prestigious banks in Lagos. She is finally rebuilding her life after her divorce and everything seems to be falling into place. However, she finds herself irresistibly drawn to her new boss, Nnamdi, who is also notoriously known for his womanising ways. Desperate to fight this attraction, she struggles to keep him at arm’s length. She can’t afford to let her growing attraction to him jeopardise her job, and most importantly, her heart…

Scorched by the burden of a scandalous family secret he stumbled upon when he was a young boy, single father Nnamdi, finds it hard to trust women. He has always lived his life lightly, with his relationships free from deep emotions and entanglements. To protect himself from hurt, he has built a wall around his heart. But there is something about his new executive marketing assistant, Onome, that makes him consider a future with her. The more time he spends with her and her daughter, Fejiro, the more the wall around his heart crumbles. And just as he is beginning to warm up to the idea of forever, her ex-husband resurfaces…
