Early Life and Education
Sharon was born on October 24, 1992, in Lagos State, Nigeria, where she had her primary and secondary education. She was raised in Lagos with her younger sister, Thelma Ezeamaka, who is also an actress, by their mom, who was a single mother.
This talented actress, in an interview, said this, in quote:
“I finished secondary school before I was sixteen, but I decided not to go to the university. The reason is that there are no higher institutions that teach film making as a course, but Theatre Arts. I didn’t want to study Theatre Arts. I want to study film making from a director’s perspective. I already know what I want to do with my life, that’s something I think a lot of young people lack.”
She also disclosed that she would love to further her studies abroad to learn film directing:
“Yes, I want to go into directing before I turn 25. That is why I want to go to the New York film Academy, at least before I get to that age. I know I’d be ready to start directing my own projects at 25, so I want to get a lot of experience. I think directing is way more serious than people think it is.”
Sharon started her acting career in 1997 at the tender age of 5. She got her first role in the movie “Narrow Escape” alongside Pete Edochie and Ann Njemanze.
She came to the limelight for her role in the tragic thriller film “Dear Mother.” She has also appeared in TV series such as Shuga, Kala & Jamal, and Dorathy My Love.

When she was 20 years old, people still saw her as a baby, and so she decided to take a two-year break to do other things, get more mature, and explore other areas of the media. She worked for about a year at FAB magazine, a fashion magazine.
After that, she took a break before she debuted on the M-Net show, The Johnsons. In The Johnsons, she played a really young character who is fifteen.
The Nollywood star has a boyfriend, and according to her, she likes keeping her private life out of her career.
She once said in 2012, when she was 20 years old, that she would actually love to marry someone who does what she does; who is somehow involved in the media. She Said;
“I have found out that only someone who is involved in the business can understand what we do, and I wouldn’t want my husband to complain about how I’m never around, or how I travel too much. I can’t deal with that kind of pressure.”
