Desmond Elliot

Elliot was born to a Yoruba father and an Igbo mother; because of this, Elliot has described himself as being a Pan-African. He received his primary education at Air Force Primary School and later attended St John’s College, both in Jos. In 2003 he graduated from Lagos State University where he studied Economics.

Elliot was influenced by a friend to become an actor.  He started playing roles in soap operas like Everyday People, One Too Much and Saints and Sinners. He is one of Nollywood's leading actors, having appeared in over two hundred films including Men Who Cheat, Yahoo Millionaire and Atlanta. In 2008 Elliot co-produced and co-directed the movie "Reloaded" which received 3 nominations at the African Movie Academy Awards in 2009.

 In 2009 and 2010, Elliot was nominated for the Best Actor category at the Nigeria Entertainment Awards. Also in 2010, Elliot has been competing to become the ambassador for the Face of Hope Project, a "volunteer-based non-profit, non-religious, non-political organization established to give hope to the hopeless", in which he will work toward fixing "child illiteracy in Nigeria and Africa at large" if he is the victor.
