Micheal Ogochukwu also known as MOC (pronounced em-oh-cee); is a Nollywood Actor, Producer and Entrepreneur.
He was born in Lagos State Nigeria but originally from Delta State Nigeria. He began his acting career a little over a decade ago and has remained consistent till this day.
Micheal starred as a gay person in the movie Bad Confession (movie by Pressing Forward PRODUCTIONS), and his ingenuity and superb interpretation of the role gave him a notoriety of some sort.
He has been purported to be gay in some quarters- an accusation which he has roundly debunked in many forum.
I laugh when I hear these tales… I mean I’m an actor and as one I’m meant to interpret the roles I’m asked to play… if it means portraying a gay person, of course I must do so, and whatever character it is. This is art and and a form of expression… it doesn’t mean that I’m gay or whatever peeps might think I am. I’m a straight dude and if y’all doubt me then hook me up with your sis or girlfriend… then ask them what the experience is the morning after (laughs)
He is known to have collaborated with Bad Boy Nollywood figures like Zubby Michaels, Kelvin Ikeduba, Charles Okocha, Junior Pope in so many action movie flicks.
It is also a wonder that despite his bad boy looks and domineering mien, MOC is quite versatile and is known to act in Comedy movies.
He frequently collaborates with comedienne – Mary Ogbonna of the BILIKI fame in many comedy productions. The screen chemistry between these duo is quite affectionate and somewhat contagious when you see them do stuff on the big screen.
In 2016, the movie he starred in – O Town, alongside popular Nollywood veteran- Kalu Ikeagwu, got the nomination for “Best Soundtrack” which it eventually won in that year’s African Movie Academy Awards (AMAA 2016).
Presently, Micheal Ogochukwu brought his productivity to the test as he starred, produced and also served as the Executive Producer in the movie Solace .
The story revolves around four major casts- Uche Elendu, Eddie Watson, Nuella Njubigbo as well as MOC himself.
It tells a cautionary tale of love and betrayal, comeuppance and restoration.
Again, Micheal brought his A Game in the movie, especially as you get enthralled watching him do his thing.
He also gets to showcase another side of him especially as he espouses his romantic disposition, chivalry and charm to give his viewers something to reminisce for a long time.
As an entrepreneur, Micheal is known to invest in so many profitable business ventures. He has a rich portfolio as a Bitcoin miner.
He is also known to be a man with a big heart. When asked what he abhors in people, hear him:
… I hate fake people, folks who do not keep to their words. I’m a real person and if I’m down for you, it stays so. But if you abuse the privilege, then its game over…
