Labake- Labake (born 22nd April) is a multi-award winning Nigerian actress and a film producer.
Educated with a diploma in Law at the University of Ibadan in 1999 and a Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of Abuja in 2004.
Labake-Labake made her debut appearance in the famous Nigerian soap Fortunes and recently in the notorious cult classic – “My London Slave”.
She’s also a thriving financial adviser in insurance with a major, UK insurance company with Fourteen years (14) experience, in the sales and marketing sector, but acting had always been in the charts for her as a very deep passion. In 2016, she resumed back acting after a short career break. She recently produced SISTASISTA and starred in a TV series (Apostle Do good) and others like “My London Slave, in a strange land.
She is grafter, and never stops believing in possible outcomes when we try.
Some of her previous awards include: BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR ZAFAA 2019
Movie (SISTASISTA) BEST ACTOR FEMALE UK AFRICAN FILM AWARDS 2018
OUTSTANDING CONTRIBUTION TO THE COMMUNITY (ARTS) GAB AWARDS 2018 GATHERING OF AFRICAS BEST

It is with a sense of distinct pride and honour that I invite our very own UK Nollywood Queen, Zainab Popoola (Labake-Labake) forward to receive this year’s Nigerian British merit award.
