As far as the Netflix generation goes, Orange is the New Black’s Crazy Eyes is probably the Nigerian who has been put on the world stage most. Uzo Aduba has featured on all five seasons of the Netflix Original and in her recent interview with Sway Calloway, the duo touch on being Nigerian, convincing her parents she wanted to delve into the performing world, being an immigrant and much more.

When speaking on her refusal to change her name she does admit that she tried to convert to Zoey at a younger age but had that request rejected by her mother who swiftly dismissed her request.

Aduba also goes into the latest season of Orange is the New Black, reveals her basketball alignment, coming to terms with the role of Crazy Eyes, participating as an athlete in her earlier days and much more.
