Emerging Nigerian born star actress Mbong Amata began her career in her native land at the tender age of 16, but has since elevated her profile in the soon to be released 'Niger Delta-The Story of Black November' as a rare Nigerian heroine. Mbong has often been cast in films that express her passion for the human rights movement, and as the lead actress in 'Niger Delta' portrays a young woman who vigorously pursued justice and humanity while challenging the mighty corrupt Oil Company that was initially responsible for her character’s American education.

Her numerous film credits include the widely successful 'Amazing Grace' and other notable Nollywood films such as 'Mutanda' and 'Wheel of Change' where her character became pregnant and contract the HIV/AIDS virus. It is among the films credits that she is most fond of. To many in Mbong's native land she is considered a trailblazer who has acted alongside Hollywood stars in films which offer political purpose and suspense, but it is her powerful role in 'Niger Delta' that will introduce her to America and an international global audience.

The City people best Actress (2011), embraced the daring role, which has brought about threats of violence personally and to her family, but it has not deterred her from performing in films that inspire change for the betterment of humanity.
