Toyin Abraham born September 5, 1982, is a Nigerian film actress, filmmaker, director and producer.
She began acting in 2003, when Bukky Wright, a Nigerian film actress, visited Ibadan (where she lived) to shoot a movie. Over the years, Toyin Abraham has produced, directed and featured in over 28 Nigerian films, such as Alani Baba Labake and Ebimi ni.
She was nominated for Best Supporting Actress in a Yoruba film titled Ebimi ni during the 2013 Best of Nollywood Awards alongside Joke Muyiwa, who was nominated for Best Lead Actress in a Yoruba film titled Ayitale. Based on her acting career, Toyin has also been called upon by politicians to campaign for them. At one of the programs for Nigeria President Goodluck Jonathan’s re-election bid in 2015, the actress said she was prepared to die for the People’s Democratic Party on whose platform Jonathan was contesting. But she later came out to apologize to her fans for the comments and urged Nigerians not to spill their blood for any politician.
Toyin Abraham is thought to be worth about $1.6 million as of 2021, and she is one of the richest and most influential actress and director in Nigeria.
