Born in early 80s in Awka to Mr & Mrs Mansuetus Ukoh indigene of Nimo in Njikoka LGA of Anambra state, ADAORA UKOH a Taurean, is the first child in a family of four children 2 boys and 2girls she was bred in LAGOS.
She attended BLOSSOM CHILDREN’S SCHOOL in Iju hills Agege area of Lagos where she had her prep school, kindergarten and nursery education before proceeding to ABC NURSERY LAND in Ilupeju for her primary education, then to St JOHNS COLLEGE for secondary schooling and to UNIVERSITY OF LAGOS AKOKA where she read LAW.
Her sojourn into the world of acting started as a TEENAGER (Age 15), when she approached an actress who lived on same street with her to introduce her to the movie world. She took her to her first audition which landed her a role alongside the likes of ZACK ORJI, PETE EDOCHIE, and REGINA ASKIA in her very first movie titled EVIL GENIUS .
Subsequent auditions were just as successful. Before she clocked 18 she was already a brand name in the industry, featuring and performing brilliantly in many movies including KARISHIKA, CURSED FROM BEYOND, BORA, LAST PARTY, BLOOD MONEY, and RITUALS.
When admission came calling in 1997 few months after loosing her dad, she jumped into school which to her was the main priority, though she tried to joggle schooling and acting but considering the nature of her course she couldn’t as she missed an exam in her first semester while shooting KARISHIKA so that spurred her to quitting acting totally for her studies. She made her comeback professionally this time in 2005 after graduating with a degree in law (LL.B), with an outstanding performance and interpretation in a female campus cult movie title “BLACK BRA” which shot her into limelight. ADAORA also did a certificate programme in information technology with an American affiliated school called KAROX COLLEGE.
