Kenny Dunkwu’s Biography ‘ Help Me To Tell The World’
Hi!! my name is Kenny Dunkwu and I am a British born voice over artist/actor and former Teacher of Nigerian origin. My surname actually come from the Igbo tribe one of the 3 main tribes in Nigeria, which means ‘help me to tell the world’ and for the past 15 years, I have been sharing my vocal expertise in the UK and across the world with clients in 26 countries and 3 continents.
My journey into the world of voice over, started whilst I was at the University of Manchester. I remember seeing a casting that read ‘Narrators urgently required for a Health Awareness Project.’ Without hesitation I contacted the Project Manager, who was a Nigerian academic, auditioned for the role and got the part. I was over the moon, but by the end of the narration I had no idea that the project was going to be aired globally!!! Again I realised that voice over would play a key role in my life.
As such, I am truly passionate about voice over, because it enables me to continue to connect and engage with people using my versatility and vocal range as a trained actor. This has led me to specialise in commercial, corporate and e-learning, whilst ‘dabbling’ you might say in animation and gaming which are genres that I love, due to my fun personality!!!
