Chiwetel Ejiofor became the toast of Hollywood after his performance in the Oscar-winning 12 Years A Slave.

Now he is moving on from the career defining role of Solomon Northup, to star in the adaptation of the novel Half of A Yellow Sun.

The BBC's Brenda Emmanus caught up with the actor, who says he never thought he would end up in the movies.
