Frederick Leonard Biography
A Nigerian actor, Frederick Nnaemeka Leonard, was born on May 1, 1980. 2014 he won the Golden Icons Academy Movie Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Film. In 2016, he won the City People Movie Award for Best Supporting Actor of the Year (English) at the City People Entertainment Awards.
Leonard began acting in the Nigerian film business in 2001, appearing in a few one-scene roles. However, he stopped working almost soon after making his debut to finish his university studies and earn a degree. After completing his studies at the university, Leonard returned to Nollywood, the popular name for the Nigerian film business, in 2008 and landed his first significant role in the film, “Indian Doctor.”
Mr. and Mrs. Leonard gave birth to Frederick Nnaemeka Leonard in Nnewi, Anambra State, in southeast Nigeria. When Frederick Leonard’s father passed away in 2000, his mother was left to look after him and his sister. In 2016, 16 years after the incident, Frederick lost his mother to death. It took him a while to return to his feet because he loved his mother.
Leonard is now an orphan who has talked publicly about the devastation of losing both parents, particularly his mother’s death, which he describes as an unpleasant situation that has left a hole in his life.
Leonard is the Igbo parents’ first kid. He had come into the world decades before his younger sister. He was the second child in a family of four before the tragic passing of his parents. His sister attends Yaba College of Technology in Lagos.
The actor has fathered no children yet.
Frederick initially engaged to Peggy Ovire three years ago, but their union lasted just a year before they called it quits. On October 21, 2022, Freddie Leonard—as he is fondly called—made his relationship with Nigerian model, actress, and producer Peggy Ovire public. As it turns out, Freddie resumed his connection with Peggy while avoiding any clues from the media. Freddie and Peggy were married on November 19, 2022, in Warri, Delta state, Peggy’s home state.
The estimated net worth of Fred Leonard is $500,000. Frederick works as a model and an actor, which is how he makes most of his money.

In addition, the dashing actor had served as Diamond Ark Lifestyle, an Indian fashion company, as its brand ambassador.
The actor has demonstrated a strong preference for attractive and exotic automobiles. He was once seen driving a black Range Rover SUV, which was thought to be one of his several cars.
With his wife, Peggy Ovire, Frederick Leonard owns a mansion in Ikota, Lekki, Lagos. After becoming engaged to Ovire, another actress, Leonard purchased the opulent home with a swimming pool.
