He abandoned the practice of law to focus on his real love- films. he lives in Chelsea West London with his wife Amaka and three children: D'Kachy, D'Richy and Da'Luchy.

Nigerian director Obi Emelonye wrote, directed and co-produced an award-winning fiction film, THE MIRROR BOY (2010 · 1h27m). Produced by The Nollywood Factory and OH Films, THE MIRROR BOY features some of Africa's biggest film stars and is an example of a recent African feature film incorporating Nollywood stylistics while remaining accessible to both African and international audiences. Obi is one of the brightest creative minds to come out of Nollywood.
Born in Nigeria and based in the UK, Obi's films have been shown in European cinemas since 2004. Obi has a multi-disciplinary approach to filmmaking with directorial credits including: ECHOES OF WAR (2004), THE LONDON SUCCESSOR (2006), LUCKY JOE (2006), THE ASYLYM (2008), QUIET STORM (2009), and THE MIRROR BOY (2010).
