The actor who usually plays playboys, money ritual cultists and distraught husbands couldn’t be any further away from reality. The husband of 12 years and father of 3 beautiful young daughters is a family man entirely devoted to the well-being of his family and the rock solid relationship he nurtures with his wife.
The couple met in 1994 on the movie set of a minor production set by a member of their church. And since good things never come at random or unannounced, they were playing a married couple.
The Anambra State native didn’t have any premonitions or feelings for his wife-to-be back then, they were working together and developed a friendly relationship. That was until a mutual friend also working in the production revealed to Tony that Patsy had been continuously asking for him on a day he was absent from the set. That gave him the green light to declare his feelings to her.

A Masters Degree holder in International Law and Diplomacy from the University of Lagos in 1992, Umez had to do some private tutoring to make a living since he couldn’t find a job in his line of business due to an embargo on jobs by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
After a 5-year courtship, the couple married traditionally in 1999 and in church in 2002.
Steve Agienoji gave him the chance in 1995 to play in the movie “Pains” and the rest is history.
