The unpretentiously friendly old girl of Santa Maria Primary School, Enugu and Queen of the Holy Rosary in Nsukka has unarguably emerged one of the industry's finest, always leaving a memorable impression each time she features in a movie. An acting auntie to a number of young actresses, she is well married into the popular Onyiuke family. For her, acting has been a matter of childhood past time which has effortlessly become a ladder unto stardom. Ebele cut her acting teeth in primary school, did some more acting in secondary school before she gained admission to the University of Calabar to study Education. But Ebele's passion for make-believe resisted all attempts to make her not to train as a theatre artiste. To prove that her 'passion was thicker than a mere wish' Ebele, whom a critic once said possesses a textbook and clinical acting finishing, eventually pursued a Bachelor's Degree in Theatre Arts. Star of a number of television programmes and home movies including 'Moving Fingers', 'Hostages', 'Third Eye', 'Eziza', 'Evil Thing' and '30 Days' starring the deep actress Joke Silva, Ebele, a crusader for professionalism served out her National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) programme at the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) in Lagos. That provided the platform for Ebele - who was born in London but brought up in Enugu - to do some more acting.
