Just because it’s Thursday and the perfect day for every kind of Throwback, let’s look at our top five Nollywood female actors when they started, versus where they are now.
While some of today’s ‘old Nollywood’ actors got their start in the ’90s, many of them didn’t get to remain A-listers.
Here is a list of five top Nollywood actresses who got their breaks in the 90’s, and where they are right now.
Here we go;
1. Genevieve Nnaji
The actress made her acting debut in 1998 at the age of 19, with the movie “Most Wanted”. Fast forward to 2016, and she’s an AMVCAs multiple award nominee for her debut production “Road to Yesterday.”
2. Rita Dominic
The actress made her acting debut in 1998 with the movie “Time to Kill.” It’s 2016, and she is already a multiple award winner. Still receiving positive reviews for her role in the movie “The Meeting” as Clara Ikemba, the actress recently co-produced the movie “Suru L’ere,” which also starred her as Mama Akara.
3. Stephanie Linus
The actress made her acting debut in 1997 in the movie “Compromise.” It’s 2016 and her directorial debut “Dry” has earned her multiple 2016 AMVCA nominations among other notable awards and recognitions.
4. Omotola Jalade Ekeinde
