Nollywood is full of
pretty faces who exude sex, glamour and style. Most of them have experienced broken marriages while others are anxious to have a taste of it, because the dream of every woman is to find a man to spend her entire life with.
Among the Nollywood spinters still waiting for a wedding rings include:
This super actress is one babe that would forever captivate her fans with her smile and sexy figures. At more than thirty years of age, she can pass for a teenager, not even a tell tale sign of motherhood can be seen in her.
This mother of one is still single and super rich with lots of expensive cars, luxury mansions and top class properties littered every where. Some of her fans are of the opinion that her intimidating wealth and class is the reason why most suitors avoid her.
This A-list actress is regarded as the best dressed actress in Nollywood, though not blessed with long legs, this light skinned actress is blessed with full sexyhips, glowing skin, young and beautiful face, but at 40 years she is yet to tie the nuptial knots.
The actress, who produced the movie titled “The Meeting” is seen by many as a wife material, but it is amazing that she is still single. She was rumoured to have dated Jim Iyke, in the past and recently it was disclosed that she will settle down once she meets the right person.
Benita Nzeribe is one actress whose works have brought recognition, when it comes to marriage though she has not been lucky, she told Vanguard source.
“If I have to say the truth, marriage is not all about money or the little things of life. We should marry for real love that is why I see myself as being able to marry whoever I am in love with, no matter his status in life, that is to say even if the guy is a wheel barrow pusher, I would marry him as long as my heart is with him”.
Empress Njamah, a sexy and daring actress is getting old and still single, because according to her, she can never contemplate dating a poor man let alone considering getting married to one.
Pretty and curvy actress, Ebube Nwagbo is no doubt still single despite various proposals but she seems only interested in selling her posh hair products.
She said the reason of her still being single is because “I am someone who has always believed in love. It is a big deal to me, so if I have to do it, it has to be right, I am a strong believer of love, I get lots of proposals, it is so crazy, I do not know who to give a chance to. I think it is a price I have to pay for stardom”.
The A-List actress is still single though not getting younger. The former aide to the Imo State Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, has declared that she would not mind being a second wife if the need arises.
In a recent TV interview, she said “I have said it before that if ladies do not stop this nonsense they call “one-man-one-wife many of them will get to 40 and still remain single, there are more women than men, go to churches the number of single ladies in most cases is three times the number of single guys.
The single status of this beautiful and sexy actress has remained a mystery to many of her fans.
The actress, who is in her early 40s has always stated that she is not looking for a husband and cannot be pressurised into it.
In a recent interview, the actress said “I am not looking for a husband and I do not need anything. I am a complete person, I only do things that make me happy because I believe that there is just one life and you should live it to the maximum.
Halima Abubakar is one actress who is endowed physically, but is yet to get married but according to her.
She is not under pressure. “I don’t know why people always seem to pressurise others to get married when the marriage does not work out, they will be the first to criticise you”.
Seven Notable Moments In Late Baba Suwe’s Life
Renowned Nigerian comic actor, Babatunde Omidina, popularly known as Baba Suwe, passed away on Monday, November 22 at the age of 63.
Baba Suwe’s demise was announced by his son, Adesola Omidina, on social media.
Here are seven key things to remember about the popular late Nollywood comic actor.
Baba Suwe was born on August 22, 1958.
State of origin
Baba Suwe was a native of Ikorodu, Lagos State.
He was born and grew up in Lagos Island.
Baba Suwe had his primary and secondary education in Lagos and Osun States, in the South-Western part of the country.
Baba Suwe was renowned for the comic role he played and featured in scores of movies – including those produced by him – such as Iru Esin, Ebi Olokada, Baba Londoner, Obelomo, Elebolo, Larinloodu, and Baba Jaiye Jaiye, among many others.
Baba Suwe’s health worsened as Tampan denied abandoning him
Omidina began acting in 1971.
He, however, came into limelight after he featured in a Yoruba movie titled ‘Omolasan’, which was produced by Obalende.
Demise of his wife
The comic actor was, married to comedienne Omoladun Omidina, who died in September 2009. It was one of the most devastating moments in the life of Baba Suwe.
Drug Trafficking accusation
In 2011, Baba Suwe was accused of cocaine trafficking by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) .
The allegation was later described as false and defamatory by a court in Lagos which ordered that Baba Suwe should be paid N25 million as compensation.
He, however, lamented that he did not receive any payment years after the ruling.
The veteran actor died on Monday, November 22, 2021, after he was said to have battled an illness for a long period. He was 63 years old.
ENIFF Showcases 50 Films From 15 Countries
The Eastern Nigeria International Film Festival, ENIFF, last Wednesday, in Enugu commenced the showcase of 50 films from 15 global countries.
The four-day event features among other films, a Moroccan movie, “Ultimate King”, Nigerian best narrative movie, “Yahoo Plus” and other award-winning movies.
Co-founder of ENIFF, Obianujuaku Akukwe-Nwakalor, who spoke with newsmen in Enugu at the commencement of the premiere, on Wednesday, disclosed that the film festival features the participation of major Nollywood actors such as Pet Edochie.
Akukwe-Nwakalor however regretted that Nollywood, which had its roots in the southeast has been taken away from the zone due to equipment deficit and support for the dwindling fortunes of actors and artistes, who are based in the east.
She also said that the development had forced most of the southeast-based actors and artistes to relocate to Lagos where there are better opportunities for the industry.
She said, “They (actors and artistes) are struggling because they don’t have the right equipment; they don’t have the right support; they don’t have money.
“To produce a film that can compete, that can at least be on NETFLIX, you need millions of Naira and the people here(East) don’t understand what it means to invest. If I tell you to invest N100 million into my film, you don’t understand and because you don’t understand how you are going to make N300 million from it, you are not going to invest”.
Akukwe-Nwakalor, with the co-founder, Mr Chris Odili, is hosting a film festival called Eastern Nigeria International Film Festival (ENIFF) in Enugu through the Eastern Nigeria Film and Arts Initiative, said the idea was to bridge and set up a creative hub in the southeast.
“We’re basically bridging the entertainment space or grid and set up a creative hub in the southeast part of Nigeria.
“Yes, we have pockets of things going on here. But, you will agree with me that we’re taking a back seat. We’re the backbenchers right now when it comes to entertainment space. Everything happens in Lagos.
“I came from Abuja and things as basic as finding a projector were very difficult. This is because people don’t use nor demand such here.
“We have forgotten that the Nollywood industry actually started from here in the southeast. But we have lost the steam”, Akukwe-Nwakalor said.
The idea of the festival, she explained, was to come back home, set up a space where the young ones, particularly those in the schools, could be trained to learn about film education, bringing in facilitators from different parts of Africa and the world so that they can learn from best hands what the creative space is about.
“We are starting from education. We are teaching them first to understand how this works. Until you understand, that will shift your mindset and when your mindset is shifted you can now begin to think of how to make money.
Ramsey Nouah Accuses Directors Of ‘Mediocre Nollywood Production’
Nigerian veteran Nollywood actor, Ramsey Nouah, has blamed directors in Nollywood of mediocre Nollywood production.
According to him, Nollywood needs a lot of improvements before it can be considered satisfactory for viewers.
Our source reports that Ramsey Nouah said, “I still find a lot of disconnect between the technicality and creativity in my industry right now. I see that the creative, which is the art part of filmmaking, is still not as deep as I want it to be.
“Performances from the actors are not deeply rooted. We have good quality techniques going on, but it’s almost like oil and water not mixing properly.
“If you can’t get an Oscar-winning performance from an actor the fault is not the actor, but the director’s. If you can’t deliver as an actor, the problem is the director that cast you”.
