All week, will be sharing exclusive shots of E4 PR Stars.
Today, we feature a superstar and a rising star – Desmond Elliot & Joseph Benjamin



As promised, will be bringing you exclusive photos featuring some of Nollywood’s biggest stars represented to E4 PR.

Today, its all about the men.
Desmond Elliot is one of Nollywood’s top leading men. He is an award-winning actor and producer. Considered a versatile talent, Desmond has interpreted a myriad of roles in English, Yoruba and Ibibio. His new movie, “In A Man’s Mind” will be premiering in the USA on the 23rd of July 2010.

Joseph Benjamin is a promising young Nigerian actor. He got his big break as the co-host of MTN Project Fame West Africa Season II and grabbed the role of a lifetime as the co-star of Mahmood Ali-Balogun‘s “Tango With Me” alongside megastar Genevieve Nnaji.

The men’s shoot was themed football, corporate, bodyart and an additional playful ‘oldschool’ shoot for Desmond.

    Nice pics. Desmond does need to work out those flabs. Success does not need to translate to ‘chopping up’. And those finger nails!!! The first time I saw them in a movie I was like eeeww. Fine boy, nasty paws!!!

    LOLOL!…No comment on Desmond Elliot’s shirtless picture. Okay I have a problem with the tats. They should have used a better/darker ink. The colour is not vibrant at all. Or did they use markers? *Blank stare*

    Why are most nollywood actors have abs like a bowl of oatmeal. First Jim Iyke now Desmond – HIT THE GYM – we ladies need to see some six pack

    And as for Joseph Benjamin – mmmmm – i willl love to swap spit with him

    Nice shots! I think they should’ve allowed the wanna be “tattoos” to dry though!! lol!!
    Desmond should PLEASE trim his physique!!

  22. Ibo Omoge

    July 15, 2010 at 6:01 pm

    Okay, I can’t seem to get over Desmond’s face in the shirtless picture. Hehehehehehe.

    nollywood actors need to take a cue from psqaure, those guys know what a 6 pack looks like. while a 6pack is not a necessity, looking good is a necessity for showbusiness. desmond elliot looks like he feeds on eba and afang everyday, haba!

    I can say first hand that Egor works so passionately for her clients and her star lineup is unrivalled. Its great to see this showcase by Bellanaija and most of all, lets admit it !!! Nigeria has got Talent.!!!

    Love the tattoo .the first time I find tatts attractive in a guy. Desmond elliot should hit the gym. The other guy is delicious I love the spider web on his neck very sexy. If i were him I will make it permanent. I love guys with flat tight abs . Nija actors should hit the gym beg.

    Kai bella, please find a way to add “like/dislike” option to the comments….i must admit im lazy and it will save time in acknowleging funny replies. As for Des….bruv, i know women will think any type man is attractive depending on her taste, but you are in the business of looking good. A little less tantalizers and a little more home gym…Im just sayin’

  28. TallChica

    July 16, 2010 at 7:15 am

    in fact, des has a bigger chest than i do….so wrong on soo omany levels! His chick would hand him a bra because you know with chesties that big you need appropriate support….I’m just kidding…tis a bit harsh…but still….man boobs and he allowed the pics to be released…there is one thing to be said…he thinks he looks hot.

    u are saying ewww cos i said “SWAPPING SPIT” – well isnt that what they do all the time when the kiss on screen. What the hell did you think kissing was – KISSING IS SWAPPING SPIT – if you forgot.

    There is not one single nollywood actor with a six pack. Thats ridiculous. They dont care. So far as they get paid to act, everything else they dont care. They ladies are not better either except a handful of them. Genevieve, Kate, Stephanie etc.


    July 22, 2010 at 5:32 pm

    Nice pictures Des and Ben but Des’s fingernails should have been censored!lol

  34. lahlah

    July 24, 2010 at 3:49 pm
