    violated, forever, wasted years, true confession, scores to settle…just loved so many old Nigeria movies

  33. Sunshiney

    April 6, 2017 at 6:38 pm

    Started watching Nigerian movies around 2003-2004 and my favourites are:
    Games Women Play
    Black Bra
    The Wrong Woman
    Keeping Faith
    The Bridesmaid
    Crazy Passion
    Eagle’s Bride

    The was one starring Kenneth Okonkwo and Maureen Solomon but I cannot remember the name and an early Ini Edo movie where she lost her job and had to live on the beach.

    I miss those old Stella Damasus, Bimbo Akintola, RMD, Genevieve Nnaji and Zack Orji movies so much. The production quality has improved a lot but many of the new actors are just so mediocre.
