Today, we look back at some of the old Nollywood movies that were the bomb when they were released but which, in retrospect, were quite hilarious and improbable. If you are looking for a perfect way to wrap up the weekend, let these Queens of Nollywood entertain you.

1. Sharon Stone.

Synopsis: “A callous playgirl suffers the consequences when her lifestyle undermined her chances with the one man that stole her heart.”

But here’s what to expect: Genevieve Nnaji as Sharon Stone, living her best life as a baby girl.

2. White Hunters.

Synopsis: “The story is about a group of girls who date only white men.”

With a cast comprising Ini Edo, Funke Akindele, Mercy Johnson, best believe it’s going to be chaotic.

3. Dumebi.

Dumebi is the movie that cemented Mercy Johnson’s role as an icon. There’s nothing anyone else can tell me.

Synopsis: “A village girl is sent out from her house to locate the father of her child, a financial consultant in the city, but her problems begin when she forgets her baby in the cab.”

You knowwww this one will be premium drama.
