5 Old Nollywood Movies You Need To Watch Again

September 20, 2020

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 (the dirty girl) - YouTube

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.

Watch here: Dumebi

4. Blackberry Babes

This movie was an instant blockbuster. Here’s the official synopsis:

From the Producer behind the Nollywood Hits – “Beyonce and Rihanna“, “White Hunters“, “Girls Cot” and “Life Partners“. Simony Pictures Introduces BLACKBERRY BABES (BBB) Damisa (Oge Okoye) and her friends (Tonto DikehMary RemmyAnnie Macaulay) are the Blackberry Babes, their economic, social and dating lives are organised and pay homage to a connected mobile world.
