We Ranked The Best Old Nollywood Campus Queens

March 11, 2021

One of the absolute best parts of old Nollywood has to be all the baddies that we had, and sometimes when we’re lucky we’ll have as much as five in one movie. Today, we are ranking all the actresses who often played campus baddies.

Mercy Johnson

Mercy Johnson was always the best choice to play the new girl who just came to the campus and is wearing unnecessarily baggy clothes but is going to dethrone the campus’ queen B in two weeks. The way Mercy Johnson always switched up from the baggy Mary-Amaka skirt and the village-girl naivety to a spaghetti top and denim skirt shorter than my pinky and with more street knowledge than all the city girls put together is a transition even Tiktokers today can’t recreate.

Ini Edo

I can’t think of a better way to explain it but Ini Edo is one of those sweet queen B’s that somehow always wins. She’s a ten over ten in every area and hardly ever chooses violence, but when she does, she wins.

Oge Okoye

The main reason Oge Okoye is in the top three is that she is always ready to go from the charming queen of the campus to breaking a bottle on someone’s head without even switching up her stride. The fact that she never plays coy or pretends to not know she’s a bad bitch is just everything to me.

Rita Dominic

It’s not often you see a Nigerian woman in a movie with a cigarette in one hand and a gun in the other and all during her free period between GES 101 and HST103. A what? A queen. All the other queens in this list – whom I love and adore by the way – often prefer to play the long game and ascertain their opponent before making a move etc. However, campus queen Rita Dominic doesn’t do all of that. She’s direct, she’s violent and her makeup remains on point.

Genevieve Nnaji

Do you know why Genevieve is number one? Look at everything I’ve written about the other actresses, she has done worse and done it better in her campus-queen movies. Campus Queen Genevieve is the girl all the other girls want to be. She sows chaos and discord and yet looks like she hasn’t made a move. Do you know what it takes to call a couple making out at your birthday ‘couple of the day’ before telling them to get out then turning to someone and going ‘I don’t admit pigeons to my party’? Iconic behaviour.
