Nollywood produces quite an array of stereotypes in their movies; ones that range from lover boys, cry babies, wicked stepmothers, ritualists to comedians and to just mention a few. One funny thing is the fact that Nigerians find it hard to detach these actors’ acting prowesses from their personal lives -The other day, Kanayo O. Kanayo lashed out at fans who would stop calling him a ritualist in real life.
Here, we take a look at 16 Nollywood acts and their stereotypes.
1 Pete Edochie
He counts his words slowly but has more action than an AK-47, he could kill an entire village from his backyard. He is also the benchmark for Nollywood wisdom especially for the Eastern part of the country. Every heard of Pete Edochie proverbs?
2. Kanayo O Kanayo
Ritualism personified – Baddest ritualist ever liveth. Look left and right and if there is no money, someone gets missing in the family. The true definition of every man for himself. He his doing well now, mans bagged a degree in Law recently.
3) Olu Jacobs
King of the North-llywood. If you’re watching a film and he’s not the king, you have to wake up because that is obviously a dream. Nollywood is not worthy of you sir.
4) Mercy Johnson
Jack of all roles, master of all; currently demoted to Nollywood tout, she sabi sha. Don’t forget her ‘assets’ too.
5) Jim Iyke
Even in the movies with village settings he still has an accent, master of ‘I just got back’ roles. Mostly arrogant and pompous. ‘He doesn’t give a fhuck mehn’ but when he falls in love her falls hard.
6) Chiwetel Agu
As you see him now he’s running to the native doctor, thinking of who to kill since he has run out of brothers. Chief Chieftancy title holder. He will sell his mother so far he is gaining from the deal
7) Genevieve Nnaji
Rich gang, she only takes up rich people’s roles. No difference between her real life and movie persona -The poise and elegance speak for themselves.
8) John okafor
Nollywood’s Mr Bean, he earns money just for being foolish, he’s funny as hell.
9) Chioma Chukwuka Akpotha
Good girl gang, she no get wahala, modern day Mary, only time she’s a bad girl is when she’s a twin. Lowkey she is joining bad gang with her clique of Uche Jombo, Omoni Oboli and Ufuoma McDermott.
10) Joke Silva
Mature in real life, mature in movies, mature in marriage. She’s the only ‘Silver’ medal that Nigeria has now. You should see one of her latest movies entitled “Diamond in the sky” -A very nice watch.
11) Nkiru Sylvanus
So innocent, she cries more than the Michael Jordan memes, she once brought out emotions from satan himself.
12) Hanks Anuku
Nollywood’s own Al Pacino, author and finisher of bad gang. Always coming back from America Mehn!
13) Nkem Owoh
He has something to say concerning every situation, more cunning than the tortoise; he’s so stingy he can beg from a beggar.
14) Patience Ozokwor
Modern day Jezebel, ‘worst mother-in-law ever liveth. Poisonist, problemist, envyist etc. Don’t marry her son if you can’t give birth to a baby boy the following day after traditional wedding.
15) Funke Akindele aka Jenifa
Once threatened to beat Satan up. HEAD NO DEY HAUZ. She created her very own accent
16) Omotola Jalade Ekehinde
She fine die, anti-oldage, niggas she could give birth to two times over are still tripping for her. She’s only acting rich now.
