12 best male actors of 2015

A lot of factors determine an actor’s value – box office numbers, award nominations and win, outstanding performance in movies, and critical respect.

In no particular order, check out our 12 best actors of the year;

1. Daniel K Daniel

Performances of actors like Daniel K Daniel in 2015, has us excited about the upcoming 2016 AMVCA nominees list (hopefully we will be seeing new talented names on the list.)

What’s not to love about the actor’s character ‘Boss Man’ in “A soldier’s Story?” He brought to the screen a different side we hadn’t seen in his acting years.

He also starred alongside Liz Benson in the movie “Mummy Dearest,” which was received positively by fans.

 

2. Femi Jacobs

Featuring in two critically acclaimed movies this year, Jacobs won won the 2015 AMVCA “Best Actor in a Comedy” award, once again proved his skill as a talented actor.

From his facial expressions to spoken words, the actor brought to life the character Adigun in “Taxi Driver.”

 

3. Odunlade Adekola

The chemistry and banter between the actor’s character, Taiwo,and Femi Jacobs’ Adigun in “Taxi Driver: Oko Ashewo” is everything.

The actor found a way to make the character a hilarious and interesting one to watch on screen.

4. Femi Branch

From the days of “Domino,” the actor has always proven to be the best villain, and he didn’t fail in the just released “Out of Luck.”

Branch once again delivered a stellar performance, reminding us why he’s our favorite formidable villain.

5. Alexx Ekubo

Alexx Ekubo is one actor who always has a way of being a source of comic relief, even in an action or dramatic film.

In Omoni Oboli’s hit comedy film “The First Lady,” the actor took his sense of humor to another level as Obama.

In what can be described the best performance of his acting career, the actor delivered a character worthy of earning him nominations in all “best actor in a comedy” category.

6. Deyemi Okanlawon

We could start with the amazing chemistry between the actor and Yvonne Nelson in the interesting and unforgettable movie “If Tomorrow Never Comes.”

Deyemi delivered a performance deserving of an AMVCA.

7. Ramsey Nouah

From his character as Pius in “Thy Will be Done”  to his outstanding performance in “Gbomo Gbomo Express,” asAustin Mba, the actor didn’t fail to remind us why he’s a veteran, and also considered one of the best.

The actor won the much coveted AMVCA 2015 “Best Actor”award for his role in the action thriller “Secret Room.”

If that’s not enough to have him on everyone’s top 10 actors list.

9. Chinedu Ikedieze

We saw a different Ikedieze in the much talked about Omoni Oboli’s “The First Lady.” Every movie lover is used to watching the actor as a comic and ‘unserious’ character.

In “The First Lady,” he was this serious adult who was confused, and needed to fix his life. And did he deliver the character perfectly? – Yes.

While he didn’t get to crack viewers up, it was interesting to watch him interpret the character Kenechukwu.

10. Gbenro Ajibade

We are all so used to watching the actor as the soft Soji on “Tinsel,” but the actor proved his versatility in the must watch “Gbomo Gbomo Express.”

What’s not to love about the funny, tough, deep and interesting character Filo, brought to life by Ajibade?

11. Tope Tedela

Ever since the actor won the 2014 AMVCA “best actor” award for his role in “A Mile from Home,” he became most people’s favourite actor to watch on screen.

In 2015, the actor featured in two hit action thrillers – “A Soldier’s Story,” and “Out of Luck,” bringing to life characters fans have never seen him in.

The actor also plays a metrosexual in the upcoming Mildred Okwo’s movie, “Surulere.” while we are yet to see the movie, every movie lover can be sure the actor would be grabbing awards and nominations in 2016, for his character Kyle in movie.

12. Ali Nuhu

The king of Kannywood remained on top of his game, starring in interesting movies like Garejin Hassan,  Ma’ Aurata” “Gidan Kitso” among others.

He was also honoured with the “Outstanding Actor” award at the 19th African Film Awards 2015.
