Top 10 Best Old Nollywood Movies You Wouldn’t Forget In A Hurry

Below is a list of top old Nollywood movies you wouldn’t forget in a hurry if you are a film lover.

10. Domitila (1996): The movie was produced by Zeb Ejiro, starring Anne Njemanze. Domitilla is a landmark film in the Nigerian home movie industry. It is about ‘single girls’ and their (mis)-adventures in big cities. Ann Njemanze, became an instant movie star after acting the leading role.

The main story line was of how young girls get into in the quest to survive in big cities. Sometimes, they’re fuelled by greed, some other times by need, peer pressure and in the end the become morally derailed.

9. Blood Money (1997): Featured the likes of Zack Orji, Kanayo O. Kanayo, Francis Agu and Sam Dede. Directed and Written by Chico Ejiro. In the movie, a man lost his Bank job, and was drawn into the world of rituals where the only way for him was by taking the life of an another.

8. Glamour Girls (1994): Produced by Kenneth Nnebue featuring Liz Benson, Eucharia Anunobi, Gloria Anozie, Zack Orji, Barbra Odoh and Dolly Unachukwu.

In the movie, Sade, rejected by her in-laws, hits the streets with her two sons after the death of her husband. This was the beginning of a long journey marred by insecurity, death and poverty.

6. Igodo – The Land of the Living Dead (1999): I remember watching this movie, can’t get the year actually.

When one of the girl’s falls in love with the investigating police officer, story changed. The policeman later finds out that his lover is a member of the ‘Most Wanted’ criminal gang.

1. Living in Bondage: The movie is said to be the movie that brought Nollywood into existence. Released 1992 with run time – 2hr 43mins. It was directed by Chris Obi Rapu, written by Kenneth Nnebue. Starring; Kanayo O. Kanayo, Francis Agu (late), Okechukw Ogunjiofor, Kenneth Okonkwo (Andy), Nnenna Nwabueze (Merit), Bob-Manuel Udokwu and many others.
