He is not entirely a new face to the screen business. He made his debut appearance on screen in the popular TV program ‘Tales by Moonlight’ where he acted as a homeless child but his first movie appearance was ‘Crossroads’ 1993.
5. Ramsey Nouah Jr.
Perhaps this guy is not supposed to be on this list, but this half-caste has refused to retire. Screen lover boy, Ramsey Nouah has perfected the art of re-inventing himself and showing he can still be a force to be reckoned with whenever this kind of list is being complied anywhere. He may be bald but he has still got those looks, mannerisms and style that wowed us in the past. So he stays on the list.
6. Blossom Chukwujekwu
Blossom Chukwujekwu is not as new as most of us may suppose. He has been around the corridors of the movie industry since 2009 when he landed the lead role in the yet to be released Nigeria soap opera “Portrait Of Passion”. In 2012, he was profiled on African Magic’s Nollywood show, Jara, as one of the top 5 actors to watch out for in 2013. Quite gynandromorphic in nature, Blossom has something of a feminine face, combined with a heavy masculine build which makes him a worthy candidate for this list. He won the Best Supporting Actor Award at the Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards this year (2015).
7. Michael Godson
Michael Godson Ifeanyichukwu, who shares certain similarities with Mike Ezuruonye and is also known in some circles as “Mr. Ini Edo,” hails from Imo state and has been on the entertainment scenes since 2010. The tag, “Mr. Ini Edo” came as a result of rumors of a sizzling romance between himself and the Akwa Ibom born super star actress, Ini Edo, although both of them have continually debunked the rumors. Since his debut in 2010, Godson has featured in over 100 movies. Handsome, cool, soft-spoken, charming and trendy are words you could use to describe the Imo-born actor. Little wonder he is on this list.
8. Desmond Elliot
Desmond Elliot is a man who knows what he wants and goes all out to get it. The actor cum gospel singer cum politician is equally the man of the moment.
9. Yul Edochie
This list will be almost entirely useless if this name is not on it. Yul Daniel Edochie isthe youngest child of veteran actor Pete Edochie. He is charmingly sexy and remains every woman’s dream, little wonder why he got married at the young age of 22. Since his big debut in 2005 with the movie titled “The Exquires” where he featured alongside the Late Justus Esiri and Enebeli Elebuwa, he has gone on to feature in over 200 Nollywood flicks.
10. Ebuka Obi-Uchendu
Ebuka Obi-Uchendu is a lawyer by profession and also an OAP who hails from Anambra state. His rise to fame cannot be detached from his participation in the first and only ever season of the popular reality show Big Brother Nigeria. Since then, he has not looked back. He has bagged several endorsement deals with several Nigerian companies and also featured in several shows. To his credit, he hosted the first ever presidential debate focused on youth issues in the run up to the 2011 general elections in Nigeria, and it was broadcast live across the country. His stock is rising in the entertainment industry, little wonder there was so much fuss when he got engaged to his heartthrob, Cynthia Obianodo on April 15th, 2015 in Lagos.
