And while the year was a good year for Genny and everyone else on this list, they couldn’t avoid the controversy that trailed them too.
Grab a bottle of Coke and popcorn and enjoy how your favorite Celebs starred in some of the biggest controversies of the year.
Genevieve Nnaji Stars As Mama G In ‘The Ruckus During AFRIFF Closing’
The superstar actress was at the early stages of promoting her producing debut Road To Yesterday during the AFRIFF closing gala. Taking the Ishaya Bako directed feature to the AFRIFF event to be the closing movie of the night, Genevieve Nnaji however literally shut down the event.
The Screen Queen reportedly separated her creme de la creme guests from the “normal people” and caused quite an unwelcome stir at the event, leading to a social media war of mixed reaction from her fans.
And if this were to be a movie, you know Genny would be playing the role of one of the biggest Nollywood female villains of all time aka Mama G
Toke Makinwa In ‘Me, My Husband, An Alleged Baby Mama & The Rest Of Nigeria’
Toke Makinwa made headlines for months this year when the news of her husband’s alleged infidelity broke. The media personality who got married just two years before to her long-term beau, Maje Ayida was said to be in a marriage with a man who was not only cheating on her, but who had knocked up his side chic.
Toke who has a Vlog where she dishes out relationship advice, was immediately dragged by different people. While the reaction to her marriage issues had been mixed, the radio girl had gone about business like nothing happened.
But when you’re popular and stuff like this happens, you most definitely land on this list.
Toyin Aimakhu Vs Stella Damasus 2.0 In ‘The Doris Simeon/Daniel Ademinokan Saga’ Season 2
When you’re an Actress, then you probably do not realise the cameras have stopped rolling and you carry the drama meant for the screen into everyday life.
That seemed to be the issue with Alakada actress Toyin Aimakhu and her colleague Stella Damasus some months ago.
After Doris Simeon and her estranged husband Daniel Ademinokan had aired their laundry in public, giving us all front row tickets to their marriage drama, we thought it was all the juice we could ever get.
However, because this is Nollywood and there is always a Part 2, months after, Stella Damasus revisited a post Toyin Aimakhu made months before.
In what she termed reading hate mails/posts, Stella took her time to discuss what she felt was Toyin throwing shade at her.
And again, what we all thought was over, was given a new beginning.
Nigerian AMAA Delegates In ‘Stranded In South Africa’
While it was not exactly Twitter’s number one trending topic when it happened, some of the top Nigerian filmmakers who attended the AMAA 2015, did not return to the country when they would have preferred.
And while reports swirled about the possibility of these delegates being stranded, only subtle statements were made regarding it.
But what was certain was these filmmakers did not return when they would have liked to.
Onyeka Onwenu Vs Patience Ozokwor In ‘Jonathan’s Main Chic’
The election period might be way behind us but it did not happen without drama.
Earlier this year, This Day reported that two Nollywood heavyweights Onyeka Onwenu and Patience Ozokwor went off at each other all because of Jonathan.
And while you might be thinking they were both trying to be his Olivia Pope, the two women reportedly had nasty words for each other because Patience had gone behind Onyeka to the President, something Onyeka thought was shady.
And while reports claim this fight was nasty, Patience Ozokwor and Onyeka Onwenu denied it.
Oh well, we do hope it was a lie.
However, lie or not, the two women made headlines.
Tonto Dikeh And Gideon Okeke In ‘Much Ado About Mr X’
When Tonto Dikeh shocked us all by getting married to Mr X some months back, we were all pleased. However, when Tinsel hottie Gideon Okeke sent out this tweet, the room got darker…
And then Tonto replied with this…
If this is not the most interesting controversy in 2015, I wonder what is.
Toyin Aimakhu And Adeniyi Johnson In ‘Titanic: The Marriage Version’
Toyin Aimakhu and Adeniyi Johnson’s marriage hit the rocks this year due to alleged infidelity on Mr Johnson’s part.
And now, months later, the two still seem to be apart. However, Nigerians have refused to let this go and most fans have been pleading with Toyin to return to her marriage while others are telling Mr Johnson he’s a fine man and he’d find another woman.
We wonder what Mr Johnson’s DMs look like these days.
Segun Arinze And Emeka Ike In ‘Mr President’
Just in case you thought the White House or Aso Rock is the only presidential seat people fight for, then you would be surprised to know people fight for the Actor’s Guild Of Nigeria’s presidency too.
Segun Arinze and Emeka Ike have both been in a war of words (we hope that’s all it is)over who should be the rightful president of AGN. Segun said Emeka Ike was going about it the wrong way and refused to do it through the due process.
Emeka on the other hand, said Segun was an illiterate who thought he could shove Ibinabo the current president in their faces.
The two who co-starred in the classic flick Silent Night have during the past months, directly called each other out via the media.
Oh well, ain’t nothing silent about this feud.
