Yesterday we brought to you the movie that grossed the highest in its opening weekend in Nigeria in 2015.
Today, we are bringing to you the actors who featured in at least two of the box office hits in Nollywood in 2015.
Some of these names might be new and some of these people might not be your regular Nollywood A-listers but they are most definitely going to be bankable if they keep making career choices like this one.
Here are the Actors who featured in more than one movie in the most commercially successful movies category in 2015.
Nse Ikpe Etim
Nse Ikpe Etim’s face can sell movies of any kind both in Asaba Nollywood and “new” Nollywood. The award winning Actress has been able to prove that a couple of times in the past.
This past year, Nse reminded us of that fact when she became one of the major casts of top movies Fifty and The Visit.
Omoni Oboli is taking no prisoners in her bid to rule Nollywood. The Actress in the past year alone made box office history as a Producer/Actress in her successful personal effort The First Lady and as an Actress in the box office hit Fifty.
This means Omoni Oboli featured in the category of highest grossing movies not just as an Actress in two movies but as a Producer in one of these movies.
Here’s our golden girl, Ladies and gentlemen.
After being Mr M for such a long time, Mr Jacobs decided to continue taking major steps about picking the right movies in his career.
He seemed to have done something right though because he is the only male actor who appears in two of the highest grossing movies of 2015.
With a major role in The Visit which grossed 14million and Taxi Driver which grossed 22.66million, the M after the Mr might as well be for Money.
Good one, Mr M.
In the year 2015, we saw Chigul transition from the comedian on our small screens to an actress on our big screens.
After featuring in highly publicised Road To Yesterday alongside Nollywood great Genevieve Nnaji and Out Of Luck, Chigul easily took her place in this list.
And you know featuring in two movies that top the box office success in a year is no beans. So hello, Chigul is not here to play.
Kemi Lala Akindoju
Kemi Lala Akindoju has a strong fanbase in the theatre but do not sleep on her abilities to take over the big screen.
The Actress lands on our list of Actors who appeared in two out of the most commercially successful movies of 2015 because of her efforts in Fifty which grossed in 50 million at the box office in 2015 and Tunde Kelani’s Dazzling Mirage which grossed in 22.63million.
All hail the dazzling princess making her way to the very top in Nollywood.
