How many in the list have you watched?
And there were just some Nigerian movies every movie buff had to have in their collection and here are some of the most popular ones amongst Kenyans.
The Stolen Bible
This movie has one of the most WTF scenes in movie history. A scene where Kate Henshaw playing the role of a nun approaches the statue of Jesus to beg for mercy only for ‘Jesus’ to come to life and chase her down.
Sakobi- The Snake Girl
Nothing scares a pre-teen quite like a girl that turns into a snake. This 1998 movie turns the ‘scare-on’ right off the bat when Sakobi transforms from a snake into a woman.
Who doesn’t love a good tear-jerker? The Price tells the story of Pastor Ken who goes through a very rough patch in life but still maintains his faith and undying devotion to God.
Aki na Ukwa
We first came across Nollywood actors Osita Iheme and Chinedu Ikedieze in the popular Nigerian comedy. The two actors provided the perfect dose of cheekiness and laughter in the film. It became an international hit especially among kids as it wasn't as scary as most Nigerian movies at that time which had a lot of voodoo.
Highway to the Grave
It wouldn’t be a throwback list without this 1998 classic that was directed by Teco Benson and produced by Helen Ukpabio.
It tells the story of the ultimate femme fatale Sonia (Regina Askia) who leads men to their doom with her beauty.
It seems that 1998 was a good year for Nigerian films as they brought yet another hit ‘Suicide Mission’.
The movie follows the story of Austin, his wife Winnie and side piece Monique. In a bid to get Austin to do her bidding, Monique employs some ‘juju’ and puts her love into a bottle.
Osuofia in London
In this popular Nigerian flick, Osuofia (Nkem Owoh) is left with a lot wealth after the death of his brother Donatus in London, viewers get to watch what happens when a villager takes to the big city.
Scores to Settle
Movie director Chico Ejiro ropes in some of the best talents in Nollywood like Richard Mofe-Damijo, Liz Benson and Teco Benson to tell the story of a woman who was forced into the streets by her in-laws after the death of her husband.
