Movie industries all over the world are the haven of delectable women who glamourize our screens, not only with beauty but also razor sharp acting skills. From Hollywood to Bollywood and Nollywood, these extraordinary damsels wield their God-given gifts to play with the minds of people. To some producers, a ravishing beauty on the cast is as good as a box office hit.
In this era of ‘sex crusade’ where what sells is sex, sex, sex and maybe a little bit of violence, most producers believe if the talent of an actress doesn’t do the trick the sexiness she exudes is bound to get attention and surely a wave of followers in her wake.
Now, Nollywood has had its share of drop dead gorgeous women with extraordinary curves to nail a man to the wall. From the likes of Liz Benson, Regina Askia, Clarion Chukwura, to name a few to the power houses running the show now, Nollywood is surely at the top of the roof on the continent.
Of course, the power houses running the show now go in the likes of Omotola, Genevieve, Mercy Johnson, Chika Ika, Stella Damasus, Ini Edo and a few others. But Nollywood is producing them so fast these days even the so-called power houses are disappearing in the horizon.
There’s a new wave of very sexy women in Nollywood and they are not just lurking around any more, they are taking over. Faces of the Omotolas, Genevieves, and their ilk just don’t cut it any more, a new and sexy storm is rising in Nollywood and fast!
These fresh faces are not only young but also very hot, pretty, sexy and talented. They are winning top roles and driving them home with a little more than off-the-counter talents, beauty and curves, they are simply adorable and desirable. Here are the top ten:
10 new sexy storm rising in Nollywood:
Damilola Adegbite hasn’t been around for too long. She doesn’t need to be before she seizes the limelight. She has what it takes to be at the very top; beauty, talent and knock-me-silly curves.
She’s recently the toast of the cinemas where her “Flower Girl” is making waves. Damilola is the “Flower Girl”, a perfect role which must have come her way because she looks the part and tailor-made for the role. Michelle Bello, the producer, must have known Damilola is a ‘Flower’ that blossoms at every turn.
She made her mark in the high octane soap “Tinsel” playing the role of Thelma Duke but she has since left the soap train to try her hand in the movie world.
The television soap girl is currently wallowing in the euphoria of international attention after catching the eye of the world with her role as ‘Nurse Abigail’ in the popular television soap “Clinic Matters”. Lilian is one of the nominees to battle the likes of Mercy Johnson and Funke Akindele for the Africa Magic Viewer’s Choice Awards (AMVCA) Best Actress in a Comedy category.
She has plied her trade in “Estatea”, “Ayetu” and currently brandishing her talent and beauty in “Clinic Matters” and “Tinsel”.
Beautiful, alluring and sexy Beverly returned from the United Kingdom some years back to carve a niche for herself in Nollywood and what she has had so far is a little more than she bargained for. Just last year she stood shoulder to shoulder with the very best in the industry to compete for the FAB Magazine’s Most Stylish Actress, which was eventually won by Rita Dominic after beating the likes of Genevieve Nnaji, Omotola Jalade and Nse Itse-Akpan.
Also in 2010 she won‘Most Promising Talent’ at the Best of Nollywood Awards, and in 2011 she was City People’s ‘Fast Rising Actress’. She has featured in “Up Creek Without A Paddle”, “Stripped”, “Weekend Getaway” and many others.
Biola Ige is not exactly new in the industry but a condition that messed up her beauty took her off the scene for a while and now she’s back, looking as beautiful and sexy as ever. She has one of the sexiest eyes in the industry with a figure to die for.
She’s probably the only Hindu in the industry but this doesn’t bother Biola, her talent and her beauty remains the hook that drags home the big juicy roles for her. In four years she reportedly featured in over 20 films.
Collete came into the industry a few years ago but already she has a profile that would bedazzle any producer. Beautiful, talented and sexy but most people who have met Collete keep talking about her magnetic backside which tends to sing a song many could not help but follow.
She has several claims to stardom and they include “Strength of a Woman”, “Blue Blood”, “Raindrop”, “Two Can Play That Game”, “Amaka Mustapha” and a host of others.
With a look of a ‘damsel in distress’ Chelsea, unlike the ‘Spirit’ that bears her name, has such harmless beauty which it effects can only be felt in its intoxication. She shot into prominence in 2009 winning a nomination at AMAA (Africa Movie Academy Awards) and confirmed her presence on the scene the following year with AMAA’s ‘Most Promising Actress’, ZAFAA’s ‘Best Upcoming Actress’ and BON’s ‘Revelation of the Year’.
Her most popular flicks include “Two Brides and a Baby”, “Twist”, “Timeless Passions”, “Hood Rush” and others.
Now Tope Osoba is a genuine article, just what the doctor ordered when it comes to suaveness and sophistication wrapped up in beauty and brawn. She has also got a lot on her chest to want you to want to see her films even if they are as dry as the fig leaf during harmattan. She plies her trade in the Yoruba sector of the industry and the beau is sure coming into her element.
She was the ‘stripper’ that got the Senator in a twist of passion and obsession in late Bisi Komolafe’s “Igboro Ti Daru” and who could have blamed the hapless law-man under siege of Tope’s luscious cleavage. She has also starred in “Gucci Girls”, “Omo Tee”, “Oogun Mi”, “21 Million” among others.
Chika isn’t exactly Cossy Orjiakor, but this busty and beautiful Anambra State-born upcoming star is carved along the line of the likes of Mercy Johnson and maybe a little bit more easy on the eyes
She waltzed her way into limelight with awesome acts in “Dream Walker”, “Transformer”, “Akpati”, among others
Chita Agwu has everything going for her: beauty and talent. She has acted in over twenty movies and still counting. Her well-sculpted figure also makes her earn a living as a model.
