Ten Female Acts That Will Take Over From Omotola and Genevieve

For a very long time, we couldn’t get to see any movie in Nollywood, without seeing Omotola Jalade and Genevieve Nnaji. We were not complaining anyways, because, they are both not just beautiful but also very talented.

However, we are glad that Nollywood is moving forward not just in the story-lines, but also in the faces we see. It has gone beyond the time when we could count Nollywood acts on our fingers, but the present day has given opportunities to new talents, who have shown us that it is not only Omotola and Genevieve that have got the talents. ICampus brings to you top ten female acts, in no particular order of preference, that would be taking over from these acts.
Beverly Naya
Beverly Naya debuted with her scintillating role in Home in Exile, and she has not looked backed since then. Beverly studied Filmmaking and Scriptwriting at Rodhampton University, London, and has starred in quite a number of hit movies, including Up Creek Without a Paddle, Alan Poza, Weekend Getaway, Make me a Heart, When Love Happens,amongst others and has been awarded a couple of times.
Annabel Zwyndila
Having starred in so many movies including Common Ground, Twisted Union, Beauty, Painful Sin, Motive for Murder, among others, the Adamawa state-born actress is currently the toast of many producers, as she is currently shuttling different states and countries with filmmakers, who see her as the next biggest thing in Nollywood.
Chelsea Eze
The English Language graduate of University Maiduguri featured in Two Brides and a Baby, Twist, Timeless Passions, Hood Rush and others. She proved herself to the world as an actress to reckon with in her first movie entitled, Silent Scandals. Surprisingly, her amazing performance earned her an AMAA (Africa Movie Academy Awards) nomination in the same year, 2009. Expectedly, she went on to win the award the following year as the ‘Most Promising Actress’, AMAA 2010.
Linda Ejiofor

Linda Ejiofor is a Nigerian actress and model known for her role as Bimpe Adekoya in M-Net’s TV series Tinsel.

Linda Ejiofor has now replaced Helen Paul on Jara Show.
Weruche Opia
Weruche Opia is known for  Bad Education (2012), Bad Education Movie (2015),When Love Happens (2015). She is more of an international act, but her debut in Nollywood in When Love Happens is awesome.
