    My dad actually bought the first Nollywood movie I saw…I can't remember the title but it had Zack Orji and Sandra Achums in it…

    It was many years ago, and I was still in my early teens…my dad bought the movie (the first of many) as a way of improving family time in our household…once all chores had been completed on a certain day, usually during the weekends, we would all gather in the living room, or in dad's room, and watch a Nigerian movie together…

    Those family movie times sparked a lot of discussions as my parents attempted to educate/enlighten/correct us on so many issues, eg. prostitution, sex before/outside marriage, bribery, in-laws, taboos, rituals, the Church/christianity, etc…

    I still love watching Nollywood movies till date because being African, I can relate with them, and I continually find them (well, many of them) edutaining (that's educating and entertaining)informative, enlightening, and REAL.

  2. My mom used to watch Nigerian movies while getting her hair done. Most of the time she got her hair done outside of the home (we're in Canada) so I would hear of these funny plots but I personally never saw the movies.

    Then a friend of hers loaned her some movies, and although I watched a few, I was often discouraged if they were only in Yoruba (my grasp of Yoruba isn't that great), but some of the movies were in English so that was better.

    But what changed it all is when I watched a movie called Worlds Apart that had a great plot. It really resonated with me. Then of course there was the whole craze about the Jenifa movies, and when my cousin sent me Parts 1 and 2 of the movie I was so happy. I was shocked at how things took such a different, darker turn in part 2 but at the same time I thought it was an interesting look into a life I knew nothing about. Another movie that stayed in my mind featured Funke Akindele too, it was called Aye Olomo Kan…that one was so good that I intend to get my own copy asap.

    The next time I'm in Nigeria, I'm buying myself a bunch of movies…I'm hooked for sure! It's a great way for me to connect with a culture that I never got to fully experience.

    I started watching Nollywood movies when i was a little kid. My first Movie was Living in Bondage, i found it very interesting that i still recall some part of the movie.My whole family enjoy watching Nollywood movies and we can watch movies for the whole day without caring so much about food.i was so much into it that i grew up watching nothing but these Movies. I spend all my free times watching movies and am a fan of lots of the actors/actress.

    I love Nigerian Movies so much because i started watching them right from my childhood and that has become a part of my life,i got to discuss the movies with family and friends, and i learnt so much lessons from them and also have fun too. i feel like am a big Super fan of Nigerian movies because Am addicted to it, i can't stay for a whole week without watching them, am always current with new movies infact i have seen these two movies listed above but don't mind having them. i post a lot of Nollywood movie trailers for my friends to watch out and i also suggest movies and movies sites for them, they always come back asking for more movies to watch and i never disappoint them….I see myself as a big lover of Nollywood Movies :)

    I've been watching Nigerian movies from the womb, like, i was born with it. My mum loves them so much(especially the yoruba ones) and apparently, it was one of the many "hereditary genes" i inherited froom her.lol.i don't think i could EVER stop watching them. one has to be crazy not to want to watch nigerian movies(some of them, cos there are some that are just whack jobs) because they are so educative and interesting to watch(the actors make a part of the 'good to watch' aspect of nollywood cos they

    I first watched a Nigerian movie on TBN Zambia titled Christ in me.

    I like the story lines, props and the outfit

  9. Adaeze says:

    My history of watching Nigerian movies is quite deep. I started when I was like 3 years old. Though I can't recollect all the movies I watched then but I am sure that the real hardcore Nigerian movie watchers can never forget movies like Taboo, Onome, Obiorah and the rest lol… However my late father was the one who literally infused the Nigerian movie syndrome into me. Back then when they were still made on video tapes, he would go out and buy over 15 of them and he always wanted me to watch them with him because then they had moral lessons, unlike now lol, a day never went by in my house without us watching a Nigerian movie. I remember watching one called 'My Grandfather My friend', (i think Kanayo O Kanayo was in it) a very good movie that taught a lot about peer pressure and all the things a good young girl in secondary school can face in the hands of bad materialist friends. I loved it, learnt a lot from it and it was very emotional too. I just loved the way it was acted and how real they made it look. There were other movies that hypnotised me alongside this one amongst them are Evil Men, Full Moon… e.t.c. I have always loved Nigerian movies because there was always something to learn form them, unlike some of the recent ones which just give me jokes lol. I still love watching them because they are very interesting, extremely relaxing and I just can't to without them. Besides, I really can't think of any other kind of movie to watch while eating except a Nollywood movie!!!! lol

    Hi Nolly,

    Thanks for this opportunity for this free movie giveaway.

    I started watching african movies (Ghana & Nigerian) since I was about 7 years old. Back then in Ghana it was all anout Ghanaian movies. I became in love with our movies when I came to Canada with my sister in 1994. My parents had already got some few Ghanaian movies in the house. We'll always watch them for closure because we missed being back home. Back then Nigerian movies wasn't popular at the store where we got them so we always stick with the Ghana ones.

    My first Nigerian movie was Glamour Girls starring Eucharia, Ngozi, Zack Orji, Liz Benson and many other vetran actors. This movie was brilliant and it shall remain a classic. After Glamour Girls, we became a fan of the Nigerians movies and short after our distributor started selling more and more Ghana and Nigerian movies. We felled inlove with our movies and believe me back then it cost $20.00 a movie. Up until the VCD/DVD's came out we had bought about 500 movies in the house.

    Genevieve Nnaji played the only child in most of all the Nigerian movies and she always stood out.

    Almost every Nigerain movie that came out starred Genevieve Nnaji and Emeka Ike, Ramsey Nouah Jnr. Patience O, Zack Orji, Liz Benson, Eucharia, Ngonzi, Sandra Achums, Pat Attah, Kanayo O. Kanayo, Segun Arinze, Justus Esiri, Hilda D., Clem, Pete Odochie, Franca Brown, Nkiru Sylvanus, Clarion Chukumera, Charles Okarfor, Fred Amata, Pete Eneh, Alex Usifo, Sam Loco-Efe, RMD and it was always a great movie. The movies that came out back in the day were brilliant and there were only one part. We still bought them when it was parts 1&2. I got my friends hooked on watching Nigerian movies especially with Genevieve in it. I was always ready for any movie I see Genevieve's face on the cover.

    When Ghana and Nigerian started doing the collaboration was a wonderful idea and they did bring out a lot of amazing movies. Rita Dominic, Jim Iyke, and Chidi Mokeme started coming out remarkable performance.

    My most memorable movies from back in day are: Keeping Faith (Genevieve, RMD, Bimbo, Olu & Joke)Paint My Love, Love and Pain, The Web, Lost Hope, Last Weekend, Hour of Grace, When God Says Yes, Beloved, Pastor and a Harlot, Identity, All My Life, Saviour, Blood Sisters, The Intruder, Formidable Force, Eye Opener, Discovery, The Peace Maker, My Good Will, Submission, Cry For Help, My Ftaher's Love, The Pope Must Hear This, Love Affai, POwer of love, Hatred, Gone Forever, Conspiracy, Authority, Naomi, Broad Day Light, Lady Bianca, Rip Off, Evil Forest……… and many more.

    Back then the movies had morals, education, culture, life incidence, a powerful message at the end of every movie.

    This is how I came about watching Ghanaian and Nigerian movies and till this date I still watch them. Thank GOD it's cheaper now, lol. Genevieve Nnaji, Ramsey Nouah, Rita Dominic, Jim Iyke has always stood and made it very wonderful experience for me, my family and friends.

    BEST ACTORS OF ALL TIME: MS GENEVIEVE NNAJI AND MR. RAMSEY NOUAH JNR.

    I would love to win, but I'm also glad just to tell how I got started watching Nollywood movies. Wellllll, one day my husband and I (we are in our early 50's) were just killing time at the flea market. We passed a vendor that had a lot of movies on the table, so we went and took a look. When we found out that they were African movies we started to walk away, because we thought they were not in English. Well the seller said that they are in English and that we should buy one. We brought Blood Sisters on his recommendation and when home to watch it. Take was about 3 years ago. We must have a collection of over 100 movies by now. We can't get enough movies. We always play Blood Sisters to people who visit and they are hooked.

    We have so many favorites, Blood Sisters, Wrong Passion are just 2 of our favorites. We enjoy just about anything with Patience Ozorkwor, Osuofia, Genenvieve Nnaji, Ramsey Noah, Mercy Johnson, Mike Ezeruonye.

    We are not African, but of West Indian descent and often can relate to many of the family interactions. I will always continue to watch Nolly & Golly movies. I only wish I could understand when some phrases are spoken in native languages, although we usually can infer as to their meaning.

    Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to tell my story.

    oh nolly, am so glad u brought this topic up. though i have seen the movies aforementioned, i still feel very honoured sharing my story coupled with my experiences about movies with you and the visitors of this site.

    i love movies sooo much. all this began when i was about 6years old. i had this aunt who loved movies so much…she basically had a special book where she listed all the movies she watched, d advertisements she saw, and the movies she would love to buy n watch. lol…if she watched any movie, she would then pck up a pen and tick the title of the movie.aww..how i miss her much…

    i watched her while growing up as she took really care of me,we shared a room together…she was also doing her NYSC…everyday she went 4 service, she came with new movies…it was like a religion 2 her…lol…

    i enjoyed watching them…these movies thought me a whole bunch of lessons i much confess…take a look @ some of d movies listed above, when it comes 2 evil…wen u giv ur lyf 2 d devil, he will take everything back in multiple folds…u lose ur dear ones, ur wealth, job n bcom a shadow of urself, @ times, it even results 2 death…what of armed robbery? dey end up DEAD by firing squad or by being burnt just as d movie beyong belief which showcases d lives of d most dangerous armed robbers nigeria ever had…(anini, dereco etc)..prostitution leads 2 unwanted babies, and diseases sucha as Aids, Stds.

    well having been watching nollywood movies ever since i was seven and i must really commend what they've been doing becos no matter how people say the movies are off standard you will see something to learn from it and lastly,even people say their content are still somehow local to me i think our culture should always come first.

  16. Kapasa says:

    I first watched Christ in me on TBN Zambia at a time I had no idea what so ever about Nollywood and Nigeria as a country that is reach in making movies. I was so amazed to watch a movie from Nigeria and learnt that there were other and several movies. Then I was given a VHS video cassette for Aki na Popo and then He goat by a friend of mine who had nollywood videos and well informed as regards the same.

    I love them because they depict the african way of living and How somehow corrupt some individuals are in Nigeria and the Gap between the rich and the poor when it comes to mingling and marriage

  17. aegoli says:

    I started watching Nolly wood in 1992 I think, that was with Living in Bondage…we were only allowed to stay up late on friday nights. My mum had gotten the movie earlier in the week, and my sibblings and i were all in our best behaviors all week so we could be allowed to watch the movie on friday night. we finished our chores early that evening, and were all excited about the movie.

    My mum said that she was going to send us to bed if it turned out to be too scary for kids. We started on the movie, and everythg was looking good until chief omego wanted to make out with one of his younger wives, my mum decided to send us to bed, as she felt the scene might be to matured for us…u can imagine our reactions, we wailed and pleaded until she compromised by sending us out of the room until the scene was over…lol

    ever since, we became hooked, and nollywood movies became a family thg. We alwaz used that time to bond as a family. The only skeptical audience was my dad, as he couldn't understand why all the movies eventually ended with native doctors, diabolical and fetish thgs.

    With time, my sis n I became such addicts that we registered with all d video clubs then back in the early 2000, and they alwaz called us whenever they bought new movies. I still enjoy watching it until nw bc it is a good form of entertainment for me, and also reminds me a lot of home. So many times i watch movies, and i call my sister n tell her…hey girl u got to see this one…lol

  18. Onyekachi Odobra says:

    have yu ever seen the movie total Abandon, I was going through the same with a character, and the movie gave me a clue of what i was going to face, i put the events upside down so it could suit my experience cause Nigerian movies could be very funny in story line so i had a silly way out of a mess that gave me migraine, so i started watching Naija Movies upsidedown.

  19. jamila says:

    Cant remember the year exactly but it was around 1992/1993 think i was about 7, with living in bondage. I totally enjoyed the movie and got hooked.

    Tho living in bondage was the first naija movie i watched, the one that got me hooked was 'glamour girls' and 'flesh and blood' with ameze imarhiagbe…After watching those movies, there was no going back! it was nigerian movies or nothing! I registered with almost all the video clubs around and would use my last kobo to borrow or even buy naija movies.

    Because my dad hated naija movies, we'd have to sneak them in to watch. lol. It got so bad that my mum had to seize the video. But that didn't deter me, i would go to a neighbours house whose husband hated kids (don't know y) and watch through the window. She would open her curtains for me so i will be able to c from outside. smh. those wre d gd old days!

    It wasn't only d stry lines that got me addicted to the movies, but the actors/actresses themselves. I rem dem liz benson, gloria anozie, dolly unachukwu, eucharia, ameze imarhiagbe (excellent actress..wonder whre she is nw), jennifer okere, Ego Boyo, Regina Askia, ngozi ezeonu….those wre d bg grls of nollywood then. Then franca brown (always wicked), hilda dokubo (suffering), Joke Silva, Clarion (very cantacarous,lol), sandra achums, Bimbo Akintola, suzan patrick, obot etuk, pete edochie, Chidi Mokeme, Jim Iyke, Rita Dominic, gogo omgo gogo (no. 1 herbalist), ramsey noah, kanoyo, ejike asiegbu, rmd, saint obi, charles kafor, pat attah, emeka ike, patrick doyle (pastor), keppy ekpeyong, bob-manuel, stella damascus, patience ozokwor, ifeanyi ikpoenyi, kate henshaw, omotola, justus esiri, Zack Orji, sonny macdon west, victoria inyama, Francis Duru etc etc

    I rem d frst movie i saw genevieve play a major role was 'amina' pt 2. After watchng dt movie I knew instantly dt genevieve was born to act. Before then i'd seen her in 'most wanted' as a reporter. lol. After watchng amina, any movie i saw gnevieve in i'd borrow. and thnk God they all turned out to be nice.

    My most memorable n all time favrte movies are forever, evil men, glamor girls, flesh and blood, violated, out of bounds, dead end, sakobi, silent night, domitilla, onome, all my life, confidence, submission, goodbye tomorrow, shame(with rmd n eucharia), without love, chain reaction, scores to settle, terrible sin, true confession, confusion, etc etc.

    The movies made more sense back then and there was always a lesson to learn at d end of each movie. Wish it remained dt way :( not withstandng, i stl love n watch nollywood movies n will always be a fan!

    Thnks nolly for givn me ds opportunity to share my stry.

  20. I first fell in love with Nolly movies when I seen the handsome Richard Mofe Damijo in Scores To Settle….I was captived on how well he made you believe his charater….Then when he played in the Intruder as the artist…I really feel in love. I later began to watch more and more. It didn't matter how old or new they were…The best one I say was My Story with Omotola Jalade! Man….!! When she played the old woman's character I was hooked! It was so believeable….the things she did to gain wealth in that movie was shocking! The funniest to me are 4 play and The Games that Men Play! I really like Tonto Dikeh she's so cool. I read her story about her mom passing when she was 3 and how she doesn't speak…I had much in common with her! I later saw her in total love and love the way she spoke pegin…I like her in My Fantasy…she went cray in that film…very believeable! OMG! And lasty, Mr. Van Vickr…what can I say…speechless! There you have it! I watch atleast 2 Nolly movies a day…especially on my down days. It's always a treat for me! Thanks for holding this contest would have never known this was going on until coming to the site. Cecilia Adaku
