Some Nigerian musicians have made their debut into the Nollywood scene. Some we totally loved, others we hoped would find their way back to they know how to do best - music.

From Tu Face Idibia in 'Head Gone,' to Iyanya in 'Super Star,' check out 7 musicians that have appeared in Nollywood movies.

Here we go;

1. Ice Prince – House of Gold

The movie starred the singer as Tony, Yvonne Nelson’s cover-up lover. ‘House of Gold’ also starred Eddie Watson, Majid Michel, Francis Odega, Omawumi Megbele among others.

The movie told the story of a business mogul and a socialite, Dan Ansah Williams who is dying of cancer and has been told that he has six weeks left to live. He makes a decision with the help of his attorney to call all his children back home, most of whom were born out of wedlock and various illicit affairs. The re-union spins a lot of surprises as each child returns with an agenda, which gives hilarious results.

2. Omawumi Megbele

The singer who has featured in over 7 movies, can be called a professional actress. Have you watched her on screen? Omawumi is one actress who comes on screen with so much energy.

Omawumi played a minor role in the 2009 edition of the V-Monolugues, a play that reflects the negative issues affecting women in Nigeria.

 She had a minor role in the 2011 movie Inale, a Hollywood/Nollywood Bongos-Ikwe production, which starred her alongside Hakeem Kae Kazeem, Dede Mabiaku, and  Ini Edo.
