What was the 1st Nollywood movie you ever saw? Do you remember your first Nollywood movie experience?

In a Twitter chat with Pulse Nigeria, Linda Ejiofor, who plays Bimpe on “Tinsel,” revealed hers to be the classic “Living in Bondage.”

The 1992 movie starred Kanayo O Kanayo, Kenneth Okonkwo, Francis Agu among others.

It’s Thursday and the best day to revisit the beginning; the movies that got us interested in the Nigerian film industry, which releases more movies than its counterparts in a year.


Mine was the 1992 “Abused” which featured Stella Damasus.

However, unlike “Scores to Settle,” which was the 2nd Nollywood movie I saw, the scenes from “Abused” didn’t stick.

So what’s yours? What Nollywood movie do you remember seeing first, the one that turned you into a fan, or not?
