Cuddlemii: Nice topic!

Aye Toto, Aye Akamora - I started with this. I loved it because it was cultural/traditional. Always looked forward to it after Newsline on Sundays.


Checkmate - Loved this, it was star studded and interesting. All those adverts/commercials associated with the soap opera added spice to it.


Agbara Nla- Yay, loved this too because of the spiritual combats and all. The theme song was fun too..***Agbara toju Agbara lo****


Things Fall Apart - hehehe...Okonkwo!!! I love the theme song..***things fall apart, that the kettle can not hold things fall apart, fall apart fall apart***
I used to call it kettle and not center, lolz


Kunta Kinte - The whole slavery ish was pitiful.


When You Are Mine- I bought the DVD and didn't go to bed that night. This was a very good one! Very creative and interesting.


Maria The Los Angeles- I saw this because of Orquidea Cordoba Escalante and her romance with that man that lost of hand or something.


Secret Of The Sand was not bad. Loved the concept & theme.


Rentaghost, dr who, frank spencer- those British actsgrin grin grin


Halo halo- that ashewo french man that was a player made me like this. Their accents were funny.


Every other one listed by the op, I have seen and enjoyed.


What is the name of the one with Miguel(john tucker must die main actor) or whatever, I refused to see it cos of the hype, my school mates made me loose interest.
Passions you mean ? Where you have Sheridan, Miguel, Chad, Beth, Timmy, The wicked Miss Tabitha and the likes of other as the cast. Used to go crazy for this Soap Opera
Re: Past Soap Operas/telenovas You'll Love To Watch Over And Over Again by SIRBANYE(m): 7:39am On Oct 05, 2012
New masquerade was the bomb, the opening song was sensational. I would never forget Clarus, giringori, zebudaya, natty and the rest. Shows like that was what made growing up in the 80s and 90s golden. Not forgetting sunday rendavous with limca and goldspot, then nigerians had sometin to dance about every sunday afternoon after church. Damn I miss those good old days.

toba: I remember back then, whilst growing up in the days when we had limited television channels to watch, that we had to make do with whats available. I think it was Just NTA 10, NTA 2 channel 5, NTA 7, LTV8 and OGTV all of which were Government owned that used to operate on our airwaves. No DSTV and the only Satellite provider available was ABG.

These stations made us love watching TV with primetime programmes especially with foreign soap operas that took the airwaves. Some of these soaps/Telenovelas are the best ever and one can only reminiscence these soaps. The old folks would remember some, whilst some new folks would remember some of the new ones that have recently been aired .

Some of the soaps will be highlighted below

NO ONE BUT YOU (NTA 10)
THE RICH ALSO CRY
ISURA THE SLAVE GIRL
SECRET OF THE SAND
WILD ROSE Rosa Salvaje
LADY OF THE ROSE
WHEN YOU ARE MINE (CUANDO SEAS MIA)
THE GARDENERS DAUGHTER
CATALINA AND SEBASTIAN
SECOND CHANCE
Camila
SANTA BABRA
THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL
YOUNG AND RESTLESS
MARIA DE LOS ANGELES
La mujer el de janeiro
and many others. These are the few i can remember for now.
