|Nollywood Stars Who Can Make It In Hollywood by queen2(f): 3:05pm On Jan 25, 2006|
Most Nollywood stars dream of making it to Hollywood one day, while many have got what it takes, NFN picks the first fifteen, people who have the language, the looks and the attitude to look and act Hollywood and if given the chance would live it up like they were born there.
She quickly became the highest paid Nigerian actress and an idol for several young girls. Even in her ban, Genevieve has continued to cultivate her image and today she looks and feels completely Hollywood. Great diction, great acting and great looks, Genevieve was born to do this.
She was once a beauty queen so now, as a mother and in her early thirties, Kate Henshaw still has what it takes to captivate. She was the only prominent Nollywood star picked to star in the MNET Doctors' Quarters. She is also one of the few Nollywood stars that does not churn out countless films in months.
Desmond is definitely good looking, one quality alot of Hollywood leads possess. But besides his great looks, Desmond Elliot is a convincing actor. Probably loved more by women than men, he feels alot like Nigeria's version of Morris Chestnut or maybe Sharma Moore.
A teacher of the arts, Sam Dede is probably one of the most convincing acts Nollywood has ever seen. A brilliant actor, Dede feels alot like Nollywood's Deniro.
Femi Brainard has the looks and the diction. He is also a wonderful actor. He has featured in various Yoruba flicks, but his most prominent English roles include in Dangerous Twins, The Two Brothers and B4 The Vows.
Not only is Olu Jacobs Hollywood Standard, he has also featured in several Hollywood productions which include the classic Dogs Of War and Ashanti among several other flicks.
Dakore has lived in London and hosted on TV. Her charm and charisma go far beyond the silver screen. Well spoken and able to translate various roles, Dakore's charm is alluring, something Hollywood stars should possess.
Segun Arinze has been around for a while and hopefully would be around for another while. Even though Mr. Arinze does not define beauty he has still been able to capture the hearts of his female audience. He has played some of Nollywood's best baddies, and has also done a wonderful job as a good guy several times.
In Hollywood, Wesley Snipes proved it took more than great looks to be a lead man and besides his various action roles featured in several romantic leads including Jungle Fever. Yemi Blaq is not drop dead gorgeous but has the intensity and the diction that definitely capture and captivate the audience.
It is very hard to believe Liz Benson is a mother and in her 40's. She has lived a glamorous life like most Hollywood stars, she has also charmed millions of film watchers. Age has not slowed her down. She sounds Hollywood, she looks Hollywood and she acts Hollywood.
She's definitely Hollywood material if they ever needed a middle aged but very sexy lead female.
RICHARD MOFE DAMIJO
RMD as he is popularly called has featured in an international film, 'Michael Powers', that is as close to Hollywood as many would get. RMD has been in the industry from the beginning. First he captured our hearts on T.V, then in Home Videos. With boyish good looks, RMD is a convincing actor and knows his English.
Even with a slightly bulky frame, Bimbo is a screen goddess. And since size has never been an issue (Queen Latifah), Bimbo could fit into any Hollywood production without problems.
Wife of Screen idol Olu Jacobs, Joke is a screen idol herself. When most young actresses are asked who inspires them, they quickly mention Joke. In at her age, Joke is graceful and very captivating. She is an asset Hollywood definitely missed out on.
RAMSEY NOUAH JR.
[b]Ramsey Nouah grew in this industry. When he first started, many said he wasn't very convincing as an actor even though he was very good looking, but with time, Ramsey has taken roles and given deliveries that have impressed many. Great diction, great looks and a great actor, what else does Hollywood ask for?B]

They made no mistakes when picking these people. The picker did not lie. I dont know that dakore girl, but i'll give her space to omotola jolade.
I like the people they picked.. although we all know there r some people that should be on the list.
|Re: Nollywood Stars Who Can Make It In Hollywood by pepsy: 11:59am On Jan 30, 2006|
I would like to give props to every single actors/actresses that made this list, more grease to your elbow. That Yemi Blaq boy is good and I think he's gorgeous and I also think his acting is absolutely flawless.
Where is Omotola on this list?
|Re: Nollywood Stars Who Can Make It In Hollywood by Eastcoast(f): 11:28pm On Jan 30, 2006|
These actors and actresses are good. but i really don't know how good they are when it comes to hollywood standard. maybe with a lil training they are qualified but presently i think they still have alot of work to do. esp when it comes to talking and squeezing their faces all in the name of having convincing facial expressions. have y'all noticed how hollywood actors and actresses make facial expressions without disfiguring by squeezing their pretty faces? i think that is one big thing for niaja actors and actresses.
|Re: Nollywood Stars Who Can Make It In Hollywood by auwal(m): 12:52am On Apr 21, 2006|
what of omotola jalade, ?
|Re: Nollywood Stars Who Can Make It In Hollywood by Priscila(f): 1:22pm On Apr 22, 2006|
Include INI EDO in that list!
Not forgetting Omo.Men add this man called Bob Manuel Udokwu!
Thats the confidence of a scwarzenegger he has there!
They can try Hollywood standard!
|Re: Nollywood Stars Who Can Make It In Hollywood by timbachick(f): 6:09pm On Apr 22, 2006|
keep up the good work Queen2, u did a great job no doubt, what about the following talented artists&actresses:
OMOTOLA JALADE EKEINDE
BOB MANUEL UDOKWU
u didnt include them, come on now, they're great, but the question is HOW PREPARED ARE THEY FOR HOLLYWOOD? remember Hollywood is not Nollywood, peace to y'all,
|Re: Nollywood Stars Who Can Make It In Hollywood by Orikinla(m): 11:53am On May 08, 2006|
Top Nollywood Actor Emeka Enyiocha has been nominated for the Best Actor Award in the forthcoming Nigerian Entertainment Awards (NEA) on June 17 in Maryland, USA.

|Re: Nollywood Stars Who Can Make It In Hollywood by kellorah(f): 6:38pm On Jul 18, 2006|
i believe they can but, their accent, they'll have to phonerise or else, people wouldn't understand what they are saying resulting in movie flop!
|Re: Nollywood Stars Who Can Make It In Hollywood by snazzydawn(f): 11:28pm On Aug 01, 2006|
For your information,Liz Benson is now Evangelist Liz Benson,she was in Uyo some weeks back for a meeting which she preached in.Was really inspiring.
|Re: Nollywood Stars Who Can Make It In Hollywood by snazzydawn(f): 5:33pm On Sep 04, 2006|
I trust Orikinla to always stand up for Emeka Enyicha.I am beginning to like him somehow,not too much o!
|Re: Nollywood Stars Who Can Make It In Hollywood by Raymand(m): 10:22pm On Sep 04, 2006|
These clowns would have to make it first in the South African movie scene (which lets their action speak for them, unlike our pompous NOLLYWOOD ) before thinkin' of Hollywood. . . do yall know how complex Hollywood is?

|Re: Nollywood Stars Who Can Make It In Hollywood by ladyamazin(f): 12:08pm On Oct 24, 2006|

however i think gene,stella and omotolla are more than ready to join hollywood
they realy r amazing just like ladyamazin herself, lol,
|Re: Nollywood Stars Who Can Make It In Hollywood by rudeboy(m): 9:10pm On Oct 24, 2006|

|Re: Nollywood Stars Who Can Make It In Hollywood by candylips(m): 9:20pm On Oct 24, 2006|
|Re: Nollywood Stars Who Can Make It In Hollywood by bumbaby(f): 3:25am On Oct 25, 2006|
ah where is Omotola i think she should have been picked.
|Re: Nollywood Stars Who Can Make It In Hollywood by K2DaC(f): 4:03am On Oct 25, 2006|
None of them except Ramey Nouah, RMD, and Liz Benson and Maybe Omotola
everyone else NO ---------------->
|Re: Nollywood Stars Who Can Make It In Hollywood by harpo(m): 9:22am On Oct 25, 2006|
These choices are definately on target one can only add or subtract one or two, for me i will add omotola i want to believe she was totally not remembered and we all know she is dam good, since liz Benson has decided to stop acting and wanting to be an evangelist i think she should be left out of this list, off cause she is one of the best actresses Nigeria has produced. I am also glad that Jim Ike was not mentioned, definately not hollywood standard
