Hmmmmm, nice job @op. But am kinda confused abt genevieve, so she actually started acting at a very tender age? And she later got pregnant at 15 right? Hmmmmmm. This kinda contradicts the story I heard. I thought she started acting afta she put to birth n was rejected by her parents........ #Make I stop here abeg# shocked

Yes Genevive was Sola Fosudo's little daughter in Ripples. Sola fosudo attended my church Ss Michael, Raphael and Gabriel Catholic Church in Satellite town and was the HOD of English in LASU.


BTW; how many people knew Genevive was a video vixen back then? She was one of Kupa Victory's Dancers.

[size=14pt]Nigerian child stars and what they look like now.[/size]


These are some of the most popular Nigerian child stars from tv and music.


TV


1) Uze (Yomi Adeyemi-Wilson) in THIRD EYE.

This was one of the best detective series on the NTA. Olu Jacobs was a police detective who had a very special little helper that assisted him in unravelling the most difficult cases. His very intelligent little daughter (Yomi Adeyemi-Wilson) would always provide a different perspective that would assist him in catching criminals (she often did this unknowingly).

The only flaw in this show was that the NTA continued to portray Yomi Adeyemi-Wilson as a Home Science pupil even when she had moved on to QC (this was in the last 2 or 3 years of the show). You could tell that she was past primary school age.

Her father is Engineer Yomi Adeyemi-Wilson who was the spokesman for Mobil Nigeria, first CEO of the Federal Environmental Protection Agency and former President of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria.

Third Eye was originally aired between c1989-c1994 and this is how Yomi Awosope (nee Adeyemi-Wilson) looks like now (if I remember correctly, she attended Home Science, Queens College and Unilag [law).

Yomi and Niyi Awosope.

2) Omotara (Farida Sanusi) in THE REIGN OF ABIKU.

Everybody preferred NTA 2 Channel 5 to NTA Channel 10 in the 1980s, but Channel 10 had a knack for producing phenomenal entries for the Nigerian Festival of Television Programmes (NIFETEP). This was one of the best entries ever (it was Channel 10's entry in the 1985 or 1986 edition).

Omotara was a sweet little girl during the day, but she had some really scary friends that visited her every night. Farida Sanusi's acting was superb, especially during the deliverance session. I'm sure you can remember her growling.

I think The Reign of Abiku and The Pot Of Life (NTA Benin/1987) are the best Nifetep entries ever.

That was 30 years ago. This is what she looks like now (she is now an accountant and fitness instructor).

3) Genevieve Nnaji in RIPPLES.

Ripples (c1988-c1994) was the hottest soap on Nigerian tv in 1988, but it was soon overshadowed by Behind The Clouds (1989) and Checkmate (1991). I didn't watch many episodes of Ripples beyond 1988 (after that I only watched it when everybody else was talking about something that happened on the show), so I'm struggling to remember the storyline, but I'll give it my best shot.

The lead actor (in the beginning) was Sola Fosudo. He was a rich playboy who always had problems with his wife (I think Yetunde Idowu acted as his wife) who was a lawyer. They had a daughter and I think he also had a girlfriend. Anyway, he died in a car crash and the show then focused on the problems that his wife encountered after his death (especially from the evil Talab Abass [played by Alex Usifo Omiagbo). That little daughter was 8 year old Genevieve Nnaji and here's how she looks like now.

What about OLa in IRU ESHIN(yoruba film)) the boy is super big now.

Music.

Tosin Jegede produced a string of hits in the mid-1980s (c1984-c1987). This is what she looked like then.


http://www.vanguardngr.com/2012/09/i-left-the-country-to-escape-from-being-kidnapped/

And this is what she looks like now.






Chichi of Africa burst on the scene around 1988 to give Tosin Jegede a run for her money. She later served as personal assistant to Dele Momodu. This is what she looks like now.

Chibuzor Mercy Idowu.

Benita Okojie had a string of hits in the mid and late 1990s and this is what she looks like now.

Unfortunately I can't remember the name of the boy in Adio Family (late 1970s/early 1980s series) and the very troublesome girl in Checkmate and Fuji House Of Commotion (1990s series).
