Gone are the days when good movies were written. I didn't watch some of them but their stories were well told.
Re: Some Funny, And Really Nice Nigerian 80's Shows by nanidee(f): 1:18am On Jul 11, 2012
^^ Exactly! When you watch some of them, you see how talented those people were.

I was much too young to understand a lot of the shows back then, but watching them now, I see why my parents could never miss a single episode. cheesy

Saw a few back then too.

The New Masqurade and Cheeckmate were my faves I think.

Was watching Phone Swap with a friend. Chief Zebrudaya was in the movie. And my friend said watching these legnds act, it's easy to see why they have been great actors for decades.

Yaay. . . I remember check mate cheesy

I think that was where RMD became recognized, as well as Bob Manuel, then Ego Boyo (whoever knows what's up with her these days undecided

And there was also 'Behind the Clouds'.

Wow. . . The good old days. cry
Re: Some Funny, And Really Nice Nigerian 80's Shows by Jayboy124: 12:12am On Jul 12, 2012
Think Francis Duru played Akpan too. Bob Manuel, yea. Think he was siblings to Ego or so.

I remember two scenes very well. One was in Chief's house when a maid or so who came from the village said "if you go this side FRY-OVER, you go this Bar Beach, you go this side FRY-OVER... In fact everywhere is full of FRY-OVER". The laugh wey we laugh then eh.

Then there was this scene where RMD kissed Ego and says something like "I hope the kiss was good enough".

Good oldies of the good old days.

Behind the Clouds (Had no clue what was going on. . .just enjoyed looking at Nosa grin)

Checkmat[/b]e (The show that kicked off my love affair with RMD. In hindsight, I realize now I was in Love with Segun Kadiri not RMD cheesy. Apart from that period when they had some paki looking woman playing Anne Haathrop. . .the show was on point from start to finish)

[b]Village Headmaster
(Classic!! )

Tales by Moonlight. . .No sunday was complete without it! The days they don't show an episode for whatever reason felt like the world just tilted off its axis.

Sigh! Gone are 'em days.

If I am not mistaken....two actresses played that part. So there is a possibility you are both right.

Pot of Life - Omila! Come to me! The thought of that movie still gives me the creeps.

Then Jimi Odumosu's Evil Encounter. I can never forget a scene where someone runs out of a house to a woman frying akara on the road and a guy appears and disappears repeatedly on the roof of the the house that person ran out from. There was also a scene where someones face was burnt on the cooker

And there was Lynx on Saturdays..... Hauwa!! Ooooo, scary!

Then a last one which I think was called The Dream. I remember a family driving @ night and then had a flat tyre. The dad starts walking and suddenly a vulcanizer appears out of nowhere @ like midnight. The stupid man then requests the services of the vulcanizer (which vulcanizer sits by the roadside @ midnight looking for customers?) Then I remember a group of people eating the intestines of the family in the car.
