In the earliest days of what is today known as Nollywood, their famous faces graced movie jackets, posters and TV promos as lead actors and actresses, but today they have taken the back seats.In fact, with the emergence of up and coming actors, movie-buffs are fast forgetting the exploits of these pioneering stars that once occupied the front seats in grand panache.However, Saturday Sun, after a thorough research, is bold to tell you why these super stars of yesterday are no longer making waves.

NDIDI OBI:
This beautiful actress from Enugu State hit national limelight with her bold and daring role in Nneka The Pretty Serpent, that blockbuster movie that ruled Nollywood in early and mid- 90’s.Ndidi, who read banking and Finance at the University of Lagos also did a couple of other flicks before disappearing to God knows where. Her teeming fans are still asking about her whereabouts till date.

ANN NJEMANZE:
Pretty Ann who colonized movie-buffs with her wondrous role in Zeb Ejiro’s hit movie Domitilla in the earliest days of Nollywood slipped into acting oblivion after a fatal car accident in Calabar, while on location. Her short-lived marriage to action hero star Segun Arinze, which produced a baby girl before it crashed was well, celebrated in the media. It is so unfortunate that the multi-talented actress that was once described by pundits and critics in Nollywood as one of the brightest has taken a break from the big screens without due consultations or explanation with her fans.

SANDRA ACHUMS:
This “Searching For Love” star that was once described, as the darling of movie-buffs is nowhere to be found in today’s Nollywood.
Leggy Sandra quietly relocated to Europe after the bitter collapse of her first marriage some years ago. Now re-married with two lovely kids, the sexy and stunning Imo State born actress still breezes into the country from her base once in a while - secretly.

JENNIFER OLISA:
She was among the teenage stars that dazzled and thrilled movie-buffs some years ago before going underground.Reliable sources are alleging that the star of “Twins” and other hit movies put her acting career on hold because of her new status as a married woman.

JAYKE AERNAN:
Unarguably one of the most handsome actors to have come out of Nollywood, Jayke at the peak of his career abandoned Nollywood and relocated to neighbouring Ghana, where he is now a Pastor and winning souls for God.
During his days in Nollywood, this hunk from Benue State dated some of the finest actresses the industry could boast of then. His heroic roles in “Slave” and ‘Freedom”, are still being talked about within and beyond Nollywood.
