Ah, some of you have been watching the movies and television for a while. We have had many superb actors and actresses across the years. Of course I'm not talking here ONLY about the new faces. In fact, left to me, I wouldn't mention them at all until they have proved their mettle. Segun Arinze for instance is not new, as he has been acting for at least 17yrs. But Nnaji, Iyke, Okereke, Elliot, etc, are just babies in terms of acting. They haven't even done it for up to five years.

So list out the 10 greatest actors/actresses you think Nigeria has/had. Of course, it is your opinion, so you can list anyone you like, including Nnaji or iyke or anybody. But don't be afraid to think back to Funsho Adeolu who used to play Eleyinmi in Village Headmaster, Taiwo Ajai-Lycett, Olu Jacobs, Toun Oni, Taiwo and Yomi Obileye, Jimi Solanke, Tunji Oyelana of Sura De Tailor fame, Baba Mero, etc.

If you can list 10 women and 10 men, fine.
If not, combine both into one list.

Enjoy!
