In my opinion for women they are:
Patience, Joke Silva, Omotola, Ego Boyo, Regina Askia, Genevieve, Stella, Shola Shobowale, Uche Osotule and Clarion
For the men:
RMD, Olu Jacobs, Ramsey Noah, Segun Arinze, Desmond Elliot, Zack Orji, Sola Fosudo and Jim Iyke.
I just came into town and heard what happened to you
i just want you to know that God gives and hi taketh i know
it's hard to leave without somebody that has been part of you
but just try.Plz do accept my sincere condolence.
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.

I've had two failed romances,but I stillbelievein love–Nollywood star,Georgina Onuoha
Pretty actress, Georgina Onuoha has got it all. She is immensely talented, well-to-do with a thriving career that is the envy of many in Nollywood.
At just 24, this fifth child in a family of six, has brought joy and smiles to many homes within and outside Nigeria with her scintillating roles in home videos. "I want to change the world for the better through acting. My dream is to heal the sufferings and pains of the masses through my roles in movies", divulged the International Relations and History undergraduate of Lagos State University (LASU).
Very busy Georgina, who rose from obscurity to popularity in Nollywood, has not looked back since her arrival on the set of Cursed From Beyond, in ’97.
The star of numerous hit and acclaimed movies like Egg of Life, Runs, Valentino and Misplaced, is also a top model.
"My early days in the industry were very rough and tough. I went through many trials and tribulations. Even my dad who wanted me to be a police officer then felt disappointed when I turned down his request for Nollywood, "she told Daily Sun.
There are just too many: Order does not mean anything:
