    Na hia you Igbo people come dey relax after you don cause katakata for the other thread abi? Lol...

    Anyway, just thought i'd give Takestyle a dose of his own medicine on that thread and it was interesting to see how many ibo folks sprang up to defend theirs but when he made the ludicrous statement about Yorubas, we played it cool (must be the intelligence in our genes, eh?).

    And for you Honourable, you were indeed overestimated by me if you could have thought I am Abundantgrace.

    Sola as usual is biased towards his Ibo members are they are the jesters and clown of this site so that is understandable. It's sad to see that he decided to put a cap on that thread just after my comment. Somehow sha, I understand his bias.

    And to you Takestyle: I never really concealed my identity. I am bold enough to put my point accross without fear of no one! You - I thought should know. I was Peaches and still is and my views of you haven't changed.

    What ludicrous statement about Yoruba people did I make, pray tell?

    What did I say that provoked you to spit out a laughable distortion of reality like you did?

    Look, Peaches... I don't know if you said that stuff to get vengeance on me, but if so, it was a waste of time an energy. I've already told you: I AM AN INDIVIDUAL. If you want to hurt me, attack me personally... Don't talk mess about all Igbos, because I am not responsible for all Igbos.

    That much being said, your point was laughable to anybody who knows their history.

    You say that Igbos never felt like they were a part of Nigeria and were afraid of the Yorubas?

    Rubbish. Who was it who introduced tribalism into Nigerian politics out of fear that an Igbo man might become Premier of the Western Region? Was it not Obafemi Awolowo and his Egbe Omo Oduduwa?

    Was that not the beginning of institutionalized tribalism and the mess Nigeria is in now?

    (Mind you, I don't blame Yoruba people for this... I blame Awo as an individual, because he appealed to his people's fear of Igbo domination.)

    And yes... You DID conceal your identity.

    I don't know about the rest of you but I for one, am tired of this shit.
    what is it lately with the i'm igbo i'm yoruba you're a tribalist crap?
    it's enough.
    WTF? i can't even enjoy a thread these days.
    this is enough to turn somebody away from here.

    All of you need to cut this shit out.

    Sola can open a forum for you guys to go and fight to death, but get out of these threads with that mess.
    this is the last i'm going to talk on this.

    enough of this.
    ENOUGH.

    Over ten pages and you haven't provided any evidence to back up your claim. To know the best you compare the best. Why do not you bring your best of the recent times and I bring my best of old times? Fair??

    And your empirical facts mean that they are fact and others' are non facts? I mean have you actually provided the facts you claiming after ten pages??

    Again provide fact from the present to prove the past was garbage.

    Takestyle, it is better to be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

    Takestyle, let's just say that you leave me in no doubt whatsoever about the manner of person you are.

    I am not having any more arguements with you. I'm done with these kind of fights.

    TM,that is more than a few.See if you can lay your hands on atleast some of them.
    Most of them are already productions of the new millenium.Only a few in the list are 90s production.The most current of the movies has 2003 as procuction year.I think that is old enough to qualify as nollywood classic.

    Thank you vince, but now i'm horribly horribly confused.
    what time period are we talking about?
    i understood TS to mean early early, like glamour girls early, (where eucharia could still act as a young school girl)
    most of the movies listed here are later movies.
    i've seen the highlighted ones.
    i'm going to my aunt's in two weeks, hopefully she's got some of these.

    For my own clarification, can we put some dates on this discussion?
    which years do you consider early/classic years for the nigerian movie industry? i'll go as far back as when ngozi ezeonu and eucharia were still acting as young sisi eko's and "runs" girls. (now they act only as mama and wife)

    dates would be very helpful.

    TM,there are movies that are of the 90s in the list,but a lot more are in the new millenium.Like i already said,2003 is old classic nollywood for most.Besides,these are the ones i can remember.My memory cannot go far back into the 90s.So manage those.You are not going to be able to get most of them,anyway.
    Here is another of early 2000s,THE KINGMAKER,produced by Olu Jacobs.

    They are all "early" flicks in nollywood speak.Early 2000s are early enough.
