Nollywood Is Now On Netflix, And I Still Don’t Care


Did you know that Nollywood movies are now on Netflix? I don't know how many of them are there exactly, but I have been turned off from Nollywood for a long time. Anyway, because we have a smart TV, Igwe will not let me breathe. Every single day, Igwe will torment me with one Nollywood movie or another. For the first time in my life, I even watched a Yoruba movie from beginning to end, and honestly, it wasn't the worst Nigerian movie I've ever seen. The only problem is that whoever is in charge Continue Reading

WATCH: Kate Henshaw Dancing To Davido’s Skelewu

I've always liked Kate Henshaw for a very long time, so when I saw this video of her dancing to Davido's Skelewu, I liked her even more. Yes, I know it's trivial, but I absolutely enjoyed seeing this video, especially because it's Kate Henshaw. You just don't really imagine this dancing side of her. Well, Kate Henshaw, I totally enjoyed your dance. More please! Continue Reading

Who Started The Trend Of Nigerian Celebrities Releasing ‘Hot New Photos?’

Who are you, and what have you done with Halima's body?

I notice that recently, there has been a lot of hot new photos from our Nigerian celebrities. I make it a point to say 'Nigerian' because I know that not all my readers are Nigerian, so they may not recognize some of the names in this post. These hot new photos are usually of them in different clothes and poses, for no apparent reason. Well, they are called 'promo' photos, but I and the rest of the word just don't know what they're supposed to be promoting. I am  not a(n) pop Continue Reading

What Do AfroCandy And Porn Have In Common?

AfroCandy in one of her scenes

Nothing. And that's why this porn movie is all kinds of confusing. We first met AfroCandy in 2010 when she released her song, Ikebe Na Money. Back then, we thought it was the most ridiculous thing ever. If only we knew what was coming next. Now in hindsight, I guess it shouldn't be too surprising because she was almost naked in the music video anyway. AfroCandy's new movie is called Destructive Instinct 3 & 4. I'm assuming that Destructive Instinct 1 & 2 is floating around Continue Reading

But Why Is Oge Okoye Wearing A Blanket?

Oge Okoye in a blanket.

I generally like Oge Okoye. I can't say she's the best or worst of anything, but she's okay to look at. I like her more when she does  a realistic role - whatever that may be - than when she does the runs girl/bad girl type of roles. I find those more annoying than entertaining. Here she is on a magazine cover in a blanket. I loathe these blankets. We never had one of these blankets in Nigeria because my parents came back with blankets from Russia that were three inches thick and weighed Continue Reading

Reason Number 75291783 Why I Don’t Take Nollywood Seriously

Kiss On A Royal Balcony

I wish I was here to talk about the awesomeness that is Nollywood, but not today. It may not seem like it, but once upon a time, I used to actually be an avid Nollywood movie fan. I watched almost every single movie I came across. And at one point, I actually considered doing reviews of Nigerian movies on my blog. When I first started The Verastic Show on Blog Talk Radio, I did a Nigerian movie review at least once. I don't remember what episode exactly that was. But somewhere along the line, I Continue Reading

Hol’ Up! Ice Prince Dumped Yvonne For Yvonne?

Ice Prince & Yvonne Nelson

                Well, that ain't right! News filtering through the world wide web is that Ice Prince used to date Yvonne [Nelson] until she left him to date Iyanya ... until Iyanya left her to date Tonto Dike ... until Iyanya said he's actually not dating Tonto Dike ... and then Ice Prince went to Yvonne [Nwosu] ... until Yvonne [Nelson] became single again and wanted back what she did not want before ... and errr, so now, Ice Continue Reading
