Last week, Nollywood Reel published the names of some Nollywood stars who have one way or the other been controversial in the movie industry or in their private lives. And as promised, we bring to you the concluding part of the story.
•Empress Njamah: Empress started her acting career in Nollywood with the movie, Girls' Hostel and now she is ranked among the most talented actresses in the industry.
This beautiful gal in her 20s, has obviously had her fair share of controversies in the industry. She has been romantically linked with one man or the other at different times.
•Cossy Orjiakor: Although Cossy seems to have kept a very low profile lately, she was inarguably the most controversial actress, following her seductive roles in Abass Akande Obesere's musical video, Apple Juice, among others. That was the genesis of her controversies.
Apart from being romantically linked with the likes of Ola Kukoyi and Obesere, this University of Lagos graduate was also alleged to be suffering from breast cancer. However, the naturally endowed Cossy, who recently moved to her Lekki home, has found a new love in music.
•Eucharia Anunobi: Since this talented actress featured in the flick, Glamour Girls, she has always been enmeshed in controversies. Even with the recent disappearance of her husband from home, Eucharia has gradually learnt to move on with her life.
•Hanks Anuku: This is a fantastic actor with a spectacular sense of interpreting roles, especially when it has to do with interpreting his roles in action movies. Hanks, who is being perceived as one of the most dangerous guys while acting roles in Nollywood, has been enmeshed in many controversies. Many believe he is naturally erratic. He is a man of many controversies.
•Iyabo Ojo: No doubt, Iyabo is quite talented and towers above some of her peers in the Yoruba movie industry and if she continues like that, the sky may actually be her starting point. But no soothsayer needs to tell her to avoid some unnecessary controversies that have been trailing her.
She is one of the actresses who loves night clubbing with a passion and the mother of two has also been widely reported in the media that she date Muka Ray and Kunle Afolayan.
•Ernest Asuzu: The name Ernest Asuzu surely needs no further introduction among Nigerians. Not only because he is an actor of note, but because since last year, he has constantly been in the news. And this cannot be unconnected with the fact that he was suffering from a mental disorder. The saga has actually made his name sound more familiar to people.
•Genevieve Nnaji: One of the controversies that this star actress has encountered in her career is about her alleged relationship with a former Vice President.
The former Face of Lux, who has lost count of movies she has acted in, was also rumoured to be dating actor Pat Attah.
•Yewande Akinwande: Popularly known as Yetunde Wunmi, this Yoruba actress has always been in the limelight, but her arrest at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport by officials of the National Drug and Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), for drug trafficking made her one of the most controversial movie stars in Nigeria.
