We all have questions about the Nollywood industry that pop into our heads regularly, such as, do actors study? Is education required to become an actor? Or Which actor is the most/least educated? We all know that education is very important since it allows us to improve in life.
Nigerians generally believe that Nollywood stars are uneducated. In this article, I will present you with some Nollywood stars who graduated with a first-class degree to clear up this misconception.

2. Tosin Abiola

4. Joseph Fiifi Van Vicker
Joseph Fiifi Van Vicker is the latest Nollywood star with a first-class degree. The actor graduated with a first-class degree in Strategic communication in July 2021, 21 years after finishing secondary school.
I'm sure you're wondering why Van Vicker took so long to get into university.
