Top 5 most anticipated Nollywood movies 2020

Here are the top Nollywood movies we should be expecting this coming months.


1. Badamasi (The Portrait of a General)

Nigerian Twitter went into a frenzy when Obi Emelonye released the trailer for Badamasi, an epic political thriller that examines the pivotal parts of General Ibrahim Babangida’s life. The biopic tells Babangida’s childhood story, his involvement in the Biafran War, and the annulment of the 1993 presidential elections.

A FLAWED ARMY GENERAL ATTEMPTS TO GUIDE AN IMPOSSIBLE AFRICAN COUNTRY THROUGH A VICIOUSLY STRAINED ERA IN THIS FIRST OF ITS KIND, AUTHORIZED BIOPIC, BASED ON REAL EVENTS.

Expectedly, there are concerns the film might be a whitewashing of the General’s actions, considering IBB authorized it.

Cast: Enyinna Nwigwe, Sani Danja, Yakubu Mohammed, Okey Bakassi, Julius Agwu, and Kalu Ikeagwu.

5. La femme Anjola

What will neo-noir look like if given some Nigerian flavor? That is a question Mildred Okwo’s star-studded La Femme Anjola is going to answer. The film, Okwo’s first since 2016’s Suru L’ere, is “a psychological-thriller film noir” that follows a young stockbroker whose life is disrupted when he falls for Anjola, the wife of a wealthy, brutal gangster.

Anjola, played by Nollywood veteran Rita Dominic, is a classic femme fatale, and you can get a glimpse of her in the short teaser below.
