Opinion: How Luchy Donalds Is Edging Uju Okoli As Main Rival To Destiny Etiko In The Movie industry

For many years, the Nollywood industry has been plagued by rumors of rivalry between actresses. In truth, Genevieve Nnaji and Omotola Jalade Ekeinde, two of the most prominent actresses from Nollywood's golden era, have a long history of a reported rivalry. During their prime, they reportedly never hung out with each other and only appeared in a few movies together.

Actresses rumored to be rivals is nothing new in Nollywood, as it all started with the founding actresses. As a result, it's no surprise that Mercy Johnson and Angela Okorie have been rivals for years. Despite Angela Okorie's accusation that Mercy Johnson fought her spiritually, Mercy Johnson does not appear to regard Angela as a rival. And the reason for this is that the mother of four believes she is too successful to compete with Angela Okorie for anything.

Meanwhile, after Angela Okorie and Mercy Johnson, another supposed rivalry in the Nigerian film industry was that between Destiny Etiko and Uju Okoli.

Now it's time to get to the main story. Uju Okoli has been speculated to compete with Destiny Etiko over the years. However, the scenario appears to be quickly changing, as another actress appears to be on the horizon, threatening to push Uju Okoli out of the Destiny Etiko rivalry rumors. And that is none other than Luchy Donalds. She supposedly began acting in 2006 but rose to prominence in 2019 and is quickly becoming the most sought-after actress alongside Destiny Etiko.

Luchy Donald's journey to that level has been slow and steady since she starred in her first major film, "Osinanchi Wife," in 2017, and she hasn't slowed down since then. Because of the two reasons listed below, fans appear to regard Luchy Donalds as his only competition to Destiny Etiko.


1. Instagram Followers

Any Nollywood trend observer would agree to the fact that, unlike earlier when Uju Okoli was the only actress used to compare Destiny Etiko, Luchy Donalds has been able to enter the fray for a time now thanks to her 1.2 million Instagram followers compared to Uju Okoli's little over 869,000. Also, Luchy Donalds, like Destiny Etiko, has an Instagram account that has been verified, whereas Uju Okoli's account is yet to be verified.


2. Endorsement Deals

Another reason why Nollywood fans believe Luchy Donalds is Destiny Etiko's only serious competitor is her endorsement deals. Unlike Uju Okoli, Luchy Donalds has recently secured lucrative endorsement deals with the majority of her billboards in big states such as Asaba, Lagos, and others.

Luchy Donalds has established herself as a key player in the Nigerian movie industry. Indeed, to many Nollywood fans, she has emerged as Destiny's main competitor, and because they rarely appear in the same film or are seen hanging out together, rumors of a quiet rivalry will continue to circulate.

Luchy Donalds has been projected to replace Mercy Johnson in several ways. Many Destiny Etiko fans, on the other hand, would disagree.
