Most young people have no idea what it means to be entertained. They tend to assume that life without Smartphones, Ipads, and other sophisticated devices must have been incredibly boring.
I didn't have those growing up, and I wasn't bored for a second. Suwe, Ayo, Tinko, and Boju Boju were just a few of the fun games in the1990s. The finest entertainment, though, came from renting or purchasing Nollywood movies on cassette tapes to watch.
Despite the fact that these films were made on a low budget and with little technical resources, they contained intriguing stories and plot twists. Some were based on true events, and they kept us captivated to our television sets.
Today, we'll look at 40 vintage Nollywood films that helped make the good old days unforgettable.
Conspiracy depicts the story of Grace (Onyeka Owenu), a deranged lady who gives birth to twin sons named James and John, but her twins are snatched away from her to stay with a childless couple. Years down the line, they became renowned in their medical careers and attempt to figure out a solution for their mother's insanity.
This film also starred Charles Okafor, Nkem Owoh, and others. The movie is particularly known for the song "you and I will leave as one..."
In this movie, Satan sends a pretty woman named Karashika, also known as the Queen of Darkness, to entice and steal the souls of men through sex. The film was a little scary, but it was also full with moral lessons.
3. Nneka The Pretty Serpent
This terrifying film depicts the story of a diabolical woman who charms and seduces men in exchange for their money and soul. The film focuses primarily on Tony, her next victim, whom she nearly utterly destroys. This movie was recreated last year, but it wasn't as good as the original.
Ijele is a 1999 movie that narrates the tale of Obiligwe, the most powerful man in the village, who has only eyes for a young girl named Oma. When Oma became ill, Ijele journeyed into the evil forest to find a remedy for her, where he wrestled windstorm and crossed a river of fire. The goddess of rain and the entire community even tried and push him to marry another woman, but he refused.

Evil Genius was a scary movie featuring Sandra Achums, Bob Manuel Udokwu, Zack Orji, and others.
