2018 is fast coming to an end and that means we’ll get to see some of these upcoming Nollywood movies soon enough.
This year hasn’t been so great considering the quality of Nollywood movies we’ve seen so far. It also doesn’t help that the AMVCA nominations list featured average movies at best. Well, considering the hype, we hope these upcoming Nollywood movies swoop in to save the day.
Without further ado, here are some of the most hyped movies set to hit the cinemas later this year:
1. Kemi Adetiba’s “King of Boys”
The movie features heavy weights including Adesua Etomi, Sola Sobowale, Omoni Oboli and Jide Kosoko.
2. “Foreigner’s Gods”
While we don’t have details of this movie’s premise, it is however, one of the most anticipated movie of the year. Additionally, the film will feature BBNaija’s BamTeddy, Toke Makinwa, Onyeka Onwenu and others.
If you’re like us who have had enough of Adesua Etomi being type casted as the ‘good girl’, you’ll be excited for this one. In the posters, Adesua is seen posing with a gun and a Katana sword in another. Also, Banky W posted this video of a fight training sequence from the movie on his Instagram page. We can’t wait to see her kick some butt in this movie.
4. “Up North”
We have high hope for this movie not only because it features Banky W. One of the brains behind the movie Editi Effiong revealed that the current Bauchi State governor made a cameo in the film. Considering the stereotypes surrounding northern Nigeria, this movie sets to showcase the region in a positive light and we can’t wait to see the plot.
5. Izu Ojukwu’s “Amina”
We need more period dramas in Nigeria and Izu Ojukwu’s movies are testament to the fact. This movie features the historic Queen Amina of Zazzau and her epic battle against subjugation, oppression and ultimately for the throne.
Which of these movies are you looking forward to? Share your thoughts in the comments section.
