13. Rattlesnake: The Ahanna Story

Looking for a mystery/thriller? “Rattlesnake: The Ahanna Story” is a top-notch Nollywood movie.

Meeting society’s needs could be problematic. What decisions does one have to make after going through the experience of a challenging and complex life? I wouldn’t blame Ahanna for what he did.

We could not expect more from Ahanna than a life filled with crimes.

Starring Omatola Jalade, Stan Eze, Ayo Maku, and Osas Ighodaro.

Chris Adeh and Charles Okpaleke produced this movie.

12. The Man of God

Isn’t it amazing that producers can make fiction out of a true story?

“The Man of God,” which Bolanle Austen-Peters directed, has crafted a true life story of an Eastern Greek Orthodox Bishop and Saints beautifully.

The center character, Samuel, seems to have forgotten the base of his faith as he tries to fit into society and be tagged cool, but does he entirely escape the world or his faith?

If you are curious, you need to try this movie.

11. Bling Lagosians

This Nollywood movie will make you love Nigerian movies more than Hollywood or K-drama.

Directed by Bolanle Austen-Peters, this movie is the One percent of the One percent, nothing less than that for Mrs. Holloway. She wants it large, massive, and big. But the Holloway’s company goes through some crises, and Mr. Holloway still tries to hide it from his family. The first daughter still has a misunderstanding in her family, and the second daughter is trying to find her place in society.

The business crashed, and the Holloways are left with nothing. How do they rise again to the one percent of the one percent?

“The Bling Lagosians” is a clear show of the who to who that matters in Lagos City.

Starring Elvina Ibru, Gbenga Titiloye, Ngozi Gomez.

This Nollywood movie is a must-watch, a faith-based movie, and an ideal one.

Sade faces an unconventional encounter with God.

This movie was written and directed by Biodurin Sasore.

After three months, these two go on a date and decide to let their parents know. Ernest (Richard Mofe Damijo), Didi’s father, is against it as he prefers his employee Somto (Ibrahim Suleiman) as a suitor.

What could be the best scenario that could come out of this?
