These Nigerian actresses were in your favorite music videos. Did you notice them?
Have you ever started watching a movie or TV show and immediately thought to yourself, “I know this actress from somewhere? I have, and all bulimia Young, Famous and African, I couldn’t help but think back to where I first saw Annie Idibia. It finally forced me down a rabbit hole to find out where we first saw some of our Nollywood favorites. Here is what I discovered.
Beverly Osu has had one of the best video vixen to popular actress transitions in Nollywood, hands down. While a lot of people assume she put her leg through big brother africaOGs like us know that before getting roles on chief dad and Olotura, our daughter was busy turning up the heat on Ice Prince’s Oleku Musical clip. An iconic girl on an iconic song.
Annie Idinia may be young, famous and African now, but before she became a Netflix reality TV star and the drama surrounding her man, 2face (known on the streets as Guilty Idibia), Annie had already caused a stir in her iconic clip for african queen. Who can forget that smile?
Tonto Dikeh is an abeg vibe. When this girl isn’t fighting and trolling her exes (lovers and BFFs), she’s going live on Instagram and giving us premium comedy. But before she rose to fame for Nollywood bad girl roles and that music career we’d all love to forget, Tonto was busy knocking her down as a backup dancer for the one and only Mama G. We guess Nollywood has always been in the picture for Roi Tonto.

We might act like we don’t like it, but deep down, Deputy Ladies has become a very entertaining guilty pleasure. As Osas Ighodaro and his crew continue to stress us out, one actress who might seem very familiar to audiences is Sophie Alakija who plays Tamara. Wonder where you saw it? Go back and watch Wizkid’s Holla at your boy. You might notice a young Sophie grilled by Starboy and his crew of carrot jeans.
Remember when Djinee gave us one of the best heartbreaking songs of all time with Ego? Watch the music video for the song carefully and let us know if you spot a familiar face. Yes, it’s Mrs. Yvonne Jegede showing our guy some pepper. But even before this video, Yvonne also made an appearance as one of 2face Idibia’s African queens in the african queen video that year. Guess she’s been in the game for a hot minute.
Before entering the Big Brother house and becoming one of the show’s most accomplished alumni, Venita was already kicking ass on the TV show, Flatmates alongside Basketmouth. But even long before that, Venita also cut her teeth as a dancer and video vixen, stealing the stage in music videos with Skale in Mukuli and Timaya in Shake your butt
