Below is a list of the Richest Nollywood actresses, this involves earnings from endorsements, and other businesses they have been involved in during the past years:

10) Chioma Chukwuka – 46 Million Naira
The absolutely scandal-free actress in Nollywood has featured in about 70 movies and has raked in millions for herself and family. She earned N8 million from movies in 2007.

In 2008, she also earned a whopping N9 million. She owns two houses and various properties in Lagos and her home state.

9) Monalisa Chinda – 50 Million Naira

The actress and producer is about to release her movie which is already in its final stages. She also owns landed properties in choice locations in both Rivers State and Lagos.

8) Uche Jombo – 49.5 Million Naira
In 2008, she pocketed N10 million for her slick performances in several movies.

The Glo ambassador and model, who earned more than N11 million in 2009, seems unstoppable at the moment. The year 2011/2012 could see her top this list, since some of her movies are not yet released and the ones being shown in cinemas are still enjoying sold-out status across the continent.

7) Patience Ozokwor – 51 Million Naira
The Enugu star is nicknamed ‘Mama G’ in Nollywood. She is the oldest on the list and is notable for her tough roles in movies. ‘Mama G’, who is also a musician, has been consistent in the industry and her roles have been raw energy. She is very diverse in her investments but also has several landed properties. She also started business very early.

6) Omotola Jalade Ekeinde – 53 Million Naira
In 2007, she grossed N9 million. Omotola takes it easy with her life and also has great passion for cars.

She drives more expensive cars than any actress in Nollywood and her garage is estimated to be worth N20 million. The mother, model and musician has recently stepped up her game in the music industry.

Her first album ‘Gba’ was her first introduction to the music industry but her sophomore album ‘Me, Myself & Eyes’ has defined her as truly talented. The production and promotion of her album cost her a whopping N13 million.

5) Mercy Johnson – 55 Million Naira
By 2008, Mercy Johnson had appeared in fifteen movies and earned N11.4 million from movies alone. The following year, she earned N13 million and she featured in the Emen Isong hit movie ‘Guilty Pleasures’. She is also an investor in properties and she is about to complete two houses at the moment. She also owns about six landed properties in Lagos.

4) Rita Dominic – 58 Million Naira
In 2004, she won the City Peoples Award as the Most Outstanding Actress. The face of Nokia and the Glo ambassador is also a business woman.

Rita has done well both as an actress and a model. Her assets include landed properties and two homes estimated to be worth over N40 million.

Between 2008 and 2009, she earned N16million (most of it part of the money coming from Nokia and Glo.) She is about to launch a book and produce her own films.

3) Ini Edo – 60 Million Naira
She has five buildings to her credit and another one to be completed by the end of the year. Most of the buildings are being rented to tenants. By 2007, she had earned N15.7 million from movies and her businesses.

She has just produced her latest flick ‘Memories Of The Heart’ which will be premiered in the United States. She is a Glo ambassador and is also part of the project to move Nollywood to another level. She is fully involved with Nollywood USA.

2) Genevieve Nnaji – 64 Million Naira
By 2009, she raised the bar and she was paid $25,000 in the blockbuster international hit movie ‘IJE’ produced by Chineze Anyaene. A model and also a singer, she became the Face of Lux in 2004 and was subsequently involved with Pronto beverage and Omo detergent. Between 2004 and 2006, she earned a whopping N31.3 million.

N14.7 million came from her two-year deal with Lux ($100,000). With no great interest in real estate, she decided to dive into the fashion industry. She launched her clothing line St. Genevieve in 2008 which is presently being managed by fashion icon Zizi Cardow and is reportedly worth N20 million.

There is no doubt that she would have been topping this list with a great margin if she eventually got the Glo deal. She became the first to be contacted by Globacom, but she demanded N50 million while globacom wanted to sign her on for N30 million. She’s reported to have tried later to salvage the deal, but she had already lost it. She is also the brand ambassador of Range Rover’s Evogue new brand of cars.

1) Kate Henshaw-Nuttall – 67 Million Naira
By 2006, she had earned N10 million and the following year, she reached N12 million. The warm and beautiful star is also a model, a former Glo Ambassador, and face of Onga (brand from Promasidor) and has since earned a whopping N20 million between 2008 and 2010.

I would have loved to represent my country, but the team we built in South Africa is one of the best team in the country.

Woman stripped naked for robbing a female passenger in Abuja

A Young lady was yesterday stripped naked at the Area 11 Junction in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja after carrying out a robbery operation on a woman and being pursued by some group of young men who volunteered to help the victim track down the perpetrators.
It was reported that the lady and five others had carried out an operation at Area 11, robbing an unlucky female passenger who fell into their hands.  The victim was identified as Obiageli.
Luck however ran out of them when a group of young men who watched the robbery scene from a distance quickly rushed to the scene to rescue the helpless woman, and to get hold of the robbers. The men who were smarter escaped from the scene of the incident, leaving the lady, who struggled to rescue herself from the hands of the angry mob.  She however put up a defense mechanism through her refined grammar, claiming she was not part of the operation.
The mob who already knew the truth hastily got hold of her hand bag, and checked thoroughly the Ash colored Nissan she was inside.  Recovered from the car and her hand bag were ATM cards belonging to different people, passports of different people and over 20 mobile phones.
It became too late for her to beg the mob as their number had already increased. It was then that they quickly stripped her naked and descended on her.
As at the time of this report, the police were yet to arrive at the scene of the incident, however, it was learnt that someone had already gone to report the case to the police.

Dead man appears 37 years after in Abeokuta

Barely a week after a child was reportedly born with Islamic rosary, (Tesbaha) in Sagamu, Ogun State, another amazing event was recorded in the ancient town of Abeokuta, as a man that was believed to have died about four decades ago was sighted at Mawuko area of Odeda local government, Ogun State.
The appearance of late Sheikh Ibraheem Nyaas at a newly constructed building in the area has continued to attract visitors both within and outside the State since the unusual event occurred few days ago.
Investigation by Leadership Sunday confirmed that last week Friday, the ghost of sheikh Ibraheem who had died for almost 37 years ago started appearing on the walls of a building belonging to one Saubana Fadeyi.
Expectedly, the strange happening has turned the sleepy Mawuko village into a Mecca of sorts as people thronged the area to see another oddity and seek the face of Allah.
The owner of the building who moved into the yet to be completed two bedroom flat a day to the eid el fitri celebration while speaking with LEADERSHIP SUNDAY confirmed that he started noticing a very faint brightness on the wall of his sitting room and the figure that showed on that wall was a replica of the portrait of Sheikh Nyass that he engraved at the entrance of the building.
His words: “My wife first noticed it and she rushed out to inform me, when I also saw it, I was greatly terified, wondering how such thing could have happened”.
“My thought was that the ghost would eventually disappeaed but on the second day, it brightenes more and started showing on all sides of the building which made me ran to a pastor of a church near my house for assistance”.
Collaborating the husband, Mrs Maryam Fadeyi said that when she saw that the happening was a strange thing, I told my husband to inform those that knows better than us, it was then we called on an Imam at a nearby mosque after the Pastor that we invited had adviced that we seek for help from muslim clerics to solve the misery”.
Fadeyi said that he immediately invited some Muslim clerics in the area to come and behold the strange happenings in his house”
Fadeyi said, “the shout of “Allahu Akbar” (God is Great) rented the air as hundreds of people trooped in to behold what happened”.
