Person of the Year:
**** Nollywood Rave's Person of the year would have to be Desmond Elliot! He has great skill, tremedous talent, and an amazing personality to seal the package. We thank him very much for all his many years of acting and his now new found skill, directing. i hope to see him more because he directed most of the "Must Watch" movies this year in Nollywood. I wish him luck and Ultimate success with everything he does.

.....And Finally, NR ROAST comes to an end. I had an amazing year getting all the gist in Nollywood and getting to know some of the stars. It was a woderful Journey and i would not change how it happened. Again i thank everyone that helped me and i hope more people will join me as Nollywood Rave takes another stride into the New Year.

So what did you think of the winners? Agree or disagree? Leave a comment below...let's chat!

  1. I am so Proud of Uche Jombo cos the babe has set a big time train in this Nollywood industry that will live on even after she is gone. IM SO SO PROUD OF YOU and GOD BLESS YOU

  2. Well i totally agree with this except for the best Poster. I kinda don't think that poster is the best but that's my own opinion though

  3. I agree with Omawumi being the Best Female Artite. Great choice!!!

  4. I agree with you on this list, particularly with Frank Artus (I refuse to watch any movie where he plays the lead) and my favorite of them all: Frank Arase ... That one had me laughing so hard because you're not the only one I have heard complain of this particular "offense" from him. I also loved "Heart of a Fighter" and wasn't surprised to see it here. Both Ramsey and Mercy were properly cast for their roles there.

    Happy New Year again!

  5. For Person of the Year, second line "we thanks him." Grammatical error there, please fix it.

    I agree with everything except for the part about Desmond Elliot and his great skill. His acting is subpar and his directing is nothing to write home about. I like the guy and I would hope he, and Tonto Dike and Uche Jombo, would go and get some more acting lessons. He can couple it with some directing lessons because he gets good scripts and he has good plans but it just does not get through.

    Uche Jombo is a fabulous actress and she is good, and as a director, I love her. I simply want her to keep improving herself so that she remains a cutting edge in the industry.

    Tonto Dike is one of my favorite actresses, not necessarily one of the best. I love her personality, her fire and that she has versatility. The lady has range and I love watching her. But, her acting could use some acting and speech lessons because the girl is going to be big, bigger than she already is.

    I am in love with Ruth Kadiri and she is also a screenwriter, the lady is really good and I hope to see more from her.

    Kalu Ikeagwu is phenomenal. I love seeing him, I just do. I have nothing to say other than keep improving and learning.

    Omawumi's voice is something out of this world and I agree with you on that. But, I am surprised not to see MI on this list. But then again, you may not be a rap fan. I do not really listen to pop, so P-Square does not do it for me, their banging bodies though is another matter.

    Thanks for the post, I enjoyed it.

  6. @tunmi Thanks for letting me know.
    You said that you think Desmond and uche and tonto should go get some more acting lessons yet you talk about how great they are. im a little confused there.

    Yes, i totally agree with you on Tonto, Ruth, and Kalu.

    Desmond elliot has been in the industry for a long time now and has basically had every experience needed as an actor or director. He might not be a spectacular director, but he does a better job than most of our actual directors.

    MI is great, i actually love his music, but mainly only when he co signs. I based Male Artist on talent but mostly how much they accomplished in 2011 and how much people enjoyed the music.
