Nigeria is a country that is blessed with numerous talented people, especially in the field of film acting. Before the Nigerian film industry became what it is today, there were so many artists whose gestures and exceptional talent appeared to be a source of inspiration to the present artists.
No actor can brag that his or her style is so unique that he can say he or she has never looked up to another actor or had a role model. Many of them are either mimicking or walking in the downline of the fore artists. It is on this basis that I have resolved to showcase some primitive Nigerian artists who have set the pace before the present artists.
In this article, you will see many artists who have died and the living who are the real artists who interpreted many roles before the present artists.
Thus, I will only showcase the artists who only act as Rogues in movies, i.e artists whose characters always revolve around crimes, whores, playboys, and traditional warriors.
When we talk about artists who have set the pace for crime roles in Nigerian movies, the list will be incomplete without mentioning these artists: Charles Olumo a.k.a, Mufutau Sanni a.k.a Ajigijaga and Spark the killer.
Charles Olumo has been acting and performing on the stage since as far as the early 60s. He is known as one of the pioneers of crime roles and he is known for his skinned hairstyles which symbolizes his choice of role in the movie. Up to date, Charles Olumo can not do without his choice of hairstyle as it has become part of him.
Some modern actors whose roles replicate that of his are Don Richard, Ibrahim Yekini (Itele), Hanks Anuku, Chidi Mokeme, and others.
Many Nigerian actresses were known for this role in the past. Many of them are dead while some are still alive, but aging.
This role is created in most movies to manifest a wicked person or mostly a villain to achieve atmosphere.
Those who are used to the indigenous movies in the early 90s would consider people like Modupe Johnson a.k.a Fali Werepe, Patience Ozonkwo, Toyin Afolayan a.k.a Idije, and
This role is very complicated and it is mainly created in films to interpret the activities of wayward girls. Several old actresses are known for being professional actresses that could interpret the role in movies during the early 90s, and they are Racheal Oniga, Yetunde Wunmi, Fausat Balogun a.k.a Madam Saje, and Toyin Afolayan.
Today, many young actresses are active in the roles of people like Jumoke Odetola, Destiny Etiko, Ini Edo, Tayo Sobola, e.t.c.
Playboy Or Loverman Role
This role is mostly interpreted by old artists because most of the actors who are perfect in this role make use of songs and one would see a true picture of love expressions in their actions. Some are even good dancers. An example of such an artist is Adeyemi Afolayan, and Yemi Ayebo my lover. However, there are current actors whose actions replicate those of the aforementioned artists. They are Yomi Fash Lansho, Damola Olatunji, Ramsey Noah, Van Vicker e.t.c.
There are still many actors who are exceptional in their choice of roles. I shall talk about them in my future post.
