Nollywood has been a part of our lives trapped in a box.
So we decided to imagine what real life would be like if some of our favourite Nollywood characters played a part. These scenarios are inspired by the characters the actors have portrayed, the vibes they give off, and most importantly, the love of film.
1. Pete Edochie
He is your daddy, he is your granddaddy, he is your great granddaddy, all at the same time. Much wise. Such boss.
2. Patience Ozokwor
She is the wife daddy married after mummy died. And you have been washing plate ever since.
3. Kanayo O. Kanayo
Remember when you were a kid and you mum sent you on an errand? Then one man out of nowhere offers you a sweet? That man is Kanayo O. Kanayo. Run.
4. John “Mr Ibu” Okafor
The neighbourhood drunkard/idiot. Without a doubt.
5. Chiwetalu Agu
He is the uncle that won’t stop coming to fight with your daddy over land and threatening to kill him. But you know your daddy is Pete Edochie, the oracle your uncle’s oracle is worshipping.
6. Nkem “Osuofia” Owoh
He is that other uncle that won’t stop coming to ask for money to start a business.
7. Francis Odega
He’s your daddy’s former driver that won lotto and has been priding ever since.
8. Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde
Remember your mummy’s younger sister who was so fine you had a secret crush on, and you especially liked when she hugged you?

10. Aki and Paw Paw
Neighbourhood terror. Period.
11. Hanks Anuku
He’s always at the bus stop trying to use American accent to snatch your phone.
12. Rachel Oniga
That woman who is always judging everybody’s children against her own righteous children, but we know her son O.C Ukeje is the guy all the small aunties want to off pant for.
13. Mike Ezuruonye
You’re not quite sure if he’s a cultist, especially since your mum doesn’t want you hanging with him. But you sha know he’s at home all the time.
14. Charles “Igwe Tupac” Okafor
He is the neighbourhood Yahoo boy. As he receives dollars alert, he also receives American accent.
15. Imeh “Okon” Bishop
They promised him he was going to America, but they brought him to the city to do house boy.
16. Amaechi Muonagor
He’s always playing draft with his friends, or his bottle of Schnapps, or both.
17. Richard Mofe-Damijo
When he comes back from a trip, and all the mummies are waiting outside like.
18. Rita Dominic
She’s that neighbourhood aunty everyone just likes to be around. Because such hotness.

This aunty is not harsh or something, we just prefer to greet her from a distance. Plus she dresses funny.

She is the girl everyone thought had used her womb to play basketball but she was the first to have a child.
