A post shared by Rita Dominic Anosike (@ritadominic)

Rita Dominic is one of the oldest Nollywood actresses still going strong, and she’s also one of the most attractive. The actress, a member of the Nwaturuocha Royal Family from Aboh Mbaise, Imo State, began her acting career while still in elementary school. She got her start in the industry with a bit part in A Time to Kill (1998) and has since risen to prominence to become one of Nollywood’s most in-demand stars.

Over time, she has received numerous compliments about how much younger she appears than her true age. She said that she owed it all to pampering herself at the spa whenever she has the chance and making healthy food choices on a daily basis. It’s important to her that the clothes she wears are comfortable, regardless of whether they’re fancy or not. This is why she never appears nervous or ill-prepared.

Dominic was once accused of using bleach to make her complexion lighter. There’s no evidence to back it up, but she hasn’t refuted the claims, either. Instead, she’s focused on flaunting her beauty routine and the products she supports. She just became engaged to Fidelis Anosike, publisher of the Daily Times.

One of the newer actresses making waves in Nollywood is Chinonso Arubayi. She has appeared in a wide variety of films, including Oche’s Secret, A Lonely Star, Zizani, Beyond Pardon, and Three Brothers. Besides performing, she also has a successful career as a TV host, model, and trained makeup artist. The actress is very private, and little insights into her life have been made public.

She was married to the late Eric Arubayi, a gospel singer, for three years before his death in 2017. Together, they raised a son. Arubayi says she looks the way she does because she stays hydrated and uses cosmetics that highlight her natural features. She also claims that her inner beauty shines through at all times.

The actress created a popular makeup company so she could give her followers even more of her exclusive beauty tips. Arubayi has always been stunning, and at the age of 17 she won the Miss Teen Nigeria Pageant. She also recently starred as the bride in the music video for Timi Dakolo’s Igbo wedding song, Obim.

3. Sharon Ooja

  • Age: 32 years old
  • State of origin: Benue State
  • Relationship status: single
  • Best features: her height and eyes
  • Known for: Skinny Girl in Transit

Sharon Ooja claims it was pure chance that led her to the film industry. Her breakthrough came when she was cast as Shalewa in the popular Ndani TV online series Skinny Girl in Transit. She may not have been in the business for very long, but that one part catapulted her to fame.

The actress was born in Benue State but spent most of her childhood in neighboring Plateau State. She is a Mass Media graduate.

The young actress is giving her more established counterparts a run for their money in the beauty department. Sharon believes her naturally radiant skin requires no additional makeup, so she opts for a minimal, natural look. She begins each day with a cup of herbal tea, plenty of water, and a healthy breakfast. She also promotes natural cosmetics.

She frequently posts unfiltered photos of her perfect skin. She is an impressive 5 feet and 9 inches tall and with strikingly stunning eyes. She believes that beauty rest is essential for all women. Ooja claims to be in a relationship, but she won’t identify who her boyfriend is.

When her mother, also an actress, encouraged Regina to pursue performing at the age of seven, Regina quickly became a household name. She became an adult quickly and has stayed in the spotlight ever since.

Fair and beautiful, Daniels made headlines when she became the sixth wife of wealthy businessman Ned Nwoko at the age of 19. The young actress has continued to appear stunning and sophisticated despite widespread backlash about whether or not she made the right choice.

She was known for her unfussy style; she frequently wore jeans, T-shirts, and sunglasses. The single mother put on some weight after giving birth to her baby in 2020, but she has since found a healthy diet and exercise routine that has helped her shed the extra pounds and get back in shape. The use of Mapia Tea played a significant role in this.

A post shared by AMB. KING TONTO (@tontolet)

Tonto Dike’s meteoric rise to stardom may be traced back to the various scandals and controversies she has courted since the beginning of her acting career. Despite this, she is often considered one of the most attractive actresses of all time. The actress has consistently set a positive example when it comes to taking care of one’s physical health. It’s common knowledge that she’s had multiple operations to achieve her ideal shape. She has undergone both liposuction and a Brazilian butt lift, as she has admitted.

Tonto also says that her skin looks and feels silky, smooth, and perfect after receiving a routine beauty IV shot twice weekly. Tonto is unconcerned about the potential long-term consequences of all the surgeries and drips she is taking, and she frequently posts before-and-after images to demonstrate the improvement in her appearance.

Furthermore, it is clear that she struck the appropriate target with her beauty improvement, as seen by the growing number of endorsement deals and fashion-related events she has been at over the past year. Tonto’s son is from her marriage to Olakunle Churchhill, a successful businessman and philanthropist.

  • Age: 43 years old

Genevieve Nnaji is a top-tier performer in the Nigerian film industry. She began her acting career when she was only eight years old in 1987 and is still active now. Nnaji, who has been called “natural black beauty,” has been in a lengthy variety of films and won a slew of prizes for her work.

The native of Imo State is frequently asked how she looks so young despite her long career in the spotlight. She previously said that her sense of fashion, especially when it comes to choosing complementary colors, her foundation, and her hair are the three things that keep her looking fabulous. Additional factors include maintaining a healthy weight and getting plenty of restful sleep.

She said in an interview that she gets flustered and rushed easily, thus she is almost never in a bad mood or untidy. She avoids trash like the plague. Nnaji is well-known for not having a boyfriend.

8. Omoni Oboli

A post shared by Omoni Oboli (@omonioboli)

For many people, Omoni Oboli represents the pinnacle of beauty. The actress made her debut in Nollywood in 1996, and while she may not be front and center in many films, she is actively involved in the industry in many other professions, including that of producer, director, screenplay, and digital filmmaker.

Omoni has managed to keep her slim figure after having three children and being married to fellow producer Nnamdi Oboli since the year 2000. The food she eats is the primary reason for her healthy body and soft skin. She advised being mindful of what, when, and how much you eat. Together with the correct organic skin care products, this is how she maintains her youthful appearance indefinitely.

She also highlights the significance of maintaining an exercise regimen for reasons other than slimming down. Omoni’s incredibly long natural hair is a source of fascination for her devoted following, and she frequently gets questions about how she manages to develop and preserve it. Once every two months, she suggests applying henna.

9. Beverly Naya

  • Age: 32 years old
  • Nationality: the United Kingdom/Nigerian
  • Relationship status: Single
  • Best features: Her color and long natural hair
  • Known for: Tinsel

One of the best choices Beverly Naya ever made was moving to Nigeria to pursue an acting career, despite the fact that she was born in the United Kingdom. Since her breakthrough on Tinsel, the actress has received numerous compliments on her stunning good looks, refined demeanor, and confident stage presence.

She was granted an interview in which she shared her beauty secrets because she is constantly being asked how she manages to look so put together despite her hectic schedule. First, she cleanses her face twice a day with a gentle cleanser, applies a serum that helps her skin retain its elasticity, eats a lot of oranges, and stays hydrated.

Naya encourages people to love and embrace their natural skin color. This is because of the prejudice she encountered as a child in London as a result of the color of her skin. The actress made a documentary called Skin to raise consciousness about racism based on skin tone.

She was asked how she takes care of her signature long, lustrous hair and said that she washes it frequently, uses protein treatments, and moisturizes with coconut and argan essential oils. She also emphasises the necessity of always using a protective hairdo. Overall, Beverly Naya has a sophisticated sexiness to her look.

A post shared by Ini Edo (@iniedo)

Fans often use the adjective “curvy” to describe Ini Edo. The stunning native of Akwa Ibom first appeared on screen in 2003 and has since starred in a number of Nollywood films. Since her rise to fame, Ini’s beauty has only increased with time. Even more intriguing is the fact that she hasn’t succumbed to the current fad of skin lightening that seems to be popular among black ladies.

She made a daring move by breaking into the cosmetics sector with her own brand of cosmetics and skincare products inspired by her passion for fashion and style. She has dubbed the collection Beauty Secret of April, and it features items like lip gloss, lipstick, face cleanser, and eyeshadow palettes.

At the line’s launch event, she explained that she’s been using the products for two years as part of her daily beauty routine, notably the Vitamin C and Retinol, because they help her skin seem younger and more vibrant. Even more intriguing is that, like Ini Edo, the line’s focus is on empowering women to embrace and care for their natural chocolate skin tones.

11. Adesua Etomi-Wellington

  • Age: 37 years old
  • State of origin: Edo State
  • Relationship status: married
  • Best features: height, figure, and nose
  • Children: 1
  • Known for: The Wedding Party

Adesua Etomi has been the topic of most Nigerian actresses’ beauty discussions for the past few years, since her breakout role in The Wedding Party opposite the dashing Banky W, whom she later married.

The Edo State stunner is an astounding 5 feet, 5 inches tall, and she has crystal blue eyes, a toned body that’s curvaceous in all the right places, and porcelain white skin. The actress’s flexibility stems from her years of ballet and gymnastics training.

Adesua’s ability to elevate any ensemble is one of her abilities. Because of her effortless style and ability to make even the simplest of clothing look extraordinary, she has become a fashion icon for Nigerian designers. She favors a number of designers, including Purple, Matopeda, and Mai Atafo. The actress has been mum about her snap-back game, despite the fact that she looks incredible after giving birth to her first kid in 2021.

12. Tana Adelana

  • State of origin: Enugu State

  • Best features: height, eyes, and jaw

A post shared by Tana Egbo-Adelana (@tanaadelana)

Tana is an actress who has been active in the industry for over twenty years but who remains relatively unknown, presumably due to her desire to keep private matters out of the public eye. One of the most attractive Nigerian actors, she began her career as an OAP before making the transition to acting. Tana is the wife of Femi Adelana, and the mother of his two children.

Tana, who has been married for nearly a decade yet still receives many compliments on her appearance, has revealed some of her beauty secrets by revealing that she consumes large quantities of water through both bathing and drinking. She also eats a lot of vegetables and proteins, avoids processed foods, and hasn’t had sweets in years. She has a tall and slender frame, standing 5 feet and 8 inches.

13. Adunni Ade

  • Age: 40 years old
  • Nationality: German-Irish / Nigerian
  • Relationship status: divorced
  • Best features: height, eyes, and hair
  • Children: 2
  • Known for: It‚Äôs Her Day

A post shared by Adunni Ade (@iamadunniade)

It is easy to see why Adunni Ade has a memorable appearance. The New York-born actress looks exactly as Nigerians imagine a half-caste to look like because she was born to a Nigerian father and a German Irish mother. She began her career as a fashion model, but when she returned to Nigeria after finishing school, she decided to pursue acting instead.

She has appeared in around 50 films since her debut in 2013 and has been praised for her charming smile and gorgeous skin. She hasn’t shared much about her self-care routine, but we do know that she uses SkinbyFaye products.

Besides her product line, though, Adunni Ade is a fitness fanatic; she spends a lot of time working up a sweat at the gym, which is undoubtedly her primary method of maintaining her figure after giving birth to two children.

14. Chinenye Ubah

  • Age: 53 years old
  • State of origin: Anambra
  • Relationship status: single
  • Best features: her legs
  • Known for: Akweke

Chinenye Ubah, who was born in Anambra and reared in Asaba, is one of the younger generations of actresses in Nollywood. The actress’s love for acting began at a young age, and she began landing roles even as a secondary school student. She established herself in the modeling industry, where she remained until returning to acting in high-profile parts in 2015.

Akwaeke, Pretty Little Things, and Agony of a Sister are among of Ubah’s most well-known films. She was considered one of the most stunning Nollywood stars because of her poise and elegance. She looks beautiful no matter what she wears since her radiant skin makes everything else pop.

The actress keeps her personal life and her secrets of staying young and beautiful close to the vest, giving few interviews and offering few if any hints. Moreover, she does not maintain a social media presence.

15. Damilola Adegbite

  • Age: 37 years old
  • State of origin: Lagos
  • Relationship status: divorced
  • Best features: her skin
  • Children: 1
  • Known for: Tinsel

A post shared by Damilola Adegbite (@adedamee)

If there is an actress who consistently exudes poise and sophistication, it would be Damilola Adegbite. The actress who shot to popularity thanks to her portrayal as Telema Duke on Tinsel has been called the sexiest in Nigeria on numerous occasions.

The actress came from a creative background, so she knows what it takes to succeed no matter what obstacles stand in her way. She always looks put together and stylish. She attributes her glowing complexion to the nutritious diet she promotes. The actress used to believe that eating watermelons made women smell better, but after doing some study, she changed her mind.

Adegbite is the proprietor of a health and wellness website where she shares advice on how to improve one’s emotional and physical well-being. She has authored a book on coping with trauma and other traumatic situations and their physiological effects. The book is mostly inspired by her ability to shake off hardship and soar. She has a kid with her ex-husband, the Ghanaian actor Chris Attoh.

16. Lilian Esoro

  • Age: 41 years old
  • State of origin: Imo State
  • Relationship status: divorced
  • Best features: legs, lips, and curves
  • Children: 1
  • Known for: Clinic Matters

There was some initial confusion as to whether or not the stunning Lilian Esoro was indeed from the state of Akwa Ibom. The actress from Imo State became well-known for her role as Nurse Abigail on Clinic Matters. Esoro has been dubbed the “patron saint of killer red lips” because she can pull off any red lip color.

She stepped up her game in the beauty industry by opening a spa, skincare line, nail salon, apparel line, and more under the Lioca brand. The actress is her own best advertiser, thus she regularly posts photos of herself using her own beauty products or performing her nightly/daily beauty rituals.

The fact that Lilian Esoro never appears to have a bad hair or nail day is another factor that sets her apart. Perhaps it’s because she also deals in hair. Whatever the case may be, she uses every single one of her services and products on herself, and we couldn’t be happier about it. Ubi Franklin, CEO of Triple MG Records, is Esoro’s ex-husband and the father of their kid.

17. Bimbo Ademoye

  • Age: 32 years old
  • State of origin: Lagos State
  • Relationship status: single
  • Best features: hourglass figure and skin
  • Known for: Looking for Baami and Sugar Rush

A post shared by Bimbo Ademoye (@bimboademoye)

Bimbo Ademoye, a stunning beauty, began her acting career in 2014, and by 2018, she was already making headlines. In 2018, Ademoye was included on Premium Times’ list of actresses to watch, and her meteoric climb to fame proved to be exactly as predicted. She quickly gained recognition in the beauty and fashion industries in addition to the film industry.

Ademoye became well-known in the fashion world for more than only her stunning appearance; she was also known as “the diva with the tiniest waist.” The combination of her porcelain skin, hourglass form, and impeccable taste in clothing propelled her to the top of the list of the most attractive Nigerian actors. At first, many people thought she underwent plastic surgery to get that figure, but she insists it’s all from genetics. She did, however, reveal that although she was born with a tiny waist, she keeps it that way by wearing her waist trainer for at least six hours every day.

The stunning woman admitted that she wouldn’t be opposed to undergoing plastic surgery in the event that she loses her curves for whatever reason, such as pregnancy or weight gain. The organic skincare line Jennysglow has the actress as its endorser. Bimbo Ademoye does not have a significant other.

A post shared by MERCY AIGBE ADEOTI (@realmercyaigbe)

Before landing her breakthrough part in a Yoruba film in 2006, actor Mercy Aigbe cut her teeth on television in popular dramas like Papa Ajasco. Since she first gained attention, the actress has done a lot to prove that she deserves to be called the most beautiful Nigerian actress of all time. To begin, it would be remiss not to include a few of the actress’s incredibly chic aseobi ensembles.

While Aigbe’s schedule may rival that of any other working actor, one thing about her that is anything but casual is her impeccable sense of style. She said in an interview that she regularly exercises, gets plenty of sleep, consumes lots of fruits and vegetables, limits her intake of high-calorie meals, and never eats after 9 p.m. Furthermore, twice a month she indulges in a full body exfoliation, massage, and facial.

The mother of three has made a successful career out of her impeccable sense of style and is an outspoken supporter of the concept of “aging gracefully.” She runs the MagDivas and AseobiMercy retail chains, both of which specialize in women’s fashion and retail. Recently, Mercy Aigbe wedded to Hon. Kazim Adeoti after her first marriage to Lanre Gentry ended in divorce. She’s a mother of two.

A post shared by Osas Ighodaro (@officialosas)

Osas Ighodaro, a Nigerian-American actress, first appeared on the Nollywood scene in 2012 with her role as Adanna in Tinsel. Since then, she has diversified her resume by adding the roles of producer, host, dancer, model, and philanthropist to her existing ones. The actress, who is frequently referred to as hot, distinguishes herself by the parts she chooses to play.

Osas revealed her daily beauty routine in the Ndani TV series Stripped. She admitted to washing her face twice a day and never going to bed with makeup on, so she has a rigid routine for removing her full face of makeup at the end of the day. Wiping, washing, air-drying, toning, spraying, and moisturizing are all part of the routine.

Osas believes that the skin is a reflection of one’s internal state, thus she drinks plenty of water to keep her internal organs healthy. Osas has maintained her place as one of the actresses with the hottest bodies thanks to this and her regular sessions at the gym and the dancing studio. The father of her child, Gbenro Ajibade, was her husband.

20. Chacha Eke Faani

  • State of origin: Ebonyi State

A post shared by ChaCha Eke Faani (@chachaekefaani)

Chacha Eke’s family drama captivated the media, despite the fact that she has been performing since 2012 and is a very great actress. She has been married to the filmmaker Austin Faani for a long time, and the couple has four kids together.

When Chacha revealed the extremely challenging process she goes through to regain her figure back after giving baby, many mouths began to wag. It included a strict diet of healthful foods and lots of vigorous exercise, as well as the practically excessive use of hot water for drinking, sitting, and bathing. She got the results she needed, but few people were ready to give it a shot.

Eke looks even younger now that she’s a mother of four. She uses Susan Channel skin care products, which have prevented any bleaching from occurring. In general, she has a very attractive appearance.
