Yoruba Nollywood Actresses that are not Yoruba: Yes we all love Yoruba movies(well me) for their very educative story lines, humour and fantastic representation of the Yoruba culture. In the very accommodating culture of the Yoruba’s we have so many Non Yoruba actors and actresses plying their trade in the Yoruba Genre which cannot be said of in the English genre. Truth is the Yoruba section is always kind of relegated as the “class B’s” which isn’t supposed to be so I mean apart from Omotola and recently Funke Akindele and Eniola Badmus there hasnt really been room for Yoruba actresses in English movies despite some of them also being very much educated.
