WELCOME to 2023! The year just got started, and we are sure it has been a good one for you so far.
This weekend happens to be the first weekend of 2023, and it would definitely not be out of place for you to take time out, relax, and enjoy some cool Nollywood movies.
Now, purge your mind of the feeling that Nollywood movies are not good enough. These are, in fact, carefully-selected movies made for the worldwide audience, with highly-trained and professional crew members, and movies cast made up of some A-list actors. Remember that the previous year, our movies performed excellently well.
