Full list of Yoruba Nollywood actresses

The Nigerian movie industry a.k.a Nollywood has produced a lot of notable actors and actresses from the Yoruba tribe that are currently making waves in the industry, both locally and internationally.

The Yoruba arm of Nollywood has also produced countless blockbuster movies that have helped establish Nollywood’s name in the circle of other global industries.

Nollywood actresses that are of Yoruba origin run into hundreds today, a clear indication of how big the industry has become.
