5 Nollywood Actresses That Were Former Beauty Queens (Photos)

The movie industry in Nigeria, which is called Nollywood, has experienced a lot of changes and has grown from where it was to a world-class standard.

Some of our movies stars have had collaborations with international artists.

Many talents are in the industry and some of them are ex-beauty queens. They are;

1. Nengi Rebecca Hampson

The Bayelsa State-born elegant lady was once a contestant in the Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria beauty pageant as far back as 2017.

She made it to the last five standing but did not go home with the crown.

Ms. Hampson is now into acting and has featured in some Nollywood movies and series.

2. Nancy Isime

The Edo State-born actress started her career as a model before venturing into beauty contests.

In 2009, she was crowned as the Miss Valentine International, after which she joined Nollywood. She has been a delight in the industry with her unique acting style, blonde low cut, and has also made her way to the big screen alongside other notable movie stars.

3. Linda Osifo

She is one lady who always looks happy with a ready smile on her face. She has participated in two pageants that were held in 2011.

She emerged as the first runner-up in Miss Nigeria Entertainment Canada and the second runner-up in the Miss AfriCanada Beauty pageant.

Not only is she an actress, but she is also a television host like her colleague, Nancy Isime.

4. Erica Ngozi Nlewedim

A year after she was crowned Miss Photogenic in the beauty pageant called "Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria", Erica Nlewedim decided to join other actors in the movie industry as an actress.

She has so far, made quite an impression as she was named one of the "New Generational Actresses".

5. Osas Ighodaro

She was born outside the shores of Nigeria, the United States of America, to be precise. It was there her career began, first as a beauty queen in 2010 when she became the winner of Miss Black USA. She then started modeling before her return to Nigeria.

She is a presenter who ultimately joined the movie industry and has been a force to reckon with.
