What Ever Happened to Nollywood Romantic Movies

When i first started watching Nollywood movies 13 years ago (it was the summer of 2000 at a hair braiding shop in NYC) what really got me hooked was the love stories and romantic movies, which always headlined;

  • Genny + Ramsey (my favourite)
  • Genny + Emeka Ike
  • Genny + RMD
  • Genny + Muna Obiekwe
  • Stella Damasus + RMD (my 2nd Favourite)
  • Omotola + Zach Orji etc etc

I mean those were the good ole days and  I miss em so much. Love stories and Romantic Movies sell well so I suggest the good producers (abeg i said good producers/directors so all you illiterate razzistic producers can take a couple of seats over there to the left - cos you can NOT do it so dont touch it - just continue with your "runs" and "campus movies since that is what you do best :)  ) 
I think the last great love story movie i watched and truly loved and will consider "one of my all time classic" was LETTERS TO A STRANGER  starring Yemi Blaq and Genny produced by Fred Amata. It was great, it was just one part and the ending was NOT predictable. I just loved it and often wondered with the way it ended if by any chance do a sequel.
Talking about Yemi Blaq, one of the most under rated actors ever (kinda remind me as the male version of Bimbo Akintola) - He needs to be more famous cos he is such a great actor  and yall know I am a sucker for eloquence and articulation and great delivery in a cute actor at that. I think someone needs to write a beautiful love story starring him and Nse Ikpe Etim . They have such a great chemistry together. Alternatively it could also star Yemi Blaq and Rita Dominic. I love them together too.
As we are talking about Romantic Movies I don't know if you have heard this but the whole cast of The Best Man have met again and currently on location in Toronto shooting a sequel after 10 years (yes everybody is in it including Nia, Taye, Morris, Monica, etc.) I am so excited. Now if only they will do same or redo Love Jones, that will even make my day the better.
