I can’t believe the Nollywood film industry as we know it, is 20 years old. To celebrate 20 years of the 3rd fasted growing movie industry in the world after Bollywood and Hollywood, a dinner was held on March 2nd at the State House in Marina, every one who mattered in Nollywood was there (incidentally Omotola Jalade Ekeinde was noticeably absent). Some of those who showed up were Genevieve Nnaji, Rita Dominic, Desmond Elliot, Chika Ike, Rita Dominic, Uche Jombo who was boo’d with her Puerto Rican hubby Kenny Rodriguez, RMD, Ghanaian actress Juliet Ibrahim, Sayyuu Dantata (Chairman MRS Petroleum), Kanu Nwakwo, Osita Iheme & many more.

The Nollywood divas turned up in some interesting outfits and makeup. See all the fashion scoop after the jump and let us know who was your best and worst dressed on the night?
