Following up on its uber-popular comedy TV series, “Jenifa’s Diary”, Funke Akindele’s SceneOne Productions has released the first teaser for a new series, Industreet, a musical drama that will star K-Switch, Linda Ejifor and Lydia Forson.

Directed by Abdul Rasheed Bello (or JJC as he is better known), the upcoming TV musical drama will focus on survival in the entertainment industry, and on the hustle in the ghetto.
According to Akindele, who serves as producer, and will also star in the new series, Industreet is inspired by her musician husband, JJC.

The series will also star Charles Okocha, Mo-Easy, Freeze of Cool FM, Tina Mba, Kunle Coker, Akah Nnani among others.

We don’t know if it’s just us but, the series already looks like it shares some eerie similarities with “Empire,” FOX’s musical drama that stars Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, after all, who doesn’t love a good musical drama right?

No official word on a release date or even where we can catch the new series yet, but we expect all that to be cleared up in the coming weeks. We’ll keep our ears to the ground and bring you word on where and when you can catch it as soon as it gets out.

In the meantime though, enjoy the short teaser below.

  3. Nice one, @least different from the regular movie review but is it in an ascending or descending order? So who is the top among the ten?

  5. I agree with everyone but Joseph Benjamin. I saw Mr and Mrs with him and Nse Ikpe Etim and I spent the entire movie cringing. He is so awkward and his gestures seem to say the exact opposite of his words.

    Kick uncle out and put Femi Branch instead, Femi’s work in the Tajudeen Adepetu Soap Domino has more than secured him a spot in this top 10 abeg.

    • Hey thanks for your comment. This was the exact argument we had to deal with but Femi Branch seems to always be angry about something and I don’t know why…lol…that’s why Joseph made the list

  7. Nice review guys. To be honest am not a regular Nollywood ‘watcher’ so am not so familiar with one or two names on d list. But with this, anytime I decide to watch a Nollywood movie, I’ll be looking out for these 21st Century actors 🙂

    • Thanks Nnenna for the comment.Yeah, you should watch out for these guys and you should even watch more nollywood. Lets promote what’s ours

  9. Nice list… for the most part I don’t agree but I’m guessing if you’re considering only cinema actors and overpopular actors then maybe but… chai… Joseph Benjamin, really?

    No offense to Joseph though, but…. na

    • lol…everyone seems to have a problem with Uncle Jo, alright noted again. hmmm…well some of this guys are not over popular and who are the actors you feel are better than this guys? If you wouldn’t mind I will want to know. Thanks for the comment

      • Joseph Benjamin, nawa oh…..dude how do you decide who a good actor is? you watch OC, Yemi, Femi, etc and then watch Joseph and think OK he should be on the same list? and then add originality in expression and body language? I cringe. I honestly think, the reason you felt he was good was because it was refreshing to see a new face, I really do believe it. so try watching him again in other stuff and not just tango with me, if you still feel he should be in no7 above yemi black please do reply; I would like to know.

        The guy is the epitome of boring. I always forget he was in a movie after I watch it.

        • I personally seem to enjoy his acting but maybe I havent seen Yemi Blaq’s movie in a while. I will check him out. Thanks for spotting that too. All of you I believe can’t be wrong, so my apologies.

  11. As good an actor as Femi Branch is, I agree. “DUDE ALWAYS SEEMS ANGRY”. Ramsey Nouah at No. 4 is very disappointing. That guy is a versatile actor mehn! He can act anything. Pastor(Church Business), youth corper/psycopathic bestfriend(The Figurine), a Naija criminal mastermind(CROSS), a guy with an uncontrollable temper (The Private Storm). He has even featured in Yoruba movies. So in considering quality of acting, I think versatility should be considered. Cos that’s what is causing Nollywood to be so stilted- Stereotypes(the ones that just excel at certain roles).

    • Oh C.Y so you do watch Nollywood movies afterall….lol..nice knowledge about the guy. He s definitely one of the best

  13. I don’t like most of the actors on this list. I absolutely love Odunlakin. he’s one of the best Yoruba actors ever. OC Ukeje. if I meet him, I’ll probably get a restraining order. Femi Brainad is a great actor but I think Femi Branch is a better actor and I’m surprised he’s not on the list

  15. Good list…not completely sure I agree because I don’t really watch movies in general, talk less of nollywood films. However, is this list telling me that there’s no good female 21st century nollywood actor? Just find it strange that there’s none here.

  17. LMAO! This seems more like 10 Nollywood active actresses from 2010-2013. Even at that kilode? Though this list is your opinion, letting your preference overcloud your judgements is not good business. No Patience Uzorkwo? No Funlola? Infact a list where Omotola and Rita are not in top five and Genevieve in fourth position with people like Funke and Nse coming before them is a joke. I even saw the best actor list too where OC (what?) Ukeje and Wale Ojo came before Ramsey Nouah. LMAO. As a big fan of 9ja films who started watching from its VHS days aka homevideo to VCD aka Nollywood and this Cinema days I am qualified to DISAGREE with this 21st century list. Nollywood didn’t start yesterday. Nobody makes a list in hollywood then puts Jennifer Lawrence or Anne Hatheway before Meryl Streep or Julia Robert. Why put starters on same list with veterans? To disrespect them? Bimbo, Omotola, Genevieve & Rita, I apologise to y’all on behalf of the blogger. I apologise to Ramsey too. SMH.

    Okay I am guilty. posted same thing above on the best actress list. But since when did Wale and Hakim join nollywood? So one film makes them more qualified than men that courted a fanbase and helped build nollywood to what it is today. After years of struggling to break into Hollywood with little or no success they come to nollywood and be crowned kings? SMH. Ramsey, Sam Dede, Jim Iyke, KOK and all veteran nollywood actors that help build the industry I apologise to y’all unbehalf of the blogger.

  19. OMFGosh!!! You nailed it! Apologies for not stating these facts earlier… Maybe i let “crowd movement” judge my sense of critique.
    M.Y, KiKi, Terdoh, Sirkastic et.al, This guy made a huge point! But maybe the phrase ’21st century’ added to the title of the post justifies their selection. Who knows? 21st century could be a metaphor.

  21. I’m having conflicting issues with Hakeem been on the list. How does one decide who a Nollywood actor is? Do they have to be Nigerian and or act in nollywood movies or as long as you feature in a nollywood movie then you are a nollywood actor. I don’t know, this is a tricky one…maybe you guys should explain what your own version of Nollywood and nollywood actor is….because this is relative- so we know understand Hakeem and Wale’s positions on the list better.

    • For me, you don’t have to be in the industry for 10 years before you are recognized as been talented. There are actors who have been doing this for 15 years who are not even gonna smell the list…As long as you have featured in A Nollywood movie and you are Nigerian and you keep doing that, logically you are a Nollywood actor. And check out the talent this guys have from before even joining Nollywood and add it up to their experience in the Nollywood movies and you have undeniable talents.
