Memorable Shocking Scenes From Old Nollywood Movie, Glamour Girls

Okay, I took sometime out to attend to other stuff besides blogging , when my mind veered to the popular old Nigerian movie, Glamour Girls. If you are nodding your head in excitement for this movie I’m talking about, then you don old. If you have no idea what I’m talking about but you can insult your  senior on social media, just bring your head let me konk it first. Okay, if you don’t know this movie or cannot remember any scene from it, just stop here, go get your elder sibling or friend and continue reading. I took out time to watch this. I had to drag hubby along for this experience and oh, the memories were shocking and pleasing at the same time. It’s mind-boggling how we dissed movies of that era, when in the actual sense they showed more professional acting skills than most actors and actresses of today. This movie starred veteran names like Gloria Anozie, Late Jennifer Okere, Liz Benson, Ngozi Ezeonu,  Late Peter Bunor, Barbara Odoh, Sola Fosudo, Late J.T Tom-West, Keppy Ekpenyong and those whose names I can’t recall. I couldn’t help but notice some amazing facts and scenes in this movie. For your pleasure, let me put the spotlight on those.

The “expensive High class” prostitute: The prostitute played by Barbara Odoh who loves to charge 2,000 Naira per Night. Lol. No, she wasn’t a cheap prostitute. She was a high class prostitute but apparently 2,000 Naira was alot as at 1993/94-ish. One time she charged a rich client, J.T Tom-West, 7,000 Naira to stay for the whole week. The most hilarious part was when she blackmailed a politician with pictures taken of both of them in negligees. She asked for a 50,000 Naira ransom for the camera film. Wow!!! Fifty Thousand Naira Only?!! Nigeria was so good then, Asweragad!

The fashion: The Michael Jackson-inspired jacket worn by Jennifer “Sandra” Okere as she joined the glamour girls. I don’t know about you but it looked damn good then. Remember, it was black with gold frills at the shoulder. Everyone had shoulder pads in that era. Remind me the use of shoulder pads again. To walk proud and tall? To cushion bag straps on shoulders? Hahaha. What were those for, biko?

Everyone on set spoke crystal clear English: No phoney British-American-Indian accent. Roles were played in moderation. No over-acting or theatrics.

Superb storyline: I actually couldn’t predict the end. It seemed like I was watching it for the first time. The scenes were familiar but just couldn’t predict the end.

The Hairdos: Everyone rocked their natural hair except  Ngozi “Thelma” Ezeonu. Fast forward to today, you must either be playing a housegirl role or a madwoman to wear your natural hair.

The Telephone ringing scenes:…. were uncountable. In fact they should have called it “Telephone ringing girls” because almost every scene was a telephone ringing. Lol

Just watch the darn movie and bask in memories. Enjoy!

P.S: This movie credit goes to BTa movies on YouTube. Click on the blurry screen and it will direct you to YouTube. I’m trying to get a grab on Glamour Girls 2,  where Eucharia Anunobi and Zach Orji starred in.
