Below are the Top 10 Richest Nollywood Actresses of All Times. Though they have a humble beginning, they have quietly made it to the top as compiled by

1) Kate Henshaw-Nuttall –67 Million Naira

By 2006, she had earned N10 million and the following year, she reached N12 million. The warm and beautiful star is also a model, a former Glo Ambassador, and face of Onga (brand from Promasidor) and has since earned a whopping N20 million between 2008 and 2010.

2) Genevieve Nnaji – 64 Million Naira

By 2009, she raised the bar and she was paid $25,000 in the blockbuster international hit movie ‘IJE’ produced by Chineze Anyaene. A model and also a singer, she became the Face of Lux in 2004 and was subsequently involved with Pronto beverage and Omo detergent.

Between 2004 and 2006, she earned a whopping N31.3 million.

N14.7 million came from her two-year deal with Lux ($100,000). With no great interest in real estate, she decided to dive into the fashion industry. She launched her clothing line St. Genevieve in 2008 which is presently being managed by fashion icon Zizi Cardow and is reportedly worth N20 million.

There is no doubt that she would have been topping this list with a great margin if she eventually got the Glo deal. She became the first to be contacted by Globacom, but she demanded N50 million while globacom wanted to sign her on for N30 million. She’s reported to have tried later to salvage the deal, but she had already lost it.

3) Ini Edo – 60 Million Naira

She has five buildings to her credit and another one to be completed by the end of the year. Most of the buildings are being rented to tenants.  By 2007, she had earned N15.7 million from movies and her businesses.

She has just produced her latest flick ‘Memories Of The Heart’ which will be premiered in the United States. She is part of the Glo pride pack and is also part of the project to move Nollywood to another level. She is fully involved with Nollywood USA.

4) Rita Dominic – 58 Million Naira

In 2004, she won the City Peoples Award as the Most Outstanding Actress. The face of Nokia and the Glo ambassador is also a business woman. Rita has done well both as an actress and a model. Her assets include landed properties and two homes estimated to be worth over N40 million. Between 2008 and 2009, she earned N16million (most of it part of the money coming from Nokia and Glo.) She is about to launch a book and produce her own films.

5) Mercy Johnson – 55 Million Naira

By 2008, Mercy Johnson had appeared in fifteen movies and earned N11.4 million from movies alone. The following year, she earned N13 million and she featured in the Emen Isong hit movie ‘Guilty Pleasures’. She is also an investor in properties and she is about to complete two houses at the moment. She also owns about six landed properties in Lagos.

6) Omotola Jalade Ekeinde – 53 Million Naira

In 2007, she grossed N9 million. Omotola takes it easy with her life and also has great passion for cars. She drives more expensive cars than any actress in Nollywood and her garage is estimated to be worth N20 million. The mother, model and musician has recently stepped up her game in the music industry.

Her first album ‘Gba’ was her first introduction to the music industry but her sophomore album ‘Me, Myself & Eyes’ has defined her as truly talented. The production and promotion of her album cost her a whopping N13 million.

7) Patience Ozokwor – 51 Million Naira

The Enugu star is nicknamed ‘Mama G’ in Nollywood. She is the oldest on the list and is notable for her tough roles in movies. ‘Mama G’, who is also a musician, has been consistent in the industry and her roles have been raw energy. She is very diverse in her investments but also has several landed properties. She also started business very early.

Uche Jombo – 49.5 Million Naira

In 2008, she pocketed N10 million for her slick performances in several movies.

The Glo ambassador and model, who earned more than N11 million in 2009, seems unstoppable at the moment. The year 2011/2012 could see her top this list, since some of her movies are not yet released and the ones being shown in cinemas are still enjoying sold-out status across the continent.

9) Monalisa Chinda –50 Million Naira

Between 2004 and 2008, Monalisa Chinda earned about N25 million. The actress and producer is about to release her movie which is already in its final stages. She also owns landed properties in choice locations in both Rivers State and Lagos.

10) Chioma Chukwuka – 46 Million Naira

The absolutely scandal-free actress in Nollywood has featured in about 70 movies and has raked in millions for herself and family. She earned N8 million from movies in 2007. In 2008, she also earned a whopping N9 million. She owns two houses and various properties in Lagos and her home state.
