Some of these actresses are actually great singers, while some have been regarded as epic failures when they delved into the music industry. Check out our 5 Nollywood star actresses who once delved into music:

1. Genevieve Nnaji


Multi award winning Nigerian actress, Genevieve Nnaji once tried her hands with music when she released a single and a video titled ‘No More’. The song was about an abusive lover who maltreated her till she finally got tired of it. Although, it was well received by fans, the actress hasn’t tried releasing any song since then but has been featured in several musical videos most especially D’banj’s ‘Fall In Love’ song.

2. Kate Henshaw

Kate Henshaw’s foray into the music scene was quite shocking when she released a gospel musical video a couple of years back. Her musical career was criticized as lacking courage, determination and drive. She was however credited for writing one of the best singles in a Nigerian movie, ‘Treasure’ which was the soundtrack for ‘A Million Tears’.

Listen to her Treasure song below:

3. Shan George

Veteran Nollywood actress also tried her hands on music once. The twice-married star actress’ move into music was almost catastrophic as she couldn’t battle for space in the competitive Nigerian music scene. Shan herself revealed in one of her interviews that she released the albums just for the people in her village.

Armed with a delectably sonorous voice, Dakore captured the hearts of Nigerians with the release of her debut single track titled Don’t Make Me. However, the song came under criticism concerning its lyrical composition.

She planned to release an album titled ‘Dakorious’ in 2009. Watch the video below:
