- The Nollywood industry is famous for quite a number of movies with ample lover boys
- Some actors such as Jim Iyke, Emeka Ike, Ramsey Nouah and Desmond Elliot, are known to play these roles very well
- Legit.ng readers recently decided on who their favourite Nollywood lover boy is
Over the years, the Nigerian film industry, Nollywood, has churned out movies with various storylines, most of which have to do with relationships or perhaps a big boy from the city falling in love with a village girl.
Well, these scripts are usually acted out by the same set of movie stars and they have become known over the years for it.
For instance, Emeka Ike and Ramsey Nouah have been known to be Nollywood’s designated lover boys, while the likes of Jim Iyke are known for being hard guys with a hint of lover boy.
Actors like Patience Ozokwor, Sola Sobowale or Eucharia Anunobi usually act as wicked mother in-laws while Genevieve Nnaji, Omotola, Ini Edo, are usually the damsels in distress that are eventually snatched by their knights in shining armours, the lover boys.
Just recently, Legit.ng decided to focus on Nollywood lover boys and came up with four of the most popular ones. Readers were then asked to pick their favourites. This was done via a Twitter poll.
The stars on the list included Jim Iyke, Emeka Ike, Ramsey Nouah and Desmond Elliot.

Jim Iyke came in second with 26.3% while Emeka Ike had 10.2% votes.
