For most young Nigerians, growing up in the 00s, Nollywood veteran, Victor Osuagwu —alongside other comic icons like, John Okafor (Mr Ibu), Sam Loco-Efe, Charles Awurum and others— were one of the sources of happiness and pure laughter on our TV screens.
You can only imagine how nostalgic one will be when we get to see throwback photos from some of these movies that made us crack our ribs back then.
