Few weeks ago, audacious filmmaker and critique, Charles Novia released his best actresses for the year 2014. He has also come up with his list for best actors, 2014.
It could be recalled that in 2013, Nollywood actor, OC Ukeje topped the list, but this year, Sadiq Daba of the award winning movie 'October 1' topped his list.
According to Charles Novia, his list is not based on an actor's fan base or popularity.
"For the crowd which believes that an actor’s popularity and fan base automatically means that such an actor must be on lists such as this, I say to you; get your heads out of your closets.
