For 2019, several Yoruba movie stars gave sterling performances to their large followership.

However, seven of these movie stars performed brilliantly and became outstanding in their interpretation of roles or characters in the movies they featured in throughout 2019.

These movie stars not only continue to shine like bright stars but also nabbed different corporate and brand endorsements as a result of their brilliant interpretation of roles.

Mide Martins is one of the top actresses that was outstanding in 2019. Married to Afeez Abiodun – an actor, director, and producer – Mide is currently on the list of the most sought-after actresses not because she’s the daughter of a late popular actress but because she is one of the darlings of fans and filmmakers on screen and on social media.
