Nollywood Sexiest: Gbenro Ajibade, Tope Osoba go out

The picture for the next phase of the Sexiest in Nollywood has taken shape as twenty women and men of the original 25 who began the quest have emerged as Gbenro Ajibade and Tope Osoba failed to make the bill after poor outing in the week’s voting.

Tope Osoba has been particularly weak for sometime now, failing to boost her weekly voting and ultimately her cumulative votes which have kept her going for weeks now could not hold out any longer. For Gbenro, it was a gallant fight, that pitch the battle between him, Kalu Ikeagwu, O.C. Ukeje and Emeka Enyiocha but trio somehow triumph over the model/actor. It was a close call but a call that saw the trio surviving yet again.


Gbenro has now joined Kenneth Okolie,Michael Okon, Gideon Okeke, and Bobby Obodo on the sideline, in the men’s category of the quest while Tope joins Uche Iwuji, Ejiro Okurame, Nuella Njubigbo and Damilola Adegbite, at the exit in the women’s category.

Now, the battle continues with 20 men and 20 women with 5 men and 5 women still sitting precariously in the ‘drop zone’. With the ouster of Tope Osoba and Gbenro Ajibade, Anita Joseph and Pat Attah move up into the ‘Drop Zone’, being the two contestants with the weakest cumulative votes among those in the ‘Safe Zone’.


For weeks now, Anita seems to have gone to sleep, depending only on her cumulative votes to keep afloat. She had a strong beginning but later pelted out in substance. Same goes for Pat Attah who started like a good runner only to fade away as the quest progresses.

One person that had a fabulous week is Chigozie Atuanya. Another week like the previous one for the actor and he may see himself into the ‘Safe Zone’. Angela Okorie too, is worthy of mention as she put up a good fight last week to boost her run.

However, it is important to note that whether you are on the ‘Drop Zone’ or on the ‘Safe Zone’, the eviction hammer could go any way depending on the outcome of the week’s voting and previous accumulation of votes. Keep voting.
