90s to Early 2000s Nollywood! You just had to be there. It was WILD. It’s so funny how much time changes things and gives us newer perspectives about things. Back in the day, Nollywood is heavily ridiculed and our films were called all manner of derogatory names. Now, those same movies that came out many many years ago are being praised and celebrated as some of the most exciting movies to come out of Nigeria.
Names like Regina Askia, Clarion Chukwura, Eucharia Anunobi to name a few pioneered a very exciting time in Nigerian movies and television. That 90s/2000s era is till today known for the very specific type of fashion, hair, dance moves, etc. Again, you had to have been there to fully enjoy it.
Well this year, to celebrate her birthday entrepreneur and influencer Tania Omotayo threw herself a birthday bash where she invited some of her closest friends in and out of the Nigerian entertainment industry. The theme of the party was “90s/Early 2000s Nollywood” and well let’s just say, the attendees definitely took the assignment and ran with it – especially socialite, actress and influencer Toke Makinwa.
Below are the pictures from the birthday bash as well as some videos from the very exclusive event.
Taking to Instagram, the celebrant Tania Omotayo posted this video above with the caption which read:

The event was very exclusive and the people who went did not and have still not uploaded a lot of pictures from the day unto their main social media pages, but you know me…I got you!
Here are screenshots from stories of people who were in attendance showing off some of your favorite Nigerian celebrities in their best 90s/early 2000s Nollywood Babes fashion. This is a very good theme for a party and I’m sure after this many people will use it as a theme for their own celebrations.
