Glamour Girls’ cast Sharon Ooja, Nse Ikpe-Etim, Segilola Ogidan, Toke Makinwa, and Joselyn Dumas are the cover stars of This Day Style‘s latest issue.


The newly released movie, which is a remake of a Nigerian 90’s cult classic, produced by the Play Network Studios, made history less than a week after its release by becoming the first Nollywood film to rank in the top five Netflix global charts.

In this issue, the cast reveals what it was like to be part of a remake of an iconic film and how they tried to bring their characters to life and much more.

Check out excerpts from the fashion cover below:

Toke Makinwa on how it feels to be part of the project

I feel so honoured and extremely blessed to have been a part of such an epic movie. As we all know, Glamour girls is one of the movies that shaped Nollywood in the 90s. You can’t think of old Nollywood movies without mentioning Glamour girls because it was sensational. The remake in these present times will be even more sensational, and I get to play one of the lead characters too. I can’t wait for the world to watch this amazing project.

Nse Ikpe-Etim on the most challenging part about bringing the script to life

Every project has challenges because every new role comes with a new character one has to embody, and that is where challenges lie for me as an actress. Playing “Donna” was exceptionally challenging because “Glamour Girls” is a title that comes with nostalgia and big shoes to fill. Anyhoo, this is Glamour Girls in these times, and it is very humbling that I got to play “Mama Bear” Donna…

Sharon Ooja on how the message in the film “Glamour Girls” connects with current events, and what it seeks to address 

Glamour girls address the fast life and the consequences that come with it. It addresses the fact that all that glitters isn’t gold and how hard work pays… a lot of people want things fast without working hard.

Segilola Ogidan on what she hates the most about her character

I don’t hate her per se. She’s beautifully flawed, which is not necessarily her fault but due to her upbringing and the lack of love and attention shown to her by her parents and siblings. That said, I dislike some of her character flaws, particularly her lack of control over her life because she’s constantly drugged up.

Joselyn Dumas on what she loves about the character she played

Jemma’s heart. As I say, she’s the truth and the spice. She’s good to a fault; when she loves, she loves to bits. You see her strip off all sorts of emotions. We see her vulnerable moments, highs, lows and everything in between and through it all, staying strong amid her adversaries.
