iFilm... Top 50 Nigerian TV Shows Of All Time

Before Nollywood became a name synonymous with "Nigerian television", TV shows and programs were big items for Nigerians to tune to. However all that started to dwindle in 1992, with the release of Nollywood's first main product, Living in Bondage, which made people look at releasing home videos and what could be earned from it.
Prior to the explosion of home videos in the late 1990's, a number of TV shows were highly received by viewers in different parts of Nigeria while some other shows have continued to draw in a large number of viewers despite the large amount of Nigerian home videos made available for people to watch.
