Throwback Thursday: Who Remembers Zack Orji And Eucharia Anunobi's memorable sex scene in "Glamour Girls" That Shook Nigerian In 1994?

Today throwback Thursday, TheFamousNaija focuses on the 1994 blockbuster Nollywood movie 'Glamour Girls'. We are focusing on the controversial sex scene between Zack Orji and Eucharia Anunobi.

Zack Orji took his wife (played by Tina Amuziam) away from the University to Italy. The wife was Eucharia Anunobi's friend in school. While in Italy, he introduced his wife to prostitution and they made the highest deal when his wife slept with a dog. Though she rejected sleeping with the dog but her husband begged and cajoled her.

She convinced her husband to come and invest in Nigeria while she stayed back to hustle in case he runs short of money in the course of the investment and building of their mansion.

He returned, established business and built a mansion. He then brought in the wife's friend, Eucharia Anunobi who seduced him and they had series of sex sessions, in the bathroom, bathtub, room, bed, everywhere.

The hot sex scenes played by Zack Orji and Eucharia Anunobi became the talk of the town in Nigeria. That was the first sex scene to shake the Nigerian movie industry. It looked SO real for a movie produced as at that time.

Many criticised Eucharia Anunobi for that role, but the role brought her into the limelight.

Also see what Eucharia and Zack look like now after many years.

Simi who reacted to Naira Marley's arrest in a question and answer session revealed that she is not happy about it.

 Recall that Naira Marley had accused her of snubbing him at an event. According to him, maybe it was due to his stance on Internet fraudsters who Simi has always maintained her disdain for their illegal act.

The singer who also described herself as a person of conviction disclosed that she will fight for anything she believes in. She further reveals that money doesn't drive her and she doesn't live to impress anyone.

Simi who further revealed that she is hard to bully as she reacted to Naira Marley's arrest, added that she doesn't know how to hold a grudge either.

She is poised to take over the fashion world with her new luxury Fenty line. And Rihanna began the promotional tour for the fledgeling brand at a pop-up presentation in Paris on Wednesday, after casually revealing she's been living in London for a year.

The singer, 31, flaunted her enviable figure in a tiny white jacket dress as she took the stage to introduce her ready-to-wear, footwear, accessories, and eyewear.

Daring to impress, the Diamonds songstress showcased her gorgeous gams as the skimpy number cut high on her thighs.

Her pert derriere was thrust on centre stage as the mini-dress hugged her famous curves tightly.

She left her trademark raven tresses long and loose as they cascaded over her shoulders allowing a full view of her youthful face.

The Umbrella hitmaker has joined forces with luxury group LVMH to launch 'Fenty', her own brand of clothes, shoes and accessories.

Theresa May
Theresa May is set to name her departure date on Friday as the pressure mounts for her to quit.

Downing Street has insisted the government will publish the PM's revised deal tomorrow amid an angry backlash.

But following the resignation of Leader of the House Andrea Leadsom, Theresa May's position looks increasingly perilous.

Mrs May will meet the chair of the 1922 committee Sir Graham Brady when she is expected to give a date for her resignation.

She is expected to announce her resignation, although she'll stay as interim leader while a new PM is elected by Tory MPs and members.

Her already shaky grip on power was fatally undermined by offering the prospect of a possible second referendum and closer trading arrangements with the EU in an attempt to try and persuade Remain-supporting MPs and Labour to help her deal to clear the Commons.

But those concessions triggered a revolt by some Brexit-supporting ministers including the resignation of Andrea Leadsom.

"I no longer believe that our approach will deliver on the referendum result," Leadsom, once a challenger to May to become prime minister, said in a resignation letter.

Heartbreaking audio WhatsApp messages from Emiliano Sala have been revealed on French television, in which the tragic Argentine tells a friend that he did NOT want to join Cardiff City.

Sala tragically died after the Piper Malibu private plane carrying Cardiff's £15million record signing was lost at sea.

Sala was flying from France on January 21, having returned to former club Nantes to retrieve his belongings and say farewell to staff and teammates, little more than 24 hours after completing his Premier League move.

Over two weeks later, Sala's body was identified after being pulled from the wreckage; pilot David Ibbotson has never been found.

Now, a WhatApp message sent by Sala to a friend on January 6 and released on Wednesday night's L’Équipe Enquete  documentary, show that the Argentine - despite admitting it was a good offer financially - was not keen on joining the Bluebirds.

"Last night, I sent a message to Meïssa [N'diaye, Sala's agent], he called me a few hours later," begins Sala. "So we had discussions and he told me the last night Franck Kita [son of Nantes owner Waldemar] sent him a message to talk, so he called him. They spoke. And, they want to sell me.

"So, there is the offer from Cardiff today. On their side, they have negotiated to get a lot of money. So they absolutely want me to go there.

"It is true that it is a good contract but from a football perspective it is not interesting for me. So… there you go, they are trying in every way to get me to go there.

"Me I am not scared to go there, because I have battled throughout my career, so to go there and fight, that does not make me scared.

“On the contrary. But also, I say to myself that Meïssa must find me something better between now and the end of the window. Meïssa has said no to Cardiff because he does not want me to go there.

"He thinks that in terms of football, in terms of where we are today, we are in a position of strength in every which way, in terms of on the pitch, the contract, all of that. But I don’t care about that and I do not want that. I don’t give a f*** about being in a position of strength.

"It is true that I would like to find something interesting in terms of contractually and also from a football perspective, but sometimes you can’t have both. On the other hand, I do not want to speak with Kita, because I do not want to get angry. He is someone who disgusts me when I am face to face with him.

"Him today, he wants to sell me to Cardiff because he has done a super negotiation, he will get the money he wants eh?”

“He, he wants me to go there, he hasn’t even asked what I want… All he cares about is money. So, today, we are like that. A complete mess. So there you go… I don’t know.

"I don’t know what to do because as I said to you it is I who has to get up every day and see the face of this person… But nobody is looking at me… myself… me internally, what I am having to go through.

"So, it is very hard, it is very hard, because I feel like there are not many people who would put themselves in my place.”

Sala's father, Horacio, tragically passed away last month also.
