In our recent trivia series, ‘Replace with a Nigerian actor’, we asked fans who would play the Olivia Pope role to a tee and they chose Nse Ikpe-Etim.


The rule of the trivia game states that we have to provide a popular character and give 4 Nigerian actors that can play that same role. Fans then have to pick the actor they think will ace the role. For this edition, they were to pick between Kehinde Bankole, Omoni Oboli, Genevieve Nnaji and Nse Ikpe-Etim to play the role of ‘Olivia Pope’ from Scandal.

72% of fans which is 73 out of 101 people who responded believe that Nse Ikpe is best suited for the role. 25 people voted that Genevieve would ace the role if given the opportunity. However, fans were not convinced that either Kehinde Bankole or Omoni Oboli could do justice to the role. Only 3 people voted in favour of Kehinde while nobody voted for Ooni.

Nse Ikpe Etim seems to have a special place in the heart of fans. They believe that she is the perfect person to play roles where the female is in a position of power and knows how to wield. She had been voted to play the role of Cersei Lannister in a previous episode so this choice by fans is not particularly surprising. We also want to hear from you, tell us which of these actresses you believe would be the perfect Olivia Pope.
