Certainly all Nigerian actress very beautiful and talented. Some other rich are slightly smaller fortune, but all interesting to watch, to observe the performance of different roles. Just those richer Kate Hensho example, perhaps a bit schaslyvishi. They just better fortune smiles for some good roles, paid more. Another, though they may have more talent, luck less. But without much exhausting work and will not work, no matter how talented you are.

Нигерийские женщины так прекрасны, что просто нет слов. Нигерийское кино всегда заставляло меня испытывать всё новые и новые эмоции, а теперь, когда я вижу, что прекрасные девушки из Нигерии становятся всё популярнее и богаче, моё сердце бьётся быстрее и радостнее. Мне очень приятно видеть, что такие юные молодые женщины из Нигерии уже состоялись в жизни, разбогатели. Наблюдая за тем, как растут, процветают и богатеют нигерийские актрисы, я становлюсь всё более заинтересованным в их новых ролях в кино, мне становятся интересны подробности их личной жизни, ибо это так увлекательно и так захватывающе.

Very pretty woman, and worthy of respect. Has achieved such heights in Hollywood, for which he obtained so much money. They are all different among themselves, but they all share a strong steel character, because some under the yoke of society breaks down, and they have achieved their goals. And as said above in the comment, these women from East Africa, despite the fact, as previously belonged to black, had proved its right and the rights of the whole nation that they are the same as other people and no need to judge a person by the color of their skin, the main soul talent.

These women are worthy an applause! I consider, that each person on a planet, even from the smallest small town can achieve heights and be pulled out in people. And, these women from East Africa simply good fellows! Not only that they have proved, that black people are capable on much, and thus have not lost human feelings, such as: love, kindness, sympathy and support. Their families too good fellows, wait and support them during shootings and absence of the house. For their families they are not important rich or not!

Kate Hensho most expensive actress. In her biggest assets. Probably gets good income from signing lucrative deals. She also brings a good income agreement with perfume company, and the fact that she became the face of Blessing spirits. Because the number of films which Kate withdrawn low as compared to the rest of the richest Hollywood stars. But all this actress was not easy to achieve such results. Filming is hard work.
