“I never called Nollywood Medicore”- Genevieve denies report

 Nollywood actress Genevieve Nnaji has finally reacted to the reports that she said Nollywood was bland and mediocre.
 Last weekend, Punch had published their chat with the actress where she explained that she had been scarce in Nollywood movies because:

Having practiced my art in international & professionally produced stories like ‘Ije’; ‘Mirror boy;’ and ‘Tango with me’, I don’t think I can return to the blandness and mediocrity that characterized Nollywood in the past.”

A Nollywood movie director, Mac Collins Chidebe, who obviously didn’t like her statement replied her yesterday and Genny just took to her IG page to set the records straight. Read her post after the cut

Genevieve Nnaji reacts to reports she called Nollywood ‘Bland and Mediocre’

Genevieve Nnaji has finally reacted to an interview she supposedly granted Punch in which she called Nollywood Bland and mediocre.


The statement attracted heavy criticism from industry players..

Reacting on her instagram page, she said..

“I never called my industry bland and mediocre. Truth or not, they were NOT MY WORDS. As a person/writer, you can “assume” what you like about my thought process but DO not project those thoughts as “quotes” by me. It’s distasteful, insensitive and quite unprofessional. It’s insulting to those limited few working hard to make a difference in the industry. I am a product of Nollywood and my loyalty remains unshaken.”


Incase you missed the interview, (read here) when asked why she hadn’t been in movies recently,she reportedly said

“I guess I haven’t found the right script yet. Creativity and depth are the qualities that I look out for in a script. In the beginning, the movie industry emphasised quantity but things are changing and there is an improvement in trend. I am among the people who advocate for the improvement of the industry.

So said, I am constantly watching out for the kind of stories I take part in.

I am in support of movies that show a great deal of professionalism and creativity. Having practiced my art in international & professionally produced stories like ‘Ije’; ‘Mirror boy;’ and ‘Tango with me’, I don’t think I can return to the blandness and mediocrity that characterized Nollywood in the past.”

Genevieve Nnaji : Van Vicker is not a good actor, Van Vicker : No I am good

Ghanaian actor, Van Vicker in a recent interview with Nigerian Tribune, addressed the issue of actress, Genevieve Nnaji’s remark about him not being a good actor.


See Van Vicker’s response below…

I read the article but I wasn’t bothered about it because that was her opinion, and she is entitled to it. I never responded to it, and I don’t think I will. Nevertheless, I don’t have any ill feelings towards her. Now, whether her opinion has changed or is still the same, it doesn’t make much of a difference to me, because I know I am a fantastic actor and I am doing what I am doing with passion. I am enjoying it and I’m making the best I can of it.

Having said that, if I am given a job to do and she is involved, I would do the job. I won’t say because she said this, I won’t do the job.

If I meet her at a function or on a movie shoot, I’ll ask her; but I won’t do it through the media. Some of these things people write in the papers or on the blogs are not even true; it’s possible they twisted her words. They do it to me all the time, so it’s possible they did that to her. But when I meet her personally, I will ask her if she did say that. And if she did, the conversation will continue, as to why she said it and how she said it”

Emelonye apologises to Genevieve, Omotola over derogatory statement

Days ago, top Nigerian movie producer, Obi Emelonye stated that movie Actresses, Genevieve Nnaji and Omotola Jalade were now jobless as they were way too expensive to be hired for movie roles in the Nollywood industry.

Obi’s statement had generated series of comments and reactions on the social media. Omotola-and-Genevieve However, in a swift reaction to the alleged statement, which was sensationally captioned in major online newspapers, Obi said his conversation with a friend about the two Actresses was “misquoted, misconstrued, taken out of context and blown out of proportions,” affirming further that he  holds the two titans of the movie industry in complete veneration, and had at no point made any statement on the contrary.

Obi stated this in a press statement captioned “Genevieve and Omotola. Mia culpa and obtained by DailyPost.

Read full statement below:

I woke up over the weekend to a barrage of online reports of irreverent and disrespectful headlines about Genevieve and Omotola that were attributed to me.

Without delving into too much details, my private conversations in my house with a friend; talking about what Tom Cruise did when he stopped accepting lousy film projects from the big hollywood studios; has been misquoted, misconstrued, taken out of context and blown out of proportions.

I want to state firstly that I hold these two titans of our industry in complete veneration. (Even the misquotes could not hide that fact). I am also grateful for their unique contributions to the great success of my collaborative projects with them.

Secondly, let it be known that in the time I have known Genevieve and Omotola and in all the dealings that I have had with them, I have never for once said a misplaced word about them, privately or publicly. I have neither betrayed the confidence of their friendship nor tried to gain cheap PR fodder from confidential informationI I may hold.

The initiator of this cruel stunt has coined stupid headlines to attract attention to themselves. I guess they have succeeded. However, I am not going to give them further relevance by naming them to the world. So I have decided take full responsibility for my naivete in being so indiscreet; something I am not known for.

I have already personally apologised to Omotola and Genevieve for my part in this silliness. It is with their permission and without intending to stoke the fire of this publicity stunt, that I am writing to clarify the situation and also to personally and publicly apologise to the millions of fans and supporters loyal to Genevieve and Omotola who have been scandalised by this perversion.

I have had a rewarding professional relationship with these two icons of our time; based on mutual respect and it is my wish to preserve that. I sincerely hope that this wholehearted and public show of contrition would be enough for Omotola and Genevieve (and their fans) to rise above their legitimate anger about this and forgive a friend who values them more than words can say.

We learn everyday. Mia culpa! Mia maxima culpa! God bless you all. Broadcast by TheodoraIbekwepr

While Genevieve Nnaji (33) was also said to have had a liaison with top celebrities, including Kunle Coker and others.

Why Geneveive and Dbanj will break up soon


A couple of days ago, there was a heavy buzz on the social media that Nollywood Actress, Genevieve Nnaji, has been signed on as one of the new Brand Ambassadors of Etisalat, a telecommunications company operating in Nigeria.

Movie producer and critic Charles Novia has however reacted to the endorsement.
He has opined that Geneveive Nnaji might be forced to break up with her boyfriend D’banj – a Glo ensignee.
He said “Amid the congratulatory messages from her fans sent to her on some sites, a few cynical remarks caught my attention. (By the way, congrats Ms Nnaji!)
“Congrats, Genevieve. But wait o…your Boyfriend, D’Banj is a Glo Ambassador and now you are an Etisalat Ambassador. It has been reported that two of you will marry this year after being live-in-lovers and dating steadily for a while now. Since both of you have not denied this piece of news, I assume that it is true.
“With this new deal of yours, does it mean you cannot attend any show sponsored by Globacom in which D’Banj is a headliner despite him being your BF and you being expected to support your beau?
“And same goes for him too in any of your Etisalat sponsored shows? Won’t your relationship be strained by this?’”
“However nosy this comment may seem to some people, there is an underlying fact which many celebrities and of course the general public have  overlooked when it comes to signing brand endorsements. Most of these contracts, if not all, are watertight for the artiste. The dos and don’ts imposed on the artistes could be argued in a civil rights court of law!
“But then, most artistes are quick to sign off the dotted lines basically because of the lump sum being paid to them by the competing brands.
“I am not going to knock anyone in this write-up. I commend the dedicated efforts we all have put over the years to build the entertainment industry to this level. And my opinion is basically, my opinion.

D’banj & Genevieve Nnaji Planning Marriage?


Former lovers D’banj and Genevieve are reportedly back together and more serious than ever. The two who dated on and off for 2 years and broke up in 2011 seem to be getting their relationship vibe back. Genevieve Nnaji has been reported to be currently living in D’banjs lekki house.
We’re happy for the both of them and hopefully we can see a power celeb marriage in 2014. Congrats to the both of them in advance.

Genevieve Nnaji Finally Moves Into D’Banj’s House In Lekki


“Yes it’s true. You know that Dbanj love Genny very much and he didn’t send her away before but she left on her own and when she pleaded with him to come back, he just have to forgive her. He has taken her back and she is very happy!” Those are the words of a close source in D’banj’s camp who confirmed the story  that the two are  back. Genevieve needed a man in her life and to end 2013 without one would have been sad.
Sources are alleging that the love birds are already talking marriage but the source told me that such may not be true. He said D’banj has already told her that their relationship should be free of pressure… I think Genny should just be happy that at least she now has a man and allow things to take their due course in order not to drive D’banj away again, because most single successful guys do not like to be rushed. lol!
Whatever the case may be, I wish them a better 2014 in their love life

I really don’t know why bloggers underrate Yoruba actresses and actors-Badmus

Nollywood actress, Eniola Badmus, has cried out over the perceived sidelining of actors in the Yoruba sector of the movie industry by Nigerian bloggers, while placing emphasis on the English sector.

This act, according to the beefy cross-over actress, is not placing them on the same leverage the English speaking have in terms of publicity and promotion.

She feels the Yoruba actors are unrated by Nigerian bloggers as they only give prominence to the likes of Mercy Johnson, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, Genevieve Nnaji, Ini Edo, Rita Dominic and others.

Eniola Badmus painted a picture of total neglect, believing that the Yoruba actors are inclined to put in more efforts at their jobs since making an indigenous movie is more tasking and they should be accorded more respect and mention in the media.

In her words: “I really don’t know why bloggers underrate Yoruba actresses and actors. I still feel they do more as indigenous movies are more tasking.”

Bloggers, Eniola has said it as it is. Please let’s give actors that make indigenous movies equal prominence.

She was rumoured to have alleged that the lady snatched Ajanaku from her. She was once reported to be in sizzling romance with the Director of Corporate Pictures, Alhaji Abdullahi Razak.

My Love Affair With Kunle Coker ––Genevieve Nnaji

The relationship between actor Kunle Coker and Genevieve Nnaji has been generating a lot of dust since last week when an interview she had with Azuh Arinze sometime a go was published recently.

It seems their love affair did not end well after Genevieve started acting arrogant to Kunle Coker who was said to have thought her a lot about the acting industry. Genevieve has been dodging the issue until now that the controversial interview was eventually published. See the crux of the matter below:

Question: But the story we heard was that Kunle Coker brought you into Nollywood and both of you even dated“Yes, Kunle Coker was actually my boyfriend, but he did not bring me to the industry.

Question: Is it true that you dumped him for Fred Amata?“Fred Amata? I’ve never had anything to do with Fred Amata. I used to call him uncle, so I don’t see the reason why I should date Fred. We are just friends.”

Anyway, Genevieve is now denying the interview. Some say it’s because the name of her ex was mentioned.
