    Could we say that after years of being at the receiving end of Directing, and probably the actors seeing the final products [movies], feel they could do better, hence their latest rush into becoming 'Directors' as well?

    Would an actor [who has been in the industry for years] be a better Director, say ....than someone who just wakes up and starts Directing?

    Or should they simply stay within acting and 'Executive Producer' and leave the Directing to more qualified people?

    Jack and Jane of all Trades? Given that so many people these days are Multi-Talented, is it not OK for them to pop out any talent anytime they need to? After all, everyone is seeking for a better life/quid.

    TRUE or FALSE?

    I'm very sorry at how this thread turned. This thread was meant to offer ideas on who Genny should not be working with. suddenly it becomes a thread about Leila Djansi and Genevieve Nnaji. DS. who told you that those two women are competing? competing in what? They have both moved on to achieve what ever they want to achieve. I am smug because my vote of confidence in Leila did not fail, Genny fans are also happy she has also achieved international recognition. fair and square if you ask me. Why certain people are getting defensive and dragging Ms Djansi into this thread leaves me wondering, why are you still holding a torch? I know we were hoping she will fail, no one will hear of her again but God does not work that way. their fight is not what this thread was about at all. turning it into that shows one thing, envy and bitterness.

    It is unfortunate its decided to turn it into a war of words, curses, and petty bickering. its like when you see people fighting over a dead body. the man is dead and gone, una dey hia dey fight. anyway. London is calling, flight is leaving catch you all on another fight! I'll be in ROM.

    You managed to turn this thread into what it is because YOU are the one who tied Leila Djansi into this thread which turned it negative. You are a POISON on this thread, you are vitriolic, divisive and a trouble making wart on this site. Angela81 meant no harm with her suggestion but you had to find away to turn it all around, abi? Because controversy here is akin to what blood is to a vampire for you. You NEVER fail to show up with the Tulip controversy ANYTIME Leila's name is mentioned, you no dey tire? I am yet to see an interview with Leila mentioning that project or Genevieve's name at all since the initial time the entire thing blew up BUT YOU keep talking about it, why is it paining you so much that you can't seem to get off it? Why? It's been OVER two movies OVER for Leila but you keep talking about it like a bitter woman whose husband has left her for a younger woman. Abeg, you find some other thing to sink your teeth into and stop with pushing old gist around. You really earned your voltron check.

    My people, see me see trobul o. See as trobul sleep jeje, nyanga dey go pull im tail.

    BB, let me repeat myself. THIS WHOLE SHINDIG IS NOT ABOUT ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! aaaiight?

    1. Its all between dkelechi and Angela81,........because Angela is trying to save her bread & butter.
    2. Notice how everybody has agreed that Genny has moved on but djansi & her mouthpiece angela has not?
    3. Notice how quiet I got throughout most of this thread? That's because it wasn't about me.
    4. Notice how nobody used the toxic word "Tulip" on this Thread until YOU did? Maybe you are the trouble maker.

    You really need to start getting enough rest, BB. ...otherwise, you'll continue talk crazy like this,.... embarrassing your fellow Naijarulers like that,.....and that ain't cool.


    Other than that,......so,...my crazy friend,....did you have a nice long weekend?.....like I did?

    talked to a few people offline who have seen some of desmond's directorial efforts and they haven't been impressed. (did he not direct Uyai though? i liked that movie)
    anyway, it appears that this is a Tchidi Chikere case. not all directors can be good actors and not all good actors can be great directors. Desmond and Tchidi should just jejely switch places and get back to their respective positions and do what they do best - Desmond - act; Tchidi -direct and write one heckova story.

    I am inclined to agree with Angela81, but no judgements until I am able to watch this movie and see if he managed to pull something out of nnaji that other directors haven't been able to lately.

    Dsampler, I have NEVER heard, Ms. Djansi mention Genny....EVER. I've heard YOU do it everytime she's mentioned. Either directly, or with a not so sly, "work with the best", "call you know who, and apologize". You do it. If Angela81 is Ms. Djansi's mouthpiece as you believe, then you are Genny's...I'm hoping that isn't the case, because I'm actually still a Genny fan, in spite of your polarizing and negative efforts to get people to abandon all other artists they admire, and cleave to Genny alone. I want to see Genny in some good work, I truly do. She can act as the refined executive with the posh job, with both eyes closed and completely shackled. She's bored with those roles, It's so obvious in her delivery. You can hear and see it. Am I more a fan of pre-ban Genny??...abso-freakin-lutely. I won't tell you that you killed it, if you did not. If that makes me a "hater" in your world, I'm sure you can search on this blog for suggestions on where you can go with that. It isn't important to me that Genny works with Leila or vice-versa. There's lots of talent in Africa. I wouldn't expect one person to be the "only" capable artist, who can write from the heart. This was my main grouse with dkelechi when he/she was claiming the "best" title for the director of Ije.

    The movie you're talking about is "Memories of the Heart".
    The movie sucked so bad. I was so surprised that Ramsey and Nse even agreed to be a part of this.

    How can you blame me when I purposely stayed out of this Thread for a long time? I barely posted anything inside this thread o. I have nothing to do with whatever Angela decides to spew o, abeg, do me jeje o.


    Barbs, you really don't think Angela should be blamed for this? Did you ever noticed how all of her Threads has something to do with her boss' name? Go back & check all of her posts, you will see. She's very slick like that.


    Surprise, surprise.

    Dsampler, the bolded can be said about YOU!!!!!...How many times, is someone being complimented, and like clockwork, you throw in, a not so slick, and veeery negative comment about the person. You always buttress it by throwing Genny's name in it. That's your MO. At least be honest enough to own it.

    When Angela81 first joined the site, she made it known that she wasn't going to be a Genny lover. Many NR members, came to Genny's defense, when they did not agree with her commentary in the Tulips thread. By all outward appearances, Leila and Genny have since moved on. You obviously don't want to. So, thinking like you do, should I imagine, that you are an employee of Genny's because 1) All your threads revolve around Genny 2) You are speaking on her behalf, regarding Leila Djansi?.....Again, I'm using your argument, to show how truly ridiculous you sound.

    Drown, VERMIN! I will continue to knock you down with each nasty comment. You are lower than a COCKROACH! You think say na husband dey worry me, I LAUGH in Swahili! How mature of you! The best response you have when you know you've been busted is a profanity laced sentence. I might not have a husband according to you but it's better than what you've got, a fantasy life with someone who doesn't know you exist and who wouldn't want to know you if they did unfortunately cross your cretin path!
