Genevieve Nnaji on Oprah?!

Sola na you sabi. You still get my number sef?:box

NR na wa! Una no go kill person. Wow! Una dey here dey talk una own, the thing to even discuss from there is the wrong exchange rate for how much Genny earns and Oprahs wrong estimation for how much Nigerians earn. That's what we have been discussing. Meanwhile haters are here arguing if it is a big deal. It's a huge deal. If you do not like it, sucks for you.

In response to FieldMarshall, It is of no consequence whether Chet Anekwe or Ebbe Bassey sit on Oprahs lap. Genevieve Ifunanya Nnaji, stayed on her own in Nollywood and Oprah came knocking. I believe Ebbe and Chet are working in America? Abi to some of you bad belle dem suppose big and better pass our stars here because they are working in America? Who Oprah call? Did she look for Chet? Ebbe? No.

She looked for and found Genevieve Nnaji. To represent all of Africa. Genevieve did not have to pound the streets and appear in B rate or C rate plays or shows or blink and you will miss it roles in America to get at least that little bit of recognition that millions of Artistes in the world and in America are craving for. She is Naija through and through and I hope and I know, proud of it too. To God be the Glory.

It's okay to criticise Nollywood. We must. They should be better. This does not mean everything out of America is better than everything in Nollywood. A rubbish show is a rubbish show, no matter where it is filmed. I have seen disgraceful African American/American movies and TV shows, poor actors and actresses and with the resources they have, they should be ashamed.

If you people refuse to recognise your own, others will recognise them for you people. Keep talking. Soon, it will be a movie then haterz will say, she did not star alongside Robert Deniro and it wasn't directed by Tarantino, so it doesn't count.

Oprah has been doing talk shows for 24 years. This is not the first time she is doing profiles or segments as her people call it. Oprah even had shows that were Jerry Springer like till she upgraded. She has done segments with huge global stars where they were not on the couch either. Genevieve was not the only one profiled who was not there. What sensible people would be doing, would be clamouring for her to be on there now that Oprah at least knows of her but No, all the haters want to talk about is seconds and not on couch. Genevieve doesn't have agents soliciting for publicity for her on shows such as Oprah. She got her 45 seconds free of charge. Many in that America, ask Chet and Ebbe, would pay for that.

Big up the positivity and as for the negativity, it is a sad reflection on these haters not on Genevieve because as has been proven and will continue to be proven, she dey kampe!
:shock What in heaven's name is going on here?:confused: First of all my username is "Field Marshal" and not that mess you scribled up there. If you read my comments, you in all your limited reasoning should have understood that, I was all praises for Ms Nnaji. What is wrong with me adding Chet or Ebbe's names to a short list of Nigerian born actors, I would like to see appear on Oprah? Are you now saying that Nigerian Born actors not resident in Nigeria shouldn’t be given exposure if any they deserve? What makes Ms. Nnaji more Nigerian than Mr Anekwe or Ms Bassey? Come to think of it. Are you even sure that your a true blood Nigerian, because this filth oozing out of you reeks alien in nature. By the way, if you’re whom I think you are, I’m seriously disappointed in you!:(

Way to go Genny, these are the people that represent you. She will be unmasked by Friday.

ah, you guys beat me to it.

thought she was already famous on her continent, she does not need Oprah to say that. there were so many other people profiled so you guys hold your horses about mainstream success to Nigerian movies because of 45sec. the woman who sells her hair in India was also on oprah. she is still selling hair.
being profiled on oprah does not guarantee anything. be realistic. book-club is different.
if the movies she's in were any better it would have been encouraging. i think this is a cue for her to start working on better projects.
...At least its a good start...... a stepping stone. I have numerous folks from work asking me about her now...!

AJ, you gotta slow down here. Most of the comments I read here are positives, so I'm not sure what's responsible for your long post above. You can't expect everyone to like Nnaji and you of all people should know that. And you're not going to shut people up just because they don't like you. That's not how the world rolls. Anyone looking for praise and fame without the attendant stone throwing is dreaming. Even Obama has detractors, for no reason. Finally, I don't see what the need is for calling out Chet Anekwe and Ebbe Bassey, just in case you don't know, who are two of Nnaji's greatest supporters and promoters here in America. You don't know them. I do. Why are you calling them out? Let's calm down and take this thing one step at a time. At some point, we end up creating additional bad blood for those we're trying to market.
My sentiments exactly.

Angela81, everyday you reveal that you actually are a nobody and know no one and nothing. Considering that I was frontline of the interaction with Oprah's producers alongside other members of the team which also includes the Debra you like to insult, it is the funniest thing to read the results of your so called research.

You only need to go to Bella Naija and ask, to discover the falseness of your current post. A little more research and you will even find out the lengths the show went to, to get a hold of Genevieve. A quote from Oprahs supervising producers to Genevieve is "We may have to attach a tracking device to you, to get a hold of you".

So, please, enough already. Focus on making a better life for yourself.

at least I am not basking in the glory of someone who has made something out of her life!!! keep on gratifying yourself with that school of thought. it keeps your engines running.

Akosua Busia was on Oprah, a good number of Africans have SAT on her couch. what is all this excitement?

and you are a bloody liar. I can tell you exactly who made that comment to Genny.

on the other hand, was it not for the same hard to reach reasons that some people chose not to work with her?

wait oh, Angela, did you not decide not to comment again?

its truly buzz out now.

I am good at setting fires. now put it out!!

How is Bella Naija a true source of information:confused: Are they now the new snopes.com :laugh: America is the land of freedom of information and how and why Genny can be easily found by calling the Oprah show.

Since you don open ya mouth why not tell us the length Oprah's show went to, to get hold of her. Very interesting that you stated the above quote because this was the primary issue Genny had with Tulips. Take the above quote as a sound alarm to una communication skills.

TM, I hope not to have to explain to you again. I said I was not referring to them as the street pounders. YOU have now called them out as such because of your reaction to my posts. Did you note the separate paragraphs? I was speaking in general. Plus, I don't expect people to like Genevieve(she is not MY star. She is A star). People like who they like. That is the problem with NR. People don't want to say who they know because this is the sort of response they get to posts. My star? Genny is no longer YOUR star? This is why I did not want to call out Ebbe. As a matter of fact, Ebbe Bassey is my friend. A very good one in fact. I just did not want to say so, just because of stuff like this.
Anyone who is finding it very difficult to see anything is not my problem. I speak for myself.
I was not a little hasty. I stand by my response. Just admit that you misunderstand and be quiet :)

The fact is FM could have said, good on NNaji. Hopefully Ebbe and Chet will appear on Oprah next, obviously FM being a supporter of both. With all that was posted previously, the purpose of the sitting on the couch one means what? I found it unnecessary and almost snide. I responded accordingly. If you didn't, fair enough but please do not legislate to me how I should feel or respond to any post. We can all agree to disagree.
This is like a white racist claiming that his/her best friend is black! Abeg, crawl back into ya hole! I hope she can read this crap you wrote about her and keep the hell away from you!:devil
 
Easy with the name calling.
AJ misunderstood FM's post and made the wrong reaction.
Allegra is more often than not joking, except when the situation involves Angela.

Just out of curiosity, why should Genny get rid of the people she's working with if those people are getting the job done and she's successful?
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Oh and btw, I'm not saying these peeps are working with Genny. Just pointing out the facts.

Anything you like, you say. Madam NTB. You have been insulting Gennys management since 2006. When she had oh, when she did not have. You have been insulting Gennys management for reasons best known to you and yours. The reality is, while you have gone about spreading your propaganda, Genny and her team have been doing great and moving on to bigger and better things. Genevieve is more than happy with her current team and the results of understanding, getting along and having the same goals as your team is success. Reaching avenues and areas previously unattained by Geneveive. Let the record, since 2006 reflect and bear witness and evidence to this simple fact. The subject of this thread is evidence of that and God willing just a stepping stone. God Bless you. Carry on investigating. Sola has told you who I am. You can still research.

LOL...If they truly went to that length, they could have easily invited her to the show too like they did for the other guests....that small clip of Gen from Nollywood and what Oprah said about Africa alone, should tell us something...but some African's as usual, will settle for anything..... no matter how small. It was nice to see Gen on Oprah...but at the end of the show, I honestly felt insulted as an African.

Akosua is royalty. She also starred in the movie The color purple alongside Oprah way back. Whats the big deal of her being on Oprah show? She had met Oprah before her show even begun and blossomed.

Hater just go to the hides.
