: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!:(
I am not hiding. My name is who I am and more. YOU, if you are who I KNOW you are, I am not surprised. You've always had a chip on your shoulders and beef for Genny for reasons best known to you. Good luck with that and how is that other thing going, you know.. "finding her replacement and that of so many others";)

Sky, see, your class one teacher don die? Akosua being royalty has nothing to do with why she was on Oprah. you are here running that Genny is the first African to be on oprah when that is a black lie Christ will not forgive and I mentioned that Akosua was on, another woman, a victim of FGM was also on, also Ghanaian. they SAT on her couch and Oprah did not say anything sarcastic about 6500 (the truth at last) pay check. why do i bother with you anyway? Oprahs office is already taking hate/love calls for showing her. so you people need to chill.

Ajua, be proud that Genny is hard to get. flex. Tulips is an independent and can decide to walk away. Oprah show has Associate producers who are supposed to take BS and deliver. I can tell you if it were her real producers, they would have walked too. Thank God they did not. Bella Naija my ass. unless you are saying Bella was instrumental in submitting her, because someone submitted her!! keep talking, you will soon run your mouth.

please, let the girl enjoy or we haters will start to dig even further. We have already accepted she is the most popular star in Nigeria.

Seriously, can someone pls point to me where FM went wrong in this post of his to have set off the she or he person below? My goodness...yes, Oprah should come up with a show for this website.


It wasn't the prayers that brought her to Oprah, but her performances on Nigeria Movies. That being said, I wish her the best of Luck and more exposure.

One of these days the next on Oprah will be Ebbe Bassey, and she will be sitting on the Oprah couch wowing the audience. Who knows, Chet Anekwe might be next too.:D
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!
Sola, I was answering FieldMarshall. Why did you not respond to the relevance or irrelevance of FM mentioning their names appearing on the couch? FM called them out first. Neither you nor TM made any comments. I have respect for Chet(saw him in 30 days) and I may not know Ebbe Bassey but I am sure she is doing her thing. If they appear on Oprah and talk up Naija, more power to us.

I was responding to the negative people not everyone. I think you know me :) so you must know I am all for lovers and haters. I simply did not see any reason for FieldMarshalls comments following from the "she no sit down for couch" crew. That's all. My comments are not about Chet and Ebbey. Are they appearing in the roles I described? I am not aware. It is TM and your reaction that is even making me think those are the roles they are appearing in. I thought Chet was doing well. No? My posts are about the negative posters on here and their mindset. I thought that was obvious. If it wasn't, then please consider it clarified.
The post above was FM's first post onto this thread...so what are you trying to say here? I mean, if you made a mistake, admit it and call it a day...my goodness.

Akosua's being royalty may have nothing to do with her being on the Oprah show but I made that comment to make many who aren't aware she is not a thriving story like Genevieve. Akosua had great chances of being on Oprah than Gene ever did. I never thought Gene could make it to Oprah show, for real. Not for a sec miss.

Gene begun from Nigeria unlike the Akosua you speak of. Akosua's father was the *freaking* prime minister of Ghana. She began acting in the US unlike Gene who began from same industry you trash now and then, Nollywood, and got to be on Oprah. How old is Akosua? She is over 40yrs old Angela. Gene is 30yrs. Spot the difference.

Who said Gene is the first African to be on Oprah? Please! you need to speak what you know or hold your tongue.
 
Angela 81, who did Ghana submit? You see, you are so filled with hate you are confusing yourself. You are making it worse. What you are now saying is that, all countries submitted, and Genevieve emerged the best. Either way, she still came out tops. In otherwords there was a competition she did not even know she was taking part in, and won. That alone is an achievement. You say google. LOL. What has google got to do with anything? Did they not google all the others that you claim were submitted? You can't put a bad spin on this. Any way you look at it, it is all good.

Now you have said 6,500 dollars as something negative. Look, even the pepper sellers they showed will tell you that is not how much Genny earns and 400 dollars is also way below the minimum wage in Nigeria but that is an intellectual discussion well beyond your capabilities.

It is not unique for Oprahs office to take calls after guests or segments have been aired on their show. If you like, keep spending your weekly social security cheque on phone calls to Harpo. We are in the priviledged position of being in direct contact and we have no complaints with feedback. What's more, we did not deal with a single associate producer but I won't even give you the credit of naming who we were dealing with. Keep on watching Oprah.

Keep on digging and please go to BN and have the argument there as well. Then to modern ghana, and continue there too. Keep running around aimlessly. As you dey waka na so Genny dey soar. God Bless.

How did genevieve Nnaji get picked on Oprah?

kudos needs to be given to those who helped out. Various bloggers are claiming they were "instrumental" in helping out. Please if you did help out, can you tell us in detail how you did it. You all deserve praise for doing so.

thanks :mrstraetz
