Wow!!
Ok, its Official! Genevieve has set a bar that NO Nigerian Actor has ever attained! Maybe, its because the technical avenues are here now...or call it luck, whatever it is, this girl is amazing!

before this thread diverts into haters and hatorades, I totally believe in giving honor to whom honor is due, and it is VERY DUE to Ms. Nnaji.

Generation-Genevieve ...very official right now! Nigerians and Nollywood can never forget this gal.



Nigerian actress Genevieve Nnaji has been dubbed the Julia Roberts of Africa by millions of fans on the continent and now she's trying to make a name for herself in the west.

Genevieve Nnaji is your Connector of the Day.

The 31-year-old Nigerian born Nnaji is the fourth of eight children and had the opportunity to attend the University of Lagos where she acted in a number of Nollywood productions.

Nigeria has one of the world's biggest film industries and produces more even more movies each year than the United States.

The industry outputs more than 200 movies each month and is estimated to be worth more than $250 million.

Nnaji started acting at the age of eight and had her first stint in the spotlight in the television soap opera "Ripples."

One of her first big Nollywood films was the movie "Most Wanted" and the rest is history. Nnaji went on to star in a number of highly successful movies and is generally considered to be one of the best paid actresses in Africa.

Here's your chance to ask one of the biggest stars in Africa your questions.

Do you want to know what it is like working in the Nollywood film industry? Interested to know what films or actors she admires in Hollywood?

Please leave your questions for Nnaji below and be sure to include where you're writing from.

pls before someone bites my ear of; May I take permission to state my opinion, thank u. I dont really know wat they hype about genevive is or am I missing something, i used to enjoy her old movies and then she got all uptight and too serious on screen, there are better actresses and actors that have been there and still way better than her but I just think ppl personally like Genevive but her acting these days are stiff and boring to watch. Though am not a fan of neither, i really enjoy watching ini edo to Genevive, i just think she is celebrated mostly on personal likes by fans.

I'll answer your question very simply.

Genevieve has star quality that most of these others bitches don't. It doesn't have a thing to do with acting ability... The girl is a star. And that's what matters.

(And I'm not even a Genny fan at all... But one must give credit where it is due.)

no Sola am not speaking of Fan on cnn, but she is very popular solely because she has a strong fan base, and that is why she is voted in all these magazine as the most famous nigerian actress and its only a matter time before she will be sought after for interviews. Personally i dont think her popularity is as a result of her acting. And pls before grown men start calling other actress bitches and watnot. I am just stating my personal opinion, u dont have to agree with it and u wont shove ur opinion down my throat either and any term that u might refer to me as such as been a hater or wateva that suits u, u can simply save yourself the energy and keep it moving, So we can all agree to disagree in this issue because its quite obvious that 9ja rules have some ego centric bullies here, constantly talking down on other ppl because they dont share their opinion, insulting and been uterly disrespectful because they refuse to be bullied.

Desilva, your opinion is very valid. Some people may agree and believe there are better actresses. However, star quality has little to do with acting ability. The thing is Genny, has both. Acting ability and "star" quality. That's why she is so popular.

I know a lot of VERY good actors that do not have that "it" that people see and like. So while they may give amazing performances, they will not be as popular or sought after as those that do. Now star quality and poor acting skills can only take you so far. But with Genny it's different. Genny has both in abundance!! Acting ability AND star quality! That is the reason her fan base is large.

See me see trouble o.

You asked a question. I answered it very directly... And all of a sudden, I am an egocentric bully shoving my opinion down your throat?

What part of that game is THAT?

I said Genny gets the attention because she has star quality... You say you reject that answer.

So what do you want me to say? Her popularity is based on the very powerful juju she did in her village?

Sure... Let's go with that explanation...
