Errrmmmmm....I dare to agree with you on the charity thing here!

WHAT HAS GENEVIEVE NNAJI DONE FOR THE POOR AND HELPLESS IN NIGERIA?

The gal seems NOT to have any heart for the less privileged! She is all about succeeding and self.

She has money and fame and yet, she is NOT using it for others? hasn't she heard that God blesses people to be a blessing to others?

It is a DAMN FREAKIMNG SHAME that she could NOT list one charity she works with or even one single foundation she is sponsoring!

She lost me there!! And she mentions Angelina Jolie!! Are you kidding me??? What aspect of Angie Jolie as a PHILANTHROPIST does she NOT see? Or that Angie adopts kids and takes care of them?! Julie Roberts? Seriously?

Genny Nnaji, you TOTALLY effed up on CNN by showing you do no charity! I am truly disappointed! Selfishness is not a good thing!
....................em,.......ssergit my dearie, just like somebody asked earlier, why don't you just list all the charities that you have contributed to or are sponsoring. Do that and this whole matter will be ended right away. We'll be waiting to read your big list. Thanks a lot in advance dearie.

iru rubbish wo lo n so? How can you unequivocally state that no one made her who she is? Did you consult with the faculty of thought before penning that down? Are you seriously saying other actors who haven't enjoyed measurable exposure or fame as her didn't do so because of the lack of talent?

Listen, you and many other movie patrons made her because you liked her so much so as to buy her movies. Without the VCD's translating into hard cash, marketers wouldn't touch her with a long pole and producers wouldn't be chasing her.

Iru katikati wo niyen.

Thank you. God Bless you!
Someone at least sees my point here!

Imagine saying Genenvieve should NOT and MUST not give to charity! Imagine!
And she wants to come to Hollywood!
She better start working in a charity right now. Shuo.
Even OmoT, Ini Edo and Mercy Johnson have more sense than her in that regard, as they are doing charity already and that endears more people to them.
REALLY? actors should not give back? wow. thats a new one. I guess when Ed Zwick got accused for making blood diamond and not giving back to the armless people he used and to the community he capitalized on to make millions was no big deal then.

you know on the SAG actors contract, there is a part where it asks how much the production should give to charity from his fee?

are you saying people who watch genny on your screen ald LOVE her and worship her even here on NR should not hope she would at least be an advocate for them?

have you ever been stopped by the police at home with a movie star in your car? they let you pass.

you are in the public eye for so many reasons. That is why the UN uses celebrities for their campaigns. people listen to them. they are advocates.

and if a celebrity is doing a charity, we need to know because 1. it makes you comfortable to also give knowing it is not a a scam. 2. it gingers you to also give.

God blesses us so we can be a blessing to others!

this is where SDA and Omotola shine. I guess Omotola should have been the one on CNN.

You claimed once to be "close" or to know Gene very well and even to be a member of her website..I wonder then how comes that you have never heard about any charity work or the orphanage that she is endorsing.

You might not be who you claim to be afterall no ? *rhetoric question*
Yes, I know her, and I wrongly assumed she is doing something already. Maybe that is why I am shocked. I assumed she has and no, never asked her about it. I love her to pieces, but I am very very disappointed by her no-charity position. And I don't care who you are, if you do wrong, I will tell you. And she will hear this from me personally in a minute.

Sorry Darling, NEVER gonna happen. But when I get to BBC and CNN, trust me, I will not forget to list them. the interviewer would beg me to stop. :roll

And saying it again, I love Genny. I DO NOT HATE her, i admire her.
but that doesn't mean I cannot voice my opinion of her when I think she goofed and she learns from this. It is die-hard fanatics like you who never tell their adored stars the truth that keep them on one spot, or making same errors time and time again.

With all that is said all over the internet now, do I think Genny would make a better impression in her next International Interview? YES. But she needs to hear where she needs to improve or change. C'est la vie!

I think we are arguing where both sides have valid points.

- Should Genny give to charity or have some cause she champions? Yes. She should do this. It says something about her and it could do a lot of good. To whom much is given, much is expected.

- It is "mandatory" for her to give to a charity or have some cause she champions? No. It is not mandatory. This is a choice, just like every other thing in life.

- Should she disclose the charities she gives to? Maybe... This is a matter of her choice. Some people like to give quietly without fanfare or media. They see it more seriously than a photo opt, or a way to improve their image. It is something personal to them. On the other hand, shedding light to their favorite cause could lead others to follow. It would bring awareness to an issue she finds dear, thus exposing it to her millions of fans, who could also take up the cause.. There are pros and cons to this, and it is her choice to decide.

The key point here is that it is simply NOT mandatory in a legal sense. It might be different from a societal and moral standpoint, where people expect the more affluent and successful to assist those less fortunate....

Well...means you don't know her.

Thanks for the clarification :)

Sidney, have we now reached the conclusion that Genny does not give to charities?

I'd rather submit to you & others that she definitely does. And just because there is no list somewhere does not change that fact. She was rushing thru her answers & a bit nervous around the time the question about charities was asked of her.
Have we all forgotten how flustered she looked in the video that was shot immediately following the interview? She looked like somebody that just went thru a huge job interview & now waiting & hoping for a good result. Nobody is denying that.
My point is, she's only human & she's still learning the international scene. So, let's all give her a bit of a break please.
 
Actress Genevieve Nnaji was a guest on CNN's Connect The World few weeks back. The show will finally be airing tomorrow(Tuesday) evening. For those who can't wait, find below transcripts of the show.

Transcript: Genevieve Nnaji on CNN's Connect The World

(14: 29:17) MF: But you support orphanages, don’t you?

(14:29:20) GN: Yes, I do
.


(14:29:22) MF: And that’s because – I presume – you feel for these young kids that don’t have families and you can give something that can help.

(14:29:28) GN: Definitely. I’m very passionate about you know, orphans because – for me – there are so many other diseases out there but you see a lot of people don’t even have the experience of what love is about and these kids don’t even have that. So for me, times like Christmas, you know you just want to do something and actually buy them presents and I just think they are too young and too innocent and we need to actually show them that people out there do love them. So I do my bit.

(14:29:55) MF: Assan Cyril wonders where you get your motivation when so much of the country is in poverty, which you’ve just referred to I guess – lots of orphanages aren’t there?

(14:30:04) GN: Yes. Well, country being in poverty. Well then our job is to put a smile on people’s faces. You know, we do the bits we can and we’re pretty generous when we come across people as well. And then we do a lot of talking to people that we feel can help. You know like,..

No. I have not come to any conclusions at all... If I assumed that she didn't give to charity, then why would I have mentioned the 3rd point about her keeping her charity giving private?

I wonder what you guys are hoping to happen, a press conference with her naming all the charities she supports, LOL. The internet gives people power to write sha....Carry on. I know Genevieve gives to charity, whatever you guys are waiting for to convince you otherwise I hope you find it. But No matter how much people scream it, I stand by my statement: No one made Genevieve who she is, she did that by herself. I never said the actors that did not have a huge fan base were not talented, I said they were lacking something that she has. I also said there are actors more talented than her and I did not name anyone.
