    Honestly, it amazes me when most of you try to compare one actress with another actress. Someone says "Stephanie Okereke is hot but does not act as good as Rita, Liz or Gennevieve...". To start with, i've never seen any nigerian actress or actor that acts real good because i think most of them act so fake and are still coming up. Let me just say i can give Regina Askia 70% at least! :)

    Well, I'm not a nigerian movie freak cos i'm into American movies! Although the actors and actresses in nigeria are doing pretty good, they really have to learn alot in order to get better. Again, the more most of them try to imitate american actors and actresses the worse they become! They can only be themselves, moreover, If one is a good actor/actress it is already in him/her.. if they are not really good they can only try to improve and improvement requires the actor or actress working on herself.

    So, what is Just_me saying??? The bottom line is that Stephanie Okereke not acting as good as this person or that person does not make any sense, hence they are all thesame! Those people you guys think act better are just becos they are recognized in the movie industry, and they play major role not because they are good actors and actresses. Nigerian actors and actresses have not moved me in any way; i'm yet to see the actor or actress that will captivate, subdue, charm, enchant, and facinate me cos i'm still unshakable! :cool:

    Genevive Nnaji out of it

    I just noticed that genevive Nnaji is getting too agressive in all her movies and i,ve noticed comments of dislike from some fans and always acting too fake in all her movies. I rather watch Omotala movies now than hers. And i have never heard or seen anyone talk about Chiege Alisigwe, she is pretty and a good actress too. U.C

    My sentiments exactly, Genevieve's aura to me has always been that of someone with a bad attitude in real life (I hope I'm wrong, though) and she has a very limited range of acting too. After seeing Omotola in "I belong", my respect for her now knows no bounds. Chiege is pretty good too but I think she needs some polish and confidence to truly stand out in the industry.

    Let me just say, the good actresses and actors are those that can be nice. As in the remain calm throughout the movie and still look like they're faking it. Now thats acting

    chikena times two. Just_me, Rome was not built in one day, american movies did not get to where it is overnight. Nigerian movies will get there one day also. But for now as vince said "just stay with your american movies, PLEASE!"

    @Just_me: I think you're being naive. How could you criticise something you don't watch?. The only way the Nigerian actors and actresses can improve and become like the Americans you've been watching, is to watch what they do and give good critics to help them improve. But since you're not into watching Nigerian movies, I think we have a problem here.:confused:

    Some how along the line (or thread) I want to believe that everyone in this has contributed one ay or the other. And moreso I believe every one in this thread is right in individual senses. As for Just_me, The only statement I don't agree with there was to say R. Askia has 70 % (well maybe when he stopped watching 9ja movis when askia was still bubbling) but I solely agree with hm when he said the nigerian actresses are not yet to be compared. truly all nigerian and american actresses has their own style. As for Gene. I think she is a bomb (she explodes in a area if acting) but over used. (will talk about that later) Not to Vince. You make a lot a sense to me. the guy tha said "rome wasn't built in a day, I also agree with you but still the nigerian actresses feel they are already a completed Rome per say.
    With this I want to say here that The producers should source for more young and talented actors and actresses. I wonder what they are still waiting for. Gene, Omotola ,Liz etc. will turn 75 and still be playing a young student in movies? There a lot of themj out there just as Rome is not built in a day , they should think a movie (good one) can be made in three months.
    Think about it!
    Markame!
    (a shout out to VINCE my man)
