Genevieve Nnaji Tells Us Why She Hasn’t Been In Movies Lately


One of Nollywood’s best actresses ever — Genevieve Nnaji has been of the movie scene for a while and nobody really knew why.

In a new interview, she explains why she hasn’t been featuring in new movies these days.

The mother of one who is blessed with a beautiful daughter told Punch: –

“I guess I haven’t found the right script yet. Creativity and depth are the qualities that I look out for in a script. In the beginning, the movie industry emphasized quantity but things are changing and there is an improvement in trend. I am among the people who advocate for the improvement of the industry. So said, I am constantly watching out for the kind of stories I take part in.

“I am in support of movies that show a great deal of professionalism and creativity. Having practised my art in international and professionally produced stories like ‘Ije’; ‘Mirror boy;’ and ‘Tango with me’, I don’t think I can return to the blandness and mediocrity that characterised Nollywood in the past. I have respected myself as an artiste. I think the success stems from the fact that I have given acting my all.” she said
