Nollywood Actor Disgraces Genevieve

Genevieve Nnaji, in an interview with Punch over the weekend explains the reason why she’s been scarce in Nollywood movies for a while now , she said;

“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 emphasised 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 practiced my art in international & professionally produced stories like ‘Ije’; ‘Mirror boy;’ and ‘Tango with me’, I don’t think I can return to the blandness and mediocrity that characterized Nollywood in the past.”

Well, one Nollywood movie director wasn’t happy about Genevieve’s description of their industry. In a statement released today, Mac Collins Chidebe (pictured right) said Genevieve should come and improve Nollywood instead of blasting the industry that brought her fame and fortune. What he said after the cut…
“Genevieve has just insulted the industry that made her who she is today and what effort has she made to help improve Nollywood? Those days in Enugu when Genevieve was growing in Nollywood, our movies were not rubbish; she has grown now, made money, fame, popularity e.t.c, how much has she invested in this Industry that made her? All the while she was busy waiting for Titanic scripts, Nollywood was trying their best to keep the flag flying waiting for her to come back and take the industry to the next level. Artistes should stop biting the fingers that fed them. We are watching and waiting for them to bring down heaven. We made them stars; we are waiting for them to come back and take the industry to the next level. Instead of blasting Nollywood, come and improve Nollywood.” Chidebe said



  1. Nollywood made her…what has she done for nollywood? Oh! So now nollywood is low to her standard?…anyways,who ever she is now or all she can ever be,she should know that nollywood gave her a name and took her out to the so called “international” movie industries….

  2. Both Genny $ d industry have done a lot to each other but we should no dat we all have to be taking to greater level,dat is y a child crow den stand after which he walk So it same with life hello

  3. I wonder why people do say the public made artist or actors and actresses, wait, who worked had into professionalism to attain his or her status, is it the public or the industry, who supported then, who said an Amen to their prayers and granted them their heart desires. God!!, god made them, not the industry not the public, it is high time Nigerians start believing that your destiny is in your individual hands…. Genevieve is right, to change the industry u’ve to be the change the world awaits. It all starts from you. The question people should ask themselves is, is it the public that made Gave them the talent and help them in developing or God and themselves…

  4. If anyone make nonses to my sister he or she ll go down.will she die in the industry or she is the only one who left the industry.pls pls pls live I reserve more coments thanks.

  5. Yes Jenn is nice lady, but what de guy said is pure truth, if she feels that Nollywood is not improving, then let her do something to improve it, after roll she has gone far and wide, let her come up with new ideas to add-up.

  6. What did she said that she desave Disgrace jost bcs she said she haven’t found the right script yet what is the problem by sayin that? Creativity and depth are the quality she luk and she is right as big as Genevieve she hv 2 luk all this quality b4 she accept, evendor Nollywood gv her evrythin but now is not b4, U directo u should go and produce a fim that hv all the quality she mention if u are not happy with her but dont disgrace her like that.
