Nollywood actress Genevieve Nnaji, Wednesday, took part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge – an activity involving dumping a bucket of ice water on one’s head or donating $100 to the ALS Association.
Genevieve Nnaji who is now in Cape Town was nominated by Togo and Tottenham Hotspur FC star, Emmanuel Adebayor.

The actress took to her Instagram to share video of her participation. In her turn, Nnaji nominated R &B singing duo Peter and Paul Okoye (Psquare) and their elder brother, Jude Okoye for the challenge.
The Ice Bucket Challenge started as a small idea to raise money for charity, has now gone viral online.
Everyone from David Beckham to the founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, the former U.S. president, George Bush, and the founder of Microsoft Corporation, Bill Gates, have done it.
The ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a form of motor neurone disease) Association ‘created’ the challenge that dares nominated participants to be filmed having a bucket of ice water poured on their heads. The participant also nominates two or three further people to undertake the challenge within 24 hours. Those who forfeit the challenge must donate a larger sum of money to a good cause.
But braving freezing water is not enough, a small donation is also expected and so far #icebucketchallenge has raised more than $22.9 million for charity.
