The Phenomenal Genevieve Nnaji

Genevieve Nnaji is in my opinion the “Kimberly Elise of Africa”. She’s most notable for her roles in “Last Party“, and “Ljele“. She’s a talented actress that has the ability to captivate her audience with a powerful and dramatic performance in any role she takes on, and her work ethic is one to be admired. Hailing from West Africa, Genevieve has risen from a child star to becoming one of the best paid and most successful actresses in Nollywood.

Nnaji grew up in Lagos, Nigeria and is the fourth of eight children. She made her first television appearance in the soap opera “Ripples” at the young age of 8. While attending the University of Lagos, Genevieve auditioned for several movie roles. In 1998, she landed a role in the movie “Most Wanted”, since then, Nnaji has starred in over 80 Nollywood movies. Genevieve has won several awards including the African Movie Academy Award for Best Actress in a leading role in 2005.

Aside from being an actress, Nnaji has endorsed many products and has appeared in a variety of commercials. In 2004, she signed a recording contract and later released her debut album titled “One Logologo Line”. Her résumé was further extended when Nnaji launched her clothing line called “St. Genevieve” in 2008, of which all the proceeds goes to charity.

Genevieve continues to shine in her homeland and internationally over the years. Her talents are unlimited and I’m ever anticipating what she’ll take on next. Nnaji is the epitome of who a hard-working woman is. Her life personifies the saying “All things are possible if you will only believe.” These words describe her: determined, focused, humble, and creative. The best years of her career are still ahead.
