Nollywood writer/director Genevieve Nnaji (LIONHEART) discusses the endless tales Nigerians and Africans have to tell, and why she told the story.

The directorial debut of one of Africa’s biggest screen stars, Lionheart shows Nigeria’s Genevieve Nnaji taking full creative control of the kind of empowering story that endeared her to Nollywood audiences all over the world. The director and co-writer also stars in the film as Adaeze, a savvy businesswoman who is itching to take over the reins of her father’s transport enterprise. Blinded by sexism, Dad favours his son for the top job, forcing Adaeze to work even harder to realize her ambition without seeming to go against her father’s wishes; but when she discovers that the family company has a faulty financial foundation, she is finally compelled to take the driver’s seat. Fresh from its world premiere at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, Nnaji’s vibrant and engaging drama evokes both King Lear and 9 to 5.

    • what does it have to do with her goals and accomplishments..where is the father of her kid ..she went through thick and thin and came out strong or u want a gold digger to scatter her with another baby daddy drama.no she is wiser now…let God give her the right man at the appointed time.let me know when oprah winfreys wedding happens.

  1. GETTING MARRIED DOES NOT MEAN YOU ARE A COMPLETE WOMAN AND IT IS NOT AN ACHIEVEMENT , THE ONLY ACHIEVEMENT IS WHAT YOU ARE YOURSELF .

    I WOULD ADVISE YOU TO LIVE YOUR LIFE YOUR WAY, BECAUSE AS SOON AS YOU MOVE IN AN ASSHOLE ,

    THEY WOULD BE JEALOUS OF YOU AND TAKE EVERYTHING AWAY FROM YOU AND TURN YOU INTO ZOMBIE.

    PLEASE DO NOT GIVE YOUR FREEDOM AWAY, YOU ARE AN INDEPENDENCE WOMAN.

  2. @Patoya, she does not have to marry to become a complete woman. She better stay single and happy than to fall into a wrong hand and be miserable. Let her take her time until she feels she has found a man she is compatible with. If she were to rush into marriage she would have married either Atiku or Useni or Debanj. etc.

  3. Happy for her recent successes. Since the movie Ije, I must say that I’ve been interested in movies starring her. It’s usually that kind of ‘this movie may just be really good’ feeling. There’s freedom of expression anyway, but it’s laughable other commentators even chose to give a reply to the immature first comment.
