August 22, 2013 – Genevieve Nnaji Tops 2013 Africa’s Most Powerful Actresses List

Nigerian actress Genevieve Nnaji is gradually following the footstep of her colleague Omotola Jalade who was listed among Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world few months back.

Genevieve Nnaji was featured among the superstars in the latest edition of Elle Magazine that was published yesterday August 21st, 2012.

Here is what the popular celebrity magazine wrote about Genevieve Nnaji’s achievement:

One of the most powerful actresses working in Africa, Nnaji began her career at age eight, and has been constantly working in commercials and movies ever since. She’s credited with putting Nollywood, Nigeria’s Hollywood, on the map. In 2005 she was awarded Best Actress at the inaugural African Movie Academy Awards (AMAA), and used her fame to launch her clothing line, St. Genevieve, in 2008 with the proceeds from sales supporting orphanages. And she has the Oprah seal of approval—in 2009 Nnaji was profiled on an episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show , with the host referring to her as one of the most popular people around the world and the “Julia Roberts of Africa.’

Ex-Miss world and Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai, pop star Anahi and many others were also featured on the list.

Popularly called Julia Roberts of Africa, Genny is among the most talented actresses in Africa today.

    The sooner some of you begin to focus on the truth the better it will be for you , the actress is living her life , do u tynk marriage is smtyn u gt at a snap ??? Pls don’t mix up er career n re personal life during your stupid critics , when she was suffering whr were u all you stupid critics ????? … Well the editor of this work is even dull saying Genevive is taking omotola’s step its wrong because she also has had better moment , if u r writing abt Genevive so b it don’t include omotola vice – versa , as for the recognition U truly deserve it cox u worked for it ride on my dear … God ll cont. To bless ur hustle …..
