Let us refresh our memories,

Genevieve Nnaji Started out her acting career at age 9. She became a single mum at the age of 17, two years later launched her Nollywood career with the movie “Most wanted” and ever since its been over 50 hit movies, one endorsement deal after another, one award after another. She still bagged a degree in creative arts from University of Lagos (or didn’t she? but does it matter anymore?) and She has gone on to have a blissful career after what would have seemed like the end of the future for her.

She went as far as getting featured on the Oprah Winfrey show in 2009 in an episode titled “Meet the Most Famous People In the World” along side the likes of Ashwariya Rai. Genevieve afterwards was featured on CNN too. Her clothing line launched in 2008 and later relaunched it in 2014. She has also been honored by the the Federal Government with Member of the Order of Federal republic of Nigeria and by her Hometown- Mbaise; a chieftancy title.

Some lessons to be learnt from Ms. Nnaji’s journey;
  • I am very certain she has great role models and an awesome support system and a strong sense of self belief.
  • “What might seem like a dirty slate, provides the best background to project your beautiful life upon”.
  • What ever seems like an ugly start can have a favorable ending, if you use your Disadvantage to your Advantage.
  • See Don’t rule out anyone just yet, Infact not now, not ever.

Oh! I remember her music career attempt that didn’t go down well with many of us, yet she did not get backlash like some people got. She has definitely had her fair share of bad press coverage but She is so mature in dealing with issues of her life that you cannot afford to love her less.

If you ask me I would say, she has seen the Good, Bad and the Ugly. Yet she manages to still hold her own. She has managed to win the hearts of many, even those who can’t help the fact that they can’t help but love her. Just when you think she has given you enough reasons to love her, she shows you another side. Its been over a decade now and we can’t get enough of her already. Everything she wears looks like its worth a billion dollar. She resurfaces with a new feather to her cap and then we start to fall in love all over again. She should start her own reality show already. Do you even think she will?
