If you are an avid follower of Nollywood movies, you must have noticed that Genevieve Nnaji has been absent from the movie screens for some time. Her last movie was Half Of A Yellow Sun, which came out in April and saw her play a minor role. Before then she appeared in lead roles in Ije and Tango With Me, both in 2012. The actress says the reason for her absence on Nollywood screens is a lack of quality scripts.
In a recent interview with Punch, she said
I guess I haven’t found the right script yet. Creativity and depth are the qualities that I look out for in a script. In the beginning, the movie industry emphasized quantity but things are changing and there is an improvement in trend. I am among the people who advocate for the improvement of the industry. So said, I am constantly watching out for the kind of stories I take part in. I am in support of movies that show a great deal of professionalism and creativity. Having practiced my art in international and professionally produced stories like ‘Ije’; ‘Mirror boy;’ and ‘Tango with me’, I don’t think I can return to the blandness and mediocrity that characterized Nollywood in the past.
Speaking on her personal style and what determines her red carpet looks, she said
