Funmi Iyanda Yes + Influential.
Abike Dabiri. Yes + Influential
Genevieve and Omotola ????? what and who exactly have they influenced besides working for their money and playing their role as celebrated actresses.
When you say Influential it means someone or something who's impacted the life of an individual. Funmi Iyanda, Abike Dabiri, and a few others I'll say has definitely impacted humanity with their selfless act of inate will without recourse.

As for Genevieve et-all[Dont get me wrong I'm a big Gene fan] but i dont see how and where she's impacted anyone save for doing her """overly""" celebrated job in the name of Fame . SELAH!!!

BLAQUE PEARL said...

Shame on you Linda. Na only Genny wey dey do things for naija? shame. There are other actors who are actually touching lives and making impact. or are you hoping one day that she becomes your lesbian partner?

ItsAllAboutYou! said...

Funmi Iyanda yes!!!!

Genevieve and Omotola a "no no", It is true they are celebrities but they are definately not influencial. Aside from acting, gracing the front cover of magazines, getting advert deals and appearing on the red carpet, I cannot remember them for anything they have done to influence their communities.

Funmi Iyanda is a force that cannot be ignored any day, she's been able to make a difference in so many lives.

Linda without you telling me whom to vote for,i have already voted Genevieve Nnaji, she commands respect in Nollywood. I'll vote for her anytime any day

CHRIS said...

Oh please...people this not about you or your bad belle for these girls. This is not even about who has put money in people's pockets or preached the gospel or awakened the dead. This is simply about people who have had an influence in the minds and lives of people especially the young ones and youths. Before any of these women (especially Genevieve) no one wanted to be a professional actress. But all that has changed. I think Genevieve brought a good amount of dignity, class and panache to the industry and as our own AND A FELLOW WOMAN, we should be proud and support what is good. If you have any other actress in mind that fits the profile then by all means vote for the person, but don't just sit there and insinuate that actors and actresses do not qualify to be in the list just because they are not making speeches daily about the economy. Everyone has a role to play in the society and I believe the movie industry has done a good job of portraying a humane side to Nigeria and Nigerians, making foreigners want to take a closer look. DON'T YOU AGREE?

Please vote for Nonhle THEMA. She has infuenced thousands of Africans (on Twitter). The result...lowered IQs and distaste for fame. Especially (un)known people like Thema.

Damilola george said...

helen said...

Linda no need to tell me cos i know its our one nd only Genny4sure...she is well packaged as in everything about her is portable!

Anonymous said...

i really dont understand the hype about genevieve,as far as am concerned she is a glorified prostitute who has done nothing to impact in the lives of other people.i cant remember hearing that genevieve owns a business which requires employee of labour..and the recent gist am hearing is that she is a illuminati member...abeg i give ma vote to FUNMI IYAND,ABIKE DABIRI..anyday anytime .shikena!!!!!!!!!

Amaka said...

Guys, being influential is different from being popular. Please don't screw things up. Genny and Omotola are popular NOT influential. Please vote wisely..

Blackknight said...

Vote for DAME PATIENCE GOOD LUCK JONATHAN.
Reason:

"While on a hospital visit to see the victims of the UN bombing, Dame Patience Jonathan commended the Doctors and Nurses for 'responding to treatment'!!!

That to me is being very Influential!

Anonymous said...

Genny and Omotola are just pretty faces who make money for their pocket ........ they both havent done one influential thing. Omotola especially .

Linda you self influential pass them..... Make i nominate my grandmama for village, she don better my life pass Genevieve thats for sure

Anonymous said...

ild definately vote for omosexy

Anonymous said...

Abeg omotola has influenced people with her orphanage projects. check on youtube sha if you are in doubt
As for the person that said genny influenced people to join the industry before genny there was omotola. so omotola has been in that industry longer than your genny so pls accord respect to whom respect is due! personally i dont see any project your genny has handled!
