Genevieve Nnaji says she never called Nollywood bland & mediocre

Actress Genevieve Nnaji, who hardly responds to reports about her, has responded to this one. A day after she was called out by Nollywood director Mac Collins Chidebe for allegedly describing Nollywood as bland and mediocre in an interview with Punch over the weekend, Ms Nnaji took to her instagram page to deny she ever used those words. What she wrote below...
I never called my industry bland and mediocre. Truth or not, they were NOT MY WORDS. As a person/writer, you can "assume" what you like about my thought process but DO not project those thoughts as "quotes" by me. It's distasteful, insensitive and quite unprofessional. It's insulting to those limited few working hard to make a difference in the industry. I am a product of Nollywood and my loyalty remains unshaken.

Your comment on 'Linda's Monday Giveaway' cracked me up! The 'situation' no serious anything o. Just looking for freebies. Anyway I'm not surprised by the outcome cos I'm no good @ winning such bonanzas/lottery or whatever name you call it. Maybe we can meet up so you share your secrets to winning free stuffs, I.e Nokia Lumia, N100k from linda etc *wink***

In 'MY OPINION' genny is not even that great of an actress.. Yes she has gone international and all that but her acting is dull in my opinion,people love her bcox of her beauty and long coverage and loads of past controversies!! Anyway to each his own sha,just sayin!

BONARIO NNAGS said...

Nice response and a matured one from her. But that doesn't change the level of mediocrity in the movie industry.

~BONARIO~says so via NOKIA LUMIA

Angie Cape said...

Genny would never say that directly; she's very smart and articulate..
Let's not forget that it's the same industry that made her, employed and keeps employing some jobless youths.. Only that they've now introduced POLITICS into it.

Madam, the man asked you a simple question? Your response it pityable from a professional as you claim to be, too many uncalled for words.
What have you added to the industry? Have you produced any films or brought heaven to Nigeria?
I fear to know the answer to that?

NOLLYWOOD IS A RELIGION FOR MANY PEOPLE ACROSS D GLOBE NOW NOT JUST NAIJA, SO PLEASE GENI AND OTHERS DONT DENEGRATE SOMETHING BUILT BY THOSE BEFORE YOU. AS FOR MANY JOURNALISTS THEY USUALLY DRINK, SMOKE AND GET HIGH WHILE WRITING SO IT COULD BE A CASE OF DRUNKEN JOURNALISM

Damochedxb said...

I am willing to bet that those were the exact words Ms Nnaji used to describe the industry that brought her fame and fortune. On realising her eff up, she got off her high horse and retracted her statement, hence her statement "wether true or false".. I dont know, but to me ,this is one seriously overated actress with a very huge ego.. Classism is the new racism and some Nigerian celebs have caught that bug..

I've given up on naija journalists, they write nonsense, misquote you, you give them releases and they still get it wrong which is difficult to imagine how that is even possible but it has happened so frequently. Big ones o, small ones oo, all na d same. A very big shame on all of them. They. Don't get sued for misrepresentation that why they take such liberties.
