America Wants to See More of Genevieve Nnaji - According to Elle Magazine

Posted in: , ,

In a recent feature titled, "International Superstars: The Next Big Crossover Acts", Elle writers listed about seven stars from other countries who have been making some inroads into the American and international entertainment scene. Among those listed was Genevieve Nnaji. Read her feature below.


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." Her latest film, Half of a Yellow Sun, in which she stars alongside British actress Thandie Newton, premieres this year.


  1. Sha has worked hard for it and deserves every bit of her success don't you think?

  2. This looks more like PR but I hope it works out for her.
