Snazzy Cameroonian actress, Genevieve Nganji, isn’t a household name
in Nigeria. But back in her country, she’s as popular as Nigeria’s
Genevieve Nnaji. The sexy actress was one of the celebrities that
graced this year’s edition of the prestigious Magic Lens Africa Film
Academy awards of excellence which held in Abuja last weekend.
She has resolved never to rest on her oars until she has made a name
that is bigger than that of our dearest Genevieve. Back in her country,
she’s known as Genevieve of Cameroon.
Even though she’s looking forward to meeting Genevieve Nnaji in
person, the actress is wondering why fans are referring to her as
Genevieve of Cameroon. She said, “What is so important about her
since I am not copying what she is doing. I want to be bigger than her
and I’m working very hard to achieve this dream.” She said, each time
her fans watch her movies back home, they tend to mistake her for Ini
“Fans always tell me that while I am bearing the same name with
Genevieve Nnaji, I look very much like Ini Edo,” she said, adding that
she’s optimistic she will soon become the next megastar to emerge
from Africa. Nganji, who started acting in 2002, featuring in such
movies as Land of Shadows, alongside Zack Orji, Ramsey Nouah, “Dual
Passion”, “Out of the Blue” among others, said her big dream is to
debut in Nollywood. On the movie industry in Cameroon, Nganji
regrets that most local producers are sacred of putting their money in
the industry, despite the significant improvement that has been
recorded in the industry.
