GENEVIEVE NNAJI SPEAKS-“DBANJ IS AN ADULT AND HE SAID SOMETHING.LETS JUST…”

GENEVIEVE NNAJI

So finally, after almost a week since the whole D’banj/Genevieve relationship news came out,Genevieve finally talks about it in an interview with Desola Bakare of Encomium.
Enjoy 🙂
Genevieve Nnaji-“I can only say that I would like to keep my private life private and I really don’t have anything to say”


But if one part of a couple reveals that he is going out with someone as high profile as yourself, it makes the story credible if you can actually confirm this…
Genevieve “Dbanj is an adult and he has said something. Let’s just leave it at that…”

But can you clarify the whole thing by simply conforming or denying it?
Genevieve “I don’t want to talk about my private life. I don’t do it. I am well aware that people will say things. People have been calling me to find things out, but I am not going to say anything. I have learnt over the years that no matter what I say, people will say and believe what they like…you can not please everybody. This is my own way of handling things. I just don’t talk about my private life. It’s the one thing I can control”


But is it real or a publicity stunt? Is Dbanj lying?

Genevieve “Does he lie?”

By that are you inferring that he wasn’t telling a lie and what he said is true.

Genevieve “I am not inferring or insinuating anything. One person has said something and that really is enough. I am not saying I will never talk about it, but for now I do not wish to say anything about the matter.”

Guilty Pleasures Trailer

GidiNoize Interviews Nse Ikpe-Etim.

1. WHO IS NSE IKPE ETIM?

Nse Ikpe-Etim is a typical Libran. Courteous, artistic, gracious, forgetful, and prone to procrastination most of all a people pleaser. That about sums up the good, the bad but there is no ugly.

2. CAN YOU TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOUR BACKGROUND (EDUCATIONAL/FAMILY)?

I have a degree (BA) in Theatre Arts from the University of Calabar and still looking to add more qualifications…(lol). I am from a family of six children. I am the first and we are close knit. Our motto is love.

3. GROWING UP, WHO WERE YOUR INFLUENCES?

My mother influenced greatly. She’s the strongest woman I know, and if I could be just a quarter of the woman she is, I’ll be fine.

4. WHEN AND HOW DID YOU REALIZE ACTING WAS YOUR CALLING?

As a late starter, I had the interest from 18. I must say that although I acted through University (Stage) and after that a bit of screen, I had the strongest conviction after Reloaded

5. WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST ENCOUNTER WITH THE CAMERA?

My first encounter with the camera was in the 90’s when I used to anchor a breakfast television show as a student on NTA Calabar, but for film, it was with Venom of Justice 2.



NSE IKPE-ETIM IN GUILTY PLEASURES

6. WE UNDERSTAND THAT YOU ACTED IN ‘GUILTY PLEASURES’ AND ‘RELOADED’.CAN YOU TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOUR ROLES IN BOTH?

Both roles were completely different but similar because both women (Liz in “Guilty Pleasures “and “Omoze” in Reloaded) craved for their husband’s attention but went about it in completely different ways.

7. IN GUILTY PLEASURES THERE WERE A COUPLE OF STEAMY MOMENTS.HOW DID YOU COPE WITH THEM?

Like a professional, of course there were awkward moments, that’s natural but I was blessed to be working with two equally professional and extremely talented actors.

8. WHO WAS A BETTER KISSER MAJID MICHAEL OR RAMSEY NOUAH? LOL

You are talking about two happily married men, I personally believe that discussing their kissing abilities would be disrespectful to them and their spouses.

9. IN BOTH ‘GUILTY PLEASURES’ AND ‘RELOADED’ RAMSEY NOUAH WAS YOUR HUSBAND, WAS THIS A COINCIDENCE OR YOU GOT TO PICK?

It was purely coincidental

10. IN THE NIGERIAN MOVIE INDUSTRY WHO ARE YOUR FAVORITE ACTORS AND ACTRESSES?

There are so many talented actors and actresses. I always find it hard to pick so I’d say most of them.

11. WHAT HAS BEEN THE GREATEST MOMENT OF YOUR ACTING CAREER SO FAR?

I am still relatively new to this. I think it’s still on the way. You will be the first to know.

NSE IKPE-ETIM IN RELOADED

12. HOW DOES IT FEEL BEING A CELEBRITY?

Honestly, I feel the same way I used to feel when I was relatively unknown. It has not gotten to the point where I know. Like I said it’s a whole new thing.

13. HOW DO YOU COPE WITH THE FANS?

This might sound cliché, but my fans make me and I love them.

14. WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT ACTING AND BEING A CELEBRITY?
Acting for me is a whole new experience each time because it gives you a chance to step into a new character and become a whole new individual…it completely allows me to express myself, it’s the best feeling in the world as for being a celebrity….I still don’t know.

15. .IS THERE ANYTHING YOU DO NOT LIKE ABOUT ACTING? IF SO WHAT IS IT?

The only thing I do not like about acting is the publicity that comes with it. I’ve always been a private person, with few friends but acting takes that away, it just leaves you out there to the public.

16. .IS THERE ANYTHING YOU FEEL IS MISSING IN YOUR LIFE AT THE MOMENT?

Hmmmmmm….a mini me….. (Lol)

Nse Ikpe Etim

17. WHATS NEXT FOR NSE EKPE ETIM?

Honestly, I am taking each day as it comes…one step at a time

18. OUTSIDE THE MOVIE SCENE WHO IS NSE EKPE ETIM?

A friend…a clown…a sister….I am just plain Nse who enjoys the laughs…

19. HOW DO YOU KEEP IN SHAPE?

I’m not even going to lie and say I work out, diet and stuff because I don’t. I eat a whole lot; the only thing is I try to eat very small proportions every time. I eat and drink a lot of water.

20. APART FROM ACTING DO YOU HAVE OTHER AREAS OF INTEREST?

Yes! Cooking…I totally love cooking.

21. THERE ARE A COUPLE OF ACTRESSES IN THE NIGERIAN MOVIE INDUSTRY, WHAT MAKES YOU STAND OUT FROM THE REST?

Do I?? I don’t think so…….

22. WHAT DO YOU FEEL THE NIGERIAN MOVIE INDUSTRY IS LACKING AT THE MOMENT AND CAN YOU FEEL THE VOID?

The Nigerian Movie Industry is a peculiar one. There is no blue print on how and what should be done. The truth is we got here by virtue of our tenacity…so with a little more, we will conquer our fears. Piracy being one…..

23. WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN THE NEXT 10 YEARS?

Still cooking………

24. WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR UPCOMING ACTRESSES?

The race is not to the swift……Ecclesiastes. 9:11

25. ANY LAST WORDS FOR YOUR FANS?

Thank you for your unending support and I hope that no matter what, you will be there because we are in this together.

INTERNATIONAL FEATURE MOVIE ‘IJE’ TO MERGE NIGERIAN AND AMERICAN CULTURE THROUGH FILM INDUSTRY.

IJE_MOVIE

Since the inception of film-making in Nigeria 15 years ago, the world has been waiting for one Nollywood film that stands apart from the rest, one that will capture the minds and hearts of movie-goers worldwide, one that will leave a timeless memory, capable of illustrating the creativity, tradition, and essence of Nigerian culture. IJE is that movie.  Typically, Nollywood movies neglect the way films should be made by ignoring production value, focusing instead on famous actors and actresses. IJE which means “the journey” in the Nigerian language Igbo, will undeniably revolutionize the way Nigerian movies are viewed and created, as it is the first Nollywood film to include features common to Hollywood movies.

Unprecedented in scope, IJE tells a tale of Chioma, a child growing up in the Nigerian countryside, who warned her restless sister, Anya, about the trappings of the American Dream.  Now ten years later, Anya is accused of killing three men in a Hollywood Hills mansion—one of them her record producer-husband.  Chioma travels from Nigeria to Los Angeles, and with the help of a young, unproven attorney, discovers that the dark secret her sister wants to keep hidden might be the only thing that can win her freedom. A majority of the film was shot in the U.S. on 35mm, but it has flash back scenes that were shot on location in Jos, Nigeria.

Directed and produced by Nigerian Born Chineze Anyaene, “IJE” is a compelling drama with organic twists and turns. Anyaene is the youngest female director, and the first woman to film 35mm in Nollywood. Also produced by Paula Moreno, one of the first Producers in L.A. to take on the challenge of filming a Nollywood feature, the film boasts of an internationally diverse cast, such as Nigerian A-lister’s Genevieve Nnaji, who was recently profiled by Oprah Winfrey as one of the most famous people in the world, Nigeria’s sweetheart Omotola Ekeinde, and critically acclaimed actor Clem Ohameze. Hispanic sensation Odalys Garcia and upcoming actor Ulrich Que join the brilliant cast, a component that makes the film widely appealing to international audiences. Anyaene and Moreno, two trailblazing minority women, are determined to make a change in the international movie industry by merging the Hollywood and Nollywood industries.

IJE: THE JOURNEY is set for an exclusive screening at Warner Bros. on November 14, 2009 in Burbank, CA. For more information, marketing, and promotional opportunities please contact priscabu09@gmail.com
