Genevieve Nnaji has spoken on her new movie Road To Yesterday as well as marriage plans.
The Nollywood star explained this, among other things, in an interview with Punch. She also credited African Magic for lending some help in making the movie project a success.
In response to why it took this long for her to produce a movie herself just as her colleagues in the industry have done, she answered: “I chose to be an actress. Acting was what I had always wanted to do. I don’t think that I ever imagined myself producing a film. I love acting. If the Nigerian movie industry was as stable as it should be, I probably would have been on the set of a movie every day of my life and not be bothered about what goes on behind the camera. So it is a matter of choice and preference.”
The movie, which has enjoyed a relatively good buzz online since the trailer dropped, features Majid Michel, Ebele Okaro and Oris Ehuero amongst other actors.
A steamy bathroom scene was posted online over a week ago and has helped pique fans’s interests.
Explaining why she chose a unique set of actors for the movie she said: “It is part of our effort to open up Nollywood to more newcomers and to create opportunities for people who are very talented and who have the passion for this job. This is why we have somebody like Ishaya Bako in the team.”
Oris Ehuero, who was formerely a model with years of international exposure, plays the role of Genevieve’s husband in the movie which is billed to premiere on November 18.
However when asked if she is gearing up for an actual marriage in real life Genevieve responded that she hasn’t seen the ideal partner.
She appears keen on settling down if the right guy comes her way given her response.
She said: “I haven’t found the right man yet. When he comes, I’ll get married.”
Genevieve Nnaji is a multi award winning actress.
The 36-year-old has almost 100 movie appearances till date. She was once likened to a Hollywoood great by Oprah Winfrey who described her as the Julia Roberts of Africa.
