Genevieve Nnaji Talks Marriage and Taking A Break From Nollywood

Actress Genevieve Nnaji says she will get married whenever her man finds her. Genevieve said this in a recent interview with Encomium magazine. When asked when she’ll be getting married, Genevieve said, “When he finds me.” Asked if he hasn’t found her yet, she said, “Exactly.”

Genevieve also talked about her career and the speculation that she had taken a break from Nollywood. She says she had been absent from the movie scene because she hadn’t found any script that was worth her time.

“I didn’t take a break. Yes, you haven’t seen me in any film but it is not my doing. I read at least three or four scripts a week for the past five years. That is to show you how bad it is. I am very careful when it comes to what I take part in.

“There is so much or nothing you can do to convince me. I have to love a story so that I can bring it to life. It is not a one man band. The story needs to entice. The character needs to be appealing and then, you are one with it. With that, it becomes easy to be a good actor. If I don’t get a good script, I am not going on set. I haven’t seen anything worth my while in years; that is the truth. I don’t know who did what we did in the 90s. If you can’t beat your last job, what is the point? You might as well take a bow but I am not bowing out yet.”

The actress certainly isn’t. She returns to the screen in her forthcoming movie titled Road to Yesterday. Starring alongside her is Nigerian-British actor Oris Erhuero as her hubby, as they try to mend their troubled marriage during a road trip to a relative’s funeral.7a

Road To Yesterday, directed by award-winning filmmaker Ishaya Bako, is scheduled to premiere in Nigeria on November 18 and hits the cinemas on November 27.
