The Imo State born diva , Genevieve Nnaji has always been an actress with a class, having taken her craft to the next level, Genevieve has been noted to be one of the finest actress that ever walked on the surface of Nigeria. She is that good , trust me ,though some pundit might deny this because we have Rita, Omoni, Johnson, Tola et al but she is in a class of her own. She remains one of the best of them all.
Having made tremendous impact in the acting world, it looks as if anything she touches is turns to gold like the proverbial Midas, but she is a human, with big failure in the music industry, having played some “funny” music then, she realised that music ain’t her thing. That’s SWOT analysis, she focused on her craft – acting .
Ije, a movie project which she was one of changed the narrative of how Nigerian movies where viewed. She took Nollywood to Hollywood. Not yet done, as it is with life, there is always need to progress and upgrade. Gene as she is fondly called went into production. Trust the real estate cum actor’s taste she got taste and she got em in big quantity. She is lion hearted, as a business woman she takes risk and just like the region she comes from known for taking risky decision, Genevieve took a big one , a big budget movie and she freaking produce it, putting her reputation, brand and finance in the line. That is what is called big risk business venture, the out come is LION HEART! a movie that has impressed the world that has Netflix noticing the movie and wanting the franchise , the first ever. That’s an impressive move for a movie by a green horn producer. As we said she got the Midas magic stick . The movie is up for awards, it’s Grolsch People’s Choice Awards! Can you imagine that ?
In her social media handle, the pretty diva said that ” @lionheartthemovie is up for the ‘Grolsch People’s Choice Awards’ guys can you believe it!!? 💃🏾🤗.

Toronto and some key cities of the world are places that the movie would be premiered. Having done with the Canadian city, the elated actress cum producer and the pretty single mother of one said that
“A big thank you to everyone who attended @lionheartthemovie premiere. My wonderful co star #NkemOwoh; the entire cast and crew, @tiff_net , my publicist and management, my glam team, the press, our guests and audience; my family and friends.
