Genevieve Nnaji needs no introduction, The Nollywood screen goddess is every young girls dream. pretty, excellent actress, best dressed celebrity(yes i said it), the list is endless.
Genevieve just added another feather to her already full hat, as she was featured on Elle Magazines International superstar: The Next Big Crossover Act List, which was published online yesterday.
Here’s what Elle had to say about Genny:
One of the most powerful actresses working in Africa, Nnaji began her career at age eight, and has been constantly working in commercials and movies ever since. She’s credited with putting Nollywood, Nigeria’s Hollywood, on the map. In 2005 she was awarded Best Actress at the inaugural African Movie Academy Awards (AMAA), and used her fame to launch her clothing line, St. Genevieve, in 2008 with the proceeds from sales supporting orphanages. And she has the Oprah seal of approval—in 2009 Nnaji was profiled on an episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show, with the host referring to her as one of the most popular people around the world and the “Julia Roberts of Africa.”
The list also features former Miss World and Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai, English singer Pixie Lott and Mexican pop star Anahi.
