    3. Genevieve Nnaji, Mercy Johnson, Stephanie okereke, Kate henshaw and Ini Edo really survived as dark skinned in Nollywood

      Delete
    4. She is the moat popular,yes but definitely not the best. She is cery mediocre. She came at a time that nollywood was just picking up thats why. Toni tones, bimbo ademoye,mercy johnson,iretiola doyle,bimbo akintola,kate henshaw,samkele idlahama are all way more verstile than her. I am proud of her as a woman. But nahh she needs acting classes.

    6. Eva, God bless U. Genevieve is just living on initial old glory. These names u mentioned are all fantastic actors. U forgot Ivy Ok ...something. , very brilliant actor & a few others.

    9. Most popular but not most talented. We have a few actors who are more brilliant in their delivery than Genevieve, both in her time & now. Has any body watched Ivy Okujaije? Young, intelligent, well spoken & versatile actress. She slowed down bcoz of marriage & kids. They should stop these comparisons here & there, it brings bad blood among these celebrities.

    10. No wonder exam dey difficult for una. The question is, who is the most popular actor not who is the best or most versatile actor! Una hear?

      Delete
    11. Eva that's how you fail exams. Did you answer the question? I don't know how you feel being so judgemental about other people's capabilities. I sincerely hope you're the best in your field.

      Delete
    12. Eva please add Bisola Aiyeola and Uche Ogbodo to that list. Tho i think Uche's tasteless shenanigans on social media distracts from the fact she is actually a fine actor

    13. I agree πŸ‘ŒπŸΎπŸ·. She is

    14. Ivy is highly underrated

    15. Anonymous 13:24, i am not the best in my field at all,and i admit it, thats why i always try to improve. I meet those better than me to mentor me. I aleays strive to improve on myself. I can never ever claim to be perfect. I am even my greatest crtic. I love Genevieve as a woman. I just feel she should improve on her craft. I am not being negative.
      God bless

    16. @Eva biko add Nse Ikpe- Etim to your list. Babe is damn good. Delivers her role 101%

      Delete
    17. Eva, I agree. Genevieve is beautiful and I admire how she carries herself but as an actor, she is not as talented. She is very stiff on camera.

      Delete
    18. @Eva, Stella asked about the most popular, mind you most talented and versatile is relative, I think Genevieve is talented and versatile. Some of those people you mentioned up there do not fit in for me as good actors and yes it is my opinion.

  3. Yes, she is. She has a huge global following many of whom are not Nigerian. She is an international star and the most well known Nollywood actor.

  4. I disagree. There's Ramsey Noah. There's Omotola. There's Olu and Joke Jacobs .

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. These people you just mentioned are not as well known internationally like Genevieve. I'm not debating the greatness of Olu and Joke Jacobs and the impact they've had in nollywood but Genevieve is recognized even outside Africa. As for Ramsey Noah and Omotola they are just mediocre, they can't compare to Genevieve both locally and internationally.

      Delete
    2. Olu Jacob's has featured in international movies. I doubt if Genevieve has featured in any major hollywood film, and dont count half of a yellow sun as her international film feature because she was almost deleted from the movie. It was strong begging from her pr team that ket them include her 2 minutes scene.

      Delete
    3. Joke Silva is very well known internationally.

      Delete
    4. Sweet Anony 09:12,no baby, guru Ramsy ain't no mediocre babe, ah ahn!! He's one of the most talented in Nollywood, he's a NATURAL FANTASTIC ACTOR, TRUTH. And I agree, those people the first anonymous mentioned their names payed their dues and were and still notably the pioneers of Nollywood but they are not as popular, known or celebrated home and internationally as Genny.

      Delete
    5. Lol Ramsey is very overrated and one dimensional as an actor. He only got the hype he did because he was mulatto and a fine boy and as Nollywood was in its baby stages, there were no Mike Ezuruonye, Mike Godson or Nonso Diobis to compete with him as a fine, light skinned dude.

      Delete
  5. I can't even disagree with the poll. Genny baby is quite popular πŸ’•πŸ’•

  6. I like Genevieve and I feel people who say she is overrated or private never quite grew with her craft from inception. See eh, most of these actresses Dey learn when it comes to popularity. Genevieve’s face was always on the cover of most all soft sell magazines in the late 90s and beyond. Stella can confirm( Encomium, City people, Hints, heart magazine.) She was quite perceived as one of the most controversial during her time. To those who say her acting falls flat, stop it. You may not be a fan and it’s okay but do not classify her craft as bland. She’s played almost every character you can think of. Na age and wisdom make her press low...put some respect on that name.

    1. Thank you so much for this analysis.
      children that was born yesterday, always run Here to say she is overrated. and I laugh anytime I see that nonsense comments. if you were to young when most of us fell in love with her craft instead you to start hating because of your age. dig up old things about her.

    3. They have forgotten when she was giving us back to back because her last role in lion heart was a quiet, gentle one. They have forgotten her role as a village maid, lover, wicked sister etc. They have forgotten when she acted 'he lives in me'.

      Now some are saying Adesua is better. Kai, Genny I am sorry about this level of disrespect. Accept our apologies abeg

    4. @kponskii,i love you deary😘.
      What drives me crazy the more about her is, she'd make you forget you're actually watching a movie, she's so natural with her acting and has this way of blending perfectly well with any role/character she's playing, she's just too good.
      KEEPING FAITH

      WIND OF GLORY
      IJELE, THE GODESS OF THE SUN
      I forgot the name of this movie she played two different characters, she was married to Nonso Diobi and her mother in law was Clarion Chukwura. She had a twin sister who was a prostitute that eventually kidnapped the married Genevieve's daughter in school, she murdered the both characters in the movie. She has practically played every role, name it!!
      PROSTITUTE
      SPOILT BRAT
      RICH CLASSY AUNTY
      CRIMINAL
      MAD WOMAN
      SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENT
      LAWYER
      BANKER
      POOR VILLAGE GIRL/ORPHAN
      MOTHER, etc. She's payed her dues legendary well enough and she deserves all the respect and accolades.
      Most people feel it's when you over react and shout and do some disgusting shits like crying while Carter runs out your nose for viewers to see (absolutely disgusting and unnecessary) is when you're a fantastic actor?? Mba oo. Genny is a natural born actor and we,including the self acclaimed haters know this as a fact.

      Delete
    5. You are wrong when you say she has played every character you can think of...that would be more Mercy Johnson. And yes her acting is bland. You all just get sucked in by Genevieve's calm nature and pretty face. It is because of the way Nigerian media portrayed her in the early days of Nollywood.."Nollywood's sweetheart' that made her popular internationally and not that she is more talented than a number of other veterans in her time.

    9. @ anon 10:07 For someone who has well over 200 movies under her belt, I don’t know what other role you expect to see her interprete. @ Chisom did a thorough break down πŸ‘†. Genevieve is flexible with diverse roles and if you truly want to appraise an actor, watch out for details like facial expression, hand gesture and body movement in tandem with the line or scene. Most NIgerians misconstrue unnecessary yelling and exaggerated expression as acting... mba. As much as I think there are a poll of good actors, Genevieve takes the cake. Ask her colleagues why she is revered. I can go on and on but let’s not stretch it too much. She’s really good, she’s the most popular...she’s GENEVIEVE NNAJI🍻

      Take a tour through her tik tok page and appreciate a good act.

    14. @Eka Joy Adesuwa is another overrated one. How can people say Adesuwa is better than Genevieve? Hianest! Genevieve is a pioneer. PERIOD. Anyone who says Adesuwa is better isn't old enough to remember when Genevieve carried the industry on her back

      @Anon 10: 07 Mercy that is always typecast as an agbero is versatile? Hmmm

    17. Lol, see ehh, what makes up an intelligent and wise person is not arguing blindly over things you know nothing about,or something you blatantly refused to admit because of jealousy or hatred for the subject matter.The least you can do is to make some researches about the subject matter,Nobody is forcing you to like her or something but when it comes to saying the truths and stating facts about some certain things, you just go ahead and voice it out instead of arguing blindly as the truth will not kill you. I'm not a fan of RMD but,is he a good actor?? O YES he absolutely is and we moveee!! Life ain't that hard peeps.

  12. Somebody that can't act to save her life. I've not seen her transform roles and charaxters. She's too rigid an actor. A good actor has to be fluid and able to take up diverse roles. I can't immediately think of my own Nigeria's most veteran actor. I'll do that and come back in the comments section. Cos there are so many of them, it's difficult to choose. If we had said Nigeria's most classy actor, I'd agree 100%.

  16. Yes oo Stella, she is indeed. She placed Nollywood to the place it currently is right now, people got to be interested and invested in Nollywood because of the name Genevieve, She had been doing great things both locally and internationally before the invention of social media, especially in our dear country Nigeria.

    That person up there that mentioned mj(no disrespect) as she is not a bad actress too should apologise to genny.If u knew the different genres of movies genny acted those days and how she interpreted those roles more than perfectly,you will know she deserves this award and more!!!
    *who remembers the movie 'last party*?

  25. Come on now, I love MJ, but she is not better tan Genevieve. Genevieve ans Omotila are still Nollywood's number 1 followed closely by Rita Dominic. MJ tend to over act and someone should tell MJ and Destiny that acting village girl role does not automatically mean the village girl has to look dirty and unkempt biko especially MJ.
