Genevieve Nnaji featured on the Oprah Winfrey ShowPosted on Tuesday, September 29th, 2009 at 12:22 AM
Nigerian actress Genevieve Nnaji was featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show in an episode ‘Meet the Most Famous People in the World‘. A montage of photos and a video clip (from the movie ‘Bursting Out’) featuring Genevieve was shown as her various career highlights were mentioned. Gene who was referred to as the “Julia Roberts of Africa” on the show was chosen due to her wide appeal across the African continent and all over the world. Other stars from around the world including Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan (India) and Lu Yu (China) were also featured on the show.
Congrats to Genevieve!
Bella Naija is also excited that we assisted the Oprah Winfrey Show in working on this piece.
It is great to see Nigeria and Africa being presented in a positive light. Just seeing one positive story about Nigeria/Nigerians actually plays a significant role in changing the perceptions that many hold.
One step at a time….
