    • Miss Thang

      October 8, 2011 at 7:04 am

      What kind of comment is that? All you Wanna-be-actresses sef! Wanting pple to leave the scene for you instead of fighting your way to the top! If you want it, come and git it! FYI Monalisa and Ini have not acted in the same movie together in the last FIVE years and that’s a fact! Whether you like it or not, these ladies arent any where any time soon so you had better figure another way to climb to the top… just as they did!

    • mabrose

      October 8, 2011 at 11:17 pm

      Bravo Miss Thang!!!!! I applaud those comments. I couldn’t have said it any better. you are so on point. Thank you.

    so out of millions of people between NIGERIA AND GHANA,is Nollywood trying to tell us that these are the ONLY BEST Actors we have – so much that we have NO choice but to RECYCLE for 100 years to come.

    First of Monalisa cant act, Bev Naya Cant ACt and Bryan Okwara is questionable.

    Cmon Nollywood. This is ridiculous. My foreign friends in the diaspora when we watch movies together they ask me “So are these the ONLY actors and actresses yall have” – and i am so ashamed cos i dont know how to respond.

    I think NOllywood should take 6 months out and truly star search for REALLLLLLLL TALENT and not have to recylce this much.

    I wait for the day where the WHOLE CAST will be new faces who will WHAO us off our feet.

    • partyrider

      October 6, 2011 at 6:12 pm

      i agree..i just feel emem isong has this “love” for Genevieve,ramsey,ini edo..and Nse though shes not in the cast of this movie 🙂 i also think shes one of the very good producers and the scripts she produces are good,so these guys easily go with the scripts.

      …and on the other hand,i feel the reason why ‘we’ feel we’ve seen enough of these guys is because apart from Jenifa, the REALLY GOOD nollywood movies that people look out for always have one or more of these guys..
      the crappy movies have A LOT of new faces and also old faces that have refused to grow 😀

    • Lizzie...

      October 9, 2011 at 2:40 pm

      So true about old faces that have refused to grow. Whatever sha, i’ve learnt that most movies are questionable when the tested and trusted acts are not in them.

    • Missy

      October 8, 2011 at 7:18 am

      A film where ‘the whole cast is new?’ My dear you must be on something that starts with w! How is that possible? Which producer will take that risk? Even in Hollywood? You shd have asked your foriegn friends why you only see Angelina Jolie, Brad pit, Tom Cruise etc in Hollywood movies also! You guys dont understand the film busines so I wont even bother explaining anythg to you. The truth is if all the cast were new they would only get limited viewership… by putting the A Listers, it guarantees even the new stars getting a shot at the limelight on a worldwide scale. its a business decision or have you watched the film called ‘Unwanted Guest’? Obviously not coz you didnt recognize anyone you knew!! Some pple sha….SMH

    • mabrose

      October 8, 2011 at 11:30 pm

      Do you actually have a problem with how producers decide to spend their money and how directors decide to cast their movies??? Its their money, their business and you are not forced to watch their movies. Onething that is really certain is you are envious of their successes and you wish it were you.
      Why don’t you take your request to God and beg him to give you the fame you are actually so thirsty for. But I doubt if heaven will even open a window to such prayer requests because it is coming from a jealous heart like yours.
      Whether you like it or not, this is the cast of the movie and yes the movie will be a blockbuster. All of these stars are successful and they are moving upwards without your negative comment or your support.

    • mabrose

      October 8, 2011 at 11:45 pm

      and look at the wanna be producer / script writer talking.. I bet if you had the talent to write scripts or produce a movie only you will be the fan. movie titles are being recycled always even in Hollywood.

      October 8, 2011 at 11:50 pm

    Yep I’m lovin’ Ini’s green dress as well! Hmm Ms. Genny, always got the X-FACTOR! Gotta go with the crowd that Monalisa is not a good actress (bite me if u can), not a fan of her movies cuz I never connect with her character…dat being said, she’s very gorgeous sha!

    October 6, 2011 at 10:08 pm

    Some people can hate sha.

    I only see Ramsey, Ini, Gene, and Monalisa as the New faces here. Let’s face it, these people are great actors, and when you’re good, you’re good. Monalisa has had some bad movies, but I think the lady has turned a new leaf. Look at her dressing, hair, and body. I sense some change will have taken place in her acting too.

    Gene is not playing at all oo.. Those shoes, Gahh lee… Lips, hair, everything! And Ini, I am liking!!

    Everything looks good, and I just hope this movie will be original. No doubt the acting will be great.. but I hope the story lines is interesting and legit. That is all… Crossing my fingers, and waiting. 2012 far small sha oo. lol

    Initial should stop recycling actors.thereare other great talents out there I’m really tired of seeing monalisa in all her movies.genny will be OK thoughand of course my Guy Ramsey. You can add some new faces and mix them with old faces. Take a leaf from Ghana’s Shirley frimpong MANSON.she also needs to step up
    her movies like location, artdirecti
    ng and especially the music
    her movie sound tracks are wack

    ! !!””””””she seem to be stuck in the 90s.however I think she still churns out good stories and credible movies compared to a lot of other producers
