Genevieve on Genevieve! Nollywood Star Genevieve Nnaji Sparkles in Gold on the cover of Genevieve Magazine’s April 2013 “Iconic Edition” Issue



Genevieve Nnaji - Genevieve Magazine's April 2013 Issue - BellaNaija01

Just like this cover, Genevieve Nnaji is living life like it’s golden!

The Nollywood star covers the April 2013 issue of Genevieve Magazine in a dazzling Lanre DaSilva Ajayi gold dress.

The movie star speaks exclusively to the magazine about her life, career and why she doesn’t disclose much of her private life. She tells the lifestyle publication that “If there’s anything that I aim,  it is that I keep my private life private. No comments on that I am dating, I keep it private”.

Inside the editorial spread, Genevieve is seen rocking an-all-black ensemble which consists of a fedora hat, a sequined chiffon blouse and silk charmeuse pants with high side slits by Bridget Awosika.

    Fail. She looks fat and plastic. Epic fail. Genevieve is at her best with pure and simple chic styles. I don’t know what’s up with this vampire looks. Plus the nicki minaj faces really turned me off.

      i quite agree with you. the cover is horrid. and we know its not Genny’s fault. Obviously Mrs. Irabor still doesnt know how to pick a good cover.

      Yes they totally messed her up on the cover page and it’s not her fault. Something funny is going on around the neck area too and the shoes are confusing.

    No bueno. Not liking the way she was styled for this cover. Not sure what happened here. She’s usually very nicely styled.

    That cover picture isn’t it at all… Nice dress tho.. Genny can look better….


    April 10, 2013 at 2:05 pm

    I agree with Dlapikin but not with the fat bit though. I love her organic beauty and her flawless chic and none came out for this cover. The cover is dark, busy and it takes you a while to realise it’s our beloved Genny. For an iconic cover, this is a fail to me.

    Come on!!!!!! Genevieve is way cuter and more beautiful than this…..U just made “Iconic” look “Fake”

    Epic fail. Make-up looks crappy. She looks better wtih a smile on her face.

    Even before reading the comments, just didn’t like the pose on d cover page. Nice dress. D pose and d face not just working for me here.

    April 10, 2013 at 2:32 pm

    No!!!! The shoe for the cover is wrong! Too chunky! Nice dress though,nice cover.

  16. Peachy_mo

    April 10, 2013 at 2:39 pm

    No No No. This is not my Nnaji…DARN NO! Ge baybe looks more beautiful when she has a relaxed poise. She naturally has an aura of mystery so why crush it with this forced robotic looked? NO WAY!

  17. On Point

    April 10, 2013 at 2:42 pm

    Nigerians just don’t get the message. She is an icon, an actress, and the cover is meant to have a dark edge. Looks like they were trying to catch her in character. I totally get the twilight feel to this, awesome outfit too, the gold dress is gorge!

  18. Say What?

    April 10, 2013 at 2:42 pm

    Aunty Betty needs to just quit. Who designed this cover? These wayward children Wow and Complete Fashion are just flogging veterans like dem thief for market

    This looks like a black barbie, guess that was what the were going for, but I think Genevieve both the lady and the mag, should be more mature than that.

    Im a huge Genny fan n will defend her anywia, anyday n anytime buh this cover isnt just working….. Sometin is def wrong. My genny looks hawt when she appears simple n classy. This cover is not totally a hawt mess buh looking like it.

    Genevieve Nnaji is a stunning looking babe. This cover does not do her jsutice at all. I agree with previous comment; it makes her look plastic and stiff.

    April 10, 2013 at 4:13 pm

    the first pix was gorge, as for the second one no comment

  26. Hi

    Um all the people that said the cover looks horrible, I know you’re entitle to your own opinion but I’m sorry are you blind? Oh well, I think she looks amazing and fierce, I like. x

    She looks like oscar statue on d cover

  33. Tosin

    April 10, 2013 at 6:35 pm

    This shouldn’t have been the cover. I hate when some Nigerian base publications and stylists dont have a better understanding of how a fashion editorial should look like. An editorial should tell a story from start to finish. I love Genevieve Nnaji!!!

  34. KikiN

    April 10, 2013 at 6:35 pm

    Are you guys kidding me?? I love love love these pics! She looks amazingly fierce! Love it!

  39. Subomi Douglas

    April 10, 2013 at 9:08 pm

    No my Genny baby! This is not the sh*t. Too much hair, invisible neck, fake/cheap looking background, the pose, length of dress with those chunky shoes make her look shorter.
    These people should hire me as a creative director. What am I doing here giving free advice?

  40. Helena

    April 10, 2013 at 9:24 pm

    The cover is a godawful mess. Apart from my girl Gen. She shines even when the yeye stylist, half-wit photographer and shoot director conspire to undermine her.

  41. Helena

    April 10, 2013 at 9:26 pm

    Genevieve (the mag) looked surprisingly good for the past four or five editions but this one is just… FAIL

  42. Chika*

    April 10, 2013 at 9:29 pm

    Stars and their “I want my personal life private” eh
    I really wish they will stop interviewing them. Let them go with their products. Most of the time, the fans wants to know about you than whatever art you are promoting.

  43. Diva

    April 10, 2013 at 10:08 pm

    it is increasingly obvious that everybody just goes with the popular opinion on these comments, have a mind of your own, objectivity can be applied. Everything is not as you think it and I refuse to believe everyone thinks the same, yes it is not the best cover but are u only looking at the picture or are you seeing the creativity that was put in?

  44. Tosin

    April 11, 2013 at 5:14 am

    I love Genevieve. The cover doesn’t look like her. It may work in this world of plenty make-up tho. Real Gene, Fake Gene, it’s all good. She’s an actress after all.

    • Tosin

      April 11, 2013 at 5:18 am

      ok who am I kidding, it sucks. But in a totally pop way. I can just see many airheads I know adopting the plastic look, the doll pose.

  45. chizzy

    April 11, 2013 at 8:20 am

    We ve known genevieve with simplicity and light make-up. This cover is somtin far from who she is. Is not genevieve’s fault. Mrs Irabor please don’t make this mistake with my angel nx time.Love genevieve always.

    Genny has put on weight yes but she still could have rocked her weight gain but these ppictures do not do her justice at all infact she looks strange in them.
