Is Genevieve Nnaji the New Marilyn Monroe…Majid Michel thinks So



Genevieve Nnaji & Majid Michel - March 2014 - BellaNaija

Aww…Majid Michel has lots of nice things to say about Genevieve Nnaji.

The Ghanaian actor who has always raved about the Nollywood actress, was all smiles as they posed together at the 2014 Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards in Lagos.

He later shared a sweet message on Instagram after the awards ceremony, using lyrics from Rihanna‘s “Love Without Tragedy/Mother Mary” song.

“Twas at the #AMVCA’s…. Red lipstick, rose petals, heartbreaks, she was my Marilyn Monroe ! Brown eyes, tuxedos, red carpet, fast cars i was her James Dean on the Low… Ladies and Gents… The Ex-host Presents…Ex-travagance… Never seen such Magnificence in a Black Princess… Felt like Love struck me on that Night… I pray that Love doesn’t strike Twice. B*****s got the Audacity to say they were like U. #AMVCA #greatshow @genevievennaji”

    No doubt, it’s a virtue to be humane. Very nice of you MAJID to appreciate the physical beauty of an adorable coral, the beauty spot of the jungle.
    In fairness, I thought Genevieve Nnaji was cute in a beautiful way!

    Which genny is it the sand person or am seeing double. Damn beautiful where. Genny wye don old. No beauty whatsoever there are several beautiful girls nija she’s the least. She’s an average Nigeria girl that wears designer stuff, maybe real or fake I have no idea. Linda ikeji was in the plain jane category with her but linda has indeed polished herself . Marilyn Monroe was a sex symbol. Period ms nannies no even try small.

    I know Genny is naturally stunning, but she honestly didnt look her best at this awards show. Just look at the pix above, look at her makeup and that ugly dress…………….

    People don’t realize that Marilyn Monroe was a glorified ho. How is that a “nice thing” to say about someone? Smh.

      You know, I think he was trying to do her the highest honor of likening her to an icon but, sadly, bypassed the Greta Garbos, Lauren Bacalls, Veronica Lakes, Joan Crawfords, Rita Hayworths even Lena Hornes of that era of Hollywood. The female greats who combined beauty with acting prowress.

      Goodness me, now list REALLY put me in the mood to go watch any old movie with Audrey Hepburn in it… love me some vintage hollywood reels.

    Does Majid know the history of Marilyn Monroe? Which part does Genie resemble? Because Marilyn wasn’t renown for her acting as much as she was renown for her sex appeal and air headedness, probably the blonde jokes originated with her. Genevieve does NOT ooze sex appeal, she is an attractive woman but she is NOT sexy. She doesn’t have the shape that Marilyn Monroe had which killed on screen and off. Is it the Marilyn who slept with two very married brothers or the one who was hook on prescription medication or the one who married and divorced three times? The one who had low self esteem? Which wan does Genevieve exude in emulation?

    I know he meant well but some compliments fit be curse sef!

      You just said what’s on my mind. Marilyn was also heavily controlled by her handlers and some have said she was a high level prostitute/monarch mind-control slave. He probably meant well, but people who know a thing or two about Marilyn’s life would not consider that a compliment. Oh well…

      Whoa after knowing a thing about Marilyn’s life. You notice one thing her list of problems are seemingly endless. But then I draw a column by the side and list my own list of problems and notice she is only human.

      Marilyn’s charms lie not in her flaws and mistakes and troubles but in what she represented which was showing that a woman can indeed go far in her career and life. And that women are not bound necessarily to marriage and one can aspire for more. And also that beginning as nothing does not mean that you must end as nothing.

    he’s obsessed with genevieve, and she can do no wrong in his eyes. she’s a pretty girl but many nigerian girls also look like her. but she was very stunning when she was younger.

    Is this a compliment? What was MM known for? Her sexiness (not her beauty) and sleeping around with several men including JFK. Also, her undignified exit from this world. At best, this statement is a backhanded compliment.

    The problem with African people is we do not read, we do not study or make researches…..Why won’t an actor of his calibre know what examples Marilyn Monroe was… least, if he no fit read, he for don watch True hollywood story of Monroe…

    Hian, maybe on the otherhand though, he knows exactly who monroe was, and knows who gennie is….They might just be similar! Who knows!?

    Lastly, is gennie bleaching, i see black knuckles….

    I want to believe this dress was more beautiful in person, in pictures, I don’t see anything to it, just my opinion though. And to compare her to Marilyn Monroe is getting a little carried away, isn’t it. Anyway, beauty lies in the lies of the beer, i mean, beholder.

    This could as well be a diss. Both parties probably don’t see it as such.

    We need to read more in these parts, myself included.
    May God help us.

    P.S- I’ve never understood the hype about Gene’s beauty. I’ve seen 100s of regular naija babes hotter.

    because you have seen 1 million hotter regular naija girls doesnt change d fact that she is beautiful. She didnt say she was in a competition, she is beautiful period!

    People with stinking thinking. If he mentioned Marilyn Monroe, then it is based on her beauty not her character or behaviour. We should learn to stop reading meaning into nothing.
