    As long as you keep exploiting Nigerians and indiscriminately hiking subscription fees, bribing ministry of communication officials and politicians and refusing to give us a choice to pick what channels we want watch and pay for it . Then all these razzmatazz is nothing but show. I also urge the actors to come together and stop prostituting for any tome dick and Harry that can pay your plane ticket and hotel bill give you small chop money. You are a brand for Petes sake stand for something or you will fall for anything.

      But did you know you could start a campaign online and garner attention to those plights you just mentioned. Start a campaign to boycott them, gather peeps and go to their offices to protest .. do something about it. Don’t keep waiting for people in the public eye to do stuff for you. Contribute your own quota. For all you know those celebs are not being affected by those issues.

      Tell da Truth. Here in Kenya, DSTV premium per month costs more than one month salary for househelp. They just raised the subscription fees. Why? Dollar exchange rate has risen. The last time I checked DSTV is in South Africa and they use Rand, not Dollar!?!? Why exploit Africans????

    …amaa, I completely agree with you. And you hit the proverbial nail on its head when you bemoaned nollywood actors as a brand that can make positive changes in the social lives of Nigerians and Africa as a whole…but the problem is, they have no clue other than “,…prostituting themselves…” Enough said.

    Genny looking dry She won’t go and marry see her mate omoT looking fab and winning lol

    • Huh

      September 3, 2015 at 4:21 pm

      Genny looking dry ke? In all your years on earth, both you and the person you compare her to will never be as effortlessly fabulous or as classy as genny.
      She doesn’t have a man but she has accomplished more than the married counterpart you name, has more endorsements, more recognition worldwide, and I know you will refuse to admit this but is still the Queen/King/#1 of nollywood to date. And all of this without a husband? Give honor where it’s due mami. Better yet, sit down.

      Maybe someone needs to tell you that ‘THIS IS AFRICA’ and your dry Genny really needs a man and if you want to talk about accomplishments, do you know what it takes to raise 4 amazing children and still be The Queen of Nollywood as said by TIMES and been one of the most influential people in the world. You sound to me like a failure and someone that easily get intimidated. OLODO

    @prince.. Genny DOESN’T need a man. She might want a man and that’s okay.. every straight woman does. But there is a big difference between those two. She has a child as well and has managed to accomplish everything she has without the support of a man in a society that maintains that a woman cannot amount to any value without a man by her side. Now that is a STRONG woman! That’s what you call shattering the glass ceiling. That is confidence.. that is fearlessness..bravery, and intelligence – all which from your comment it’s glaring that you lack. So sit down let me educate your basic life and watch those who don’t conform get the recognition and respect. Don’t hate. Appreciate. Infact model your life after hers.. adopt a few of her qualities you can handle.. it will do your bland existence a whole lot of good.

    Oh and by the way, she started being internationally recognized by the BEST corporations – Forbes, CNN, BBC just to name a few – before your aunty there even began her own journey and she is till date. Not that she needs any int’l recognition to validate her brand but there is no comparing. She will ALWAYS come first and you and the person who sent you will deal with it.

      Gbam! Well said. “Marriage and having kids no be by force”or to please human..

    • Nenes

      September 4, 2015 at 5:39 am

      At huh the truth is bitter. As for having a child of course she did! She became a “baby mama” when it was not cool to- still isn’t in case you missed it. Cool only for the lower classes/ghetto dwellers and Nigerian young ladies with misplaced priorities. She is a bad role model for young ladies and that is why her child is hidden away because even oyinbo has a name for what the child is. Even in the “West” having a child outside wedlock is still taboo talk more of the society we live in.

      As for effortlessly classy, wow you must be blind! I mean, how? Classy and Genny really should not even be used in the same sentence.

    • Huh

      September 4, 2015 at 7:01 am

      Even oyinbo has a name for what that child is? What? Mr President? Cos that’s what they are calling Obama today and you know he is also that ‘kind’ of child. A child is ALWAYS a blessing. She’s a very private person hence the privacy of the kid as well.. and that’s a very smart thing to do which i’m sure you know. Why thrust her child in the limelight knowing there’s always a bitter pack of wolves ready to pounce? Receive sense Nenes! This same oyibo you’re talking about are the ones recognizing her up and down even before the one in a marriage. Abi you think they don’t know she has a child outside of wedlock? The fact that you brought in somebody’s child into this shows that you’re just a dumb soul but the good news is that Genny has overcome and risen above all y’alls backward retarded mentality. Deny it all you will but she’s STILL the face of nollywood. Heck she’s face of nigeria’s celebrities and you KNOW it. That’s why she can be away from the screen for long and still get the TOP endorsements. She’s confident enough to know that she doesn’t have to vie for attention on the blogs to be relevant. She just is. The one you compare her to knows this as well and knows she’s gotta put up a fight to attain that level hence all the activity and notice me propaganda. But there can only be one queen b in the pack and it ain’t your gal.

      Nenes, you are like seriously third-world daft. You can’t seriously be this backwards. It’s thirst feigns like you who end up in abusive marriages where you get pounded like yam on a regular basis and end up staying in such marriages. You know why? Because you don’t want to be dry and single. It’s such a pity you come off as desperate and pathetic. You are still in the 1800’s where you assume that a woman’s greatest accomplishment is in taking another man’s last name and decorating his home like a piece of furniture. Do you self a favor… say to yourself when you wake up everyday and say it very slowly since you are a slow thinker, ” I am worth more than being a foot-mat in a man’s house. I have a purpose here on earth beyond being a man’s toy. I am worth something.” Maybe one day, you’ll get to believe that and be a useful part of society but in the meantime, go grab a book and READ!!!

      You Huh are just a shit steerer! Every comment you made was towards Omotola. You even said something about ” you and who send you” referring probably to omotola. You are a coward and a troubled soul. Coward since you couldn’t mention names, troubled soul as you kept fighting the wind and shooting sporadically , irrespective of who your target should be. I feel for you.” Strong woman” .the saddest people to observe are the ones who scream on the mountain like they’re wise yet you can see the utter silliness in their actions/noises.

    But why are people just trying to pit two beautiful, talented women with different destinies against each other now? Haba fear God! They are both successful and accomplished in similar aspects (their careers) as well as different aspects (marriage, number of children n all). Please abeg lets stop with the unnecessary comparisons and just appreciate these individuals.

    @Huh blowing you a kiss from here. When I saw your reply, I was like no need replying this figment of somebody’s imagination called prince. Then I read through. Good. You’re my girl. A prince should have character. There are articles you should just pass over. You go so low as to pitch two successful celebrity women against each other. I thought it was just Beyonce against Kim. So Genny against OmoT follow?. I know your type. Those loud, beer drinking men. Who get all excited when the gossip is about women. Especially the ones that are successful. They call your type frustrated gossips. No not prince. To think you are married with kids. O well that can’t be helped. You are free to hit me with your best shot. You bet I won’t be replying. Said my piece. Bella you better post this.

    In as much as I hate the unnecessary COMPARISMS. Only daft and UN accomplished low lives will compare an Omotola’s achievements with a gennys! Are you kidding me? Apart from the fact that Omotola has won many awards before a Genevieve stared in a one line part is one. That omotola is MARRIED ( yes I said married) and has kids in wedlock is Five! Most of the people running their mouths on social media downplaying marriage come and see them at camps sweating and screaming their future patners to walk their way. Pretenders! Even if genny won’t Marry is she respectable as a baby mama? Most baby mamas we even know their baby fathers! Don’t even get me started on who has more award locally and internationally or whose MOST RESPECTED worldwide. Those of you always ranting on social media are either doing it out of solidarity or to give yourselves succor ( those In same position as her) . Women jealous of fellow succesful women from 1901. Smh! One was even counting endorsements! Really? That’s achievements to you? Like omotola dosent have many endorsements , she dosent rant about them obviously. Looking at these ladies, the biggest show off has always been Genevieve , trying to show off material things and deceiving many of you without knowing her true source of income but some are hating on omotola who actually only post work and humanitarian works? What has genny done for anyone? And don’t give me the silent giver rant…she wasn’t silent showing off designer bags and holidays… Incredibly missed priorities people show in this side of the world.
    Omotola is in a class all by herself! That is the truth. None of them even comes a mile close!
