Genevieve Nnaji and Idris Elba
BN brought you the first photos from the “Beasts of No Nation” premiere last night and we could not help posting this one of Genevieve Nnaji with Idris Elba too.

    Eish Bella naija. But why? Even on a Sunday, you want these “critics” to go in on my girl. You could have captioned the headline differently like ” When Idiris came to town” or ” When the celebs mets Idris. Why make Genny the centre of the headline.? And before anybody goes in, Genevieve posted these pictures on her Instagram. . And that’ is most likely where Bella got them from.

      why not? they are the biggest stars on the red carpet. you people always ‘know’ what Bella should have headlined their articles. If they put another caption someone else will complain. stay positive linda, its Sunday like u said.

      Jenny u look beautiful.

      Linda, you again? You seriously need to get a life already. Is Genevieve paying you? Gosh, perhaps you should be part of BN’s team, that way you won’t have to tell them what to write. Like, how dare you? Such a pathetic pyscho.

    Is Idris this short that short Genevieve is taller?
    He also looks older than I see him in movies.
    And for all the Oshiomholes, see Okonjo Iweala oooo. Go and arrest her now. After she returns to her base you’ll start saying nonsense about her hidding outside Nigeria.

      @ Chi, No, Idris isn’t short. Genny’s standing on a step. Check the previous post on this and you’d see Idris towering over everyone

      Lol at “towering over every one”

    See them… they all showed up for Idris. BONN is a film that can easily be a Nigerian production, but Nigeria has never made a film half that decent. It took a white man to get it made with a Hollywood star and they’ve honoured invites. They will watch the film, take pictures with Idris and forget the film.

    Genevieve is a beautiful woman. Contrary to opinions that state she’s a stiff actress, I think she’s a very good actress. But her comment while promoting her very poorly written and executed feminist film about Oscars put me off by her. She needs to stop being lazy and comfortable with her following and work her ass to the top where she belongs. It’s a shame she has never been in a good film. She’d be damned to mistake Ije, Tango with me or her produced to be a good films. same goes to her pairs.

      It’s none of your business you say, but you still decided to make it your business I.e. eke is your hobby? …and you ran away for shelter or what? As today is Sunday, my prayer for you is that God fills your heart with peace, love, and unlimited happiness, as well as give you the spirit to move on, so you don’t have to wake up everyday filled with so much unforgiveness towards your fellow man.

      Hating on a Sunday… Sad! Osas and Gbenro look great – they are actors so why wouldn’t they be there. Everyone looked great! Can’t wait to see the film.

      And YOU should get a life and stop bashing them on almost every post. And he’s her hubby, not her handbag. What a lousy cretin you are, you ALWAYS have something negative and uncultured to say. Dimwit.

    Beautiful photos. Beautiful people. OkonjoIweala mehn, I dey hail o. The righteous are indeed as bold as a lion. She is all smiles celebrating her son’s book turned into an IDRIS Elba starring movie! Choi… There is no better answer to haters and envious people than to succeed. IDRIS looks so cool. Abeg make i waka go write my own book instead of listening to useless people like Oshiomole and el Rufai whose only work seems to be hating on successful people.

      @ Chi you just echoed my thoughts. The woman is going about her business but wait till she travels out then Oshiomole and el Rufai will start ranting about EFCC wanting to invite her or arrest her or whatever to keep the gullible ones entertained while the economy that she left with clear indices of growth continues to nose dive. By the time the political entertainment by Oshiomole and el Rufai are over, Naira will be like N 300 to the dollar. If not for the SWF this woman insisted on ( for which they Oshiomole, Amaechi, even Fashola) took her to court Nigeria would have been a basket case by now.

      Hmm, she posted as “Anonymous” and you responded to her as “Chi” who is the first commentator? Do you know something we don’t know…like you’re the same person wearing different clothes? Asking for a friend…

      You made a post and replied to your post saying “you just echoed my thoughts?” nwanne m this is sick.

      The pay per post crew is back, this anonymous is the same one that posted like 10 comments on the last topic on Okonjo. You people should at least try and be less obvious…he he he PR things . As for the premiere I don’t know if it’s the pictures or the AC had problems but most of them including Genny look sweaty and their make up is running off

    • Anonymous

      December 13, 2015 at 3:47 pm

      @ fani, sorry to disappoint you but I am a huge fan of OkonjoIweala and I am not hiding it. She remains my ideal of what a Niigerian African woman should aspire to. Why be less conspicuous of haters are so loud in their hate? And I am not paid to be a woman so kapisch. Isn’t it wonderful that intellectual superiority is the name of the game in today’s world. Perhaps it is the threat by a woman like OkonjoIweala to men of lower intellect like Oshiomole and el Rufai that has them hating so much. it must really hurt to see her succeed on so many fronts – we are here celebrating her son’s book turned into a movie … haters can in oshiomole’s voice ‘go and die.’

  12. my best

    December 13, 2015 at 8:29 am

    She will remain my best actress with Nse. but, please, both of you stop the bleaching… you have natural beauty.. REALLY. REMAIN BLESSED! Both of you.

    @Jane Well well,,,,, you don’t find the likes of toke, rukky sanda and ini edo in such events cos they are strictly by invitation and I am so sure they tried to crash the carpet as usual, but were denied access, Lagos social termites. As for Idris Alba he had better cash in on this opportunity and ask Genny out oh, cos once she is out of there she will varnish into her busy world. Super divas like her are hard to catch oh ( Ask dbanj wetin him eye see before genny even smile for am sef). So make e no dey there dey form hollywood hunk cos he ain’t superior to our Genny, Africa’s very own Julia roberts.

    all i see is two fine people they could easily pass for a couple, i don’t know but ikpe etim’s contouring looks like it went really wrong especially with th flash from cameras.

      @ Anon, Oh my goodness! Winch! How did ur eyes catch those? They do indeed look like Genny’s shoes? Just zoomed in. And I thought I was observant. Hmmm! What are U insinuating, Anon?… no wonder, Idris’s beard kinda looks more tussled here than in previous photos. *is all i’m saying* Genny please take ur time o!

      stop being stupid ,idris is d one begging for ad picture

    • oye

      December 14, 2015 at 4:06 pm

      @Huh? Are u for real? Idris Elba beg for a picture from Genny? Can you not see who looks star struck in the picture? It’s obviously Genny who’s looking all star struck, so trust me, Idris didn’t beg for a picture. Genny did. It’s okay if you’re Genny’s biggest fan but don’t twist the obvious.

    Genny famzing on idris Elba so hard like kilode ,she had him flooding on her ig like worrisit , maybe she likes him , maybe has a crush on him , maybe she wants to get at d’banj , maybe she wants to feature him in her new movie (road to tomorrow maybe) or maybe it’s just a publicity stunt but what do I know
