Veteran actress Genevieve Nnaji is starring in the British drama “Farming” alongside Kate Beckinsale, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Damson Idris.

The film which is being shot in the U.K. and Nigeria started production in August and is being directed Nigerian-British writer and director Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje.

The film is based on Adewale’s autobiographical story, “Farming.” The script was developed at the Sundance Film Institute and chronicles his own coming-of-age story growing up fostered by a white working-class family in the U.K.

Genevieve has shared a few photos of herself on set, in her trailer:

      Lol. They’re gonna call you a hater but I actually agree. I haven’t seen her movies in forever, but even the ones I’ve seen in recent times her roles are usually very predictable.

      She’s still BEAUTIFUL for days though, and is Agung backwards.

      I totally agree! It’s not hating at all, she’s a beautiful woman but truly overrated! Glad she’s onto smth …really glad! Not every criticism is laced with hate guys, y’all chill …much love

      Some people think so like my sister. I think she’s one of the better Nigerian actresses, not my personal favourite but she’s watchable and entertaining.

    Well it could also be lack of directing in Nollywood….. Lets see the outcome of this one. In half of a yellow sun, she was not so bad.

    I’m impressed with Gene. I’m impressed with Gugu darling, and most of all the director: Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje!!!!!

    Hmm since it’s autobiographical, will there be elements of racism or colorism? I’m looking forward to this!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Ngozi

      October 11, 2017 at 4:30 pm

      Dear Tunmi, what has Adewale directed that impressed you? Or do you just jump up and down because someone is from abroad? The story is well published online. If the director impresses you that much, you should know his work!

    • tunmi

      October 11, 2017 at 6:37 pm

      Ngozi, kindly go hug a transformer.

      But before that:
      1. That the movie is being directed by a Nigerian is awesome news. I was excited to see Dope for that same reason.
      2. That the movie is being directed by a guy I’ve seen in other films (not as a main character but as a supporting one) is even more awesome because that screams BAWSE to me.

      So yeah, you can go back to that transformer now.

    • Ngozi

      October 11, 2017 at 7:20 pm

      The Transformer says it is busy hugging you so it is not available for me. When you are done go collect your wages from Genny & Co. If you are impressed or excited that a Nigerian is directing a film, maybe that is what you need to say. But if you are impressed with the director, then my guess is you have seen some of their directing. And if you are so impressed with the director, then a quick search online will tell you what the film is about because it is not a secret. Unless of course you simply want conversation and comments around the post as part of your contract

    @Ngozi, What is even your own…? Someone said she is impressed about a director. Why you dey drink panadol over it…? Abi are you Lord over her life to determine who she is impressed about or not ?
    Honestly, you really need to go and hug that transformer.!! You get issues !

  15. Awesome

    Genny you deserve this and more. You are a fantastic actress. With the beautiful gugulethu. No wonder omotola had to come up with something to steal your thunder. Cant wait to see the movie.

    • Belema

      October 11, 2017 at 11:55 pm

      Your comment is so senseless and moronic. Invest in a brain, please. What has Omotola got to do with this? I guess you’re her publicist so you know “she came up to with something to steal Genevieve’S thunder”?? Smh. People are so empty headed; it’s not longer shocking. Support whoever you want to support without bringing down another.
