    Wow, BN you need more critical writers! This is such a big deal for a Nigerian act, yet look at how flippantly you’re reporting it. Pulse (with all their generic formatting did a better job reporting this). I needed to google some Morenikeji to fully understand the scope and magnitude of this representation, and what it means for Genevieve’s career.

    Why should we care about this news? Why is this a big deal for Genevieve? Why is this a big deal for the Nollywood? People need context to understand the extend of news like this. Your pieces need to scratch beneath the surface to be impactful in 2018, it’s such a shame that in 2018 you’re not thinking about how to write thoughtful and analytical pieces.

    What do you want them to say? It is not a big deal o. Forget what vangurd and co are typing.
    When an agency signs you, it means they will help you get jobs. But if you don’t have a good agent, you will just sit on their roster and never get any job. And if you get your own job, they will coman take 20%. She should have gone to a small boutique agency that will have time for her. They’re not even reping her as an actress but producer. Not good. If after 2 years she doesn’t bring anything, they will drop her.
    Genny is smarter than Omotola sha.

      What does Omotola have to do with this news? Pitting women against each other is so 2001, please do better.

      Your unctuous negativity was detecbale after blunt seconds. Getting signed to UTA is a huge deal. Wait and see Gene’s career trajectory.

    @Tim you are so right! BN you also need a proof reader. You do know “cum” while it’s proper English as become more recognised as urban slang for “semen”. Why you would choose to use it in an article like this either is just beyond me.

    Anyway, go Genevieveeee, always knew you would get there, can’t wait to see you in more Hollywood flicks!

      @akama, abegi help me scold Toks and Ekoatheist….LOL!

      So supposedly mainstream “culture” has become so degenerate that folks cannot even use a perfectly fine English term like ‘cum’ (in this context meaning ‘and’). I can just see those two naughties bent over in laughter when Ibe Kachikwu tries to proffer his purported Summa CUM Laude degree from Harvard. LMBAO!!
