Definitely, this thespian neeeds no introduction. Genevieve Nnaji is a house hold name, a world class performer and one of the good faces of Africa's largest film industry. She speaks to Ediale Kingsley on a couple of issues at Club 10, Surulere, Lagos.
MANY of your fellow dark-skin female fans are sure glad of your successful career as someone who isn't light-skin, coming from a country that is thought to have the world's highest percentage of women using skin-lightening agents. What's your take on this?
People need to definitely erase the mindset that any other colour is better than your colour. I think it's a complex. I am dark-skinned, I know who I am inside, forget the skin. I think darker-skinned women should really focus on the inner beauty and not allow somebody else's complex or insecurities to overshadow their confidence.
Why are you still single?
If I get married, I really want to stay married and staying married is not an easy …

Image

Produced under the stables of Dabz Movie Production, the film features list of professionals like the actress herself, Yvonne Jegede alongside Shirley Igwe, Kenneth Okolie, Gift Okeke among other acts.

Due to the fact that drug addiction has taken over her entire life, her child went on to suffer neglect and abuse in her hands. It became an appalling situation that one could not manage seeing, but to pity the child,” she said.
Promising to be different, Dabby stressed…

Image
Actor-cum-model, IK Ogbonna is a toast of many ladies, who keep admiring him for his good looks and acting prowess. He is one of the new generations of actors sweeping ladies off their feet.

When Pastor Chris Oyakhilome 'Ran', Preach In Church With Face-cap

Image
Chris Oyakhilome, the founder of the Believers Love World Ministries aka Christ Embassy, might be moving on from his marital troubles as he is spending his time getting fit in South Africa.
Enjoying the ambiance of the cool atmosphere of the coastal country, the man of God was in the company of other pastors as they ran the fields. Jumping hurdles, the men of God shared equality time to bond and get rimmed to shape.
Moving on, his joined other church members and preached in the cool wears of the track and field - joggers and wind breakers. However, noticeably the man of God had on his face-cap while preaching from the pulpit. Many faithfuls have raised the questions of why would the man of God have his cap on as against the 1 Corinthians 11 verse 4 (Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head.)

“King kong believes I’m too much, who is this woman? So, until they can come together, you the lady, you are submissive…you cannot have a husband and 24 hours you are on locations, everyday you travel round the world, next tomorrow you are in one party in London and you say you are a married woman.

A United State base Pastor, Olusola Fabunmi, has condemned the invitation of Mavin artiste, Korede Bello to sing his popular hit "Godwin" in a church.
This call was coming after the fast rising singer was a guest invited to perform his hit track song at the Harvesters International Christian Centre, in Lekki.
Read Pastor Fabunmi's thoughts and decide if he's right
Korede Bello is a young man I love personally, and have nothing against him. But its written here, that when we chose the way of the world, we have clearly chosen our paths; becoming an enemy of God.
Please, there must be a clearly defined boundaries of who sings, and /or ministers in churches.

Image
The name 2Face Idibia is attached to different personalities. While some people see him as a talented singer, others tend to judge him based on his personal or private life. But whichever way, the Benue State-born singer is a young living legend in the Nigerian music industry. It is no news that the father of seven did not finish his tertiary education, which he admitted and sang about in one of his songs shortly after he went solo.

9ice Becomes Special Adviser to Governor of Oyo State

Image
Consistency actually pays off for those that persist and stays focus. This is the case of singer 9ice, who has stayed focus in his political ambition despite not winning but very happy for making an attempt.
The singer had joined the All Progressive Congress last year 2014, to contest for the seat of Ogbomosho Federal constituency but lost at the party’s primaries. Though he was not angry about it, but he was happy with himself to have made an attempt and was in high hopes for the future.
Well, the future has come looking for him after several criticisms about his ability to lead others considering his pedigree in the entertainment industry and moral standards. The singer was surprised when Governor of Oyo state, Abiola Ajimobi, called him into his cabinet.
9ice was recently made one of the special advisers to the governor and will be resuming duty any time soon.
