Stunning Nollywood actress, Genevieve Nnaji has disclosed why she decided to produce her own movie ‘Road to Yesterday’, following her long hiatus.

On why it has taken her a long time to join the growing ranks of new generation movie producers in the country, Genevieve says:

“I chose to be an actress. Acting was what I had always wanted to do. I don’t think that I ever imagined myself producing a film. I love acting. If the Nigerian movie industry was as stable as it should be, I probably would have been on the set of a movie every day of my life and not be bothered about what goes on behind the camera. So it is a matter of choice and preference.”

On marriage.

Marriage does not seem to be in her agenda yet, asked when she would finally take the plunge, the actress replies that contrary to speculations, she has not ruled out marriage. But that she would make up her mind as soon as she meets the right person.

“I haven’t found the right man yet. When he comes, I’ll get married,” she says.

  1. Babe, there is no right man, though, his wish is ur command but, u can make him right on ur own way, during courtship before marriage but, just be careful shaa.

  2. Am sorry 2 say but u might just end up single if u re waiting 4 d right man cos dere is no such thin as a right man,we ve alll got our bad sides as nobody is perffect,as long as u both love each odas,God ll help u make every oda tin right,I wish u luck in ur search

  3. Dnt worry my sis, d right one will come wen Jesus comes down from heaven okay. Continue ur search, mtcheew right man ko, wrong man ni. Beta take d idiot from d left to d right

  4. They is no right man…..just find the one that care,love and respect you!!!life is too short,find the wrong man and make him right

  5. God will surely give you ur hrt desire.sweetie u r blessed u hv a daughter, d right man will surely cme. We still hv sm gud men (Bt nt 100%)God will bring him to u. U r angle.

  6. The question is, are you a right woman? Bc you can only hv a round peg fix to a round hole. You cannot be wrong n wish to have what is right. So look inwards you all that think there is no right guy.

  7. My dear, eeeeeh dont even of having one. Men r just gud when they want u, but afterwards they see like old okada……. so sister move on.

  8. My dear,just make d right decision 4 urself ok.But be careful,and dnt fail 2 pray whenever anyone comes,with dat u wil knw d right one, because i knw every woman has her own husband, i.e the right one 4 her.

  9. Naxo gurlz dey talk alwayz;;; hav nt found d right person yet;;,n there ar many guyz out there single, lukin for gurlz 2 marry,buh huna go say huna no lik dem;;;until huna go carry huna enemy cum ouz;;;;mcteeeeew,,,

  10. Why waiting for the right man when you have a grown-up girl? The father should be the right man. Stop ridiculing yourself in the media.

    • @Ijeoma u are full of hate!!! Haba!!!! Are u not a woman? She made a mistake at 16. What’s the big deal? How many girls are virgin at 16? Is countless abortions better? Have u been with ur first man all ur life? Ridiculing herself cos she waits on God for the right man? Pls be sensitive!

    • Who knows maybe the guy has moved on a long time ago! Dats y teenage love is not worth it pls, most lead to sex and pregnancy. That was what happened to her. Youth should always learn to wait for dem to get a Lil bit matured before they commit themselves to a relationship. Teenage “love” isn’t worth it

    • Pinky what ever that is your name, you are such an idiot, fool,Facebook is not for brainless idiots like you, get that into your small brain I have every right to my opinion, crash if you don’t like it.

    • Y r u fighting hre? Do u xpect Genevieve to gv u sumthng 4 dis, if her comment is bad dis is nt d ryt way to aproach hr, say ur own opinion, dis is her own thougt.. stop quarelling 4 sum1 wu doesn’t even knw uu..

    • Ijeoma Victor. Life is not like that. She may not even know what true love is then, she need to settle down with a man she really loves and also love her back. That’s the prayer of every woman.

    • Ijeoma Victor. You must be a very rude person. What brought about the insult now? Be warn, you don’t insult people you don’t know. I haven’t insulted you. Just be careful is a warning. Period!

  11. Well, i think you should find the father of your daughter. Yes it may appear that he did something wrong in the past but remember if some things didnt happen in our lives the other things wouldnt have happened. His actions and deeds planted a courage in you which brought change in your life. Now you are comfortably rich and famous. Now think back if he didnt do what he did would you have take the courageous step into the pursuit of a life changing career? . Forgive him and embrace him. You will see how beautiful things will turn out to be. But that is if he is still single oooo. Thanks beauty.

  12. Nwa di mma,and to all this haters,it’s not about getting married but staying married besides majority of you guys don even have d balls to approach her and you guys also forgot that this lady’s heart has been broken as a teenager,let’s respect her emotions

  13. Wait till you clock 60years of age. Full of pride and ego. Age will soon tell on you. Sooner or later, that market will finish.

  14. There’s no right man my dear. Even those that called themselves born again. All of them are rubbish. Just pick one and asked God for help. I am suffering in the name of marriage

  15. I’m NOT making publicity for you in anywise.

    But I speak as one that has the right to TELL you to go and be rightly completed according to the law of nature.

    You & the person, WITH whom you suppose to rightly be, shall NOT be hidden to each other ANY LONGER until you find reliable rest for yourself.
    This has been SPOKEN!

    I SPEAK AS IF I SPEAK TO MY DAUGHTER, and any of my children. I love each of them SO much than my necessary life!

    It is better NOT to have a companion for life THAN to have a wrong one.

    When a good UNION is built, it has unspeakable impacts on a nation. IT IS AS REAL AS THAT!

    But I TELL you, “GO & PROSPER!” As you desire. Unchallengeably! In the Name of Jesus!


  17. As if there is one sumwhere. Ask ur self if u ar d right woman. U beta stop waitin cos u might end up with d wrong man in d cause of watin 4 d right one

  18. Just be patient and put everything to God because Him alone can fulfil your heart desire my friend. All the best is all I wish for you

  19. “Right man”???I have always wonder if those two word are not the fabrication high society world you dreamily float on?Beauty sorry to mentioned have you even contemplated if your father is the “right man” for your mother? Sorry I don’t mean to sound hash just an imagination. I suggested you take a courageous step this time act honestly be ready to be a wife and lots of potential husband is at the waiting. Just a concern fan who may sound blunt.Note the beauty of a women is like the morning flowers

  45. Married or not married my dear, your joy and peace counts. Mr Right remains the best life partner because he will love and adorn you. For those saying age is not on her side, may be your God is not the Omnipotent and all powerful God who at His time make all things well. Most High God is ageless. A thousand years to Him is like a day. Genny love, do not marry just anything that feels that he is a man. Your own will locate you

  49. You know yourself so do what pleases you pretty one. Just be careful in your dealings. Too many preachers writing you history fake or true I pray thee you gonna make victory. You got all for a man to mingle with. Love on its own, is as gentle as a dove. But, we operators always placed its on stove. If you truly care for love then, kindly visit the land of low loyalty. Believe me, there you gonna get it in full. You never fade in my eyes. Don’t get drunk over the world for the world as well won’t ride on you. God is with you.

  50. @miracle clever urenwa u should be crashing wen mama and papas are talking. wetin concern igbo matter for here. If I’m to be fb I’ll delete u.

  57. You have to be right before looking for the right man…..If you are looking for the perfect man then you will have to wait for the coming of Jesus Christ.
