[Video] Genevieve Nnaji depicts beauty, brain, brawn in movie and music arena

The delectable and ever gorgeous Genevieve Nnaji was born on 3rd of May 1979. She is a Nigerian actress, producer, and director. Before winning the Africa Movie Academy (AMA) Award for Best Actress in a leading Role in 2005 as the first actor to win the award, many people do not know that this beautiful woman paid her dues. She has burnt the midnight oil in the movie industry by working so hard to reach the pinnacle of stardom.

She started acting at a tender age of eight-year-old, starring in the popular TV soap Ripples.

Apart from beauty, Genevieve has brain and brawn as she immerses herself in her roles in any movie she casts.

 Her movie career actually began when she was 19 in 'Most Wanted', when she played one of four daredevil female armed robbers masquerading as men.

 In 2002, she played a fantastic role in the film 'Sharon Stone' (not a biopic of the US actress) in which she played a flirtatious woman. She was fondly called Sharon Stone in those early days of her career.

 In 2011, she was honoured as a Member of the Order of the Federal Republic (OFR) by the Nigerian government for her contribution to Nollywood. Her directorial debut movie, Lionheart, is the first Netflix Original from Nigeria, and first Nigerian submission for the Oscars. The movie was disqualified for having most of the dialogue in English. The movie upped her rating to be Nollywood's first billionaire as she sold the movie to Netflix at N1,385,100,000 ($3.8 million).

Funny enough, several fans did not know she is also a musician.

Her one and only album, it is best remembered for the track 'No More', a love song with lyrics that could be seen as metaphor for the rest of her career: "No more crying oh, No more fighting oh, No more tears oh, I got my freedom, power and more."

Genevieve remains a role model to several female fans who admire her courage, resilience and tenacity.
