Genevieve on Y Magazine - A Natural Beauty

Genevieve Nnaji -my one and only sweetheart whom i call "Genny" is featured on this month’s edition of Y! Magazine themed The Nigerian Dream issue.

“…this edition explores the wide polarities of living and growing in Nigeria – on the one hand, a country where dreams are born and where you can enjoy a full, rich life of fulfilment and excitement; and on the other, a country that gives so little and takes so much.

“It speaks both to the ideals we aspire to and the realities we live with as Nigerians,” says its editor, Chude Jideonwo. “Juxtaposing powerful images of loss, of want and of need with glamorous shoots, sparkling editorials and of course a delightful mishmash of the season’s pop culture highlights. It’s a full meal!” – Sola Fasasi with Y! Magazine

If you have access to Y! Magazine where you are located - Go grab your copy (or two and give one to a friend).

We love you Genny. Muah

There is Nothing Worth Reviewing, Thus MIA.......

I have been getting a lot of emails everyone asking why i have been missing in action. Well there isnt much out lately for me to review. As you all know, i am allergic to reviewing crap movies. Yes every single release out there (i told yall nothing passes me - as long as its released on the US market at the NYC depot, i got it) i have watched them all (maybe 12 movies in all) and endured all the headache on your behalf, and NO, i will not review them. They are not worth a dime. One or two i will review later when i have time.

When producers and directors finally decide to put out the good movies deemed excellent and a classic, I will review them. If it is any consolation, our hunky dories (new actors) have a lot lined up for 4th quarter 2011/2012. I will update you all as i am given permission to.

Oh and for the movie producers who keep putting out crap movies, dont think i have forgotten to name yall crap movies on my left panel under "CRAP ALERT" - i am compiling them all and will list them soon.

Ladies and Gentlemen, save your money to buy great classic movies. Dont throw money away.

ps: Another reason i have been missing in action is cos i have been getting ready to launch my new blog (No! its not entertainment neither is it fashion related- someone needs to think out the box for once-the copy copy is too much) and been quite active in my new hobby of abstract acrylic painting on canvas which i plan to sell. I will announce to you all soon when i launch my new blog for those who are interested, and NO this will not take away from my movie review blogging, i will do both concurrently, and this time find some avenues of making some money out of this hobby, after 3 yrs of doing what i love -I am learning of new ways to benefit from spending my time blogging .

Also I bought my self a new DLSR Camera and loving it so much (great investment), I will post the pic here soon (its a NIKON D3100) . I bought it purposely for my new blog (and No! its not a photography blog neither LOL)

I get on twitter more often too so if you wanna chat join me at

I am Utterly Saddened by Sam Loco Efe's Demise

He was one of my favourite - ultimate favourite. There are 4 people who make me laugh to rib stiffiness in Nollywood movies and Sam Loco Efe was my number #1 followed by Patience Ozorkwor, Nkem Owoh and Chiwetalu Agu.

Its amazing - i was just watching his movie last week and he made me laugh so much i said, I swear if this man passes someday many years from now and I am home, even though i may not be invited, i will gate crush my way in and I will definately go pay my last respect - cos i love him so much..

I am watching all his movies all week - to remember all the times he made me laugh and I hope for his funeral - to celebrate his life, they also showcase some of his funny skits, I am not home now and i cannot attend but i hope the funeral is well organised -I will write my own eulogy of him and post it here of how happy he made me watching Nollywood movies. I will never forget Sam Loco, i respected and loved him so much. In my head he was like a father or grandfather who told stories to make me laugh.

I am sure all of Nollywood is sad - especially Patience and Nkem who acted with him so many times. No nollywood death has pained me as much as this man. I was so numb yesterday when i heard it. I hope ALLL of the entertainment industry back home go pay their last respect to this man. He is a very special man and I am sure he will be making those angels laugh their ribs off.

My favourite thing he does is when he swears and he touches his finger to his tongue - to the ground and to the sky and say "maka chukwu" - The last movie i saw was "Sweet Patotoe" - watch this funny scene as he encourages his (son) Nkem Owoh to commit suicide - he said "Its a fundamental human rights"

Please lets respect and love the ones who are living and not wait until they are gone. Sam like Patience Ozorkwor i always felt was one of the most underrated actors in Nollywood. Despite he joked a lot - he was a very excellent actor in my opinion and I tear up as i typed this cos i know i will miss him immensely.

RIP Uncle Sam Loco Efe. You will be surely missed by many.
