Genevieve celebrates 20 years in the movie industry

Veteran Nollywood actress and film maker, Genevieve Nnaji, celebrated two decades in the film sector with a reflective New Year post.
Through her Twitter handle @GenevieveNnaji1, she shared an appreciative message to her fans, which doubled as her New Year message.

Sharing a picture of 'Lion Heart's script, she wrote, "As 2018 comes to an end, I mark 20 years in the art of film making. I am grateful for my life, journey, and growth thus far. I am happy I could celebrate with you through a product that embodied all of me mentally and spiritually, for all of your pleasure. I love you guys! Happy New Year."

Nnaji, who recently premiered her directorial debut, Lion Heart, began acting at the age of 19 in 1998 with the movie, Most Wanted. The 39-year-old won the Africa Movie Academy Award (AMAA) for Best Actress in a Leading Role in 2005, making her the first actress to win the award.

She was also the first actress to bag the Best Actress award, by the Censors Board of Nigeria in 2003. In 2009, she was referred to as the Julia Roberts of Africa by Oprah Winfrey

In 2011, she was honoured with the Member of the Order of the Federal Republic award by the Federal Government for her contributions to Nollywood.
