Genny, one of the popular faces on the Iroko TV-produced series, Husbands of Lagos, made this known in an interview in which she took a trip down memory lane.

“”I joined the actors guild of Nigeria the Enugu chapter at the age of 18 whilst in the university. I had also been really good with the arts, literature and English and participated in plays while in secondary school. I saw acting as beautiful and fascinating and I wanted to join up, I remember I had to borrow money to register as I couldn’t tell my parents about it then and the guild wouldn’t let me audition without being a member. I was mighty excited about it, I couldn’t believe I was sharing the screen with my idols and role models, people I looked up to even if it was little roles I got then, we used to call it “executive wakapass.”

Continuing: “My parents didn’t approve of my acting when I started, they didn’t want me to spiral out of control but they’ve come around now, and mum keeps asking me of the movies I’ve done that she can watch now.”

Genny who has acted alongside Bobby Obodo, Bolanle Ninalowo, Kenneth Okolie and Desmond Elliot amongst others, said she has resolved never to quit acting.

Her word: “I don’t think anything else will make me quit entertaining God willing, certainly not marriage… I pray God gives an understanding and accommodating person in the first place else I can’t be with him.”
