It appears that serious fights looms between the top Nollywood celebrity sweethearts Genevieve Nnaji, Rita Dominic and Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde.
This speculation reared its head after an Instagram check showed that “Lionheart” star, Genevieve Nnaji has unfollowed her fellow screen stars, Rita Dominic and Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde.
The check also showed that two A list actresses are still following Genevieve but no one knows what could have prompted Genny to unfollow them.
As for Genevieve and Omotola, we all know there has always been a bad blood between them. recall from Omotola response when asked why she is nt close friends with Genevieve in a question and answer session on Instagram still shows that the battle of supremacy between top actresses Genevieve Nnaji and Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde still lingers on. it has been dragged for many years, before they played alongside each other in the award winning movie, Ije, a development that made people to conclude that both parties have let the sleeping dog lie.
It was believed that the two movie stars have become friends when the National President of Actors’ Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Ibinabo Fiberesima stepped into all the grievances between the actresses shortly after her inauguration.However, investigations show that the beautiful Nollywood actresses are still not friends. Recall that Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde was named Most Influential Nigerian by Time Magazine early this year.
As it could be, Actors’ Guild of Nigeria (AGN), the guild where the actress has remained loyal to for many years decided to celebrate and honour her. Guess what? Genevieve Nnaji was not only absent from the event but also close friends disclosed that she was angry for the accolades showered on Omotola. Sources say the Imo born screen diva is still angry with the organisers of the event till today. Again, the talented actress, Ms. Genevieve was among the lucky Nollywood practitioners who were honored on Wednesday November 27, 2013 at Grand Awards of Nollywood @20, a situation that has been questioned by many people from Omotola’s camp.
According to them, Genevieve is not supposed to be honored for her contributions in movie industry without Omotola’s name appearing on the same list. “Omotola’s name was omitted.” They say. There are strong speculations that Omotola’s name was intentionally omitted from the event to bring Genevieve Nnaji back. “The two ladies are putting guild heads into serious problems, because if you are honoring one of them, the other will want same or there will be issues. Most times, you cannot carry two of them along at the same time.
Omotola was named Times Magazine’s Most Influential Nigerian not Genevieve and AGN did the right thing by honoring her. So, was the idea anyway close to telling the AGN head not to honor such positive development? They should help others to help themselves,” a source who begged anonymity said.
In most spheres of life, rivalry is a common phenomenon, which cannot be ruled out for anything. Talk about sports, business, and every other sector, it abounds everywhere. But when envy starts to creep in, that is when it becomes deadly and unhealthy. In the world of soccer today, it is an obvious truth that Lionel Messi and Christano Ronaldo are rivals, who also play for rival clubs in Spain.
As some pundits say, one of them must have been questioning God why he created the other in his own generation. But to lovers of the football game, the rivalry between the two soccer stars has made the game very interesting today. Both of them try to outshine the other when they are both on the field of play. This is evident in the records each of them tries to break, especially if the other person is the holder of the record.
In fact, as Nigeriafilms.com learnt then, both parties always askied organisers of shows if the other person would also be coming and if the answer was in the affirmative, the person concerned would avoid the event. When both of them featured in the award-winning film, ‘Ije’, the producer of the movie talked about how difficult it was for her to work with the two stars. Those who knew about the production of the film said that Omotola and Genevieve almost practically avoided each other and that after they play their respective roles in the film, they did not talk to each other and that they left the set immediately.
So, it was good news for fans of both Omotola and Genevieve when they heard that the two pretty actresses had sheathed the sword and had embraced peace. Shortly after that, both of them were spotted together at events, and they were seeing talking and smiling at each other. In fact, things were going on smoothly between the two talented actresses until recently, when Nigeriafilms.com was reliably informed that the actresses have started avoiding each other again.
A source close to Omotola and Genevieve informed us that both movie stars have resumed their rivalries. “Genevieve now asks if Omotola is invited to any function she is invited to and if the answer is in affirmative, she would just tell you she would not be available,” the source, who craved for anonymity told Nigeriafilms.com. We also learnt that Omotola does the same thing whenever she is invited for an event that she feels might involve her ‘arch rival’.
