Nollywood actor, Femi Branch, who’s currently celebrating 25 years of being an actor, has shared some of the great moments he has had acting alongside industry colleagues.
Narrating his experience acting with multi-award winning actress and Etisalat ambassador, Genevieve Nnaji, the 45-year-old actor said on Instagram:
“LET ME TALK ABOUT” – (GENEVIEVE NNAJI) – My first and only working experience with @genevievennaji till date was in her very first Muson stage performance way back in d 90s. Tho many felt she might have taken the stage for granted then which might have affected her performance (maybe I thot so then too ?) but there’s no denying the fact that what she lacked in presence then on that stage, she made up for with a whole lotta heart! We were feeling cool back then cos it was like we stage actors versus the screen goddess herself! But she was the one that walked off with the largest cheque, so the joke was on us! What I loved about her was dat, at the end of the day, she was just Genny. She was herself, annoyingly adorable and almost making me miss my lines while I was scoping her… c amebo pple don dey open ear ? #FemiBranch25YearsActing #femibranch
