Nollywood actress Genevieve Nnaji has disclosed that she is not so desperate for marriage as some people might think- saying she believes the right person will walk in at the right time.
The 36-year-old mother of one told Encomium Magazine that she is currently too busy to think about marriage- because it is just not a huge part of her life at the moment.
She said she is not concerned about being single, but will wholeheartedly embrace marriage when she finds her Mr. Right.
“I am not bothered being single, companionship is great but the fact that I am working and I am busy keeps my mind busy. If you are busy, you would not bother about things that are not there, I will rather appreciate the ones that are there. Also, I will get married when he finds me.”
The award-winning actress also opened up on why she took a break from the movie industry; and also gave details on why she opted to start producing her own movies after so many years in the Nigerian movie industry.
“Yes you have not seen me in any film but it is not my doing. I read at least three to four scripts a week for the past five years. That is to show you how bad it is. I am very careful when it comes to what I take part in. There is so much or nothing you can do to convince me. I have to love a story so that I can bring it to life because a story needs to entice, the character needs to be appealing and then, you are one with it. With that, it becomes very easy to be a good actor.
“I chose to be an actress. Acting was what I had always wanted to do. I don’t think that I ever imagined myself producing a film. I love acting. If the Nigerian movie industry was as stable as it should be, I probably would have been on the set of a movie every day of my life and not be bothered about what goes on behind the camera. So it is a matter of choice and preference,” she said.
