Our own very beautiful screen goddess, Genevieve Nnaji, turned 37 two days ago she has all the beauty, wealth and status to make a good wife, yet she’s still one of the eligible spinsters in Nollywood.
Despite probably being the most popular name in Nollywood, Genny, as she’s fondly called by close
friends is yet to find a man to call her own.
Although she has been romantically linked with some top male celebrities, she hasn’t confirmed the speculations.
The Imo State-born diva who is a single-mother however revealed in an interview that she is still single because she is afraid of divorce. “If I get married, I really want to stay married and staying married is not an easy thing. It means you are completely in tune with your partner.
It means you have found your soulmate because you will have to be able to stand a lot of disappointments that would definitely come but then again you have to learn to forgive,” she said.Well here’s a look at the list of men the acting queen has been linked with since she became a household name.
Genevieve Nnaji dated actor Kunle Coker earlier in her career.
The actress did confirm the two of them dated when she was asked if Kunle brought her into the entertainment industry.
She responded to the question saying, “Yes, Kunle Coker was actually my boyfriend, but he did not bring me into the industry”
Ramsey Nouah’s name has been consistently linked with Genevieve for number of years. Genny has never addressed her relationship with Ramsey.
The two didn’t act many movies together but rumors of an old fling hasn’t been far off.
Addressing rumors of a relationship, Ramsey said
“It is quite funny. I think everybody just tried to marry Genevieve and I before we actually got close. I didn’t shoot much movies with Genevieve like I did with other actresses. I think I shot five movies with her. I have never had such feeling for her. We were just colleagues who wanted you people to feel the way you are feeling now. It tells you that we played our roles very well.”
After much is said and done about this relationship, Genevieve Nnaji has never confirmed she dated D’Banj but the world trust D’Banj enough to trust his “government”.
In 2013, D’Banj said he wanted to marry Genevieve.
“APART FROM THE FACT THAT SHE IS MY FRIEND, SHE HAS BEEN A PART OF MY SUCCESS. THERE IS NO WAY YOU ARE GOING TO TELL MY STORY THAT GENEVIEVE’S NAME WILL NOT COME UP BECAUSE SHE FEATURED IN MY BIGGEST SONG OF ALL TIME, FALL IN LOVE. SO IF E TRUE STORY COMES TO NIGERIA TO INTERVIEW ME, SHE WILL DEFINITELY BE CALLED UPON TO TELL MY STORY,” HE SAID.
As if to confirm that there was more to his relationship with the actress than he had always admitted, D’banj added, “I would love to have Genevieve as my wife.
We never can tell what God plans for us in the future. I have studied her and I realised that anyone that has her as his woman has found himself a treasure. Just like the Bible says, any man who finds a wife, finds a good thing.”
We are yet to hear from Genny on this one.
Genevieve is a mother of a teenage daughter. It is believed she had the child when she was 15 or 16 years old.
It is also understood that her daughter is a result of a relationship with a man she believed she would marry and not a one night affair.
Details of the man or if he is still alive is unknown.
The reported relationship between Patt Attah and Genevieve is a tale of two stories.
Patt admitted he dated Genevieve in an interview with Hearts Magazine back in the day saying he doesn’t regret dating the Nollywood actress…
Genevieve on the other hand says Patt is like a big brother to her and they never dated each other.
