Nollywood actress, Genevieve Nnaji has often been described as the queen of Nollywood, and with the large number of men who have confessed to having huge crushes on her, it is only right to also crown her the Queen of Hearts. There must be something about the ebony-hued innocent looking damsel from Mbaise, Imo State for many of her colleagues’ fantasies to revolve around her.
“Perhaps it’s her public conduct? It is pertinent to note that though the mother-of-one who has been in the limelight for quite a while, she doesn’t have much scandals compared to her contemporaries who have been engulfed by controversies. Or maybe it’s her beauty; graceful elegance that always sets her apart in a crowd.“While we may never know what it is, we will take a look at some of the famous stars who have had, and still have crushes on the ‘Ije:The Journey’ star.
Honestly, I’m not dating Genevieve. Let me clear the air now. I never had a crush on her.
‘Genevieve is my crush. When we were together at an event recently, I told her that. I like petite woman who I can ‘possess.’ However, I know I can’t get her because there are some political issues involved, but if she’s willing to be mine, I’ll drop anything for her…if she agrees to marry me today, we’ll do the wedding tomorrow in a quiet way, because I don’t like elaborate weddings. It’s supposed to be a quiet affair.’
‘My Woman, My Everything’ and Genevieve’s picture was one of the first he put up on Instagram to promote the song. Of course, his action was quickly translated to mean that he has the hots for the screen gem, and he hasn’t come out to deny that since then.
‘Genevieve Nnaji is my crush. I will give anything to have her. I can’t rule out dating her because nothing is impossible. It should be noted that Phyno repeatedly chanted Genevieve’s name in his album,’No Guts, No Glory.’
‘Genevieve is everything in a woman, I’m so crazy about her. She is single, I’m single, and I want to date her.’
‘I really had a crush on Genevieve until I met her and I realized she was my aunty. I love her. When I was a kid, I loved watching her movies. I met her when I was with my older uncles, they told her to come meet their boy (me) and I said ‘Good evening ma’. It is all good though, I still love you Genevieve,’
He once confessed that he has a crush on Genny during a TV programme. I wouldn’t even make out with her, I will just stand in the elevator very close to her and soak up her aura. Like, is she an angel or a real human being?’
‘If I was to get trapped in an elevator with someone, it would be Genevieve Nnaji.’ He has reportedly proclaimed his love for Genny to his friends on many occassions.
Banky W once confessed this much in an interview saying, ‘I tried (to have her) but Genevieve is Genevieve. I had a big crush on her at one point but now, we are really cool friends.’
