So far in 2020, Genevieve Nnaji’s Instagram has featured little less glam and more indoor beauty. Who is to blame her after all? We are all being careful not to contract COVID-19. That is not to say the Nollywood boldface has retired from productivity. Her elongated quarantine has made her tackle a new play station: Painting.
With almost 8 million Instagram followers, Nnaji posted a null-makeover photo of herself that has in the background three of her completed art works. All three capture the peace and calm that nature possesses as each piece portrays the inner satisfaction man secures when closer to natural bodies. In line with her art message, Genevieve captioned her post, ”Blessed Sunday”.
In September this year, the ‘Lionheart’ director released a teaser of her new found addiction. In a hoody jacket and snow hat, Genevieve blessed our feeds with a rush video of herself making a painting of a tree that later transforms into a human face in the background. The paintings are not the only things that have taken most of her time this year. More than once in her posted grids, she has featured her puppies alongside that seem to have kept her company in the midst of all the faults the world has faced in 2020.
Mostly away from her home country Nigeria, Genevieve last provided receipts of her Hollywood penetration when she made an appearance in February at the Vanity Fair and Lancôme’s ‘Women in Hollywood’ gala wearing Nigerian fashion brand Odio Mimonet. Prior to that, Genevieve had stepped out for the Essence Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon held at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel inside Beverly Hills.
As a well-respected bastion in the Africa Film Industry, Genevieve’s baby images in the painting fold cannot be categorized as premature. Her potential to become one of the best to ever do it in no time cannot be underrated.
