The profile of Nollywood actress and producer, Omoni Oboli has been on the rise since she featured in Anchor Baby and Figurine. It wasn’t just Omoni’s profile that received a boost, a rumour that won’t go away also surfaced. A rumoured ‘beef’ (animosity) with star actress, Genevieve Nnaji, that has persisted for years and which they are not willing to address.
In a recent visit to the corporate office of iCampus Newspaper, Omoni opened up “I can’t place my fingers on when the supposed “beef “started but one thing I know is that, there is no problem between Genevieve and I . We did not have any issue or problem whatsoever.We are not enemies, neither are we friends. We are colleagues, a senior one at that, we greet each other when we see; it is not like we visit each other at home.”
Speaking on the real cause of the rumoured animosity, Omoni who recently became a director and producer said “ I acted a movie , Anchor Baby, the director (Lonzo Nzekwe) of the movie granted an interview and said Omoni Oboli is the best actress in Nigeria. Some bloggers lashed on it and said Omoni Oboli is better than Genevieve and Omotola. The next thing was that people started writing about a supposed ‘beef ‘with her. I cannot get the reason they didn’t write about beef with Omotola. In my opinion, someone somewhere was just being mischievous. I have absolutely no problem with her, and I believe she has no problem with me.”
The full story of the beef between Omoni and Genevieve is in the current edition of icampus newspaper which will hit the stands soon.
