As followers of celebrity Naija News in the country, many of us believe that maybe there is a Genevieve Nnaji husband locked up somewhere away from prying eyes.
A foreign man, comfortable to live in the shadow of a woman he loves but has no public claim over. I don’t think such men exist, who is comfortable becoming a woman’s husband even when their marital status is being denied by his constant absence.
We understand that she is one of the most private Nigerian female actors in the industry but is there any valid reason to conceal her love story with such an iron fist?
The last i checked, love is to be celebrated.
The thing with privacy is that nobody really knows anything. Even things many would consider obvious, most times are just products of fancy assumptions at best.
Just like the various rumors that became news headlines on most blogs about Genevieve Nnaji being a Lesbian.
Malicious lies and gossips is a rampant reality especially in the lives of those celebrities bold enough to care less about public opinions.
No matter the headlines, they mute the social media interruptions and focus on not allowing anybody into their private space.
This is exactly how it is with Genevieve Nnaji. People are willing to concoct fake stories about the celebrity and all they need is for her to be in the right place and circumstance. And they have a story to tell.
The whole idea of Genevieve Nnaji husband hiding somewhere is the major theme on many blog posts on the internet.
The search for Genevieve Nnaji husband brought awareness to AJ Cham. A white male that shared a photograph with the actress.
And that was all it took for the rumor of a secret marriage setting the internet ablaze.
People read the different and conflicting rumors on the same matter and believed the trash.
As months would later prove. The man is friends with many Nigerian celebrities and is a popular promoter.
According to news reports on the matter, it was revealed that A J Cham is a known Tourist and Promoter, Based in California. According to the gist, AJ Cham and Geneveive has been friends since 2014, and he has also played the role of Promoting all her Movies on his page.
But They are Not married, the white guy in question is a married man with a son, His wife’s name is Jojo Cham.
But yet, these Nigerian blogs did not waste time in making a post based on a single photograph.
It is that bad!
Over here in Nigeria, getting married is considered a very big achievement. So much that, it doesn’t matter how successful you are in other areas of your life.
Until marriage comes, the other blessings are considered incomplete.
Genevieve Nnaji is a big name in the movie industry. Which also means that she is capable of self preservation as a human through wealth she has acquired and connection she has made overtime.
But it means little to the Nigerian mind that cannot accept the idea of a woman not having a husband especially when it is long overdue.
But that is not the general mindset. People are beginning to wake up to the fact that some people want different things in life.
That some want marriage while others don’t. That some want marriage and kids while others want the marriage but not the kids that should come with it.
I think it is time we accept the fact that maybe Genevieve Nnaji fall into one of those strange categories of people who want something different from what is considered normal.
And that it is okay.
She is a single mother and has always been since before fame took over her life and made her a brand that the public wants to configure to fit certain description.
Like a MARRIED WOMAN!
It is time we accept the fact that she is an achiever. And learn to celebrate her greatness without need to call upon the cultural need to be somebody’s wife before she can be considered complete.
She is making progress and the world is taking notice and that is a good thing.
We have a lot of wives outside and inside Nollywood but not even those beautiful ones have a timeline of success like Genevieve who in 2011, was honoured as a Member of the Order of the Federal Republic by the Nigerian government for her contribution to Nollywood.
Her directorial debut movie, Lionheart, in 2019 became the first Netflix Original from Nigeria, and first Nigerian submission for the Oscars.
Now that is a great achievement. One that she would be remembered for whether or not she decides to get married one day.
The search for Genevieve Nnaji husband is not directly our problem and it is would be nice that blogs every stop with the false news of a marriage that is yet to become reality.
