Genevieve Nnaji falls sick in London, battles Flu

Following her encounter with Flu (due to the weather in London),
Movie star, Genevieve Nnaji, was unable to register her presence at the
premier of the well anticipated “half of a yellow sun movie”  in the
London Film Festival premiere, Odeon West End, last weekend.

director of the movie, Biyi Bandele, disclosed this on his Facebook page
hours ago to express how much they missed the movie star and mother of
one, Genny at the premiere. See his message below:
“Just got back from the BFI London Film Festival European premiere of
Half of a Yellow Sun at the Odeon West End. Humbled and moved by the
rapturous reception the audience gave it. It was also great to see the
hardest working actor on our hemisphere, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and the great
John Boyega, and the amazing Babou Ceesay, and the one and only Onyeka
Onwenu. And Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, of course. Without whom… We
missed Thandie, who is on location in Vancouver. We missed Genevieve,
who flew in for the premiere and promptly went down with a flu (mind
yourself o, London weather). What a night though. What a night.” he

Genevieve played “Ms Adebayo” in the highly anticipated movie!
