Okechukwu Joseph N Genevieve

Nollywood actor, Okechukwu Joseph is currently suffering a major backlash from Genevieve Nnaji’s fans and here’s why.

In a recent interview with The Sun, the actor revealed that he and the screen goddess dated briefly years ago but the relationship had been very short and a big disaster. Okechukwu, who met Genevieve on the set of Mark of the Beast, disclosed that he couldn’t go further in their relationship because he was a virgin.

“Genny and I met and became friends on the set of Mark of the Beast” he said. “Unfortunately, we couldn’t go further because of my funny little ‘virgin’ secret. Not that she solicited or asked for anything but of course, my body language was downright repulsive to that effect and it didn’t take anything for any woman with brains to figure it out.”

Okechukwu Joseph also revealed that the relationship felt like they were ‘in some type of experiment’ but added that he learnt a lot from her within that short period. “She is my kind of woman – classy, clean and confident. She was so full of pragmatic energy and so on-the-go- like woman on a mission. Never ready to play around with stuff she couldn’t put up with. I hope she’s still that way. She has got an incredible story to her glory” the actor added.

The actor, who has not been in the movie scene for years now, confessed that his virginity had hindered him from getting along with his female colleagues. He also recounted how he had almost been raped on set.

Fans of Genevieve have since taken to social media to lambast the actor, calling him an attention seeker and a liar.




Genevieve is yet to comment on the actor’s claims. What do you think?
