Nollywood actor reveals he once dated Genevieve Nnaji
Genevieve Nnaji is one of the few Nigerian celebrities that likes to keep her personal life especially the dating aspect of it from the media and the public but Nollywood actor, Joseph Okechukwu might have just let the cat out of the bag on that one as he claims he and the actress had a short relationship in her early days of acting.
Speaking to The Sun, Okechukwu said he and Genny met on the set of a movie titled Mark of the Beast and became friends. Their friendship allegedly turned to a relationship which the actor claimed was cut short due to his ‘virgin’ problem.
He said, “I had no difficulty mingling. What I had issues with was entangling- copulating.
“And like I said earlier, I wasn’t ready because I was a virgin and I didn’t want to tell anybody. I was always making excuses about why I couldn’t ‘get down.’ In fact, this is one of the reasons my very short relationship with Genevieve was such a disaster.
“This is the first time I am admitting this publicly. Genny and I met and became friends on the set of Mark of the Beast. Of course in her very early days. It was as though we were in some type of experiment. But I learned a lot about her within that short period.”
