The Queen is Back, and She’s Here to Slay
After a mysterious absence that left fans wondering if the queen had abdicated her throne, Nigerian superstar Genevieve Nnaji has made a momentous return to the public eye—and what better stage than the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) for her grand re-entry! Not only did she attend the festival, but she was also there for the premiere of her much-anticipated new film, ending a five-year hiatus that had everyone guessing.
The Look that Captured a Thousand Cameras
Clad in a black dinner outfit that effortlessly combined classic glamour with contemporary style, Genevieve Nnaji was nothing short of a vision as she walked the red carpet. Completing her ensemble was a sleek black purse that seemed as if it was designed exclusively to match her outfit. But it was her Afrocentric hairstyle that truly stole the show, making an indelible statement that screamed both “roots” and “royalty.”
