Actress Genevieve Nnaji has said she will retire from acting when she becomes too old and weary to carry on.
She said this during an interview with Punch Newspapers where she also shared the reason for her absence in the movie scene. "I guess I haven't found the right script yet. Creativity and depth are the qualities that I look out for in a script. So said, I am constantly watching out for the kind of stories I take part in.'
She also expressed her support for the 'New Nollywood' where quality is now more important than quantity, describing it as beneficial to the industry, "I am among the people who advocate for the improvement of the industry. I am in support of movies that show a great deal of professionalism and creativity.
Having practiced my art in international and professionally produced stories like 'Ije', 'Mirror boy' and 'Tango with me', I don't think I can return to the blandness and mediocrity that characterized Nollywood in the past."
Concerning her future plans, she said "For the coming year, there are couple of things in the works but I can't reveal them at this stage. Something is definitely coming up, hopefully before the end of the year."
