Genevieve Nnaji returns to IG amid rumoured mental breakdown
By James Ojo
Genevieve Nnaji, the ace Nollywood actress, has returned to Instagram — a few hours after she deleted all her posts on the platform.
The film star has been in the public eye since she unfollowed everyone on Instagram, sparking rumours that all might not be well with her.
Concerns over her safety among fans heightened on Monday when she took down all her posts on the platform.
A blog had also claimed she was battling mental issues.
But in the early hours of Wednesday, the actress shared a short video of herself painting via her Instagram story.
In the clip, she could be seen in a serene environment with smiles etched on her face during the painting session.
The actress has not addressed why she removed all her posts. But many people believe her latest post was to douse the tension generated by her recent action on Instagram.
In March, Nnaji had reflected on mental health, arguing that it has a lot more to do with spiritual than physical.
The Nollywood star gained prominence with her role as a child actor (8) in the then-popular television soap opera ‘Ripples’.
She has received several awards and nominations for her works — some of which include the Best Actress of the Year Award at the 2001 City People Awards and the Best Actress in a Leading Role Award at the 2005 AMAA awards.
Her movie, ‘Lionheart,’ was selected by the Nigerian Oscars Selection Committee (NOSC), as Nigeria’s submission for the best international feature film category of the 2020 Oscars.
