We have been receiving insider updates and images of the festivities and stars at the Cannes Film Festival. Ideally, for us at Ladybrille, we would love to see our African stars strut the red carpet like their counterparts in Bollywood and Hollywood. So far, it has not happened. We anticipate it will in the nearest future as the world continues to forge a healthier love relationship with Africa. In the meantime, Ladybrille congratulates Nollywood Actress Genevieve Nnaji who was awarded the ‘Best Breakthrough Performance’ award in Monaco at the Charity Film Festival. The Monaco Charity Film Festival is a yearly Charity Event held in Monaco for the benefit of the poor children around the world. Nnaji received the award for her role as Teema in the recently released Nollywood film ‘Mirror Boy.’
Nnaji, in 2011, has expanded her PR/branding and marketing efforts both on the home front and internationally. Whether she is on the red carpet or granting an interview, she is carving out a brand that if thoroughly well managed and executed can truly make her a household name beyond Africa. She, given her momentum, might very well be the first to strut the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival.
