Some of the celebrities who attended the event were Senator Florence Ita-Giwa, Betty Irabor, Ali Baba and his wife, Mary, Segun Arinze, Mr. Kool and her boyfriend, Lanre Nzeribe. At the end of the launch, Showbiz and More met her and she had this to say.
“Acting will always be part of me, but as you attain a certain height in your chosen career, it is only natural you want to diversify, show other sides of some of those things that you can do. So, it is not just about entertaining people, but to impart knowledge and that was why I ventured into this”. Adding that: “It is open to all, not just for teenagers. God has been my inspiration and I want to also give thanks to Mrs. Betty Irabor. I knew when Genevieve started 10 years ago. I was one of the first actresses that featured in her first major issues and I have watched it grow under the tutelage of this very strong woman. Looking at the kind of society we come from, where women are perceived only to be seen and not heard, she’s been on it for 10 years. I admire her. She is my mentor, let me not lie to you. When I wanted to start this, I had to meet her for encouragement for almost 6 months and she taught me how to go about it to the very top and I thank God I’m here today. I’m humbled by the turn out. I’m speechless and grateful all the same”.
