Genevieve was born May 3, 1979 in Mbaise, Imo state to a royal family. She was born into a family of ten; her father, mother and seven siblings.
She relocated to Lagos at a very young age and she’s been living there ever since. She was enrolled at the Methodist Girls College in Yaba, where she acquired her secondary education and duly obtained her SSCE.

She started her acting career while in school, as part of the requirements of her programme. She duly obtained her B.A (honours) in Creative Arts.
Genevieve has had an incredibly successful career, so far, in Nollywood. In fact, she was honoured by the Federal Government in 2011, when she was conferred with Member of the Order of the Federal Republic (OFR) honour. However, her personal life has always been riddled with controversies. Some of these controversies centre around the identity of her daughter, her marital life/spinsterhood and many more.

While Genny has taken up many roles as a housewife in movies, she is still a revered member in the realm of spinsterhood in real life! There has been rumours regarding the identity of the lucky man in Genevieve’s life. This has remained one of the unsolved mysteries in the Nigerian movie industry.
