Following the release of Sugar Rush, which saw Adesua Etomi playing the lead role, her performance in the movie has spark reactions from Nigerians as many applauded her.
However, it took a new turn during the weekend as Nigerians took to Twitter to compare Adesua Etomi to Nigeria’s veteran actress, Genevieve Nnaji, who recently became a member of the Oscar Academy.
While many stated that Adesua and Genevieve were equally good, others considered it an insult to compare Adesua to Genevieve.
See reactions below;

I think Adesua is learning from Genevieve.
So, I will be surprised if she answers to your guys’ opinions here.

Putting Adesua in the same category with Genevieve is utmost disrespect.
Genevieve is great.
Adesua is good. https://t.co/NazLkFKvEH
