Genevieve unveils winner of Act the Part contest
Eighteen-year-old aspiring actress, Bola Suru, has emerged winner of an online acting competition overseen by star actress Genevieve Nnaji. She beat two other finalists, Michael Akan and Chioma Okoye, to the prize of an exquisite makeover and VIP dinner with Genevieve, courtesy of Amstel Malta.
The competition, Act The Part, is an activation for the Amstel Malta brand, which the actress has been contracted to promote.
The deal had required fans to act any role from a selected movie of their choice in just two minutes and upload on the Amstel Malta website.
Announcing Bola, a university admission-seeker, as winner of the competition, Genevieve said the wannabe exhibited undeniable acting skills which shot her to the frontline in the contest, amidst thousands of contestants who sent in videos re-enacting a role from a Nollywood movie of their choice.
The aspiring actress could not contain her joy when she received the news. “I have practically been praying about this since I emerged one of the three finalists. My sister actually found out about the competition and encouraged me to be a part of it. I am so excited about this,” she said.
Apart from winning the competition, hanging out with Genevieve is a dream come true for young Bola. “Genevieve inspires me so much and I really can’t wait to meet her and ask all the many questions I need answers to as it concerns acting as a career,” she said excitedly.
Bola came tops for re-enacting a role from the movie, Broken Heart. Michael’s re-enactment of his role from the movie Ije, which features Genevieve Nnaji, earned him the second position, while Chioma came third for her role in Mirror Boy.
Going memory lane, Genevieve said the passion displayed by the contestants reminded her of her days as an aspiring actress. “I started off my career at the age of eight, so seeing young talents very keen on what they do gives me so much pleasure because I can relate to that really well. I’m very thankful to Amstel Malta for this amazing opportunity and I look forward to meeting Bola Suru. We are definitely going to have a fun day together,” she said.
