Face of Lux -Genevieve earns N20m
This is the best of times for sultry actress, Genevieve Nnaji. A global brand, Lux is now having her beautiful face on its wrappers. With her new status, the world stardom that Genevieve so much craves through the sliver screen may have just fallen on her lap, wrapped on a tablet of Lux.
According to the Managing Director of CMC Connect, Mr Yomi Badejo-Okusanya, for the first time, a Nigerian has emerged as the new face of a global brand like Lux soap.
He says: “Lux, a global brand is for women of passion and beauty. Having Genevieve, an actress as the new face of Lux is a challenge to the entertainment industry. It is a new dawn, a fresh start which will take the industry to the next level.”
For Genevieve, it is an opportunity of a lifetime to model for a soap that is sold in over 100 countries of the world: “I thank God, my parents and the press for this great opportunity. I feel honoured to be selected as the new face of Lux. I am neither the best actress nor the most beautiful woman in Nigeria. I am representing not only Nigeria but also Africa. It's a great responsibility. I promise to be a good ambassador.”
Now, Genevieve has joined world acclaimed divas like Catherine Zeta Jones, Marylyn Monroe and Patti Boulaye whose pretty faces have graced the wrappers of Lux.
But Genevieve has not only embraced international stardom, she has also hit fortune. Blockbuster learnt that the soap deal had fetched Genevieve a whopping N20 million.
