Sultry Actress, Bimbo Akintola Discovers Love In 'Hoodrush'
Story by Osaremen Ehi James/Nigeriafilms.com
Last Updated: Wednesday, July 18, 2012
Star actress, Bimbo Akintola, who got her movie breakthrough in the blockbusting movie, 'Owo Blow' some years ago, has proven a point that she is still relevant in playing the emotional roles she is well known for.
This is because in the new film, 'Hoodrush', Bimbo gave her best and also made a statement that she is still in vogue. The sterling performance of this University of Ibadan Theatre Arts graduate in 'Hoodrush' was priceless.
Also starred in the movie are Gabriel Afolayan, UC Ukeje Chelsea Eze, Ijeoma Agu, Lilian Byoma and others.
'Hoodrush' is a musical flick that tells the story of two brothers closely bonded by their love for music; but deeply separated by their means for success.
Shez(O.C Ukeje) and Tavier(Gabriel Afolayan) are two of a kind pursuing a Herculean dream of becoming music stars.
Being at the bottom of the societal grid, ghetto life’s ugly fabric begins to wear on them and their eventual vulnerability puts them at the mercy of the high and mighty.
'Hoodrush' will be in cinema from Friday, October 12, 2012.

Well said FIRSTLADY, her acting is superb just that she nags too much in her movies. She is cool but for a moment, I thought she was about to get married when I saw the headline. Nice one Bimbo.
Quazzy | 7/18/2012 2:07:23 AMWow! thats fantabulous, Welldone Bimbo I think its a good thing dat people realise that when it comes to acting, all dat glitters may just be kpanda! I have absolutely nothing against others. she acts good and pretty actually esp. in "Out of Bounds" i know that movie is old but it was really great. RMD's great too. Reply this thread
shanko | 7/18/2012 2:52:46 AMLet's face reality here,BIMBO AKINTOLA is da bomb, she's in a world of her own,her poise and confidence makes her stand out both in yoruba and English movies. Lol is that movie where she's like "don't mess with my tutu"? Cos that scene still makes me laugh. I think both Bimbo and Gen are great. Bimbo slightly more because she can do stage and Yoruba movies. Reply this thread

And Bimbo nags too much. Always playing a bad/nagging wife role.
ify | 7/18/2012 3:00:44 AMIs there really a debate here? Of course Bimbo is a far better actress! She's got poise, carriage, drama and can interprete just about any role. Gene is very monotonous. She's either playing the part of a NaughtyWoman, a spoilt brat or a love role. Now, get her to play the role of a widow who had to endure the torture of her inlaws and don't forget to make her shave her hair off. If in doubt, go and see the mourning after and compare it to her role in 'Out of bounds' - then come back and do your comparison. You will be left GOBSMACKED!
Genny is marketable while Bimbo is a pure class act![quote][/quote]

The only advantage I feel Genevieve has over her is not having extra flesh on her body. Apart from that, Bimbo is beautiful, seductive and a very good actress. Have you really makeout time to watch Genevieve when she is acting, she always have this detatched look on her ("let me get over with") kind of look. It is so unreal But with Bimbo, it is always so natural

chibuzo | 7/18/2012 9:45:03 AMi know that this media is absolutely FREE OF CHARGE but that still doesn't change the fact that when you judge people, it doesn't really define them but rather it defines you. Reply this thread

phylosopher keep on phylosophying o! Mtchew! Nonsense!
imabong | 7/18/2012 11:06:21 AM@Shanko , lalaland and Kinky .Not sure who started acting first but Pretty face fades after a while but pure talent doesn't. Talking about Genevieve's beauty, are people just judging by facial looks only because I hate the way Genevieve walks and the way her bum sits on her hips or should I say legs. Reply this thread
Genneveve is better & prettier
sexy Kojo | 7/18/2012 11:15:14 AMGenevieve. How can Bimbo be pretty than Genny. Alone her name Bimbo shows that she is not to be compared to GENEVIEVE. And Genny acts better than bimbo 1000 times. go genny go sweety. BIMBO IS COOL BUT GENEVIEVE IS ON FIRE AND SHE CAN MELT D ICE . she always remind me of HALLE BERRY. Reply this thread

Gene is best
sexy Kojo | 7/18/2012 11:29:39 AMI dont know what is is about Genny that gets peope hating so hard . She is a softie, honest and better than those holier than thou fake actresses such as Omtola, Ini, and co. Her and Yvonne Nelson are kim kardashain darker version. Reply this thread

ziggy | 7/18/2012 11:42:10 AMBimbo akintola owns it all forget gene jooo . bimbo is quality genevieve is radiant but i go for quality Reply this thread
Omotola all the way
Brymo | 7/18/2012 11:44:52 AMeither way you all put it-
i hear that Genny was the highest paid actress in 9JA. and i think its for her looks and promiscuity. plus she can get down pretty sassy on screen. But in person she is not all that. i have seen her in action twice in nigeria while on the set, where her and Desmond Elliot were a couple. and once on an "economy class" flight coming from Amsterdam with her manager, She was wearing a fake afro, and a short top that showed her full stomach which (at the time) was out of shape and had sooo many stretch marks. is that the best she can afford? Bimbo is not that hot, but shes got the acting skills down for sure. Plus she is classy in interview, not arrogant.
Memuna from Cameroun | 7/18/2012 11:57:23 AMIm not a nigerian but i love watching nigerian movies, i think Bimbo is a great actress. Its funny how some people compares bimbo beauty to Gennys. Yes, Genny is beautiful but not as Bimbo. When you look at the two, u' ll see dat Bimbo is beautiful. Aite, lets go back to acting skills, Genny needs mo acting classess. a lots of y'all be exaggerating over her acting talents but da girl is a mess. dont get me wrong (im not hating) but she seriously needs to upgrade her acting skills. Shes good but not da Best. Im not a fan of neither of dem but i'll definately votes 4 Bimbo, cuz i think, shes a good actress Reply this thread
