Months ago, photos of upcoming actress Jemima Osunde were splashed on social media with the false claim that she was the daughter of the legendary actress Genevieve Nnaji.
Now, the actress has gotten the opportunity of a lifetime as she co-stars alongside Nnaji in the legend’s directional debut, ‘Lionheart’.
This hearty news was shared on Instagram yesterday by Bellanaija, which revealed that the new project is currently being shot on location in Enugu. Nnaji had made her debut as a movie producer with her successful film, ‘Long Road to Yesterday’, and now, she adds another feather to her already-decorated heart as a movie director.
And what thrills many people is that she is starring alongside the Shuga actress Jemima who was previously mistaken to be her daughter by folks dying to meet the only child of the legendary actress.
It is unclear what role Jemima plays in the movie, but a sneak photo of them on set yesterday, dressed in identical outfits, already has given many people ideas into what to expect.

But do the actresses share any semblance?
“They are beautiful!” said one Instagrammer, and another @olukemi_ayanfe, added, “They don’t look alike at all. Melanin is the only thing they have in common.”
Well, we can’t wait to see this new movie!
