Genevieve Nnaji is surely one of the big flops when it comes to actors venturing into music. Back in 2005 after Genevieve got suspended by Marketers alongside other big names at that time from acting, she ventured into music. She released a song titled ‘No More’ and got a recording deal in Ghana shortly after but this still wasn’t enough for her to make a mark in the Nigerian music scene. She flopped woefully in the music scene, and we are also wishing that she sticks to her terrain, which is movie, as a second attempt in the music scene may end same way.

Omosexy as she is fondly called just turned 40, and the entire Nigeria entertainment industrywere well represented at her events marking her new age. However, such love wasn’t what she received when she released two albums with singles ‘Missing You,’ ‘Feel Alright’ and ‘Gba’. She was literarily laughed at, and she just had to return to her comfort zone. She is really better of not coming back to music.
Tonto Dike alias Tontolette is obviously one of what Nigerians could refer to as “miss road artiste”. She was so taunted and cajoled at the same time because of the awful sound she produced. Her singles ‘Hi’ and ‘It’s Over’ received such negative feedback that Tonto decided to stop there and continue to flourish back in her comfort zone of acting. She has since kept quiet about music, and we hope it remains so.
Jim Iyke is one of Nollywood actors that tried their luck in the music scene but had little or no success. His most famous track is ‘Who Am I’ which he featured 2Face Idibia. Many believed that the airplay that track received is largely due to 2face. Their assumption could be right as his album ‘Born to Do This’ with a number of notable other features flopped.
Mr. Ibu as he is fondly called also attempted venturing into music after what seems like Nkem Owoh aka Osuofia made impact with his “I go chop” single, which was a soundtrack that he mimed. However, John Okafor was surprised as he flopped and he made a turn immediately back to acting. There is no doubt that Mr. Ibu is a good dancer and actor, but he will certainly do better if he goes into OGENE MUSIC, because it seems he is truly good at such traditional songs.
