According to Stella Damasus, Genevieve Nnaji made her cry after she dedicated the movie to late Amaka Igwe, and also had Nollywood actors who have not been given a lot of opportunities in recent times as part of her cast.
‘Just finished watching #lionheartthemovie by @genevievennaji on @netflix my goodness this blew my mind. From the story, to the casting, to the cinematography, costumes and everything in it, this movie is so good. I don’t usually do this but please guys go and watch this movie. Let me thank Genevieve for casting our Nollywood actors who have not been given a lot of opportunities in recent times. Best of all she moved me to tears by dedicating the movie to AMAKA IGWE. I loved every minute of it and I know you all will. Please support this by watching and rating it with your thumbs up so that Netflix will know that Nigeria has great things to offer. #movie #film #nollywood #netflixmovies #womensupportingwomen’
