Genevieve Nnaji, the ace Nollywood actress, says mental health has a lot more to do with spiritual than physical.


Mental health has to do with people’s emotional, psychological, and social well-being.

It affects how people think, feel, and act while it also helps determine how one handles stress, relate to others, and make healthy choices.

In a post via her Instagram story on Saturday, the movie star attributed mental health to spirituality.


Nnaji also urged her followers to rededicate their lives to God and get rebaptised.

“Mental health is more spiritual than it is physical. Rededicate your life to God you Get rebaptised,” she wrote.

She, however, did not provide any evidence to back her claim.


With strings of awards and recognition, Nnaji has established herself as a household name in the country’s movie industry.

The Nollywood star gained prominence with her role as a child actor (8) in the then-popular television soap opera ‘Ripples’.

She has received several awards and nominations for her works — some of which include the Best Actress of the Year Award at the 2001 City People Awards and the Best Actress in a Leading Role Award at the 2005 AMAA awards.

Her movie, ‘Lionheart,’ was selected by the Nigerian Oscars Selection Committee (NOSC) as Nigeria’s submission for the best international feature film category of the 2020 Oscars.


It was the first film ever submitted to the Oscars by Nigeria.

The Imo state indigene holds a bachelor’s degree in Creative Arts from the University of Lagos (UNILAG).
