Nigerian actor Genevieve Nnaji was in the red chair to talk about her new movie Half Of A Yellow Sun and the Nollywood film scene it emerged from.

Nnaji also explained what it felt like when Oprah Winfrey called her one of the most famous people in the world in 2009.

"It's funny how things don't dawn on me until after the fact," said Nnaji. "Because I was a bit skeptical. I'm like, 'How does Oprah know about me? Who told her? What does she know?'

"Yes, it did feel surreal and I felt very fortunate."
