Following the release of Sugar Rush, which saw Adesua Etomi playing the lead role, her performance in the movie has spark reactions from Nigerians.
However, it took a new turn during the weekend as Nigerians took to Twitter to compare Adesua Etomi to Nigeria’s veteran actress, Genevieve Nnaji, who recently became a member of the Oscar Academy.
While many stated that Adesua and Genevieve were equally good, others considered it an insult to compare Adesua to Genevieve.

Putting Adesua in the same category with Genevieve is utmost disrespect.
Genevieve is great.
Adesua is good. https://t.co/NazLkFKvEH

Na this same Adesua wey dem been dey hail o as the second coming of Regina Askia.
Today, it's her skin that's bestowing her unfair advantage. Not her talent and years of hard work aligning.
You people will one day say it's 2baba's baldness that gave him longevity.

Anyone who says Adesua isn’t a good actor is a hater. They may not even know it themselves. But that’s the only reason you’d watch all her role interpretations then come with a conclusion like that. It’s either conscious or subconscious hating.

Alot of you comparing Genevieve to Adesua didn't watch her in prime years and it shows.
There's no role that this woman didn't play, from good girl to evil witch to seductress, spoilt brat, classy, wickedness, crazy, etc.
There was nothing stiff about her acting,
