Nollywood has seized to be the dumping ground for low quality films as movie producers and actors have improved on their skills, and are now producing movies that are of world class standards. This fact is further reinforced on Sunday, August 8 as one of Africa’sleading producers, Emem Isong invited top shots within and outside the movie industry to the premiere of Bursting Out and Holding Hope.
The event which took place at Silverbird Galleria had its red carpet filled with dignitaries and paparazzi fought themselves to have pictures taken. Majid Michel, Omoni Oboli, Stephanie Okereke, Nadia Buari, Genevieve Nnaji and many others were at the premiere to support their colleagues, Emem Isong, Uche Jombo and Desmond Elliot. Local and international TV crews including Reuters and Studio 53 Extra were on hand to cover the event! After doing the rounds on the red carpet, guests were then ushered upstairs to watch the movies.
People could not hold back their love for another block buster movie as the first hall quickly filled up and another hall had to be commandeered to accommodate the teaming crowd! Even that was not enough as many guests had to make do with sitting in the aisle and standing at the back of the hall.
Cocktails and small chops were on hand for interested guests. Then at about 7pm the screening started and many were engulfed in the humorous chick flick that is Bursting Out. Immediately after, the screening of Holding Hope began. It was a heart wrenching, tear-jerker that left many in tears.
After a great night of undeniable fun, guests eventually left the venue of the premiere with goodie bags.
