“Bursting Out” & “Holding Hope” Redefined Movie Premiere
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’s
leading 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.
