Omoni Oboli crowns herself as a very qualified movie director


Nollywood actress Omoni Oboli became even more famous after her blue dress episode at the presidential villa with president Goodluck Jonathan.

The actress revealed that her competence as a movie director are baseless and irrelevant.

According to her,  the experience she gathered while on movie sets and at the New York Film Academy are enough to qualify her.

‘I learnt some people asked if I am competent enough to direct a movie; without wanting to join issues with those people, the answer to their question is yes. Not only have I picked up on-the field experience, I also went to one of the best film schools in the world, the New York Film Academy (NYFA) to learn directing specifically.

She described her stay at the school as interesting, and added ‘My lecturers were impressed with my project and I remain one of the few female practitioners in the industry who have gone to the school. If my years of experience and NYFA education don’t qualify me, I wonder what will.’

Oboli’s directorial debut, Being Mrs Elliot  was released in Nigerian cinemas in September, and stars her in the lead role along with others like Majid Michel, Ayo Makun, and Lepacious Bose and others.
