Lagos@50: Wedding Party, 76, other films for screening

Published

on

Lagosians will have a rare opportunity to watch some 10 top Nollywood films today (Friday), as a part of the ongoing Lagos @50 celebration.

They are Kunle Afolayan’s new film, Roti, which will premiere at the IMAX Cinema in Lekki.

The state Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, is expected to be among the dignitaries and other stakeholders that will see the work.

Multiple award-winning 76, which dramatises the 1976 coup in which General Murtala Muhammed was assassinated, will also be screened, while Tunde Kelani’s movie, Maami, adapted from a publication by Professor Femi Osofisan, will also be screened in Epe.

Another acclaimed film on the list is The Wedding Party, produced  by Mo Abudu alongside other investors. The movie that comically celebrates an elite wedding is particularly returning to popular view at an auspicious moment and will be in Badagry.

The artistes that played its lead characters, Banky W and Adesua Etomi, only on Wednesday announced that they were engaged – truly engaged beyond the acting they put up in the film that also stars Sola Sobowale, Ireti Doyle, Ali Baba, Afeez Oyetoro, among other stars.

Ace comedian, Ayo Makun, also have a stake in the Lagos @50 project. The reason is that his massively-selling film, A Trip to Jamaica, will be screened in Ikeja.

Another big one that Lagosians will have the advantage to watch is Steve Gukas-directed 93 Days, a dramatisation of Nigeria’s battle against Ebola, the heroine of which was Stella Adadevoh, whose role is played by Bimbo Akintola. It will be shown in Epe.

With the harvest of films to be shown today, the organising committee said Lagos was re-asserting itself as the primary market for films and other forms of entertainment in Nigeria and Africa at large.

The Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Steve Ayorinde, also noted that the Ambode government believed in giving support and opportunity to film-makers as it loved to do with other art and cultural workers.

“You will recall that, last year, the government took 10 films to the Toronto Film Festival where Lagos was honoured as  a major film state. You also recall that the government is working on new theatres/cinemas across the five divisions in the state. On the one hand, we are also using the Friday’s multiple screenings in different areas of the state as a prelude to the experience that Lagosians will be having when the theatres come on board. Also, we are conscious of the fact that we need to give those places that are not directly hosting any of the theatres or cinemas an opportunity to have a feel of the top films.”

Other film to be shown include Relentless (Lagos Island) and Gidi Blues (Badagry).
