Producers of “The Boss is Mine” explain Why their Star-Studded premiere flopped in Uyo

The Boss is MineWe were really looking forward to the star-studded premiere of “The Boss is Mine” as celebrities including Iyanya flew in to attend.

The producer of the movie Okey Oku has issued a statement explaining what happened.

You may have been expectant and a bit curious as to why We haven’t done any post about The Boss is Mine movie Uyo premiere which was scheduled for the 10th of January at Ibom Tropicana AkwaIbom.

Well after an amazing premiere in Enugu Mr @okechukwuoku and his team set out for Uyo the next day. We all arrived at the venue and confirmed all was well and subsequently set up for Red carpet.

All intended guests arrived, Iyanya, Selebobo, Ime Bishop, Ini Akpabio, Mike Godson, Daniella Chioma Okeke, The commissioner for Tourism and a host of important dignitaries all present for an explosive event.

At about 4pm, Silverbird cinema power supply went off, a situation we believed a huge company like that could handle and are prepared for. To our greatest shock, this power outage last an hour, two, three and our guest got apprehensive. We approached the management of Silverbird and was told their generator got damaged.

@okechukwuoku personally decided to visit the generator house to see this and was perplexed to see 4 dead generators. He was made to understand that they where waiting for their engineer to come. We waited till about 8:30pm then our guests started leaving. Shortly after the engineers arrival the generator powered on. Silverbird management was insensitive to the damage they were causing us as they were busy running their own business, wondering how possible that was as one of their screens was working and tickets were selling.

We all @thebossisminemovie and @okechukwu want to use this time to say that Silverbird will not go scot free after messing up Mr. @okechukwuoku company’s pedigree, shaming our esteemed guest and causing us massive financial loss. We will not let this issue stride. Our sincere apologies to all who travelled from many parts of the country to attend this premiere.

We will do our best to stop Nigerian business practitioners from getting away with mishaps like this. THE BOSS IS MINE is a great movie and we will not let this kill the already growing love for it. GOD BLESS YOU Signed By Okechukwu Oku ‪#‎thebossisminemovie‬ @thebossisminemovie

Hopefully the filmmakers can bounce back after this disappointment.

    Please what is happening in our country?? $2.1billion got missing like that, 2016 budget is no where to be found and now that Laura Ikeji’s post is missing.
    BN…. If only you knew the plans I had for that post eh(to relax and read the comments after a long day).. Mmm, It’s not fair!
    With all these your(BN) theatrics I won’t be surprised if that missing budget is with you people.

      You could public service and tell those that didn’t see it (O/) what the post was about.

      I think BN allowed Bullies to get a better part of them, it is so disappointing. They did not have to pull that post unless the lady requested for it. – Say no to Online/Cyber bullying .

      Asin Ehn! I was looking for that Laura Ikeji post like dog wey lost him puppy yesterday o. I was saving the post for later to read comments anx eat popcorn. Ironic how someone says “online bullying no dey pain me” and the post is pulled down. BN,if you no get liver, don’t bother to put up a post. Very bad that you will let us taste something only to make us starve again.

    Totally unrelated to this post…
    But seriously, this is a big concern. I look at some hate comments on this blog and I I just wonder… Some of you will wake up in the morning to pray and cry out to God to bless your handiwork. You will fast and pray to God not to forget you. Yet, you will go to the comment sections of blogs and insult and bully others who are trying to hustle and make it life. What do you gain from bringing people down? Y can like my comment or not. Please just fear God!!

    • Cindy January 14, 2016 at 11:03 am

      You spoilt your wonderful comment with “you can like my comment or not”; it makes it sound like you really want us to agree with you. Am I a bully too for making this observation?

    • Omoté January 14, 2016 at 12:36 pm

      As long as people can hide behind their phones there will always be bullies. BN visitors r the sanest(not that we don’t av a few bullies here). You should see the kind of cyber bullying that goes on on the other blogs, fear go catch you.

    4 generators! in a sane country, should a business even have a generator at all? if its not the lack of diesel, its the mechanic that steals its parts or the manager that connives with them to hyperinflate the cost of spares.
    wetin man go do? we small businesses dust it off and move on. sorry oh producers. sorry silverbird. sorry o Nigeria.
