It was an evening to behold at the Premiere of ‘Bursting Out‘ and ‘Holding Hope‘ as the stars came out to support these two eagerly anticipated blockbusters. The crowd at the event was unbelievable as a seemingly endless stream of celebrities including Majid Michel, Omoni Oboli, Stephanie Okereke, Nadia Buari, Genevieve Nnaji and many others arrived 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. 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 sit make due with sitting in the aisle and standing at the back of the hall! Such was the thirst and desire to see yet another block buster movie from the creative wizardry of Emem Isong in conjunction with brilliant artistic interpretation by Desmond Elliot and the lethal marketing skills of Uche Jombo! But it was was all worth it! As the theme music began and the opening credits rolled, a hush fell over the restive audience as guests began to watch the two movies. From the shouts, screams and tears in the hall they knew that they had witnessed something great and as they made away with their goodie bags, many expressed their intent to buy the movies when they are released on VCD/DVD.
