Nollywood-mania at Odeon as ‘Bursting Out’ hits London!



No one could possibly have anticipated the magnitude of fan excitement regarding this event. The Odeon Cinema in Greenwich, London hosted Nollywood as Emem Isong‘s movie “Bursting Out” premiered there on Friday, 29th October 2010. The event was hosted by Nollywood Movies SKY 329 and the purpose was to give the fans an opportunity to connect with their favourite stars.

Long before the screening started and even before the stars arrived, the red carpet area was filled with fans, photographers and video crews. As the stars including Ghanaian actor, Majid Michel, Susan Peters, Rukky Sanda, Monalisa Chinda and Genevieve Nnaji arrived, the entire area was drowned with screams from the elated fans. The stars signed autographs and posed for photos before they proceeded into the cinema. Inside, they mingled with fans and other stars who were at the venue including Jackie Appiah and musician Ashley Stephanie.

The screening rooms were filled to capacity and two additional screening rooms had to be added at the last minute to handle the high demand for tickets.

It was a fun night and another illustration of the massive potential that Nollywood holds.

    This is a first for me but i actually preferred Monalisa Chinda’s outfit to Genny’s. The nude peachy girly girl cocktail dress in a sea of black. Wish she did up her make and hair more though. Genny still looked great though. Loved her red lipstick

      November 2, 2010 at 10:30 am

      R u serrrrrrrrrrssssssssssss!!!!!!!!!!!!!??????????? D dress did not flatter her at all. I don’t think its nice sef. Bt if u think the dress is nicer, fine, I can’t argue on that one cause we can have subjective opinions on that. BUt kamaaaaan! Sii az dei dress dei for im bodii na!

    • ibegtodisagree

      November 2, 2010 at 11:40 am

    susan needs a stylist asap. the outfit is all wrong!!! far too many things are happening at once here…that dead bird she placed on her shoulders needs to go, and the style and material of her dress is also not so great. i am really not a fan of this geh’s dress sense. she never gets it right!

    Genevieve looks good. im loving the red lip and simple yet chiq hairstyle. Would have loved to see her in something other than black though!

    Rukky’s dress is lovely, her shoes are horrible. She not fit buy correct size or what? see as her toes are just hanging over the front of the shoe. That bag she is carrying is not even fine either.

    Monalisa’s dress is lovely. i reallly love the colour, and style! She is looking really good!

    Majid looks okay. i would have liked to see him in a full suit though. he should take some tips from mike ezu

    Jackie appiah is a beautiful woman, but that weave is not nice.

    Auntie emem is looking good o!

You don’t expect her to buy a size larger do you? How about the picture was taken at the wrong time ehh.. S.M.H. Mind you am not her sis/friend/know her in anyway possible.. bye..

  10. sazzy

    November 1, 2010 at 9:04 pm

    seriously why is Rukky sanda carrying that bag with that dress, what happened to clutches? that shoe is not it at all.

    Jackie Appiah’s FACE looks pretty… that hair reminds me of the poem Olurombi for some reason
    Rukky Sanda really should NOT have that red paste on her eyelids

    That is all..

    wHO IS rUKKY sANTA and what memorable movie has she ever done. I guess she is like the paris hilton on naija. NO TALENT – just famous for the hell of it and as for SUSAN she is the queen of CLOWN makeup – she reps for naija ladies hard

    • Omoge

      November 2, 2010 at 11:38 am

      And you… who do you represent? Abeg, Naija girls are reppin’ hard… and going places. Entering regions you can only dream of. If you dont have anything nice to say, pump your brace! ptcheeew!

    Susan Patrick and Rukky Sanda?! Isn’t this the movie with Nse Ikpe-Etim and Omoni Oboli? Genevieve’s hair and make-up look good but I don’t think the dress was a good idea

    • Chipii Banda

      November 2, 2010 at 10:35 am

      I knowwwww. I don’t really like the dress either. I know she has nicer dresses than that now. It wasn’t bad but she coulda sone so much more.

    • Miss Thang

      November 2, 2010 at 11:43 am

      Susan PETERS is in the movie and Rukky Sanda came to support. Nothing wrong with that.

  19. Olivia

    November 2, 2010 at 12:26 am

    Genny is a true STAR!!! She owns every frame she’s in…..the first pic of her signing an autograph…Halle Berry level. So happy for Naija movie stars o!
    Mona Lisa looks so pretty in her outfit. Very flattering colour for her skin tone.
    Rukky! Rukky! Rukky! Always a vibe around her like a ‘D’ list star trying too hard to squeeze into lives of the ‘A’ list stars/ events. No further comments….
    Susan Peters is always hit and miss but I love how she’s one of the few actresses that takes the trouble to keep fit and in shape/look toned up.
    I love Majid’s casual look but I agree with the person that said a suit would look great on him…I need to watch a really good movie-well written/directed, with Majid/Genny (like KEEPING FAITH…where are Amaka Igwe and Ego Boyo plzzzzz)

  20. Bukky

    November 2, 2010 at 1:07 am

    lol…comments no go kill me o.Sorry, who is Rukky sanda?Actress, singer what???i have never seen or heard her in anything

  21. Chiangel

    November 2, 2010 at 1:18 am

    Nice photos. Emem Isong needs to switch it up a little and I’m referring to her hair style. Soft, side swept bangs would really do for her. Genny looks great. Rukky is aight. Mona lisa is ok. Overall cool photos.

  22. aosgrl

    November 2, 2010 at 2:20 am

    HAHAHA at you guy’s complaining about Rukky’s point. She spent $2500 on a Dior Bag and you want her to keep it at home? Say weting. You know we nigerians like to Demo nah! ITs a cute bag but it doesn’t go with the event or the outfit. Hate the contact lenses too.

    Rukky Sansa pls go and drop that bag..nonsense,hasnt anybody told you,you dont use big casual bags on the red have just shown the world that you dont have class.if you just bought the bag and want to show it off,there are different times you can,when you are out with your friends and not on a red carpet.when you do red carpet you do nice purse okay..and another thing i want to tell you is..i think you are a pretty girl and you dress nice sometimes but please stop wearing short gowns,you dont have nice legs,they too thin at the ankle compared to the to of the legs,and you have marks allover,its an eyesore to see girls who dont have good and proportional legs doing short clothes,it doesnt look nice atall i am so sorry but if must do short short gowns then wear tights..that way it blends well okay…i like your swag,thats why i am telling you this,and i have realised that you may not have good friends who tell you the truth……my honest oppinion….so help me God.

  34. Teebabe

    November 2, 2010 at 12:36 pm

    Susan Peters is such a pretty lady that did not give her beauty a chance ….try simplicity next time babe so people remember YOU not the dress.
    Rukky ok designer bag but its not about the bag its about you.Try hidding the labels and showing the woman.
    Genny you put the women first and that outfit was all about you:help a sister what shade of lipstick is that (want it)
    Emem definately talented and intelligent but being big should not be boring fashion get the help of someone who knows(we are all talented in different things so nothing wrong in getting a stylist and make up artist)Love the shoes though 🙂
    Jackie Appiah: the look is very pretty love it.
    Monalisa: You made effort and looked beautiful,don’t be scared of experimenting with your hair.
    Ashley Stephanie: donot experiment with your hair again pls.
    Successful event you ALL made us proud : he no easy to dress well.

    Rukky Sanda…na wa o. tryin to show dat shez got it too. undersized shoes and inappropriate bag will sound like a cliche on this page buh i seem not to be able to restrain myself from metionin it…overall, nice event

  37. The reader

    November 2, 2010 at 1:41 pm

    LOL!!!! what a refreshing post…
    All these comments are just hi-to-the-larious!
    Erm how many versions of Rukky S’s last name dey this page? Almost uncountable… it’s SANDA na…teheee!
    lol… She tries too hard and ends up getting lost in all of it just because! Still a far cry from being relevant either as an “actress” or “start”..she sha never get am.. pls a good friend or family member of hers should kindly tell her the TRUTH!
    Genny, is always on point! She’s allowed to kinda slip sometimes… yeah, the dress is kinda missing somethn, however… that make up and hairstyle… MAGNICHIC! And ofcourse the oozing of “star” is erm correct!
    Emem, Emem, Aunty Emem… plz nau, get a stylist… get some professional help with ur makeup, hair and general style… u trully need to, plz…. u derserve it! thaink u ma! 🙂
    Susan peters.. looks good na… but e too much around every1 else…
    Monalisa- Pls pls pls..easy on the weight gain…easyyyyyy!
    Every1 else… mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!

    November 2, 2010 at 3:42 pm

    genny and rukky seem usual to me. genny, hot as ever, and rukky funny as usual. rukky i tink if u try to be more natural, u mite just look better. u are always puttin too much effort. even a regular lagos girl knows dat u dnt carry big bags for such events let alone red carpet in london. i knw u were tryin to show off ur designer bag, but am sure dior also makes purses which am sure wuld av bn noticed too. genny, d monostrap gown is gettin too random on u, it suits u, but u gotta try somtin else to avoid lukin random. monalisa, u need to shed some weight, and d outfit made it more obvious, u looked good tho. dnt knw who susan peters is, and she was lukin funny btw. jackie, pretty as ever and majid, handsome as ever. how come omosexy is absent???

  41. Chibaby

    November 2, 2010 at 3:47 pm

    I think Rukky needs to buy her size in shoes. Buying smaller size wont make her feet smaller. Genny’s is always chic, love the red lipstick. Monlisa’s look is okay; she needs do something more with the hair. Susan needs to find another dress. Jackie’s weave is not that bad; it blends well with her hair.

    for me Ashley stephanie was my best ,she is so pretty, at the same time very chic and sexy,her outfit ,hair,makeup is always great she is just the best in all what she does i love Ashley i can’t wait to get her new song ,, xxxx.

  44. osiko

    November 3, 2010 at 4:41 am

    Susan trys so – hard, she is beginning to look like a rainbow to me, its like she goes to an event thinking “i must look the best by fire by force” damn girl, you need to cool down.
    Gene is always playing the safe card, i think thats why she gets away with looking nice all the time. but at the same time she pulls off the simple look with good weave and decent makeup. i would like to see her in other colors but gray and black. maybe she is just like the jennifer aniston of nija, who wears nothing but black white and grey
    Mona lisa looked good, love her outfit, keep it up
    Jackie is gorg…no futher comments
    rukky tries so – hard, maybe thats why she is bffs with susan…the bags and shoes are bth epic failure accessories

    • Defjam

      November 4, 2010 at 12:57 pm

      my dear, i have just figured out who ashley is, noone seemed tpo recognise her but she was full on, rocking the carpet … lol

      and another thing Jackie was not there – no one saw her … interesting

      Rukky is getting lighter though and it will be such a shame if she is doing what i think she’s doing and yes she should have dropped the bag !

    It seems Bella Naija is getting really biased by allowing certain posts and not allowing others. When people come in here and are downright nasty, the comments are allowed but when some others like me counter some of those posts, it will not be approved, why? I honestly think some of these comments should be screened and folks should not use this platform to vent their anger and frustrations on these innocent artists who are doing their thing and contributing to the Nigerian economy. This is a very intelligent and interesting site so it should not be turned into something else. If you continue to allow this nonsense, then you are heading for doom.

    Nollywood, don’t mind them jare! Continue making us proud. Wear whatever makes you happy but keep doing your thing. Let the bad belle people continue in their constipation. You can’t blame them anyways, they so wish to be in your place! Most of these nasty comments are from those whohavetriedto get into nollywood and have failed. They can get nasty al they want, but it won’t change anything! The stars will continue to be up there and they will remain down there gazing at them and longing to be them!

    i havent laughed so hard in a while. u guys r just hilarious. as harsh as the comments sound it is very constructive. i now pay more at attention to my appearance wen i am going for an event.

    Genevieve: My favorite actress of all time, I am so glad to witness “the rise and rise of Miss Nnaji,” she deserves every inch of it. She totally rocks and represents big time!!! Now let’s talk fashion: she looks very glamorous and her dress definitely flatters her petite frame…Love the old Hollywood style makeup and loose do‘. However, I do agree with some previous posts, she plays it too safe. I think different accessories would add some “ho la la ” to the whole look, like a silver/sparkly clutch or long earrings.
    Mona Lisa: She is a great actress as well. Love the material and nude color of her dress. Simple yet classy and Mona Lisa definitely get it right by pairing the sequined embellishments of the dress to her sandals. Besides, the short hair compliments the whole look. Mona Lisa truly looks lovely and ethereal but the cut of her dress rather makes her look bigger… She reminds me of those Russian dolls called “matrioshka,” cute but very matronly. Not so cool!
    Rukky Sanda: In my humble opinion, the girl looks fierce in her French Connection mini. I love her ‘do, it’s really classy and enhances her bone structure. Unfortunately, Miss Sanda lack of taste in choosing her accessories makes a flop of what could be a fashion hit. The color of the bag and shoes is a bold statement and I respect that, but the size of the bag, oh my, this is soooooooooo wrong. CLUTCH, CLUTCH, and CLUTCH on the red carpet, this should be a mantra! As for those toes that seem to have a life of their own… What can I say? Well, I am convinced that some nice pumps (abeg not the peep-toes ones oh…) would keep those toes in check… So I have an ANOUNCEMENT!!!! To all fashionistas out there, please note that the wrong accessories can ruin the most dazzling outfit. Chikena!!!!
    Susan Peters: She has beautiful features and her makeup and ‘do make her look like a diva. BUT her outfit caused my fashion trauma, a major one for that instance!!!! First the material of the dress… very cheap, curtain looking material. Then, why the fur like collar and the chandelier earrings out of nowhere as if the color of this dress was not enough? A lot is going on with Miss Peters outfit but the tights just pulled the plug on my life support! At this point, I won’t even talk about the shoes, let’s move on to my next comment.
    Jackie Appiah: Lovely!!!! Minimalist makeup that enhances her angel like features. Love the embroideries on her dress (or tunic, I can’t tell which one it is), and pink is definitely her color. Not so fan of her hair though. I can feel the difference between her hair and the weave…
    Auntie Emem: Big is Beautiful, but her hair makes her look untidy. A more elaborate hairstyle would add some edge… Instead of this coat, a tunic on her LBD would be nice or nothing at all. However, I do like the way her peep-toes match the coat.
    Ashley Stephanie (I don’t know her but I must add my own): Miss Stephanie is showing off her curves in this sparkling number. The dress is very red carpet like. However, her look is missing something to be on my best dress list… It has to do with the hair… An ‘up do would definitely look more classy. Besides, her makeup looks like she applied it in the car on her way to the venue… Not elaborate at all!
    Majid Michael: Soooo handsome!!! But too casual. Black suit is a must Mr. Michael: It is a movie premiere/red carpet event and YOU are the lead actor of the movie premiered!!!

      Thank you Donthate-Appreci8te. I totally agree with you. One should get his/her point across without being rude. We should celebrate our African stars and make honest, constructive critiques when need be without being abusive. After all, those people represent us on the international scene. We should be proud of them and help them grow. Go Africa! XOXO
