The “Damage” Tour Hits the US! Uche Jombo, Tonto Dikeh & Kalu Ikeagwu in Staten Island & Minneapolis

 on


Uche Jombo has decided to take her message against domestic violence to another level, with plans to take her movie Damage on a tour across the United States of America as part of the awareness against domestic violence in the month regarded as domestic violence month in the United States.

Damage which has already had a spectacular premiere in Lagos and London premiered in New York on the October 7th and will premiere in Kentucky on October 15th, Houston, Atlanta on the 21st of October and in Philadelphia. Already tickets for the event are already on sale online at www.damagemovietickets.com.

Other stops on the tour include Texas and Minnesota.

When asked about her decision to take her movie on a tour in the United States, Uche said, “it is just a way of spreading the message against domestic violence, because if we look at it, it is truly a global problem. Also, apart from the showing of the movie in the United States, there will also be the sale of merchandise which will spread the message – to stop domestic violence. This will not only raise awareness to domestic violence, but would also serve as a means of raising funds which would be contributed toward the cause.

    Saw the premier in London and most of the people we spoke to, didn’t make any sense from the movie, the story line did not make sense and the picture quality was very poor. I would not see the movie for free.

      same here Joyce, I hated that i saw the movie and i went with a friend who was almost paying for the VIP viewing room, but it wasnt showing there. Kai i for ask for discount. Crappy Mr and Mrs Smith copy. I wonder what happened to ingenuity? Anyway, thats a long lost and long cry. I would only watch it again when snow is discovered in hell

      October 10, 2011 at 7:26 pm

      ummm they are not sausage rolls, neither are they accessories. Biko, u can sha allow google to be ur friend next time. They are called Flexi-Rods…they are a better option for curling ur hair sans heat.

    • princesschaddy

      October 10, 2011 at 7:38 pm

      well i didn’t tell you i dont know what they are or that i needed any google search or help here but i was just trying to let you know there are things you should just mind your business about that’s all. If they decide to make it accessories, so be it for them and just let them be thats it. Look for something else to talk about that makes sense cos this one makes no sense at all trust me

I love kalu.uche thank you for giving me one movie that makes sense not all the ones here that goes on to part 2 ,3 and4! Different title, 5and6 ,end of what the title is making you watch 6senseless movies trying to make sense out of nothing.I love nolly but they are losing points here with the parts (too long) ok getting back to damage, I love this movie.thanks uche jombo

    October 10, 2011 at 7:31 pm

    I seriously dont have any issue with us pointing out mistakes but there is no need doing so like you were fighting with Uche or Fighting with DAMAGE MOVIE. No one is perfect and for her to have taken the step to do this movie means she intends to grow and become better so lets give her some credit . lOVE YOU UCHE, TONTO, KALU MOSES. pEACE

    Choii!!! Commentators on Bella Naija can like to fight over the most trivial issues, so now we’re arguing about what the thingamijigs on their hair is called? Who cares what it’s called as long as I can pick it out at Walmart.

    Thumbs up to Uche, she’s really worked hard to get to where she is now, and she totally killed it in that long gown. Tonto looks good too. The film is one that definitely has a message, especially in these times when abuse against women is on the rise. can’t wait to see it.

All these US/UK movie launches, na wa! i wonder if the mexican movie producers do movie launches in US which is just minutes away, with millions of mexicans!

    Great insight, suberb collab and casts, intuitively expressive while sensitively highlighting the main and focal point of universal damage springing forth from domestic violence in most society. May i also add that the very detailed and perfectly scripted story leaves everyone hungry and curious for reasons behind the human mind and behavioral actions. A MUST WATCH!!!!!!!!!

    October 15, 2011 at 1:34 pm

    hmmm Nija actors we struggleto go over sees to show our movies,when the likes of (too numerous to mention)top hollywood producters/actors are starting to take keen interest in africa.Y struggle for international exposure when all you nees to do is promote your stuff here and the fame would come running after you,in most cases this would announce you all over.

    Well I am waiting to see this movie tomorrow here, ticket? Checked. My red carpet number? Checked. If I don’t like it, I will be back here bella to say what I think. This hghg person up really doesnt know anything about movie business( Hollywood is starting to take interest in Africa? Are you kidding me? They need Africa cos they dt hv stories anymore stories n peeps are getting tired of too many remakes going on, there’s nothing wrong in pushing ur movie beyond your comfort zone just pick a movie with the right message which is what Jombo has done……good business head
