BN was on the scene at the Lagos Premiere of Ini Edo and Emem Isong‘s new movie “I’ll Take My Chances“.
Find out what everyone was buzzing about at the star-studded premiere.

Ini Edo & Mercy Johnson on “Bump Watch”
Before the premiere, rumours were swirling that Ini Edo and newlywed Mercy Johnson were both pregnant and would be making their “baby bump debut” a la Beyonce at the 2011 MTV Awards. Alas, it wasn’t to be as Ini and Mercy arrived on the red carpet in figure hugging dresses and not a baby bump in sight. Why are people putting them under pressure, in Nigeria it seems as though as soon as you get married, you are expected to have a baby ASAP!

Dakore Reemerges!
Nollywood star Dakore Akande has been missing from the red carpet since she gave birth to her daughter in 2011. Movie fans were excited and surprised to see Dakore at the premiere of “I’ll Take My Chances”. Fans and media clamoured for photos of the star and as BN noted, the Yummy Mummy looked fabulous. Dakore attended the premiere with her brother, James Egbuson.
