    I thought uche jumbo was there? Why is mbong wearing two different outfit, is this post for two different premiere / screenings?

    September 28, 2012 at 6:35 pm

    Mbong, from these pictures you now know a bit of what works for you. You have a great body shape but a very short neck. No more neck filler dresses. Keep to dresses that dont cluster around the neck area and your head wont look so big

    I look forward to seeing this movie.

      It’s actually nine&co summer dress , retail price 185dollars you will know if you really have it because I just bought one today. Why the need to call out prices of dresses here? This post is about a Nigerian movie that was screened at the UN… You think you can look beyond what the actors are wearing to be proud of this young man called jeta amata?

    Agbani looks too old for her age, and her legs and skin don’t do her justice. Too much make up but lovely dress

  33. Hope

    September 28, 2012 at 11:39 pm

    Wow I am so happy for nollywood. Congrats jeta I love the movie, great story, Mbong needs to work on her acting more though enyi guy did good, Nse and OC just made what I saw on twitter clear which is …there are no small roles only small actors. Well done guys, love Fred role and that of dede, mickey shows why he’s world class as for wyclef and akon …..they should just sing music there’s more to acting that opening eyes all over the place.

  38. Vic

    September 29, 2012 at 3:43 am

    I love ms Jombo , first nollywood star I met I can’t believe I forgot to say that first and went on and on about the movie and acting like I’m some acting teacher. It was great to experience premiere at least I have now seen Jombo,Fred and jeta such talented young man. I am from Kenya and I have been a nollywood fan for years only lost interest with the never ending parts now so I feel great now with this movie. A proper motion picture.

    Breath-taking! I’ve read from all the critics perception, judgement and remark towards the BLACK NOVEMBER premieré in New York. Nevertheless, few things that i am after, is to see the action, the dialogue, most concern the setup, and the resolution. So, all these criticism toward someones outfit is not helping the production. Thanks.

    Nigerian movie producers, directors and actors have started pushing themselves. Before you know it, we’ll have a movie industry not just a home video industry. Jeta Amata doing his bit to improve the industry. It’s all good.
