Journey to Self” is one of the most anticipated Nigerian movies hitting the cinemas this festive season. Gearing up for the film’s December 5th 2012 release, the cast and crew celebrated by hosting the Lagos premiere at the Silverbird Galleria in Lagos.

With so many top notch leading ladies headlining the movie, the red carpet was popping with lots of gorgeous looks! It has been a while since we have seen Dakore Akande and Ashionye Michelle Raccah on the red carpet and they certainly did not disappoint! From their new uber-flattering new hair to jewel-toned green and yellow floor-length dresses respectively; they both looked great!

Other stars of the movie Nse Ikpe-Etim, Katherine Obiang, Tosin Sido and director Tope Oshin-Ogun rocked the red carpet in style. Rita Dominic, Kate Henshaw, Gbenro Ajibade, Kalu Ikeagwu and Kiki Omeili also attended the event. We can’t wait for the official photos – check out the first photos from the premiere below.

      Hai! You can talk o! lol. You’re right sha. But I think she looks great in that gown.
      I thought Ashionye was breathtaking too. I love Kate’s twist-outs. I can’t wait to rock mine. However, that dress is a no no!

    Ok Kathrine Obiang I have always loved you and you look fab however that dress dint fit at the top you for try use tape for your boobs and put a few stitches to the side. I just kept wondering if you were comfortable in the dress nevertheless you look fab for an after 3 and despite all the stories about you and your ex. Hmm this new bonding of akwa ibom babes Kate Henshaw,Rita and Kathrine Edoho… I like.
    Dakore and Rita your make up ….. hmmmm lips sealed

      Neither Kate Henshaw nor Rita Dominic are from Akwa Ibom. Kate is an Efik girl and Rita is Igbo.

    I love that more and more nigerian women are going back to the basics with their hair. Very impressed with Ashionye and Nse’s hair styles. Enough of the butt length horse hair.

    November 26, 2012 at 1:47 pm

    Katherine O. but why? Push up/coste bra don finish for market? Rita looks Gorgeous as always, Nse looks tired, Dakore used up all her pancake for this event. Kate Henshaw on point, Ashionye’s dress is cool.

  34. reeling in shame

    November 26, 2012 at 1:58 pm

    Why can’t her friends call her aside,I tell her the dress did her no justice? And to tink that the pix will be all over the internet make it the more worst…she will be looking at the pix and wish the ground will cover her up…”When a brother is dancing badly in the presence of observer,there relative scratch their head in shame”..

    November 26, 2012 at 2:17 pm

    Rita is my girl, but the makeup and hair is not working at all. Ashinoye looks gorgeous, short hair suits her. Tope Ogun is beautiful.
