BN Exclusive: Watch the First Teaser for Michelle Bello’s New Movie “Flower Girl” starring Damilola Adegbite, Chris Attoh & Eku Edewor | Video Teaser & Photo of the Cast



So excited!
As you can imagine, we love romantic comedies. Especially romantic comedies done right!
On Valentine’s Day 2013 – that’s February 14th just in case – Producer/Director Michelle Bello‘s movie “Flower Girl” will land in Nigerian cinemas. The filmmaker is best known for her award winning film “Small Boy” which was honoured at the African Movie Academy Awards.

Flower Girl is a romantic comedy that involves the life of Kemi, a shy florist, who is desperate to tie the knot with her long-time boyfriend Umar. Contrary to her expectations, Umar suddenly breaks up with her, leaving her devastated. In a desperate bid to get him back, Kemi teams up with a most unlikely ally, Tunde Kulani, a famous playboy Nollywood star.

The movie addresses the issue of young women who are in a hurry to get married thinking only about their prefect wedding day and not the long-term commitment required by both individuals to make it last.

The next generation of amazing Nigerian stars meticulously assembled by Michelle includes Damilola Adegbite, (formerly in Tinsel), Chris Attoh (Tinsel), Eku Edewor (53 Extra), Bikiya Graham Douglas and Chuks Chukwujekwu, starring for the first time as a male lead. Also starring in the film are famous actors Patrick Doyle, Teni Aofiyebi and Tosan Edremoda-Ugbeye. This dynamic ensemble brings a whole new take on love in Nigeria and audiences are sure to have a highly entertaining experience watching Flower Girl when it is released in 2013.

With an all-star crew including Co-Producer Michelle Dede (Big Brother Nigeria), Art Director Bola Bello (AMAA award winner for Art Direction: Small Boy), award-winning Screenwriter Jigi Bello (Shooter, The Waiting Room) and Director of Photography James Costello (Inale, Last Flight to Abuja and Black November), this production is highly anticipated by filmmakers all across Africa.

Shot entirely on location, Flower Girl is Michelle’s love letter to Lagos and will feature locations familiar to many as well as some exciting parts of the city never seen before in a film. From churches to business hubs and from electrifying night life to beautiful lagoon views, Flower Girl captures modern-day Lagos in stunning high resolution that will be enjoyed by audiences everywhere.

You can watch the first teaser below and then check out promo photos of the cast in character!

    Now i see why Damilola left Tinsel…she probably had plans to feature in this movie and to think that she is the lead actress…Nice one girl!

    WTF………..a Nigerian movie and everyone there is speaking with a british accent kmt…… this like some kinda joke or something

      This is one of the most ignorant thing I have ever heard just because they are nigerian doesn’t mean they should start talking like illiterates, don’t get me wrong I’m not saying nigerian are, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with talking educated especially if it makes sense for the movie, its located in a city.
      FYI: I’m british and that is defiantly not a british accent.
      Peace, Love and Wisdom 😉

    • what

      December 13, 2012 at 9:55 pm

      Lol i kinda support what your saying in a way …but let it be clear English is our official language not our mother tongue/native language…… please who are you to say that people that d not speak fluently are not educated?……… is beyond that my dear…..some can speak but don’t have common sense…………so please dont’ think education = good english..

      WHAT!! was the word I was about to say…… to ebrufles.

      But What… answered u well. I second the comment…

      GOOD ENGLISH and GRAMMAR is the KOKO..

      Personally, I dont think there is anything such as British accent because it diluted… E.g. Each region or should I say county as a particular accent. Leeds accent different from Leicester and they are all BRITISH oo.. Imagine South East London accent is also different from North London.

      But I wont lie, some forming in this video… but hmm I guess the typical or average urban lagosian forms an accent to an extent.. LOL.

    so just because we wanna improve nollywood now means we have to take away the authenticity that makes it undeniably african (Nigerian)

  9. chuks

    December 13, 2012 at 5:32 pm

    ur right made……apart from damilola, everyone from these teaser seems to have some kind of foreign accent going on…… is going to appeal to the 170 million nigerians in nigeria……….no wonder they love genevieve, omotola, mercy johnson and the likes for their originality

    • Bebe

      December 13, 2012 at 9:42 pm

      Erm…. accent doesn’t bother us the way it bothers you guys in Diaspora! And I assure you we all understand fully! Most that dont wont bother coming to the cinemas anyway.

    Hahaha… I agree with @Chuks & @Made

    ermmmm!!! na wa o. if you have igbotic or yoruba accent na war, if not na fight. i tire, olu jacobs and joke silva both dont talk with african accent and yet no1 crucifies them, infact they are respected. me i dont have african accent too. sooooo??? i love the teaser thou, cant wait

    December 13, 2012 at 6:33 pm

    hmm…I want to see this film because for once a Naija film will actually have Naija scenery other than the interior of a house..and while the accent may vex me….that is how many young Nigerians speak, although a Naija/Pidgin accent would have made the ‘ are you going?” part funnier…

  13. Odine

    December 13, 2012 at 6:46 pm

    I’ll skip commenting on the many accents and say, I think 2013 is going to be a great year for Dami Adegbite, Naija movie makers don’t do many of our young budding talents justice, always talking bankable this, bankable that! So thanks to Michelle Bello for this. Can’t wait!

    I’m not sure that’s British accent. Most people mistake trying to speak clear English as feigning the British accent. They are trying to speak English the way it is meant to be spoken without all our bad habits. For our movies to get the world wide recognition we seek, they need to speak clearly so people of other nationalities will understand what they are saying. British accent is one of the most difficult accents to copy. It is too diverse. People from Liverpool,don’t speak like people fromNewcastle or worst still like their mancunian neighbours. Cockney is almost impossible to copy by someone not raised around London and the South. And trust me Cockney is not good English. So please let us not criticise the way they are speaking but appreciate their talents and efforts. And @ made, you don’t need to swear to make a point. Isn’t that the way of the Brits too?

      God bless you for this comment….i wonder why some people are so anti-progress and stereotyped…story line sounds familiar but still looking forward to the movie, the presentation looks interesting.

    normally i’d pass on romantic films, especially nollywood romance but this looks ok. people talking about accents, leave Eku alone biko. when regina askia and barabara soky used to form nobody disturbed them. the accents forging is annoying but if you can act and not sound retarded (mercy johnson, oge okoye, omotola, tonto dikeh are guilty of sounding stupid when they form accents) then it’s good.

    KAI! Some people can spoil a thing for you. Here I was, on some excited tip cause the movie looks interesting; next thing, people are criticizing it for the accent? Like seriously??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

    What is man pikin to do if they have a british accent cause they grew up (and are citizens?) in the UK?

    Sigh! I cant wait to watch this movie. Damilola looks like she nailed it and I must confess it is my first time seeing Damilola act.

    Cant wait to watch this will be at the cinema, on valentines day, plus tat was a short teaser, btw Eku Edewor and that guy cleary have an, accent that doesnt seem forged to me, they probably didnt have thier formative years in Nigeria, so hence the accent, so please guyz, just drop it already.

    Aha! Dami, so this is why you left Tinsel! Good for you. I was so getting tired (yawnnnn….!) of the sleepy, spoilt, moody, surly and taciturn Telema role. I was starting to think that was your real character! You go, girl! And we’ll done, Michelle Bello!
