EbonyLife TV brings Nollywood & Music Stars Kate Henshaw, Funke Akindele, Rita Dominic, Uche Jombo & Banky W to Tinapa for “New Horizons” | Photos



Nollywood DivasSomeone just dropped a glam bomb in Tinapa and we’ve caught the shrapnel of exclusive pictures first-hand, just for you. Nollywood heavyweights Kate Henshaw, Rita Dominic, Funke Akindele and Uche Jombo alongside music star Banky W took Tinapa by Storm for a short film/TV project titled “New Horizons“.

The project is directed by Tope Oshin Ogun and from what we hear, the focus is domestic violence in Nigeria.

What we do know is that the new show features these Nollywood Divas collaborating ‘in the production of a brilliant and pulsating short film that spotlights the plight of women across Africa who have to bear the pains of domestic abuse, a crime far too familiar but rarely spoken about.’

Also, the new reality TV Series is set to highlight the life and times of the spectacular actresses and filmmakers in the thrilling 3-week filming journey. The series will end with a preview of the Director’s cut and will be followed up with a Pan African launch later on in the year on EbonyLife TV.

In a statement by Pamela Ofoegbu, she said:

“We have signed up four electrifying Nollywood divas who will each play a role in the short film as well as be Executive Producers of this film as we see them in action behind the lens.”

And speaking on the divas, she said:

“Due to their tenacity, talent and achievement on and off the silver screen, [the] Divas will give stellar attention to the silent issue of domestic abuse while giving voices to those unable to speak up, as they raise the spotlight on a very dark issue.”

Mo Abudu also further explained:

“The Reality TV Series being filmed right now follows the highly successful recent Wrap-Up of one of our flagship programming, ‘Sistaz!’. Our current filming will bring our viewers to that compelling intersection between entertainment and reality as we bring some of Nigeria’s most celebrated Nollywood Screen goddesses to highlight and fight the scourge of domestic abuse, an issue prevalent in the African, and indeed, Nigerian daily life, through Reality TV.”

      Its funny when people can’t find something wrong with you,they will make up womething to be wrong with you. There is absolutely nothing wrong with Funke’s dressing. You do not know whether some of the pictures, were taken at rehearsals, and her role, required that she dressed corporate, as opposed to the other ladies. Have a seat!

    People keep praising Kate Henshaw for looking young. It’s a beautiful thing that she does but how can you ignore her awful dress sense? Abegi!

    I see that Funke is embracing her feminine side. She is really stepping it up. Love it all!!! I also love the idea of the project. I trust that it will be well executed, what with the calibre of people involved, especial Mo. I can hardly wait to watch.

    @Sonia, Kate Henshaw comes across as a woman who is comfortable in her own skin. That’s what you get as you age well. She may not be fashionable but she is stylish. Style outlives fashion. Leave her alone. She doesn’t have to dress like you to be accepted. Her work and achievements speak for her.

      Gbam!!! Well said. Nobody should be critised for not being “fashionable”. Stylish trumps fashionable. That is why young girls nowadays will do anything to make money just so they are regarded as fashionable.
