Nollywood star Chioma Chukwuka-Akpotha premiered her movie On Bended Knees on Sunday 5th May 2013 at the Ikeja City Mall, Ikeja, Lagos.

The movie star was not one to miss on the red carpet. Sporting bangs, she arrived in a red chiffon dress which features a strap and pink bow on the bodice, leopard skin pumps and a diamond ring.

On Bended Knees which was produced by Chioma Chukwuka-Akpotha and Emem Isong, is centered around a man Pastor Reuben (Seun Akindele) who is fiercely passionate about the things of God and committed to the church but neglects his wife. Temptation sets in and the wife (Chioma Chukwuka-Akpotha) cheats. Top Nollywood director Lancelot Oduwa Imaseun directed the flick.

Celebrities spotted at the event include Kate Henshaw, OC Ukeje, Ini Edo, Rita Dominic, Omoni Oboli, Alex Ekubo, Annie Idibia, Susan Peters, Majid Michel and Emem Isong.

      Exactly. Very poor angles like the one with the girl in purple. Her head looks so big compared to her body.

  10. Michelle

    May 6, 2013 at 7:09 pm

    The person who took the photos deserves to be spanked seriously! What is this? Everyone looks bad except Belinda. Poor quality. Maybe its the camera though

    Susan Peters that thing wey u wear, e good for your eyes? Belinda work it
    girl, looking fierce. Chioma looks great too. As for the rest, there is room for improvement.

  14. asgrl

    May 6, 2013 at 7:11 pm

    most folks looked good to great. Rita Dominic’s outfit was a fail. Made her look like a Chippendale’s reject.

  16. Keek Dat

    May 6, 2013 at 7:11 pm

    Chioma, Kate, Ini & Rita I like. Ken Okoli got nice there. But the surrounding looks tacky. The posters look so razz pinned up like that.

    • Naveah

      May 6, 2013 at 7:46 pm

      I don’t know if your question was hypothetical or not but in case it wasn’t, she is wearing an Indian Sari. Now why? I don’t know since the last time I checked she was NOT Indian and secondly, I am yet to see an Indian actress wear one of our native clothing. I guess she wanted to stand out HMMMM


      May 6, 2013 at 8:46 pm

      May God bless you for this comment!!!!….. I CAN’T STAND THIS SO CALLED “INDIAN DRESSING” You guys might be wondering why I am screaming. make una no vex na as the thing dey pain me for my people!!

    • bignaijababe

      May 6, 2013 at 9:28 pm

      I believe you meant to write rhetorical not hypothetical……………

    • jenny

      May 6, 2013 at 10:03 pm

      Is there anything wrong with wearing a Sari? Dont we all like seeing white people wearing African attire, why is it different in this? Lol, anyway, I think the issue here should be the lack fit of this particular attire…

    • stacie

      May 7, 2013 at 7:04 pm

      oh pls hush. What’s wrong in that? Dont we get excited when we see Beyonce and co rocking ankara?? Besides others are in English attire. If she wishes to wear a sar then let her be! move to the curb abeg.

    Rita Dominic and Ini Edo need to sack their stylists. Kate Henshaw always looks on point and is forever looking young.

    Susannah Peters oooooo!!!!!!! Wetin do u ooooo? Where u think u dey go? This has passed d level of anger to ridiculous laughter.
    Sylvia Oluchy, that bow is of life. The outfit is wrong for the occasion.
    Annie Idibia, sigh! This is better than the sports wear but u still have a lot to learn. U can afford a stylist, pls get one.
    Ini Edo, those pumps look like they are running from ikeja to abuja – so pointed. LOL

    Congrats to Chioma. May she keep soaring high. I was at the premiere and enjoyed the movie. Seun Akindele and that Chet guy did it for me. Nollywood is one of the reasons I am proud to be Nigerian. Something positive in the midst of all the negativity.

    May 6, 2013 at 8:51 pm

  34. Winny

    May 6, 2013 at 9:57 pm

    Kate looks frumpy and cheap a good starch and iron would have done the trick.
    Rita!! Rita ur trying too hard to stay fashionable just rest already it’s tiring, ur so looking like a joker’s clown now.

    Why is this Morris Sesay person posing like a girl? Yuck. Rita Dominic is too beautiful for that outfit! Ini Edo’s skin in flawless, but she always looks like a cartoon character to me. And Kate Henshaw…YES!!! I want to look like that when I get older.

    May 7, 2013 at 7:35 am

    1.Chioma is a beauty!! But somehow not feeling her dress much tho. Looks to me like something a 16yr old wud wear, maybe if that bow wasnt there….Luv the pink & red combo tho.
    2.Rita my luv, really??? Soo disappointed cos this ur look is a joke! I know u cudda done waaaaay better.
    3.Ini Edo: No ma’am! Very tacky!
    4.Omoni actually looks lovely even tho the hairdo was’nt really it. Nice dress!
    5.Ogor Effiok!…Wharrahell??? Hahahaa…from head to toe i just dont get! Razz look dear!
    6.The Chidi Oguamanam guy is handsome!
    7.Babe in white dress! **sigh**…Did u really do this to yourself???! U know very well u gotta get some real good strong strappless bra that supports well well before rocking that dress. :::::::::::::>>
    8.Susie P is a very pretty woman but that Indian sari look didnt really wrk well. The fit was’nt that good, but very gorgeous colours.

    just my thots exactly Aduke on Chioma’s dress. Rita likes to have fun, so can’t fault her really. Wish Annie would wipe out all the ugly tattoos she has on, it always ruins everything no matter how well she’s dressed.

    May 7, 2013 at 9:14 am

  56. Olori

    May 7, 2013 at 10:03 am

    What’s with Ini Edo and the eye brows??? She should put less effort on the eyebrows and more effort on the outfit. Belinda, Meg, Kate and Omoni look beautiful.
    Annie…*smh* Quit trying so hard. Less is more.


    May 7, 2013 at 10:55 am
