The Cougars are in town!

On Tuesday 3rd December 2013, The Royal Arts Academy premiered its new movie – “Lagos Cougars” at the Silverbird Galleria, Victoria Island, Lagos.

The movie features Uche Jombo-Rodriguez, Daniella Okeke and Monalisa Chinda as cougars. Also starring in the production are Alex Ekubo, Bobby Michaels, Ifeanyi Kalu and Benjamin Touitou.

Desmond Elliot directed while Emem Isong produced the film.

For the launch, guests were asked to come in T-shirts and jeans, but we were glad to see some break from the rule. Spotted at the premiere were Rita Dominic, Uti Nwachukwu, Omoni Oboli, Bishop Ime Umoh, Segun Arinze, Yolanda Okereke, Susan Peters, Julius Agwu and IK Ogbonna.

 The movie will premiere across cinemas today Friday 6th December 2013.

      You are very delusional. you guys think you look better bcos of your hair. Some of you women are pretty but most of you guys are funny looking. Get off your high horse. No Ethiopian/Eritrean has even made it to the top miss universe or world before. Miss Nigeria won, Miss Angola won. Instead of you guys going around thinking you are the best, why don’t you focus on the hunger, starvation killing people in your country. I mean, Eritrea is like a hut, most villages in west Africa looks better than your whole country. You guys are nothing special.

      I know you are not Eritrean! You just want to spark trouble!!! Eritreans are well mannered and low profile people. My husband is from Eritrea and I am a Westaf!! Beautiful from A to Z ! I also blame that commentator who said: because of your hair! I am a full blooded Fulani women from west Africa with long silky hair! And I am jot Eritrean ! Beauty is not only about hair it is from within and comes in Many aspect! And for you eritreangodess: you are intelligent and you lack class! Because only low class people compare and criticize! Good luck

      funny thing is that ethiopian/ eritheans like arabs are
      only good looking until their thirties. it’s pretty much downhill
      after that.

      @eritreangoddess. Having a long face, long head, long nose,
      and long hair does not equal beautiful. I live in the DMV and there
      is a sizeable Ethiopean/Eritrean population here and I am not
      personally blown away by their looks. Get over yourself.

    • WestAfricanBeuaty

      December 7, 2013 at 11:14 pm

      And you felt the need to come onto a West African website
      to comment. Poor you, you just revealed that not only are you blind
      but you are also dull. Agbani Darego, Bianca Onoh Ojukwu, Oluchi,
      Genevieve Nnaji are classic Nigerian albeit African beauties. So
      instead of hating why don’t you get your pirate boyfriend to do us
      all a favor and shoot all of you to save y’all from starving to
      death. Oh and by the way check your history you have arab blood, we
      Africans consider you all to be mongrels.

    Bella I dont think u shoulda published what the skank bitch from Eritrea said insultin all west africans, it is simply going to divert the thread cos u know, most of us have venom mouths ready to cuss, but this time I will be a bigger person. I will leave your Ethiopian brothers to deal with you. No wonder they beat ya ass and kicked u out and today they r doing way better. ANUOFIAS. Anyway err body looks except I still think some specific ppl are sinking emem isongs brand with their bad acting eg, alexx, uti, monalisa etc. Lately when I see a movie by emem or collab with desmond, I just roll my eyes and yawn

    • solar

      December 6, 2013 at 6:19 pm

      Agreed with the bad acting if the listed artistes.

    • Royalty

      December 6, 2013 at 11:31 pm

      sadly i have to agree..though not all her productions are bad. The likes of imeh and rita, do a pretty decent job..but the rest, i do not know! and now adding the DANIELLA OKEKE…who cant Act for nothing..will only make her brand even worse!

    • I'm Rick James Bitch!

      December 7, 2013 at 12:00 am

      I don’t see a problem with them posting the Eritrean’s comment. It’s never that serious. She’s probably bored and trolling. If you know you are a bad bitch or nucca, then what’s the fuss?

    Has anyone else noticed that Rita Dominic is getting darker? And the darker she gets the more glowing and beautiful her skin has become. Compare this to a year or two ago when she was pale and looking old with all her pigmentation gone. When I tell people that all that cheap stuff they put in a tube is really not good for your skin, they try to argue.
    Uche Jombo you know I love you right? You know I would snatch a ho’s weave on your behalf right? That whole look is just wrong and I mean makeup, hair and outfit but I still love you.
    @eritreanho, I was going to go in on your a$$ until Felinda1 reminded me you are not worth it. So she saved you today, Halleluah! Don’t count on her tomorrow though. (what is that smell?).

      I also believe monalisa should lose the casper tone, she
      would look resplendent with a tan.

      lol you and me both. Seeing I am only 5ft 3, they make cute
      (I won’t say short) people like me look like dwarfs on stilts! It
      doesn’t help that 80% of the shoes in the shops are platforms so I
      have taken to online shopping like ebay and others to find some
      pretty dainty shoes.

  18. nene

    December 7, 2013 at 12:11 am

    ewwww! where do i even start?
    1. most people here look local, razz and i saw a lady wearing bum shorts. really?
    2. i know they r trying to market the movie, but wearing a shirt with the title is sooo razz and unprofessional. i’ve never seen a movie premiere any where in the world where this is done.
    2. monalisa chinda’s side profile pic is unflattering. and she should do us a favour and cover thhose legs
    3. emem should also stick to kaftans, my honest advice
    4. she looks like somethin from avatar http://cdn.bellanaija.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/Lagos-Cougars-Lagos-Premiere-December-2013-BellaNaija-041.jpg
    5. rita dominic KILLED this red carpet! i love this hair better than that crazy afro.
    6. mbong amata why are u bleaching? u loooked better before.

    i see a lot of people on this red carpet who can kiss emem’s feet just to be featured in her movie. best of luck guys.

You sound like a disgruntled actress that she refused at an audition or better still a producer who is jealous of her movie! Kpele, one day you go make am! Maybe a littel shade throwing and more praying will do the trick!

    I have to agree with the Eritriean’s comments. I am not
    from East or West Frica. Nigerians are extremely unattractive
    people and the women look like clowns with the weaves and
    makeup.

      Not being from east or west Africa does not give your statement any
      credibility.

    A11 you Skin bleaching phobes. Note that Anemia Can make someone who is light Skinned or a bit light look like they actually did some skin lightening. Women at the ages of these girls and above typically suffer anemia, in Some cases severe anemia due to heavy monthlies. Have a question for Mona -why the excess build up of fat around ya Knees?
