Against all odds, a young boy, from the devastatingly poor fishing slums of Lagos is determined to pursue the dreams of his brother who is murdered. With no support, but with focus, commitment, hard work, reliance on God and good moral judgment, how far does he go?

Born into abject poverty and thrust deep into to the drudgery fate has dealt him, George Dibiya (Okey Uzoeshi) ekes out a living in the treacherous murky waters of the waste deluged Lagos Lagoon. Just like thousands more kids in the many slums of Nigeria, his life story is already written and sealed by fate, even before he came into the world. And this is not of his making. The chances of getting any education and, maybe clawing his way out of the situation is zero to unlikely, at best.

But after the murder of his brother, George sets out to, not allow his brothers dream die. Along the way, he gets entangled with the stunningly beautiful Scarlet (Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde) “Blood in the Lagoon” is an emotionally charged and thought provoking movie that will keep you glued to your seat till the very end.

    Guys what is OMOTOLA Wearing for God”s sakes, has she lost her sense of good fashion and what type of dress to wear for a MOVIE PREMIERE in which you star in as a LEAD and what to wear for a cocktail or a dinner please Omotola get a better fashion stylist or you would be a star who always faults in our fashion books and just look at how your hair is, so bad and un-kept not proper for this occasion. i rest my case

      Na wa oh,such vitriol. Is she supposed to wear and evening gown or what? I think her dress is appropriate and suits her skin tone and her hair is far from unkempt. I don’t like her necklace, I feel it isn’t necessary but this is a good look.

      Which useless fashion book do you have? Oh shut it! All you these fake online fashionistas. Lol… Omotola looks amazing . Not digging the neck piece much but I guess she wanted to add a touch of red. Either way, she looks BEAUTIFUL.

      I looooooove Omotola’s look . What??? What’s wrong with you people? This is such an unusual twist to the Oleku common style. I love it! Fresh and unusual. Omotola is definately someone who thinks out of the box and yes she nailed it! Love it.

      the fist thing i noticed was how beautifully well the dress sits on her. was shocked to find out some people think otherwise. any ways, she nailed it as far as i am concerned and i think i dont badly badly with fashion taste

      @iamnephiza I know right? I feel like Bellanaija needs to add the thumps down icon next to the love this. Ahn Ahn… Omotola looks elegant and clean. This is the REAL DIVA! A woman who can wear anything and her charisma and larger than life demeanor just carries it! She looks different and unique. Bow down bitches!!! This is SURELY your queen! She reminds me of Angelina Jolie( remember when she turned that blue dress around for the oscars?) .,, they always just break the rules and still slay as QUEENS.

      Aunty Kemi not every day long evening gown. Go to Hollywood U see what they were at oscars not to talk of their premiere, U won’t catch Julia Roberts in evening gown always. I remember she wore a gown this Omotola length to the Emmys, U will see full pant suits in Hollywood movie premieres so madam no dey form fashionista abeg. I thought she looked beautiful, the dress nd shoe go well, just the necklace that’s a bit off other than that this woman is stunning biko.

      Look for some cold water and take a long sip! You seem to be on a very high horse. I’m no fashion person or anything close to that. For all I care, Omotola looks good. What the hell is fashion btw?? Whatever you think should have been appropriate for her is also somebody’s idea. She chose another person’s idea the same way you think she would have been better following somebody else’s, and guess what? She looks fab! Take several seats…breathe in….breathe out…sit back and take another sip of the water I earlier recommended.

    Her wrap dress and sandals are lovely (that color really makes her glow). The neck piece was very unnecessary.

    Ummm… my Houston brethren… I hate to ask but what’s going on here?

  14. Cece

    September 18, 2014 at 3:20 pm

    Not a fan of the styling, but Omotola is gorgeous inside and out!

    The outfit is gorgeous…she looks stunning….although she could have used a more regal neckpiece.Either way she looks good.

    I love the dress but the plasticky looking neckace cheapened her look. Plus with that neckline, she didnt even need a neck piece

  23. Ruth

    September 18, 2014 at 4:18 pm

    Its funny how people who act like fashionista, criticizing every fashion look a hotmess in real life. Thats why they can only give their delusional opinion on comment section. Omotola looks good, she could have fixed one or two things but not bad as many of these commenters are crying about.

  24. nene

    September 18, 2014 at 4:25 pm

    omotola was a showstopper in her prime, but she looks tired and weird in these pictures.

  25. PD Young Billionaire

    September 18, 2014 at 4:27 pm

    With or without make up,Omotola is beautiful!!!Her outfit is simple n nice,i think she shldn’t have used the neck piece though but she’s a diva any day.I like….


    September 18, 2014 at 4:39 pm

    I thought movie sets have make up artists, can they please add some Visine and pressed powder to their bags. Lord have messy on those shiny faces and red eyes in the movie

  27. olajumoke

    September 18, 2014 at 4:40 pm

    I dont think am feeling the trailer that much talkless of seeing the movie..However her hair is untidy and she did not need that neckpiece….

    The woman is wearing a dress not a gown, for those of you that don’t know the difference. Don’t like the neck piece, but I think she looks lovely as usual.

  31. Viv

    September 18, 2014 at 5:41 pm

    To be honest, this is the best I h seen Omotola look. She looks young, fresh and beautiful. She could have done away with the neckpiece. But she’s glowing … and looks her age not all those “mama pieces” iconic invanity bestows on the poor lady.

    All I want to say is Waoh! OmoT is gorgeous for daysssssss! This is hands down the most beautiful woman in entertainment hands down! This woman can wear Rags and still intimidate every woman in the godamm room.

    September 18, 2014 at 6:18 pm

    Hmmm…I’m actually curious about this movie and can’t wait to see it. I’m proud of Nollywood and its efforts really; seeing its evolution through movies like this. Its actors and actresses are also evolving in their craft. Omotolla, I admire that she’s more than an actress. She’s a model, business woman, won 2013 Time 100 most influential people in the world for her philanthropy and activism; not forgetting she is a wife and a mother of 4! True, I’ve seen her look better… But she’s still pretty!

    September 18, 2014 at 6:25 pm

    I am team omotola but that cheap necklace???? I have exactly the same necklace bought on ebay for $7! I hope nobody sold it to you for some ridiculous price. I wear it casually on jeans and yo casual functions, and that knot is a bit rough….beautiful woman nevertheless!

  37. Shadie

    September 18, 2014 at 7:09 pm

    Eww she is a hot mess, the hair, necklace, unflattering dress, cheap shoes. Omosexy please spend some of your endorsement money, Genny is clearly spending her money. Get a good team together and package yourself well. Haba!!enough of this mgbeke looking business.

    • Stacey

      September 18, 2014 at 9:17 pm

      Well wait for a genny thread and go and roll over her spent money you troll. Omotola spends her money wisely. She has kids entering university, has properties all around the world and still looks this gooooood after four kids! Your cheap comment belongs in the gutter where you crawled out from!

    • FLYNN

      September 19, 2014 at 11:25 am

      You STFU don’t ever mention Genny here, Omotola has kids and so fu**ing what? Genny has a beautiful kid and many young looking women also have kids and are great achievers, so don’t bug us with that, and talking about property don’t even go there cos the person you are comparing her with is high up there and has high octane property in high brow areas and she is also super rich, check out her high profile endorsements… can’t touch this hue!!!!!!!!!!

    September 19, 2014 at 7:43 am

    Shadie and Bola the expensive commentators. I laugh in Spanish. You are the ones who need to be told the truth really. If omotola looks cheap to you then your eyes need to be cleaned with acid! People just come online and out of jealousy try to throw low points! Maka why? This celebs are trying oh. Kai. You probably can’t afford to buy the wristwatch on her hand but you can come online to throw shade. Smh!
