    I attended the premiere and it was great, I’m glad few politicians were there and I sincerely hope that they went home with something. #StopViolence #Selma #Glory

      I hope Nollywood would learn to do movies that depict events in Nigeria? A good one to start would be “Chibok” OR “Baga”, as it relates to present situation? Selma is depicting a struggle for voting rights in America, why can’t Baga or Chibok do same for Nigeria? Nollywood I don give una idea O, make una thank me later.

      You obviously haven’t seen the new movies recently released! New Nollywood is doing great things.

    Is there something wrong with Jimi Agbaje’s health? He looks old and haggard in real life, not like the posters. Omotola looks fatter, I love David Oyelowo

    Wow! Kudos to house on the Rock church. The organization was flawless, it felt like we were in a US premiere. Food and drinks were flowing on the carpet. Carmen and David were so nice to everyone. Nice one pastor paul! By the way, the cameras didn’t do well for Omotola, I saw her as she arrived and she was amazeballs

    Omotola’s look isnt bad but she seem to be finner than the way she looked for this event. The outfit made her look older than her real age. Beautiful peeps every whr!

    That pink dress is pretty.

    Omoni Oboli – the fabric of her outfit is like the thin jersey fabric high street stores used to use to make slim fit maxi skirts back in the day, circa 1988!

    See how simple the mega stars (David Oyelowo and Carmen Ejogo) looked. Marvellous. The whole ensemble does nothing for her boyish frame.

    Gaskia I was there and Nollywood represented well. Omotola looked like fire so I don’t know what this photographer took fa! When omotola walked in ( though late) she looked like a queen I was like Ehn hen that’s what I’m talking about! The other actors too tried. The movie was okay though sometimes too dialogish but nice message!

    There’s something cheap about Omoli’s outfit (my opinion not hating)… It’s “IG mass production shop” vibe…..

    Omotola actually looked good o! She just didn’t pose well but i do not get why our Naija “celebs” like coming late to functions. Omotola, Julius Agwu, Femi (shuga) and Toke *side eye*, u should know better biko. Olu Jacobs and Joke Silva shaa, goose pimples when they worked past, CHAI! But thumbs up to the host sha o!…Mrs. Dayo Benjamin (hope that is her name?) Kai, Pastor Paul got nothing on her mehnnn!
