Pastor Paul Adefarasin echoed the sentiments of the #United4Peace initiative “…the interests of Nigeria cannot be determined along religious lines nor according to political, ethnic or social indices alone. The tragic events in parts of this country are a harsh reminder that dialogue, peace and religious tolerance are crucial to our continued co-existence”

The presence of the lead actor and actress of the highly acclaimed movie, David Oyelowo and Carmen Ejogo who played Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Corretta Scott King respectively, added to the excitement of the day. Both actors patiently answered questions from the press, took fan photos and had a really nice time. David Oyelowo’s wife could be seen lugging a camera, taking in the experience as much as she could.

    J.K Randle – forever handsome.

    H.P.A – forever beautiful.

    Deola Sagoe – I want that dress.

    For some reason, Omotola looks better here in her dress than in the previous pictures shown here.

    BN, you have Ifeyinwa & Ituah Ighodalo. His name is Asue. He’s Ituah’s brother.

    But where is Toke Makinwa-Ayida? She gushed all over instagram about going to see the movie, went as far as thanking the church for the invite and someone even said she was going with her cleavage exposed but I cant find her anywhere in the pictures above>>>>>> Where was Toke?

    I see my mum in one of the pictures looking fabulous! Photographer no see mi ni? Abi am not fine enough? *talk to the hand sign* lol… It was a nice event . Nose to see a better picture of Omosexy I was so upset with that other picture post because quite frankly, she was one of the most outstanding persons . Aunty joke silva and mrs Nkiru Anunudu love you guys but too much going on …too busy. Deola Sagoe love love love.
    My best looks for the premiere were definately. Deola Sagoe and Omotola Jalade.

    It’s omotola for me all the way. It looks like she put thought into her outfit . I see the Selma colour is blue as well. She also looks like the star if the movie I stead of the Carmen lady. Chima my guy , you look good. Nice to see sir randle. When will the movie be in cinemas? Hope they ( Nogerian Hollywood stars) think more if doing collaborative work with Nollywood people.
    Start with the likes of a Omotola please. She reps us well.

    Thank you, pastor for showing “Selma”. It’s great that Nigerians are educated and have the awareness of the struggles of African Americans. The civil rights movement. Their role as the largest Black Country, and maybe this will bring some type of revolution and perspective about Africa and black people as a whole. Dr king stood for peace and justice.

    The Jacobs are simply classic. Omotola looks beautiful as usual.
    Aderonke is a very beautiful woman.
    I like Belinda’s hair and she’s pretty. Arikiye looks nice. Men are stepping up, they look handsome.
