The producer of the movie Okey Oku has issued a statement explaining what happened.
You may have been expectant and a bit curious as to why We haven’t done any post about The Boss is Mine movie Uyo premiere which was scheduled for the 10th of January at Ibom Tropicana AkwaIbom.
Well after an amazing premiere in Enugu Mr @okechukwuoku and his team set out for Uyo the next day. We all arrived at the venue and confirmed all was well and subsequently set up for Red carpet.
All intended guests arrived, Iyanya, Selebobo, Ime Bishop, Ini Akpabio, Mike Godson, Daniella Chioma Okeke, The commissioner for Tourism and a host of important dignitaries all present for an explosive event.
At about 4pm, Silverbird cinema power supply went off, a situation we believed a huge company like that could handle and are prepared for. To our greatest shock, this power outage last an hour, two, three and our guest got apprehensive. We approached the management of Silverbird and was told their generator got damaged.
@okechukwuoku personally decided to visit the generator house to see this and was perplexed to see 4 dead generators. He was made to understand that they where waiting for their engineer to come. We waited till about 8:30pm then our guests started leaving. Shortly after the engineers arrival the generator powered on. Silverbird management was insensitive to the damage they were causing us as they were busy running their own business, wondering how possible that was as one of their screens was working and tickets were selling.
We all @thebossisminemovie and @okechukwu want to use this time to say that Silverbird will not go scot free after messing up Mr. @okechukwuoku company’s pedigree, shaming our esteemed guest and causing us massive financial loss. We will not let this issue stride. Our sincere apologies to all who travelled from many parts of the country to attend this premiere.
We will do our best to stop Nigerian business practitioners from getting away with mishaps like this. THE BOSS IS MINE is a great movie and we will not let this kill the already growing love for it. GOD BLESS YOU Signed By Okechukwu Oku #thebossisminemovie @thebossisminemovie
Hopefully the filmmakers can bounce back after this disappointment.
