It was an amazing day as House on the Rock Church, Natives FilmWorks, Michelangelo Productions and the Bolanle Austen-Peters Production premiered the much anticipated movie “93 Days” in Nigeria.

After a successful screening at the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the world premiere of 93 Days at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), ’93 Days’ premiered with a bang on Tuesday, September 13th 2016, at the House On The Rock church, with celebrities like Joke Silva, Olu Jacobs, Bimbo Akintola, Bolanle Austen-Peters, Chioma Chukwuka, Timi Dakolo, Michelle Dede, Ozzy Agu, Chibuike Amaechi, Seun Ajayi and Segun Arinze amongst others in attendance.

In addressing the question many have been asking about why the church is involved in a movie premiere, the Senior Pastor and founder of House On The Rock church, Pastor Paul Adefarasin, said in his statement at the press conference:

“I ask why not? The God whose we are and whom we serve has taught us that faith in Him was never meant to be lived on the periphery of the world but rather instead to stand tall in the center, as light to the world. The underlying message of 93 days is a powerful one which teaches, in experiential terms, many values and principles of the Holy Writ and we are humbled to be a part of a story of true heroism, bravery, sacrifice and the quest to be greater together! For Nigeria countless lessons for nation building and transformation can be gleaned and internalized from this harrowing yet uniting occurrence. As a nation we exemplified Helen Keller’s maxim that “alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.”

I dare say that by collaborating with Nollywood, we (the church and the press) have the opportunity of using our places of impact; be they the pen or the pulpit, to share exemplary virtues that propagate the values of nation building and transformation while at the same time supporting the art and distribution of movies.”

A lot of notable people also honoured the occasion with their presence, including Bishop Mike Okonkwo, Rotimi Amaechi, Minister of transport, Chief Olu Okeowo, Joke Okeowo, Jimi Agbaje, Barrister Dapo Abiodun, Bamidele Abiodun, Nkiru Anumudu, American Consul General to Nigeria Martin Brennan, Governor Akinwunmi Ambode represented by Hon. Abass, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila and many more.

All guests, out of the excitement of conquering the Ebola virus, signed on the 93 Days wall with lots of encouraging, motivating and prayerful messages.

    Ifeanyi – forever a beauty.

    Is Timi Alaibe following Amaechi around now? Wonderful!

    The two ladies wearing the same type of fabric with Laila St Matthew Daniel (Mama Funke. K) look like her.

    Explains why I was sat in traffic for over two hours on a holiday!!! My Muslim friend even accused us Christians of having a service on Salla just to spite them (story for another day), thank goodness it was just a premiere.
