As is the custom at the Toronto International Film Festival, some actors, directors and producers strike a pose for portraits during press rounds.

So far we’ve spotted a couple of Nollywood stars who have had their portraits taken and the photos are simply picture perfect.

    Is Somkele not the one that was talking of point and asking Genny silly question?

    BN the earlier you remove that over lapping advert , the better for you. So no other place to put advert ? You have to cover half of the pay. Makes it hell difficult to type and see what one is typing . Biko do something. It’s nerve scratching
