It was a gathering of the yesteryears’ actors and actresses. Except for Chioma Chukwuka-Akpotha who looked stunning in a print dress which she accessorized with a red clutch bag, gold earrings and bracelets.
The world premiere of Bond Emeruwa’s directed movie , “Daisy” at Ozone Cinemas, Yaba, Lagos, last weekend, could be described as “a reunion of the pioneers of the nation’s movie industry.”
A cross-section of the veteran actors that graced the event.
From Saint Obi to Emeka Ossai, Keppy Ekpenyong Bassey, Sunny Mcdon, Charles Novia, Chico Ejiro, Mmamdu Ali-Balogun and many others, it was indeed, a moment of felicitation, laughter and re-assemblage of the old horses.
Emeruwa informed that the presence of his contemporaries at the event gave credence to the quality of movies that his generation is noted for.
According to him, the movie which is co-produced by Emma Isikaku, Tony Anih and Peace Anyiam-Osigwe would hit the cinemas from next month, and thereafter, explore various distribution modes including new media.
For Emeruwa, who is the immediate past President of Directors Guild of Nigeria (DGN) and current Chairman of the Coalition of Nollywood Guilds and Associations (CONGA),” Daisy” is just another of his attempt to affect lives through movies.
The film, shot in both Nigeria and Ghana, showcased the best of Nollywood and Ghollywood actors and actresses, including Olu Jacobs, Ebele Okaro Onyuike, Jim Lawson, Peter Bunoh amongst others. It addresses the themes of trust and justice, borne out of contemporary real life situation.
