Nollywood stunnas Omotola Jalade Ekeinde & Genevieve Nnaji recently visited a radio station in Lagos to promote the release of their new movie IJE –The Journey. According to the movies facebook page:
It’s the story of two sisters with unbreakable bonds of loyalty and the power of the human spirit. When Anya, the eldest of the two, vows to chase her dreams of glamour in the Hollywood Hills, her younger sister—Chioma—warns of her of the dark side of the American Dream. Now, years later, and in a world away from the life she knew, Anya is charged with the murder of three men, one of them her powerful husband.
Its already won 8 awards- Las Vegas International Film Festival, Arizona Black Film Showcase and Canada International Film Festival to name a few. Plus it got official selection at 23 film festivals around the world…Nice!
And get this people, it was directed and produced by a Nigerian woman! Chineze Anyaene (GIRL POWER!)
It premiered this past weekend and is already getting rave reviews…even topping box offices across Nigeria knocking out Inception, Shrek Forever After & The Sorcerer’s Apprentice!
I can’t wait to watch it…hope it shows in the UK!
For the longest time Omotola and Geneveive were rumoured to hate each other, there were so called “insults” traded through the press and an alleged battle to be Nigeria’s Number one sex symbol. But from the look of these pictures, looks like nothing but love going all around…awww (or they could still be in character?). Whatever the situation is they are both looking good, loves, loves the skinny jeans on Genny, homegirl has been representing lately with the fashion.
