Ghanaian actress, Nadia Buhari will this weekend storm Nigeria for the
premiere of Bursting Out and Holding Hope. Nadia, the face of Devon
whose last appearance in Nigeria was before the $2000 slam on foreign
actors and actresses is expected in the country to grace the premiere
and also be one of the actresses to be on the red carpet.
Nadia who stars in Holding Hope alongside popular Nigerian actors like
Uche Jombo, Desmond Elliot, Biola Williams, Ngozi Nwosu, Rukky Sanda
played a lead role in the movie which narrates the story of Mrs.
Badmus and her wayward son, Sidney; for Sidney to inherit the wealth
of his mother who is dying of cancer, Sidney must cross a stumbling
block and that stumbling block is no where near easy. The movie
springs complexity out of a not complicated plot. The story was
written by Uche Jombo, Emem Isong, and Uduak Uguamanam.
In a related development, Majid Michael will also be expected in
Nigeria on Sunday, August 8 at the same event. Majid who also
featured in another Royal Arts Academy Production movie, Bursting Out
will be gracing the venue of the premiere of the two movies.
Bursting Out which stars Genevieve Nnaji and Majid Michael is a
romantic comedy which humorously shows the expectations of the
Nigerian society on the single career woman. Zara’s friends share
these societal views and force Zara through a series of dates in a bid
to marry her off. Zara isn’t swayed by any of the men and insists that
she’s happy alone. But is she really? Bursting Out is produced by Emem
Isong and directed by Desmond Elliot and Daniel Ademinokan.
Holding Hope and Bursting Out will be premiered on Sunday, August 8,
2010 at Silverbird Galleria, Lagos before doing rounds at ‘community
cinema houses’ across the country.
