The Department

Hey Guys! Remember how I said there would be loads of collaborations and giveaways in my 2015 goals post. The winners of the first giveaways for the year were announced over the weekend and the first two redeemed their prizes at the exclusive premier of The Department Film :)

@teniola_king and @hephzibah287

Hephzibah and her plus one, Omena
Small Chops
Yummy yum yum
Tomi of PitymySimplicity, she was Teni's date for  the movie

Funmi, my date for the movie

With the guy who played Shehu in the movie, he acted with a very convincing Hausa accent

Top: New Look (Present from my mama)
Riding Pants: American Apparel
Gold Sandals: Carvela (Kurt Geiger) from Shop Bella Cosa

So, it was my first time attending a premiere and I found it really interesting. There was a red carpet reception with  small chops, chapman, fayrouz cocktails and many media men. 

I don't want to tell you about the movie because I hate it when people spoil movies for me. But, you all should go watch it as it's out in the cinema's today. 

Review by @teniola_king: Nice plot line, it was well casted, good comedy and the intro was top notch! The movie was fantabulous :)

Review by @hephzibah287: It was a good one. Interesting plot. Storyline was engaging. The choice of actors, I can't say much as I've been away from Nollywood scene. Jide Kosoko delivered (clapping smiley). The whole execution made for a good #MoviePremiere, I had a good time!

Now,  I'll say something about the actors, I'll call them New age Nollywood Actors.
Osas Ighodaro: The main female character is in Tinsel and I saw her on stage at For Coloured Girls last year, she pulled her character off very well
OC Ukeje: The hearthrob of many females in Nigeria. I've watched him in Gidi Up, Knock Knock, Alan Poza, etc He has so many movies and series under his belt, Great Guy
Somkele Iyamah: I saw her on screen for the first time in Gidi Up, she played the Character Yvonne, I love the way she acts and she is really pretty too. Her sister Andrea Iyamah makes amazing swim wear, y'all should check her out, Talented Designer.
Majid Michel: Ghanian Actor, Extremely popular, I'm sure you all know who he is.
Desmond Eliot: Been in the industry for a long time, he's really  well known too.

So, I totally enjoyed the movie, Big ups to Inkblot productions. A production company that is made up of 4 diverse, young and upwardly mobile Nigerian's: Omotayo,Chinaza, Damola and Zulu 
Omotayo,  actually taught at the school I served at which is how we met. You never know when life will bring you closer to a person so treat everyone you meet well and go watch the movie. 
Watch Knock Knock too, it's an online series by Inkblot Productions.

Let me know what you think of it!
