Shebi I told you people to go and buy ticket, you people refused?

The premiere of Basira in London – a Philippa Abraham production starring Eniola Badmus – was a collage of Who’s Who in London.

If you weren’t there, you missed the chance to see the true fabric of the Nigerian society in London – glitz, glamour, laughter and if you were lucky, you even got to go to the After Party!

The event kicked off properly around 9pm, and the beautiful ladies and the gentlemen just kept pouring in! Very soon, Greenwich Odeon became a no-go zone as it was teeming with people waiting to see the stars arrive.

Theodora Ibekwe-Oyebade did not disappoint in a flowing burgundy gown, she was all smiles and happiness on the night.

Eniola Badmus. Hmmm…maybe this is the change that APC have been promising, because when  you see the trailers and the candid shots of the film – Basira being a complete razzoid in her Wellington boots and then she turns up on the red carpet? The change was nothing short of miraculous!

All 6 screens were filled to capacity and the maestro DJ Abass of DJA Media was on hand to make sure that the event ran without a hitch and to add his special brand of feel-good factor to the shenanigans.
