Ebony Life Films, in marking the 2016 International Women’s Day (IWD) on the 8th of March 2016, hosted about 200 women to an screening of ‘FIFTY’ at the Genesis Deluxe Cinemas.
According to Mo Abudu; “It is international women’s day and I thought it would be nice to extend a gesture to women everywhere of all ages and background and treat them to a private screening of our movie FIFTY.
This is also a girl’s night out that will have champagne, popcorn and special cupcakes served all in a bid to celebrate women as we all have a story worth celebrating. It promises to be so much fun”, said the Founder of EbonyLife Films and Executive producer of FIFTY.
The movie is a quest by Mo Abudu’s to showcase African women coming of age, filled with similar aspirations and challenges faced by their contemporaries everywhere, while yet figuring out unresolved traditions and duties.
The star packed special screening had in attendance a great mix of movie and music personalities, captains of industry and socialites including leading characters from the movie Ireti Doyle, Dakore Egbuson-Akande, Omoni Oboli, Nse Ikpe Etim, Kemi ‘Lala’ Akindoju and Uzor Osimkpa who were given bouquets of flowers in celebration of their roles.
Also in attendance were music sensations Omawumi and Ruby Gyang, Mosun Ogunbanjo, Nollywood actress Kehinde Bankole and ‘Nigeria’s most talked about woman’, Olajumoke Orisaguna amongst many others. The women who were behind the scenes during the movie were not left out of the celebration as they were each given a gift by Mo Abudu.
