The 'All Black' themed premiere set the ambiance for the evening of what was to become a spellbinding film experience. In attendance were the Hollywood stars, Dr Sid, Uti Nwachukwu, Osas Ighodaro, Latasha Ngwube, Mocheddah, Ozzy Agu and a host of others.

On premiering 'Queen and Slim' in Nigeria, Kaluuya revealed that an African premiere of his movies has been a long time dream and Nigeria has been a dream come true.

Written by Emmy-award winning TV writer, Lena Waithe, 'Queen and Slim', is based on a black couple Queen ( Jodie Turner-Smith) and Slim (Daniel Kaluuya) who become fugitives after Slim guns down a white policeman in self defense. It's a tragic love story about black love and black excellence.
