Basira in London - Eniola Badmus

The Odeon Cinema, London played host to the movie premiere of Basira In London which saw about 2000 people in attendance surpassing all previous records from a Nollywood movie on Friday August 21, 2015.

The premiere took six halls and promoter  Theodora Ibekwe-Oyebade, said: "This film broke all previous records as in the past, the maximum number of halls we have sold for a Nollywood premier is three. This is a good thing for Nollywood as it indicates that our films are beginning to make greater inroads into the UK. We have set a new record of using six halls for a film in the UK and hopefully, this will grow further."

A humorous and comic film depicting Basira played by Eniola as a raw Nigerian migrant who came to the UK and struggled to cope with the cultural difference, the film was full of twists and turns.

Produced and directed by Philippa Abraham, Basira in London features Nollywood actors Eniola Badmus, Tolu Yesufu, Theodora Ibekwe-Oyebade and many more.
