Mona's Miscellany of Items!

LOL what a very razz post title...let's just say I didn't know what to call this post, it's a mixture of What's Ons and Check Outs. In no particular order I bring you:


(I) London Premier of The Widow




Premiers of this Kingsley Ogoro Nollywood blockbuster have been held in Lagos, Maryland and Abuja. Now, they are bringing it to The Broadway Theatre in Catford, London this Saturday - 4th November from 4pm. It also consists of a concert starring Styl-Plus, Sunny Nneji, Segun Arinze and Angelica (My Naija Guy - see Bella's post). I believe it is worth attending. Check out the theatre details for more info.

(II) Check out Laspapi's blog for details of Molara Wood's Writers' Best Books of 2006 (deadline - Friday, 3rd Nov)

(III) The Last King of Scotland....................In 1979, Idi Amin was responsible for the murders of 300,000 of his Ugandan country men.





This Blockbuster Movie about Idi Amin is coming to our cinemas soon and looks like it's going to be a hit. Watch the preview here



IV) PROUDLY NIGERIAN

  • Hollywood and Nigeria brought us Nollywood! Then we had -

Mona has promised to give us each a copy of the'the Widow'...(Oprah style). the idi amin movie..looks interesting.. might go and see that.. Mona is looking into organising some free tickets..(but she'll get back to us).. as for that NigBay.. i'll pass.. looks seriously dodgy.. but with Mona putting on her blog.. it should get quite a few hits... (hopefully)..

Wow...didn't even realize that Nollywood website existed. Yesterday a US fan of Naija movies asked me where he could get authentic Naija movies and I didn't know so this is good to know. Do you know if there are any Naija movie rental places similar to Blockbuster, for example, wither in the UK or the US?

Mona....u always bring the heat
I had never heard of Nigbay....i need to check it out
I am proud of my Nigerian people...doing big things!

Mona said...

@ ms. may there are loads...will holler on ur blog xx

Mari said...

So mona will be going to the premier of the widow? I bet you will.

Last king of Scotland is out here but I dont think I'll be seeing it until it gets out on DVD. Number one reason is that I dont believe they can remake a classic any better. Im talking about Rise and Fall of Idi Amin (1981).

I heard about a few of these websites esp the nigbay but how much would u trust these sites esp wit ure credit cards.
