It was a parade of stars as Nollywood actors and actresses thronged FilmHouse, located in the highbrow Lekki area of Lagos on Sunday night to celebrate one of their own, Oma Nnadi as she premiered her new movie, Being Annabel.
The movie stars top-notch actors including Desmond Elliot, Alexx Ekubo, Ebube Nwagbo, Oma Nnadi, Padita Agu, Ken Erics, Yvonne Jegede and Chelsea Eze among others.
Being Annabel tells the story of a broke lady who plays into the manipulation of her friend to impersonate her deceased twin sister so as to inherit her riches; she must be entangled in her sister’s love triangle along with the demons inside.
Speaking with Inside Nollywood, Nnadi, who is a new mother, revealed that she got pregnant just a month after shooting the movie, so she had to suspend the release.
“We shot the movie here in Lagos; Lekki to be precise, for eight days. I spent N12 million filming it after which I discovered I was pregnant. I had to put a hold on the post production until I had my baby. Now, I’m fully back to the industry,” she explained.
Being Annabel is directed by Okey Zubelu Okoh, and has hit the cinemas nationwide since March 8, 2019.
