The premiere of the highly anticipated comedy movie, Boss of All Bosses, which held on Saturday June 9 at Filmhouse IMAX, Lekki, Lagos, was a star-studded event.
Celebrities and cast of the movie spotted on the red carpet included Juliet Ibrahim, Chinedu Ikedieze (Aki), Oke Bakassi, Funny Bone, Sound Sultan, Adunni Ade, Sani Danja, Senator Comedian, Emeka Kachikwu, Ime Bishop Umoh (Okon Lagos), Benjamin Touitou, Uche Iwuanyanwu, and Sambasa Nzeribe among others. Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu also added more glitz and glamour to the event with his presence.
Boss of all Bosses is the first movie from the stables of Mind Bursters Film Ventures and tells the story of Tony, a classy, ego-tripping, self-centred, arrogant MD at Hemcorps Oil & Gas. In the light of an absentee CEO whose identity remains hidden, he abuses his powers and becomes the perfect ladies man. His loyal PA at his beck and call acts as his informant, unveiling sizzling news unfolding in the company. He is living life to the fullest and nicknamed ‘the boss of all bosses’, until Samuel is brought on-board as a rival MD at the CEO’s request.
Special tasks are assigned to both as they compete for the exalted position deploying every trick in the scheming book to win or be fired. The employees are caught in the middle and camps are formed, alliances are made amidst the backdrop of comical scheming, romantic escapades and betrayal. Tony is fighting hard to win the affection of the slay queen he’s dying for, while focusing on the tasks but a bad move he makes threatens his ambition and sets him on course for what he never bargained for.
Guests who watched the movie were rocked with laughter, and the standing ovation and cheers that trailed the end credits spoke volumes that they had indeed enjoyed watching it.
Producer and lead actor of the movie, Emeka Kachikwu, had this to say about the screening: “I was thrilled when the guests laughed consistently at almost every scene. This proves to me that months of hard work have paid off and that movie lovers are in for a great time when they watch Boss of All Bosses in cinemas from June 15.”
