Top rated television network, EbonyLife TV hosted a Media and VIP cocktail event at Terra Kulture, Victoria Island, Lagos. The exclusive event premiered two new productions: New Horizon and Married to the game.
New Horizon is a powerfully emotional and throbbing flick that sets African women in the spotlight. It showcases the plight of women across Africa who have to bear the pains of domestic abuse, a crime far too familiar but rarely spoken about.
Starring Nollywood’s sizzling divas, Funke Akindele, Rita Dominic, Kate Henshaw-Nuttal and Uche Jombo. New Horizons is the story of triumph over abuse of these four women from different walks of life who meet together within a self help group for women. They help each other get over and through their various challenges and arrive at a new horizon in their individual lives.
CEO of EbonyLife TV, Mo Abudu said,
“I feel a huge sense of accomplishment at the premiere of New Horizons. As the world celebrates World Women’s Day in March we dedicate the short movie to all the women of Nigeria, Africa and the world at large who may be going through this terrible scourge. We are happy to put this dark subject on the table for discussion so that there can be hope for many. For us, it may be the premiere of the movie; but for all women of Africa, it may just be the beginning of a new era; an era of self-discovery, awareness, belief, hope and confidence.”
Unlike the former, Married To The Game starring Alex Ekubo and Leonor Okine as lead characters is a suspense-filled, cutting edge drama thriller tells a story of newlyweds Vincent and Gloria Coker who are headed toward a blissful future together. Gloria (Leonora Okine) marries Doctor Vincent (Alex Ekubo) in a bid to appease her father, who is unhappy because of her total lack of interest in becoming a doctor and inheriting his hospital. The tale however, takes a new twist when the couple runs over a stranger after their wedding reception.
Guests at the premiere event included- Tosyn Buknor, Ebuka Obi- Uchendu, Alex Ekubo, Oreka Godis, Noble Igwe, Yemi Alade, Ikechukwu, Adams Ibrahim, Zainab Balogun Olisa Adibua, Lanre Olushola, and many more.
