Scene! Africa International Film Festival sparkled by Martini

Leila Djansi (L) and fans




















by Seyi Lawal

The just concluded Africa International Film Festival sparkled by Martini, was an extravagant event. It wrapped up with a special Awards Ceremony at the Oriental Hotel, Lekki on Saturday, 3 December.

A few moments at this festival cannot be forgotten in a hurry. Like the night Africa’s finest A-list actors, producers, and directors dazzled the red carpet at the official opening premiere and screening of Leila Djansi’s “Ties that Bind” – a film that unearthed Omotola Jalade Ekeinde.

Omotola put the E in sExy, as she glided on the red carpet like the African version of Snow White; the gorgeous Genevieve Nnaji had this Halle Berry suave going as she posed for pictures with dozens of frenzied fans;  Omoni Oboli was stunning in her amiable manner; Rita Dominic made eyes dance as she strutted on the red carpet with her entourage of velvety-skinned damsels; but then Lynn Whitfield shone like a galaxy of stars – you needn’t have seen her films to know she was someone very special .

We chose to relive the moments from the red carpet again and we hope you like the pictures.
