The Successor is a new film from the stable of Film Africa Ltd - a young London-based entertainment outfit. Written by Monjaro and Obi Emelonye, The Successor has received limited showing in London cinemas in what the producers call Celebrity Premiere Roadshow - a fancy way of saying 'Meet the cast and crew, and see the movie'. Cinema patrons at the Odeon Swiss Cottage, Odeon/UCI Lee Valley, Odeon Streatham and Odeon/UCI Surrey Quays have had a chance to see the film and have interacted with some of the actors including Stephanie Okereke, Monjaro, Dakore Egbuson and Robert Peters.

Further dates in London will be announced on this blogazette in due course, especially the dates for the Celebrity Premiere Roadshows in the USA and Nigeria slated for Novemeber through December 2006. The DVDs are expected to go on general release from February 2007.

Alien in my flat

















What if I said, forget about reptiles, forget about oversized eyes, aliens wear black t-shirts and forget to put on their trousers. What would you say?
I surprised this being this morning in my flat and caught him on film. Appreciate.
