Turning Point Movie Premiere Marks the Turning Point of Nollywood and it's New Leading Man, Igoni Archibong



Turning Point Premieres Triumphant at London's O2 Arena - 
Starring Igoni Archibong and Jackie Appiah
Esther Ademosu for E4 PR

The stars were out in all their splendour on Wednesday evening, December 12th 2012, at the Indigo O2, London, to mark the Nollywood movie Premiere of Turning Point.

UK and African broadcast media were out in strong number, capturing what is to become the legacy of the Turning Point premiere.

No more apt a title could have been given to the movie, as celebrities and a near capacity audience watch with great determination the turning point so long desired of the Nollywood film industry.  

The top notch cast delivered an unforgettable and polished performance, whilst the technical direction and vision of producers Niyi Towolawi's and E4 PR’s very own Egor Efiok guaranteed that the overall standard of the production oozed genius and quality!

If you missed it, what on earth were you thinking (you better have a pretty strong excuse... like your chihuahua broke its legs – and yes I mean ALL four of them!)?!!!

Turning Point movie preview:


At one of the biggest Nollywood movie premieres seen in the UK, Jackie Appiah dazzled on screen and in person, whilst her on screen husband, Ade (actor, Igoni Archibong had many’a ladies within the crowd pretty weak at the knees with some of the more torso-laden scenes. Making his Nollywood debut in Turning Point, we forecast big things ahead for this amazing talent – just remember where you heard it first y’all ;D. Jackie Appiah as ever, did an amazing job in bringing her character, Grace, to life  and further kudos to Ghanaian actress Appiah for  seriously ‘owning’ the Nigerian accent she sported all so persuasively throughout the movie.

It was also great to see the American members of the cast shoulder to shoulder with actors from across the Atlantic as credible peers. Todd Bridges, Ernie Hudson et. al. all displayed such charisma and conviction in Turning Point which peppered the movie premiere with a certain edge.

During the Q&A with the cast and director a question was thrown out by one audience member:
“What was the Turning Point...?”
As well as Niyi’s more pragmatic response, I believe the Turning Point in the wider context refers to a complete recalibration of what is deemed quality within Nollywood productions. Based on the quality of the production it was easy to forget that this was not an American effort but very much homemade.


I can’t tell you how refreshing, enjoyable and downright impressive it is to watch a Nollywod production, from start to finish, without the irritating unwelcome cameo appearance of a fuzzy boom-mic, a crew member’s mobile phone ringing on set, or the undesirable shadow of  probably the same crew member (doubly annoying!! L), who ought to have had an invisible presence... The list goes on...!

Yet all of these distractions to the storytelling are nowhere to be found here. If for that reason only, I’d say it was well worth the watch. But it isn’t the only reason! Watch it at a cinema near you because you’ll be thoroughly entertained – by good storytelling, incomparable acting, attention to detail and by a solid, sobering after thought.  

Please go out and support the movie, guys n dolls! See it on the big screen to get the bigger picture ;)

Dbanj, 2face and Sir Shina Peters Make TOP10MICS, 2012, An Iconic Bash (photos)!!!





Music Titans tear it up on stage at TOP10MICS, 2012 - photos!!                                                                                        Edited by Esther Ademosu for E4 PR
The 2012 edition of the mother of all music concerts, TOP10MICS may have come and gone but the positive aspects of the memorable concert cannot be ignored. The Koga Entertainment concert brought under one roof, the heavyweights in the industry such as 2face, Dbanj, Femi Kuti, Sir Shina Peters, DJs Jimmy Jatt and Neptune, BasketMouth and OAP, Yaw.
The Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos played host to the concert with several people attending the event with celebrities such as Rukky Sanda, Uti Nwachukwu, Sunny Neji, Alariwo of Africa, Alex Ekubo, Omawumi, Waje, Cecil Hammond, Moses Inyang and a host of others.
The performances of Hypertek Honcho, 2face Idibia and Kokomaster, Dbanj could not be faulted as they gave a performance of their lives, the duo performed separately to a live band which is quite new in Nigeria’s entertainment scene. 2baba as he is fondly called performed more than five tracks back to back as he serenaded the crowd on the night.
Dbanj took everybody by surprise including the organisers as he came to the show with his friends and brother; Ikechukwu, Naeto C and K Switch performed alongside Dbanj with Special ED as his hype man. Afrobeat icon, Femi Kuti and Afro Juju Maestro, Shina Peters didn’t disappoint the audience too with their live beats which got most of the audience on their feet throughout the period which they performed.
This year’s concert was an improvement on the maiden edition which took place at the famous Tafawa Balewa Square. The performances of this year’s event were more rewarding as the four artistes that came on stage performed close to an hour each.
The introduction of two top-of-the-class DJs, Jimmy Jatt and Neptune provided some competition, as one tried to outdo the other, which ultimately went down well with the audience as they had the opportunity to see these two top disc jockeys do their thing on stage. 
Anu Awoseyi of Koga Entertainment spoke on the success of the concert,
 “We want to thank the esteemed organisations that supported Koga Entertainment this year, it was great working with them, they indeed advanced our cause this year. TOP10MICS was a success in all ramifications. To the producer of the event, Omoh Talabi, we can’t thank you enough. We look forward to doing more in 2013’’.
