It was a media frenzy when Nollywood Actress, Producer and Director Omoni Oboli’s flight touched down in the city of Toronto judging by the way a section of the Canadian media received her and her team. The French graduate from the University of Benin is presently in Toronto, Canada for the annual Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). TIFF is one of the top two film festivals in the world and hosts over 42,000 people from all over the world. This year’s edition will start on Thursday September 8 and end Sunday September 18, 2016.
The delectable actress took to her social media platforms to announce her arrival in Toronto for the festival with the message ‘’#TheFirstLady at #Tiff16 on my way to my TV interview this morning. #Toronto I'm here’’.
Since setting foot in Canada, a popular newspaper has done an exclusive article on Omoni Oboli, a move that has humbled the soft-spoken actress. Aside the newspaper article, she has also granted an exclusive interview to a highly-revered Caribbean TV station in the city of Toronto which she shared exclusive pictures on her social media accounts.
Omoni Oboli’s yet-to-be-released work Okafor’s Law has been nominated at the yearly show-piece event. The Digital Filmmaking Graduate at the New York Film Academy has been in the news for some time now as she has directed three movies which made box office hits; Being Mrs. Elliot (2014), The First Lady (2015) and Wives on Strike (2016) with the movie becoming the third highest grossing Nigerian movie at the cinema with over 71m Naira.
Okafor’s Law states that if a man sleeps with a woman once, he can always bed her again irrespective of new developments like marriage, new boyfriend or break up. The movie will have a world premiere on Monday September 12 in Canada.
The movie tells the story of a slick serial seducer who bets with his friends that he can bed three old flames in six weeks. This romantic risqué comedy is rooted in the eternal lessons of lust and tells the story of ‘’Terminator’’ played by Blossom Chukwujekwu known by his best friends Fox (Ken Erics) and Baptist (Gabriel Afolayan) to be a successful serial seducer but they got a shocker themselves when he ends up in bed with an old flame right after her engagement ceremony to another man. ‘’It's Okafor's Law’’, Terminator explains.
The movie also features Richard Mofe-Damijo (RMD), Ufuoma McDermott, Tina Mba, Halima Abubakar, Yvonne Jegede, Mary Lazarus, Betty Irabor, Kemi Lala Akindoju, Uche Nnaji, Omoni Oboli and others.
