To have brought a Royal father, the Alaafin of Oyo Kingdom, whose office commands class and respect, is really commendable for a movie premiere.
The premiere of actress Lizzy Anjorin’s work, “Owo Naira Bet”, last Friday, July 7, in Lagos, was spectacular!
The package of the premiere was what made the difference. The royal presence popped up the show.
There were a lot of society men and women and nobody noticed there were not many Nollywood big names present. Though Funke Adesiyan, Seyi Edun and some other actresses were present, the hall was jam-packed with celebrities and when Lizzy Anjorin came out to say Thank you, tears couldn’t let her.
But she wrote it on her Instagram page today:
“Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!
Saying Thank You! can’t fully state my height of gratitude for how you have tremendously stood by me, supported the dream, demonstrated true love, concern and enjoined me in gathering such monumental momentum! Many lessons learnt already, and for many reasons i can proudly say “I Am Blessed Beyond Limits” with the best “Real People’ as evidently displayed in the successful turn out of my “OwoNairaBet” Premiere! Let me once again emphasise further how I feel so humbled, honoured and more worthy seeing wonderful dignitaries from all sides of life!
