2face Idibia (The African Queen Crooner) and engaged wifey Annie Macaulay were both there
The setting was authentically African and in keeping with the theme of the movie, ushers were dressed in native Akwa Ibom dance costumes, adding colour & flair to an already lively event! Observers were in for a treat when the lovely Dakore-Egbuson made an entrance!
Rarely seen on the Red Carpet these days, her appearance was a pleasant surprise as was the arrival of newly wed Mercy Johnson and Nollywood ‘Bad Boy’ Jim Iyke. But what caused the biggest commotion of all was the arrival of soulful crooner, Tuface with the latest fiance in town, Annie Macaulay. The premiere almost went berserk!
