During the first private screening, in Abuja, of a new Nollywood movie, ‘Heaven On My Mind’, co-produced by famous actresses, Uche Jombo and Ini Edo, some Nigerian senators who graced the star-studded event have praised the artistes for a job well done.
Joining the cast and crew of the movie at the screening, ahead of its December 7, 2018 release date were Senator Ikechukwu Obiora who was host; Senator Joy Emodi (CON), Senator Dino Melaye, Chief Raymond Dopesi, Chief Okafor, Senator Igochuba.
Starring Ini Edo, Uche Jombo, Adenu Adebo, Mercy Aigbe, Ray Emodi, Femi Adebayo, Chika Chukwu and host of other Nollywood actors and actresses, the movie addresses contemporary issue about men who date several women, highlighting the consequences therein.
According to Senator Joy Emodi, Uche and Ini are very minded individuals whose talents she believes in.
She said: “My son, Ray Emodi is also one of the actors and they all performed excellently well in the movie. It was indeed an interesting view and I can’t wait to watch more of it as they have promised to open it in cinemas nationwide on December 7.”
Senator Dino Melaye also appreciated the work, which he described as great display of intellectual mobility.
“It is very African and Nigerian,” he said. “It is a wonderful movie and it can also pass for a good comedy movie. I love it. I appreciate the quality of the movie, the actors and actresses were at their best.”
