It’s no longer news that the widely publicised Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) has come and gone with Nollywood in the lead, in terms of presence and recognition but what is indeed news was that a Nigerian movie sold out three halls in the city of Toronto.
Omoni Oboli’s new movie ‘Okafor’s Law’ sold out three halls at the theater where the movie was shown in the city of Toronto so much so that people who came to the theatre few minutes after the viewing time were turned back because there were no longer seats.
The Nollywood actress who could not conceal her joy when the news of the sold out halls got to her quickly shared the news on her social media accounts. When asked how she felt when the news of the sold out status of her movie got to her, she said ‘’ ’I did not see this happening in Toronto, maybe in Nigeria but not here.
I know Okafor’s Law is a good movie, but did I envisage there would be packed halls here in Canada? The answer is NO! When I was told the halls have been sold out, I was really moved to tears. I just couldn’t believe it!”
Okafor’s Law featured Richard Mofe-Damijo (RMD), Ufuoma Mc Dermott, Tina Mba, Blossom Chukwujekwu, Kemi Lala Akindoju, Yvonne Jegede, Ken Erics, Gabriel Afolayan, Halima Abubakar, Toyin Aimakhu, Mary Lazarus, Betty Irabor and others.
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.
