Sold-out Wedding Party 2 premiere promises a magical evening of Middle Eastern glamour in Lagos
Celebrities and the crème de la crème of society await the ‘lit’ and memorable launch of Nollywood’s most anticipated sequel
Lagos, 30th November 2017 – The ELFIKE Film Collective, a partnership between EbonyLife Films, FilmOne Distribution, Inkblot Productions and Koga Studios, is ecstatic about the sold-out Grand World Premiere of The Wedding Party 2: Destination Dubai. The event will take place on Sunday, December 10, at Eko Hotel & Suites, Victoria Island.
In a departure from previous premieres, the bar is being raised in terms of format, décor and service levels, to create an unforgettable occasion. Its theme, ‘Arabian Nights’, was inspired by the movie’s glamorous locations in Dubai, one of the world’s favourite holiday destinations. With that comes opulent venue décor, guests dressed in gorgeous ‘Arabian chic’ outfits and a variety of activities and entertainment that evoke the spirit of the region.
Final preparations are being made for a most spectacular event, with some of Nigeria’s most celebrated and influential individuals in business, entertainment and politics expected on the red carpet. A sumptuous 3-course meal will follow, accompanied by the finest wines, champagne and spirits. The legendary King Sunny Ade, Kiss Daniel, Seyi Shay, Sugarboy, Kaliné, Reekado Banks and Timi Dakolo will perform during dinner, before making way for the highlight of the evening, the screening of the hilarious romantic comedy, The Wedding Party 2: Destination Dubai.
Mo Abudu, CEO, EbonyLife Films, is looking forward to celebrating with guests. “We’re flabbergasted by the interest this premiere has received. The support from corporate partners and individuals has been incredible – we sold out one month before the event. I think that our guests will be genuinely surprised by the unique ambience we are creating to ensure that the evening is as memorable as the film will be entertaining.”
After the screening, a lit after-party will take place in an ultra-cool suite that boasts an open bar and comfortable lounge areas. Hosted by media partners MTV Base and featuring DJ Obi and DJ Cuppy, the party is likely to end only when guests decide to leave. And when it’s finally over, attendees will leave with envy-inducing gifts in an exclusive goodie bag, thanks to event sponsors Dubai Tourism and other partners.
The Wedding Party 2: Destination Dubai will have its cinema release on December 15 in Nigeria and across Africa.
