Omoni Oboli To Headline Next Edition Of Nolly Thursdays

BY ESE DIBEBI

The organizers of GDC‘s Nolly Thursdays have announced that the next edition of the event will hold on April 14, 2016 with Omoni Oboli as special guest.

Omobi Oboli is an actress, director and producer. She studied Foreign Languages at the University of Benin majoring in French. In 1996, while still at the university, she shot her first films. She then took a 10 year break, got married, and returned to the screen in 2009 with the movie Entanglement.
2010 saw Omoni feature in the award-winning film The Figurine, where she won the Best Picture award at the 2010 Africa Movie Academy Awards, she also won the 2010 award for Best Actress – Narrative Feature at the Los Angeles Movie Awards, the award for Best Actress at the Harlem International Film Festival and Big Screen Actress of the Year award, at the 2014 ELOY Awards, for her movie Being Mrs Elliot.

Omoni’s Wives on Strike features a blend of Nollywood talents, such as Uche Jombo, Chioma Akpotha, Ufuoma McDermott, Kehinde Bankole, Kalu Ikeagwu, Julius Agwu, Kenneth Okonkwo and many others. The movie is a hilarious comedy about a group of market women who decided to take matters into their own hands against their husbands in a bid to stir them into standing up for a young girl whom they wanted to protect from the wishes of her own father. The women, who hilariously interpret their roles, set a series of events in motion to give the movie many moments of laughter without missing a beat on the reason for everyone to know why they are on strike.

Nolly Thursdays will air on TrybeTv (GoTVngCh.97)  by 5:30pm and ONTV (UHF Ch.41, GoTV Ch.96) by 7:30pm.
