Princewill Breaks More Records With 76, The Movie

In another major milestone, Prince Tonye Princewill's Nollywood production, "76" billed for debuted on November 25 was a sellout at the European premiere at the BFI London Film Festival held over the weekend.

The movie just like the experience in Canada, saw tickets sold out days before the screening and is also the first Nollywood movie to have featured in the Toronto and London film festivals back to back in the same year.
Prince Tonye was during the same period, a guest on BBC's Focus Africa.

The stars came out in glittering form in the London's West End to celebrate the launch of a film that has been described by the UK press as "visually textured, educational, and thoroughly entertaining; a movie not to be missed".

The film stars many renowned and notable Nollywood megastars Rita Dominic, Ramsey Nouah, Chidi Mokeme, Ibinabo Fiberesinma, Memry Savanhu, Daniel K Daniel (two time African best actor 2016) and the awesome Ada Ofoegbu in her groundbreaking role as "Aunty Mary".

Additionally attending were Executive Producers Adonijah Owiriwa (also in the movie) and popular politician himself, Prince Tonye Princewill with his family in tow and a host of other glitterati from the elite London red carpet circuit.

The evening was well attended and witnessed a crowd reaction of delight, full appreciation and immense satisfaction. Without a doubt, the highlight of the evening was the last minute arrival from Heathrow Airport of the movie's respected Director - Izu Ojukwu, who only just got his visa and made it in the nick of time to attend the post screening Q and A session, to rapturous applause.
