Martini Sparkles the Africa International Film Festival
|Lynn and Geneveive Nnaji|
sophisticated lifestyle that Martini exemplifies or maybe they just love the fact that Martini threw its weight behind the African film industry – behind a worthy cause whatever it is, these celebrities were subconsciously drawn to the Martini
logo on the media wall as they dazzled and posed for pictures on the red carpet. The gorgeous Genevieve Nnaji had this Halle Berry suave going as she posed for pictures with dozens of frenzied fans; Omotola put the E in sexy, as she glided on the red carpet like the African version of Snow White; Omoni Oboli was stunning in her amiable manner; Rita Dominic madeeyes dance as she strutted on the red carpet with her entourage of velvety-skinned damsels; but then Lynn Whitfield shone like a galaxy of stars – you need not have seen her films to know she was someone very special – she displayed well-cultivated red carpet etiquettes – smiling, hugging, and posing with her colleagues and fans.
On Friday was the Martini AFRIFF Festival Party and It was indeed a Blush Night, as Martini in its trademark glam hosted the hardworking artists and over 200 guests to a glitz-filled festival party at the exotic Villa Angelia Hotel, where everything that glittered were actually worth more than gold – from the sparkling Martini Rose to the glamorous celebrities in beautiful dresses – from the blinged up red carpet decor to the amazing poolside fountain. High profile media stakeholders like Ben Bruce (Silverbird Group) and Biola Alabi (MNET Africa) were at the party to mingle with the film makers who came from all
over the world to celebrate African films. Alex Kothoor, the managing director of GDN Nigeria Limited – official reps of Martini was at the party to make sure the glasses in the building were sparkling with Martini Rose. Kate Henshaw, Rita Dominic, Omoni Oboli, and Lynn Whitfield were the media favorites as there was never a time when they weren’t been besieged by the press to grant them interviews, which they did with overwhelming graciousness.
The Africa International Film Festival sparkled by Martini, continued as the Awards Ceremony started at 6pm on Saturday, 3rd December at the Oriental Hotel, Lekki.
