Nollywood Actress Rita Dominic Wins Kalasha Award
Barely a week after she was named most stylish actress at the FAB awards in Lagos, Nigeria, Africa’s screen Siren Rita Dominic was yet again announced a big winner at the fourth edition of the KALASHA film and Television awards on Saturday December 8, 2012.
The University of Port Harcourt graduate of Theatre Arts emerged Best Actress for her performance in the Kenyan film “Shattered”.
“I dedicate this award to God for his mercies, the media for their immense support, my team for their continuous sustenance, and making me believe that the sky is just a starting point. A special thanks to my Kenyan friends for voting for me and to the Kenyan Film Commission for this award ” she stated from her base in Lagos, Nigeria.
After a brief hiatus from the film industry, Miss Dominic returned to the silver screen this year, and has clearly had a good year. In April, she went home with an AMAA for Best Actress in a leading role for “Shattered”. In October she premiered THE MEETING, her first outing as co-producer. Since hitting cinemas late November, the film has been described as one of the best movies of 2012 by critics and pundits. “It keeps getting better and better, The Audrey Silva Company is dedicated to cementing its place as a first class production company, and we look forward to an even better 2013.” She concludes.
Rita Dominic headlines “Streets of Calabar”, another big budget film slated to premiere in Nigeria on December 21, 2012.
