AML Nollywood News: Stella Damasus Stars in New Movie ‘TWISTED,’ Another Cover For OC Ukeje, Patience Ozokwor Launches Multi-Million Naira Plaza, Another Actress Turns Musician, Chika Ike’s New Endorsement Deal

Stella Damasus Back On our TV Screens
It’s been a while since most Nollywood fans have had Stella Damasus grace their TV screens. Well, she is back! She stars in a new international Nollywood flick titled ‘TWISTED’. The movie is directed by New York based Director/Producer Daniel Ademinokan and features Stella Damasus as the lead actress. Although a release date for the movie hasn’t been announced, the film is a crime drama that was shot in the US. Have a taste of the Nollywood Diva in the trailer below:

OC Ukeje Is Nollywood’s Leading Man On The Cover Of Bubbles Magazine
O.C Ukeje Bubbles MagazineIt seems like OC Ukeje has been on some Lupita N’yongo streak these past few months as he is being ‘honoured’ everywhere! In the last AML Nollywood update, we shared his cover on the latest issue of Complete Fashion Magazine and here he is again on the latest issue of Bubbles Magazine. Bubbles Magazine usually focuses more on musicians and hardly has a Nollywood actor on its cover, so I guess they finally found an ‘actor’ worthy to grace the cover. I think the cover says a lot more about OC though, as he is one of those few actors that has a strong brand that extends beyond just the movie industry. By the way, how could the magazine release copies of their latest issue with such editorial error of misspelling American Rapper Kendrick Lamar’s Name as ‘Kedrick’ on the cover of their magazine? Oops! (Notice it on the top left of the cover?)

Patience Ozokwor’s New Business Venture
Patience Azukwor Plaza

Nollywood Actress, Patience Ozokwor popularly known as Mama G recently built a Multi-million Naira Plaza in her state, Enugu. The plaza was officially opened to the public on 29th of March, 2014. The Launch had the Commissioner of Tourism for Enugu state present and he officially opened the plaza.

I am impressed when Nollywood actors/actresses go into business ventures and do not wait around for an endorsement deal from a telecomms company. It shows they are starting to understand that as an actor, you are a brand and must continually come up with business ventures/deals to keep your brand relevant.

Another Nollywood Actress Releases A Music Video
Jennifer Eliogu FantasyActress Jennifer Eliogu has released a music video for her latest single titled ‘Fantasy’. The video was directed by William Ranieri and I must admit, it is actually a good watch. Unlike most of her colleagues who have ventured into music, Jennifer actually has a musical talent that can be perfected with proper grooming. She has already performed live at a couple of events including ‘Nigeria’s Got Talent’ where she impressed the audience.

Watch the video and share your thoughts.
