Both spoke about the obstacles they faced filming and directing ‘Almost Christmas,’ including a movie trailer that caught on fire, and a few extras being hit by a car during the filming. Keri Hilson, played quite the naive role, and she absolutely NAILED it!

Raro Lae also delved into the business of music with Keri Hilson asking about her time in Nigeria and future plans with international acts. Hilson revealed that she’s actually working on a single with Tiwa (from Zambia), has met with P.Square, Davido (if he is willing), she also has spoken to Wizkid and Fally Ipupa.

It’s safe to say, there will also be an “Almost Christmas 2”! With Christmas coming up, and family together this week for Thanksgiving, this is certainly a movie the entire family can watch!
