On the 5th of July, the Shameful Deceit movie premiere took place at the North Greenwich Odeon Cinema in London. The stars of the movie came out in full force with the producer Theodora Ibekwe looking immaculate.
The excited crowd looked on to see the stars arrive on the red carpet in their limo and to catch a glimpse of them before entering the movie theatre.
The exclusive premiere proved to be such a hit that they needed three theatres to seat everyone who attended the screening, a rarity when it comes to nollywood movies. It seems that a new standard is being raised when it comes to the production of African movies that brings out huge crowds in support of films that are made of a higher quality. Theodora Ibekwe has a hit on her hands.
Shameful Deceit is a socially conscious tale that explores the pressure of dealing with society’s judgmental views on controversial, yet extremely personal circumstances within a marriage. Directed by Ruke Amata (Amata Dynasty, The Past Came Calling), Shameful Deceit has an all-star cast, including Nollywood veteran Lanre Balogun (What women want), Moji Bamtefa (Meet the Adebanjos), Fatima Jabbe (Mirror Boy) alongside the producer herself, Theodora Ibekwe.
Shameful Deceit tells the story of Elizabeth (Theodora Ibekwe) who has to deal with her philandering husband, Simon (Lanre Balogun). Elizabeth, a strong marriage advocate is torn between her belief and the devastating pain of betrayal.
