After receiving a massive support at its premiere during the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), the most anticipated Nollywood movie, “93 Days” was again sold out at yet another massive premiere in Nigeria which took place at House on the Rock Church in partnership with Natives FilmWorks, Michelangelo Productions and the Bolanle Austen-Peters Production.
The event which was graced by lots of celebrities as well as dignitaries across the country, kicked off with a press conference where the Senior Pastor and founder of House On The Rock church, Pastor Paul Adefarasin talked about the movie saying:
“I ask why not? The God whose we are and whom we serve has taught us that faith in Him was never meant to be lived on the periphery of the world but rather instead to stand tall in the center, as light to the world. The underlying message of 93 days is a powerful one which teaches, in experiential terms, many values and principles of the Holy Writ and we are humbled to be a part of a story of true heroism, bravery, sacrifice and the quest to be greater together! For Nigeria countless lessons for nation building and transformation can be gleaned and internalized from this harrowing yet uniting occurrence. As a nation we exemplified Helen Keller’s maxim that “alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.”
‘I dare say that by collaborating with Nollywood, we (the church and the press) have the opportunity of using our places of impact; be they the pen or the pulpit, to share exemplary virtues that propagate the values of nation building and transformation while at the same time supporting the art and distribution of movies.”
Personalities t the event include Joke Silva, Olu Jacobs, Bimbo Akintola, Bolanle Austen-Peters, Chioma Chukwuka, Timi Dakolo, Michelle Dede, Ozzy Agu, Chibuike Amaechi, Seun Ajayi and Segun Arinze among others.
