Flower Girl: Introducing Nigeria’s Newest Romantic Comedy

From the mind of Producer/Director Michelle Bello whose last film Small Boy won two African Movie Academy Awards, comes a tale of love lost and won in the city of Lagos.

Flower Girl is a romantic comedy that involves the life of Kemi, a shy florist,
who is desperate to tie the knot with her long-time boyfriend Umar. Contrary to her expectations, Umar suddenly breaks up with her, leaving her devastated.  In a desperate bid to get him back, Kemi teams up with a most unlikely ally, Tunde Kulani, a famous playboy Nollywood star.
The movie addresses the issue of young women who are in a hurry to get married thinking only about their prefect wedding day and not the long-term commitment required by both individuals to make it last.

The next generation of amazing Nigerian stars meticulously assembled by Michelle includes Damilola Adegbite, (formerly in Tinsel), Chris Attoh (Tinsel), Eku Edewor (Studio 53), Bikiya Graham Douglas and Chuks Chukwujekwu, starring for the first time as a male lead.  Also starring in the film are famous actors Patrick Doyle, Teni Aofiyebi and Tosan Edremoda-Ugbeye. This dynamic ensemble brings a whole new take on love in Nigeria and audiences are sure to have a highly entertaining experience watching Flower Girl when it is released in 2013.

With an all-star crew including Co-Producer Michelle Dede (Big Brother Nigeria),
Art Director Bola Bello (AMAA award winner for Art Direction: Small Boy), award-winning Screenwriter Jigi Bello (Shooter, The Waiting Room) and Director of Photography James Costello (Inale, Last Flight to Abuja and Black November), this production is highly anticipated by filmmakers all across Africa.

Shot entirely on location, Flower Girl is Michelle’s love letter to Lagos and will feature locations familiar to many as well as some exciting parts of the city never seen before in a film.  From churches to business hubs and from electrifying night life to beautiful lagoon views, Flower Girl captures modern-day Lagos in stunning high resolution that will be enjoyed by audiences everywhere.

Sounds like it will bore us to tears. The usual over acting, cliche ending and usual nollywood stuff with mnet production (˘̯˘ )

sounds nice and i hope it will. though i wouldn't want to see a love story built around Damilola Adegbite (Telema,formerly in Tinsel) and Chris Attoh (Kwame, Tinsel).

now that sounds like a nollywood movie i want to see. predictable but set around something we are familiar with

Why do we need something familiar ? I'd rather have majid and dami, chris and dami romance on tinsel didn't do anything for me and am sure this movie won't as well. The romance seems just too forced. Hey its just me.

My thoughts exactly!

"The movie addresses the issue of young women who are in a hurry to get married thinking only about their prefect wedding day and not the long-term commitment required by both individuals to make it last."

Linda i could easily tell that this post is advertorial.

Why dont you change the fonts to your usual fonts whenever you do an advertorial post?

Chick flick! My kinda film! Don't worry people. I'm sure Kwame and Telema will not continue their love saga in this film!

Tinsel dialogues r usually dramatic and surreal. the chemistry btw the actors r strained. Tinsel iyav jus spoil any interest i myt develop, esp since Emem Isong isn't part of the cast !!
