Natures Gentle Touch Sponsored film 'OMOYE' Premieres in Lagos

...Hit Cinema on Friday, October 27

Penultimate Sunday was a day of heavy downpour, but that did not deter the high profile guests drawn across different strata of the society, to glamourise the premiere of a new Nollywood film ‘Omoye’ which held at Genesis Deluxe Cinema, The Palms Mall, Lekki, Lagos.

'Omoye', a film on domestic violence sponsored Natures Gentle Touch features popular Nigerian actors including Adeniyi Johnson, Nkiruka ‘Kiki’ Omeilli, Stan Nze, Tina Mba, Gloria Young, Rotimi Salami, Greg Ojefua, Olarotimi Fakunle, Omobola Akinde, and Mariana Dike.

Shot in Ajegunle, Lagos-Nigeria from the stable of Camp Fire Films, Omoye tells the riveting tale of a hardworking and relentless young lady who unfortunately gets into a toxic relationship with a man that never takes responsibility for anything. With abuse and violence increasing, she becomes emotionally and mentally drained but still won’t give up on her marriage.

L-R: General Manager, Natures Gentle Touch, Chijioke Anaele; Brand Manager, Natures Gentle Touch, Anita Anosike; Nollywood actor, Kiki Omeili and Finance Manager, Natures Gentle Touch, Kalu Uma, at the premiere of “Omoye”, a movie on domestic violence sponsored by Natures Gentle Touch, held at Genesis Cinema, Lekki, Lagos during the weekend.
There is a deep cultural belief in Nigeria that it is socially acceptable to hit a woman to discipline a spouse. Domestic violence is widespread and shows no signs of lessening in Nigeria.

Taken the campaign against domestic and gender-based violence to the grassroots, the movie brought to the fore the alarming rate of the subject in the country and the need for more support from the government, NGOs, law enforcement agencies, family and friends.

The film was written and directed by Uche Chukwu, and produced by award winning Rotimi Salami.

The movie will hit cinemas across Nigeria from October 27, 2017.
