It was a media frenzy when Nollywood Actress, Producer and Director Omoni
Oboli’s flight touched down in the city of Toronto judging by the way a
section of the Canadian media received her and her team.
The French graduate from the University of Benin is presently in Toronto,
Canada for the annual Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). TIFF is
one of the top two film festivals in the world and hosts over 42,000
people from all over the world.
This year’s edition will start on Thursday September 8 and end Sunday September 18, 2016.
The delectable actress took to her social media platforms to announce her
arrival in Toronto for the festival with the message ‘’#TheFirstLady at
#Tiff16 on my way to my TV interview this morning. #Toronto I'm here’’.
Since setting foot in Canada, a popular newspaper has done an exclusive
article on Omoni Oboli, a move that has humbled the soft-spoken actress.
Aside the newspaper article, she has also granted an exclusive interview
to a highly-revered Caribbean TV station in the city of Toronto and she
shared exclusive pictures on her social media accounts.
Omoni Oboli’s yet-to-be-released work Okafor’s Law has been nominated at
the yearly show-piece event. The Digital Filmmaking Graduate at the New
York Film Academy has been in the news for some time now as she has

bed her again irrespective of new developments like marriage, new
boyfriend or break up. The movie will have a world premiere on Monday
September 12 in Canada.

friends that he can bed three old flames in six weeks. This romantic
risqué comedy is rooted in the eternal lessons of lust and tells the story
of ‘’Terminator’’ played by Blossom Chukwujekwu known by his best friends
Fox (Ken Erics) and Baptist (Gabriel Afolayan) to be a successful serial
seducer but they got a shocker themselves when he ends up in bed with an
old flame right after her engagement ceremony to another man. ‘’It's
Okafor's Law’’, Terminator explains.

Mba, Halima Abubakar, Yvonne Jegede, Mary Lazarus, Betty Irabor, Kemi Lala
Akindoju, Uche Nnaji, Omoni Oboli and others.
