ANGELIQUE KIDJO UNVEILED AS BRAND AMBASSADOR FOR NOLLYWOOD WEEK FESTIVAL 2016



From Thursday 2 to Sunday 5 June 2016, the Nollywood Week festival will take up residence at the Arlequin cinema in Saint Germain des Prés (75006). Supported by the internationally renowned Beninese musician, Angélique Kidjo, the 4th edition of Nollywood Week (2016) is set to be a celebration of diversity.


The festival will be a unique opportunity for those in Paris to enjoy the singer’s most recent cinematic work, with an advance screening of Kunle Afolayan’s film “The CEO”.
Angélique Kidjo, who a few months ago received a Grammy Award for her latest album, now publicly showcases a masterly interpretation of Dr Zimmerman, a starring role tailor-made for this global icon who never ceases to surprise us.

“The CEO” offers viewers an eclectic and Pan-African cast with actors from Nigeria, Morocco, South Africa, Kenya and the Ivory Coast allowing this film to paint an unusually authentic portrait of the continent today. Scheduled to open the festival, “The CEO” is an eagerly awaited production.  The entire team behind the film will be there to enjoy a privileged moment of interaction with the audience following the screening.
