New Orleans is buzzing, and the talk of the town is still the second edition of ‘Hollywood Meets Nollywood’ – A Night With The Royals. The prestigious event took place at the historic New Orleans Jazz Market on Saturday, April 27th and housed over 400+ attendees.
The glamorous night began with a red carpet and cocktail reception, followed by a moderated film panel featuring distinguished New Orleans and Nollywood film professionals.
Guests were later thrilled by a special African dance performance by the AfroXotica dance troupe led by Andrea Peoples and a live drum performance by the legendary Afro-Cuban musician, Bill Summers.
Lastly, guests enjoyed the exclusive world premiere of the Hollywood/Nollywood film ‘Different Worlds’, executively produced by Augustine Ogbuefi in New Orleans, LA and Nigeria.
The event featured a notable guest appearance by Queen Diambi Kabatusuila of the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Guests equally enjoyed an interactive photo booth experience courtesy of PhoDat Booths and were able to associate with local vendors: Launch Model & Talent Film Academy, Conrad Rose and distinguished musician Oluwagbenga Akingbola.
