Multi-award-winning filmmaker, Dickson Iroegbu has majestically walked his way back into the Nigerian film industry, Nollywood with another blockbuster movie, ‘The Good Husband’.

Mr. Iroegbu, one of the best movie directors Nollywood has ever boast of, made film lovers believe he took a little break from film making, to pursue other dreams. Little did people realize that he was also busy in the background working on huge film projects.

However, he has eventually hit the limelight again with this box office breaking flick, ‘The Good Husband’. From the stable of Teamwork Studios Limited, ‘The Good Husband’ was produced and directed by Dickson Iroegbu.

Starring Sam Dede, Monalisa Chinda, Francis Duru, Thelma Okoduwa-Ojiji, Paul Sambo, Bassey Ekpo Bassey, and introducing Eeefy Ike and Shield Nwazuruahu. ‘The Good Husband’ is a timely film that x-rays the relationship between a man and a woman in a marital union. A situation where marriage mates feel they have figured out what makes a happy home, only to realize it takes a lifetime to unravel what truly works in marriage.

Mr. Iroegbu disclosed that ‘The Good Husband’ will make it’s way to the cinemas in Apri, and further said the movie will be exhibited in Churches and Mosques across the globe through all available distribution channels, so we are open for business.

Mr. Iroegbu who has produced and directed over 20 blockbuster movies such as, Women’s Cot, Critical Condition, Unfaithful, Romantic Attraction and The Mayors, which earned him Best Picture, Best Screenplay, and Best Director at African Movie Academy Awards, AMAA, has released the trailer of ‘The Good Husband’.

Ekiti State, which boasts of the top 10 tourist centers in Nigeria, would be hosting the 12th edition of the BON Awards come December 5, 2020.

This was confirmed when the award crew paid a visit to the executive governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi, at the government office in Ado Ekiti today and the official hosting right plaque was presented to him.

Recall that the last 2019 edition was successfully hosted by the Kano State government in December.

The traveling award this year, according to the founder, BON Awards, Seun Oloketuyi, is in three phases; Children Day Book Reading featuring Please Don’t Touch Me by Pastor Odukoya to be headlined by Her Excellency, Erelu Fayemi, visitations to top tourist locations in the Sunshine State by past winners of the awards and the main event proper.

While accepting the hosting right, the executive governor appreciated the delegation for its patience and assured of Ekiti State people’s readiness to welcome the 2020 edition of the award.

“Even though I’m not a movie enthusiast, I’m married to one who bombards me daily with her analysis. So I can’t miss it.

“Ekiti State is a state of creative art, and we have big names in the industry like Peter Fatomilola, Foluke Daramola, Odulade and many others.”

The governor also stated, “Ekiti is a lot more than what people think we’re and we are very delighted to do this and very much love to be associated with the success of the BON Awards.”

BIG STORY

Ace Musician Eedris Abdukareem Arrested For Beating Landlord In Lagos

Popular hip-hop musician, Eedris Abdulkareem, has been arrested by the police for allegedly beating his landlord, Oladipo Abimbola.

Abdulkareem was said to have been reported at Area F Police Command in Lagos State.

He was subsequently arrested.

According to available information, Abimbola, who owns the property at Valley View Estate in the Ikeja area, accused the hip-hop star of fraud, harassment, and intimidation.

The confrontation that led to the arrest was said to have occurred on January 3, 2020, after the landlord instructed officials of Ikeja Electricity Distribution Company to disconnect Abdulkareem from power source due to overdue and unpaid accumulated electricity bills amounting to N535,000

The artist was said to have stormed Abimbola’s compound over the issue.

The landlord said he was unaware that Abdulkareem was to be his tenant when he rented out the flat.

According to him, Abdulkareem’s wife rented his apartment on behalf of her husband.

He also stated that Abdulkareem is an antisocial and dangerous person who constantly owes him rent and would stop at nothing to carry out his threat of assault.

Although Abdulkareem was said to have admitted having warned his landlord, his counter-accusation was that Abimbola sexually harassed his wife in his absence and refused to respect their privacy by wantonly encroaching on their side of the compound without permission.

He claimed that his landlord has once been arrested for a previous case of sexual harassment against another (female) tenant.

The matter is still with the police.
