The premiere of Crazy Rich Asians, a highly and globally anticipated movie, occurred recently at Imax Filmhouse, Lekki, with an Oriental themed private showing.
The event supported by Airtel and Courvoiser Cognac, was filled with celebrities, influencers and newsmakers who all came in to be part of an entertaining experience.
Crazy Rich Asians” follows native New Yorker Rachel Chu (Wu) as she accompanies her longtime boyfriend, Nick Young (Golding), to his best friend’s wedding in Singapore. Excited about visiting Asia for the first time but nervous about meeting Nick’s family, Rachel is unprepared to learn that Nick has neglected to mention a few key details about his life.
It turns out that he is not only the scion of one of the country’s wealthiest families but also one of its most sought-after bachelors. Being on Nick’s arm puts a target on Rachel’s back, with jealous socialites and, worse, Nick’s own disapproving mother (Yeoh) taking aim. And it soon becomes clear that while money can’t buy love, it can definitely complicate things.
Already number 1 in the US, Crazy Rich Asians is commanding rave reviews from Nigerian film critics, movie buffs and celebrities who attended the screening. The movie is officially out in cinemas.
