Notable stars were also in attendance; Wale Ojo from Phone Swap, writer/director Tolulope Yesufo and the fastest African alive Olusoji Fasuba.
After the screening, Onyi had a few words to say:
“Flower Girl was a joy to watch; Michelle Bello had clearly put a lot of effort in making this movie successful. The movie was relatable, a Nollywood chick flick that is appealing to men. It was funny, romantic and charming but most importantly the quality of the movie was great; I can’t fault it, their attention to detail has to be recognised. There was not a dull moment in the screening, especially with the soundtrack and the reaction of the audience was brilliant, we all laughed and danced together and I even shed a tear at the end of the movie”.
