Hundreds of movie lovers defied thunderstorm warnings to attend Friday’s premiere of actress Yvonne Nelson’s new movie, ‘If Tomorrow Never Comes’.
The premiere came two days after floods in Accra last Wednesday killed hundreds. Weather forecasters announced more rains were to be expected and warned citizens to stay home. But that did not deter moviegoers from venturing out to see the movie.
The premiere was held at Silverbird Cinemas at the Accra Mall and the West Hills Mall, where the cast and crew made appearances on the red carpet.
Considering the warnings of bad weather, organisers of the premiere say they were surprised by the number of patrons who turned up for the event.
“We did it guys! In unity there is strength! Thank you to all who made it to the epic of a movie premiere, amidst the week’s bad news. The black outfit is not just for the little boy Kweku but those who perished in Accra flood. We thank God for all that He gives us. Amen,” Yvonne Nelson said on Saturday.
The premiere was attended by some of the cast of the movie including Yvonne Nelson, Becca, Kweku Elliot, Khareema Aguiar, Adeyemi Okawlanwon, Bismark the Joke, and Kafui Danku.
‘If Tomorrow Never Comes’ tells an epic story of a young girl, Ewurabana, who was sold into slavery by her wicked uncle after her mother died leaving her and her kid brother in the village.
She went through all kinds of grievous treatments in the hands of her handlers.
There was even an attempt on her life but she escaped to the city to hawk in the streets; her only means of survival.
A lot happened in the streets till a miracle happened to her and she became a powerful figure in society. She now narrates her sad story to world.
The movie is currently showing at the Silverbird Cinemas.
