Oby Edozieh’s Movie Premiere in Abuja

Actress Oby Edozieh is back in Nollywood and this time she is calling all the shots as the producer. I always used to marvel at the scantiness of her eyebrows but truth be told I have missed her a little bit since she has been gone. My most memorable performance of hers was with Rita Dominic and Pat Attah in IMMATERIAL. I picked up a copy in Tobago (See even when I’m away I need my fix) and I absolutely loved her in that movie. The way she was spitting lyrics in pidgen and being so razz with it, she was just on point! If you haven’t seen that movie, I reccommend that you do! So I received this Press Release and photos in my inbox,and what amazed me was the fact that they spelt her name as “Oby Edizien.” What can I say but WOW! How are you meant to be promoting someone and you can’t even get their name right? BIG BIG insult. I don’t even know the chick but I know enough to get her name right! And I’m not the one getting paid to promote her!!!
