Omotola wants you to meet her today.

Planning on going to the movies today?

Sure you are. It's Saturday. It's also the countdown to the movie premiere Blood in the Lagoon at AMC Loews Fountains 18.

There're so many choices when it comes to things-to-do here in Houston. You've always made the choice to support something worthwhile. Well, this movie is one of them. Instead of traditional blockbuster cinema, why don't we support our own and actually learn something?

Children of the Diaspora, it behooves you to continue in awareness of what's going on with us home and abroad. Put our thinking caps on and come together and be the face of a new generation, one that encourages positive, better life for generations to come.

About Blood in the Lagoon.

The line the seperates the rich and the poor is clearly defined by a familiar Lagos river. Fate dealt to the rich and to the poor is of no culpability to those bestowed upon, through this one line, the two shall never meet...

Against all odds, a young boy, from the devastatingly poor fishing slums of Lagos is determined to pursue the dreams of his brother who is murdered. With no support, but with focus, commitment, hard work, reliance on God and good moral judgment, how far does he go?

The Film
Born into abject poverty and thrust deep into to the drudgery fate has dealt him, George Dibiya (Okey Uzoeshi)ekes out a living in the treacherous murky waters of the waste deluged Lagos Lagoon. Just like thousands more kids in the many slums of Nigeria, his life story is already written and sealed by fate, even before he came into the world. And this is not of his making. The chances of getting any education and, maybe clawing his way out of the situation is zero to unlikely, at best.
But after the murder of his brother, George sets out to, not allow his brothers dream die. Along the way, he gets entangled with the stunningly beautiful Scarlet (Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde) “Blood in the Lagoon” is an emotionally charged and thought provoking movie that will keep you glued to your seat till the very end.

Will you attend this ground breaking premiere, for Nollywood, for Nigeria, for Houston? You've heard it from the superstar herself, Houston is not rated highly within the diaspora.  In my opinion, there really isn't anything to prove, one just has to come to "our hood" to encounter an amazing discovery.

See you later today.  Keep it here.
