VIDEO: Game of Thrones' Season 7 Finale Preview

Main thing to expect...

 Lannister siblings Cersei, Jaime and Tyrion come face-to-face once more.

Games of Thrones' Final Season to be shot in October

Games of Thrones fans should prepare to say a sad bye bye to the show, as it will begin shooting its final season in October, which  will consist of 8 episodes.
In a recent interview Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister, revealed the production date but as to what fans should expect in the final season, he has no idea yet.
‘I knew what was going to happen for the first three seasons. After that, it’s been a season at a time,” he said.
‘You get the scripts a month before we start shooting, or six weeks, and then you know what’s going to happen that season.
‘But, I don’t know what’s going to happen next season. We go back in October, so maybe in the next few weeks, we’ll get the scripts and I’ll find out. I’m very curious.’
Well... all things must come to an end, right?

Game of Thrones is the brainchild of George R.R Martins, author of the  epic-fantasy series of novels - A Song of Ice & Fire; the first book of the series being ‘Game of Thrones’.  Martins, who is a co-executive producer of the show, can only be described as the American version of J.R.R Tolkien (probably called that already), the show having such a huge following since probably Doctor Who

 What  we will  get next, A Lord of the Rings  T.V series? 

Funke Akindele Is Going To Be A Mummy!

No longer a rumour, Nollywood  actress Funke Akindele is going to be a mummy, as she  and music producer JJC Skillz are definitely expecting their first child. Akindele’s baby bump was very noticeable at the Glo Lafta Fest 2017 held yesterday in Festac, Lagos. Let’s hope she’ll be able to juggle  impending motherhood and her show ‘Jenifa’s Diary’ with ease but no doubt she will have her husband’s loving support with it. 

 Best of luck to the couple.

'My Wife & I' Premires In Lagos

The premiere of the new Nollywood comedy; My Wife and I, took place yesterday at the Imax Filmhouse Cinema, in Lekki, Lagos. The event had quite the turn out, with several Nollywood celebrities from Ngozi Nwosu to Omotola Jalade Eikende. 

My Wife and I is about a couple who are successful in every other aspect of their lives, except their marriage and parenting; she's the stern Mummy while he's the fun Daddy. Their decision to make things work leads them to Pastor Theophilus, who puts them through a series of unfortunate events after intentionally or unintentionally making them walk in each other's shoes; literally

 Sounds just a bit like the 80's movies Like Father, Like Son, Vice Versa  and  2003’s Freaky Friday  but a welcome change to the usual Nollywood norm. Plus, it would be hilarious to see Nouah's feminine side for once!

It stars handsome veteran actor Ramsey Nouah and actress and producer Omoni Oboli, who were previously co-stars in Kunle Afolayan's 2009 movie, The Figurine.  

Speaking of head turners, Nouah looked absolutely dashing as always in his sharp suit but the lovely Oboli was the belle of the event as she stole the show in her amazing Ceoluminee evening gown.

My Wife and I will be released in cinemas on the 25th this month.
