Acts with Hollywood’s Sam Sarpong

Omoni Oboli who said she was not happy for being snubbed by organizers of Africa’s biggest award seems to have gotten her deserved honour in far away Canada where she starred alongside Sam Sarpong, an Hollywood actor as lead act.

Omoni who recently returned to Nigeria few days ago was the only Nigerian on set of the movie shot by another Nigerian, Lonzo Nzekwe . She said the movie was one of the biggest events in her career.

Said she “The movie more than any other thing compensated for my loss at the Africa Awards. I had fun and it was very big, it was shot on red camera and the personalities behind it were extraordinary”.

The movie, Anchor Baby, is the story of Paul (Sam Sarpong) and Joyce (Omoni Oboli), a married couple from Nigeria living in the United States as illegal immigrants. Joyce is five months pregnant. The couple intends to have their baby in the US , before returning to their country. This will guarantee them automatic US citizenship but Paul is later deported and that was where the real drama begins.

Omoni who recently won City People’s best actress award told Showbiznow that she was more than fulfilled to be part of the crew and acting alongside Sam.

Meanwhile, the lead actress in Figurine has concluded plans to go to the New York Film Academy to learn the art of digital film making. She will leave any moment from now as her class begins this month. “I am going to learn digital film making and will then return a better person to contribute my quota to Nollywood” she said. May be when she returns, she will get her deserved honour at home.
