The United Bank for Africa (UBA)’s Lifestyle and Entertainment channel, REDTV, is launching its star-studded blockbuster movie, ‘Unintentional’ on boxing day, December 26th, 2021. The movie stars some of Africa’s biggest names in the movie industry, featuring Kate Henshaw, Efa Iwara, OmowumI Dada, Beverly Osu, Chioma Okoli, Tina MBA, Mike Uchegbu.

Unintentional is a feel good, love story that follows Sefi Madaki (played by Omowumi Dada) and her best friend Rosy (Beverly Osu) on a journey of self-discovery after a tumultuous heartbreak during the start of their Youth Service year.

Filmed around the beautiful landscape of Enugu State in Nigeria, the movie delves into the lives of two young African girls on a road trip that leads to the discovery of love in the most expected place.

The Executive Producer of REDTV, Bola Atta, who spoke excitedly about the new movie was thrilled about the first feature length movie for the network.

She said, “We are excited to be entering a new phase in the life of REDTV as we launch “unintentional’. It is different from what viewers have been seeing on the channel but still has the allure and beauty that REDTV is known for. For me, it is the breath taking scenes of Enugu that hold me spell bound in this movie. We keep saying that we are bringing the best of Africa to the world and we are not just talking about talents, but also the beauty of the continent.’

‘This year, it will be a quiet boxing day for most. No boxing day sales in some countries around the world that have again gone into some kind of lock down. But it’s a different world that we find ourselves in and we are fast adjusting to navigating it in the best possible way. I will be glued to my home screen the day after Christmas, as I anticipate the launch of unintentional’ added Atta.

Unintentional was scripted by Zeina Otonjo and directed by Olufemi Bamigbetan.

Powered by UBA’s Lifestyle and Entertainment channel, award winning REDTV has produced hit series like The Men’s Club, Assistant Madams, Our Best Friend’s Wedding, Inspector K, RED Hot Topics, Public Figure, Hotel Boutique and a host of other entertaining content.

Grammy award winner Burna Boy electrified fans at the FirstBank Decemberissavybe campaign with a sterling performance at the ‘Burna Boy The Live Experience’. The 30-year-old singer expressed how delighted he was to have relocated back to Nigeria at the concert.

The self-claimed ‘African Giant’ performed a catalog of his songs from 2012 to 2021 at the Eko Convention Center Lagos which was filled to the brim with fans.

FirstBank – through its yearly DecemberIssaVybe campaign – unveiled the 2021 calendar of events earlier in December as it reiterates its impact on the arts and entertainment industry. The campaign which started in 2018 has been making waves across the cities in the country and Nigerians.

Speaking on Burna Boy’s concert as one of the events lined up for campaign, the Group Head of Marketing and Corporate Communications, FirstBank, Ms Folake Ani-Mumuney said: “We are delighted to be back with DecemberIssaVybe”.

“Burna Boy’s concert further shows that the 2021 edition is enriched with loads of impactful and celebratory activities as we witness the year-end.

“As a bank woven into the fabric of society, we have ensured that the events are spread across the country and there is an event for everyone, irrespective of age. “We remain committed through resourceful partnerships to nation building; empowering all including the youth to achieve their dreams as these events promote the continued growth of the entertainment industry, unarguably an economic game-changer in the global business landscape, especially a country like ours that is blessed with talents and amazing creative minds,’’ she concluded.

Here are some of the highlights from his performance:

Returning to Nigeria was my best decision

Amid his performance, the Burna Boy proudly told fans that the best decision he has ever made was returning to Nigeria. “Coming back home is the best decision I’ve made.” He took the opportunity to thank his fans for the love shown towards him since his career berthed.

Practise what you preach

The African Giant was reborn when Burna Boy decided to practise what he preaches. For his first outfit of the night, Burna was dressed like a full African royalty. He was decked in a tuxedo adorned with a Gorilla fur design on both arms. And he swayed from left to right as he elegantly showed off the richness of African tradition.

The African Giant

The Nation observed the high point of Burna Boy’s 3-hour long concert was when he showed that truly his aim is to unite Africans in Africa through entertainment. During the show, Burna Boy invited his African collaborators ‘Black Sherif’ and the ‘Yaba Buluku’ singers on stage to perform alongside him. The moment was one of the memorable moments of the night.

And fans got a thank you message

Burna Boy performed so many songs from his classics which saw the fans singing along. After the show, he appreciated his fans for coming through and the love they’ve shown him thus far. Burna Boy returned to Nigeria after leaving the United Kingdom to continue his quest for fame and stardom. His decision paid off after the hit single, ‘Like to party’ kicked off his career in full swing in 2012.
