THE REALE COLLECTION by UGO MONYE

The REALE by Ugo Monye is a three-Piece Robe inspired by the “Agbada” – a Nigerian traditional attire. REALE is an Italian word meaning “Royal”, encapsulating the essence of the collection.

Ugo Monye, one of Nigeria’s top fashion brand, known for its trend setting styles has designed and produced attires for Nigerians, foreign corporate personalities, and celebrities including Jidenna (Grammy nominee), Joke Silva, Uti (BBA), Alex Okubo, Gbenro Ajibade to name a few.

A lot of men find it difficult to wear and handle the Agbada due to its bulky nature but the REALE introduces the open robe concept which is simple to wear yet stylish.

The REALE is a fusion of silk, cotton and wool fabrics. It’s for the bold, ambitious and strong man who is all about tradition yet desires comfort and style.

EbonyLife’s Royal Hibiscus Hotel triumphs with sold-out premiere at TIFF 2017

 

Capture

Star-studded screening of new romantic comedy is well received by the diverse and appreciative audience.

Toronto, Canada – The latest production from EbonyLife Films, The Royal Hibiscus Hotel (RHH) debuted to a full house of nearly 500 people on Saturday, September 9that the Scotiabank Theatre, in Toronto. During a brief Q&A after the film, lucky fans got a chance to meet the cast, including Zainab Balogun, Kenneth Okolie, Rachel Oniga, Jide Kosoko, Kemi ‘Lala’ Akindoju and Toni Tones, director Ishaya Bako and several members of the production crew who were rather conspicuous in their fashion. At the end of the presentation, the actors were rushed by guests eager for selfies.

Jide Kosoko stood out especially, rocking his all-black ‘Agbada’ flawlessly, no doubt representing the Yoruba apparel to the fullest; along side other fashionable celebrities.

In the run-up to the premiere, the audience had been teased with a trailer, a glowing profile and the fact that The Royal Hibiscus Hotel had been identified as a ‘Hidden Gem’ by Toronto International Film Festival. Many of the attendees were TIFF members and regulars, united in their quest to view diverse African content. Others were familiar with EbonyLife and were yearning to see a new movie from the producers of some of Nigeria’s most successful films.

 

 

 

Set in Lagos and London, The Royal Hibiscus Hotel tells the story of a disillusioned London chef, ‘Ope’, who returns to Nigeria and discovers that going home can bring unexpected surprises. As the only Nigerian title and one of only three African feature films, it has attracted so much interest that the remaining two screenings on 11th and 17th September are sold out as well.

 

Mo Abudu, the Executive Producer, is ecstatic about the sold-out premiere and the public response to the other screenings. “The eagerness of fans to see this movie in Toronto is overwhelming and humbling. It shows that people want to enjoy good, quality stories from any part of the world. We are incredibly proud of RHH and so grateful for the love everyone is showing,” she said.

 

With all the celebrities and attendees present in all sorts of cultural/corporate attires we’re certain the international scene hasn’t seen the last of African/Nigerian fashion and talent, especially on the Big Screens.
