Nigeria gets emotional over Yvonne Nelson’s movie
Nigerian movie fans have been tweeting at popular actress Yvonne Nelson about how they could not hold back their tears while watching her newly produced movie, ‘If Tomorrow Never Comes’.
The movie was officially released into Nigerian cinemas on July 3 and has since been enjoying great attention from the viewing public.
“I don’t cry while watching movies but tears rolled down my cheeks as I watched Yvonne Nelson’s If Tomorrow Never Comes,” a movie fan who watched the movie tweeted at the actress cum producer.
“This movie was just so touching. Cried all through,” another fan said on instagram.
“Wow this movie; it is a must watch movie. I think everyone needs to watch it and see for your own self. It touched my soul yesterday,” another said.
The movie’s premiere in Accra last month produced similar results when a number of Ghanaian movie fans shed tears at the public event due to the movie’s emotional tone.
Yvonne touched down in Lagos on Sunday to further promote it to those who haven’t seen it yet.
If Tomorrow Never Comes tells an epic story of a young girl, Ewurabana, who was sold into slavery by her wicked uncle after her mother died leaving her and her kid brother in the village.
She went through all kinds of grievous treatments in the hands of her handlers.
It stars Yvonne Nelson, David Dontoh, Khareema Aguiar, Becca, Kweku Elliot, Bismark The Joke, Adeyemi Okowlawon and others.
