Press Release: The 3rd BARONESS J'S SISTAS AND DIVAS EVENING (#SADE) on Monday/2/January 2017


#SADE is an annual event started in 2014 by the CEO BaronessJ Media and Events. 
It was primarily intended to be a one-off event aimed at bringing together women from different cliques and sections of the London Nigerian community, to simply relax, meet new contacts, renew fractured acquaintances, eat, drink, dance and generally have a ladies fun night out without men or children. But the event was such a big success that many of the women who attended demanded that the event be held again. And thus was birthed the Annual Baroness J's Sistas And Divas Evening. 

Every year the advent of the event is used as a medium to create awareness and also to raise funds for the organiser's chosen charitable organisation. In the past the event has supported and rasied hundreds  of pounds for BritAfrique Charity and Focus on Disability Foundation

#SADE 2016
This year, the organiser has chosen to focus on Breast Cancer Awareness especially among Black/Nigerian women. 
According to Jummy Ariyo Baronessj, there is not enough awareness of the disease reaching the Black community and studies show that due to ignorance of early symptoms of breast cancer or failure to carry our regular checks, black woman are most likely to present themselves for treatment at very late stages of the disease often resulting in needless loss of lives whereas early detection can enable life saving treatment.

There will be a raffle draw at the event. All proceeds as well as 5% of every ticket sold will be donated towards Breast Cancer Research UK to support their groundbreaking work and research into further lifesaving treatments.

PRESS RELEASE: The London Premiere of Niyi Towolawi's DESECRATION the Movie Starring Rita Dominic & Joseph Benjamin @ The Lighthouse on Fri/11/Nov

Kherut Films Releases film: Desecration, feature film
For Immediate Release
London, 11th of November, 2016

Bode Odetoye of Kherut Films recently completed production of star studded cinematic thriller. Helming the motion picture as director is international multi-award winner, Niyi Towolawi of HekCentrik Films.

Set and shot in London, UK, the film stars Nollywood heavyweights, Rita Dominic, Joseph Benjamin and Rykardo Agboh, alongside UK actors of both Nigerian and British backgrounds, such as Nicola Alexis (currently starring in Harry Porter musical), Max Cavenham, Moji Bamtefa, Ken Smart and delightful seven year old Angel Agala. Incidentally, this is director Towolawi’s first feature film set in London, having shot his previous three in the US and Nigeria.

Says Bode Odetoye about the project: “after years of following his work and a few more spent planning to do something together, it was great to finally work with Niyi Towolawi. I call him my erudite director and it was a positive experience that I can’t wait to do all over again.”  About the experience of his debut production, Odetoye continues, “It was a steep learning curve but one that I will treasure”.

The film explores how a casual fling quickly becomes a living nightmare for Olushola Daniels and his family, after being captivated by one other than his wife.

Niyi Towolawi adds, “it was an absolute pleasure shooting a feature in London and getting the opportunity to photograph this beautiful city, working with close allies and a producer that allowed me so much space to put my signature as an auteur on the film”.

Desecration will premiere on the 11th of November 2016 at The Lighthouse, London and is set for cinema release across Africa and beyond in 2017.
