Tamara Eteimo’s Somewhere Down the Line premiered in style
In what may be described as a kind of solidarity with one of their own, a number of Nollywood stars graced Tamara Eteimo with their presence during the premiere of her much-talked about movie, Somewhere Down the Line, at the Silverbird, Ikeji City Mall, Lagos, recently.
One of the highpoints of the night was when Tamara, who played a twin character in the movie, thrilled the guests with her singing prowess.
In a chat with The Nation, Tamara said: “Before the screening, I was tensed. Naturally, you will be tensed because you don’t want anything to go wrong. But at the same time, I had to tell myself, ‘Tamara, calm down. If anything goes wrong, you are still who you are.’ But seeing people’s reactions during the premiere, this is just God telling me, ‘My daughter, I’m always strongly behind you. I’m really, really happy. And I’m encouraged to do more. But this is not for producers not to give me jobs because I’m still an actress.”
Somewhere Down the Line, produced on the stable of Sola Fajobi’s Origin 8 and directed by Alex Mouth, centres on surrogacy. It features Bukky Wright, Yemi Blaq, Rachel Oniga and Mary Lazarus, Yinka Ayelokun, Adetomiwa Kukoyi, Yinka Salau, kingsley Ogboso and others.
Somewhere Down the line tells the story of a couple, Tolu and Goke who, eight years into their marriage, remain childless. They choose the path of IVF, but it leads them down an emotional destination, causing more sorrow than joy.
The couple agrees on surrogacy, but it turns out that Grace, the surrogate, becomes emotionally attached ‘Somewhere Down the Line’ and does not want to part with the foetus in her womb.
The red carpet, which was sponsored by P&G, had in attendance notable filmmaker Kunle Afolayan, Saheed Balogun, Ireti Osayemi, Doris Simeon, Foluke Daramola-Salako, Gbenga Adeyinka, Alex Mouth, Thandekile Maseko, Sola Fajobi and Mary Lazarus, among others.
