A new movie, The Progressive Tailors Club, was recently premiered at the Filmhouse Cinemas IMAX, Lekki, Lagos, in atmosphere of conviviality and undiluted entertainment.
The event was sponsored by the Bigi soft drink brand, produced by Rite Foods, which has consistently demonstrated its support for the growth of the Nigerian movie industry.
The highlight of the premiere was a fashion competition organised by Bigi for 20 shortlisted fashion designers across the country who had participated in an online campaign to showcase their creativity.
Three winners eventually emerged from the contest, and they include Debbie Kouture from Ekiti State, who clinched the first prize of N150,000; while The Daiamen and Lamoimee, both from Lagos, emerged second and third with N100,000 and N50,000 respectively.

The movie’s producer, Niyi Akinmolayan, commended the sponsor of the premiere and expressed confidence that the film would be enjoyed by movie lovers. Speaking about the movie, he stated that the film is built around the nature of Nigerians, but from tailors’ perspectives, as they come up with different characters which are sometimes funny and provocative.

In her remark, the Bigi’s Brand Manager, Boluwatife Adedugbe, stated that the company was committed to promoting Nigerian talents in entertainment, special skills, and ‘ideapreneurship’.
She noted that the movie industry contributes massively to the country’s gross domestic product and should be assisted to create more revenue for young Nigerians attracted to it.
