Talented Nollywood actress, Faithia Williams, has just joined the exclusive club of movie producers in Nigeria with the recent private screening of her new short movie, titled Connection in Lagos
The event, held at the Radisson Hotel in Ikeja, just before the close of 2018, coincided with the launch of her new website where her fans can catch a full glimpse of her life, what she stands for, her works and how to reach her for more work. The talented actress plans to use the platform as a tool to reach thousands of her fans globally.
Williams also used the opportunity to re-activate her Non-Governmental Organisation and to campaign for the girl child. The NGO, she indicated, would seek to address issues surrounding the girl child in Nigeria and in Africa. Some of these issues will be brought to bear through advocacy, strategic movies, giveaways and counseling to the girl child and their guardians.
The movie premiere was attended by many celebrities, including Toyin Abraham, Etinosa Idemudia, Muyiwa Ademola, Kemi Afolabi, Dayo Amusa, Yomi Fash, Bimbo Thomas, ChinneyLove, Ayo Adesanya, Tayo Odueke and Bimbo Ogunnowo- Afolayan, to mention a few.
Written by Williams herself and Directed by Desmond Elliot, ‘Connection’ stars award-winning actors, such as Odunlade Adekola, Toyin Abraham, Kate Henshaw, Muyiwa Ademola, Iyabo Ojo, Priscillia Ojo and more.
Williams’ movie career spans more than one decade. She has appeared in many movies, including the Yoruba Demon and Seven and a Half Dates, to name a few.
The actress, in an interview with our correspondent, disclosed that her greatest ambition as an artiste had always been to make a lasting impact on the society.
“Many people often ask why I am making the kind of moves that I have made lately. I have told them that I want to make a lasting impact in the world. I don’t just want to be a fine face in front of the camera every day, I am interested in impacting people positively. Acting is just one of the ways I can do that.
The movie ‘Connection’ is about the girl child and so is my foundation as well. I will be telling more of these stories and doing more in this regard. It is also why I have set up my personal website. I want to to interact and share with my direct constituency regularly. More announcements are coming and as you hear them, please bear in mind that the new Faithia Williams is doing these things to make a lasting impact in the world”, she said.
