The stars of the newly released PlayNetwork Studios “Glamour Girls” remake — Nse Ikpe-Etim, Sharon Ooja, Toke Makinwa, Segilola Ogidan & Joselyn Dumas look ravishing on the cover of ThisDay Style Magazine’s latest issue.

In this issue, they speak on what it means to be part of the remake of an iconic movie, how they tried to bring their characters to life and much more.


Read excerpts from the interview below:


Nse Ikpe-Etim on the most challenging part about bringing the script to life?

Every project has challenges because every new role comes with a new character one has to embody, and that is where challenges lie for me as an actress. Playing “Donna” was exceptionally challenging because “Glamour Girls” is a title that comes with nostalgia and big shoes to fill. Anyhoo, this is Glamour Girls in these times, and it is very humbling that I got to play “Mama Bear” Donna…

Sharon Ooja on the message in the film “Glamour Girls” connects with current events and what it seeks to address

Glamour girls addresses the fast life and the consequences that come with it. It addresses the fact that all that glitters isn’t gold and how hard work pays… a lot of people want things fast without working hard.

Segilola Ogidan on what shehates most about her character

I don’t hate her per se. She’s beautifully flawed, which is not necessarily her fault but due to her upbringing and the lack of love and attention shown to her by her parents and siblings. That said, I dislike some of her character flaws, particularly her lack of control over her life because she’s constantly drugged up.

Joselyn Dumas on what she loves about the character she played

Jemma’s heart. As I say, she’s the truth and the spice. She’s good to a fault; when she loves, she loves to bits. You see her strip off all sorts of emotions. We see her vulnerable moments, highs, lows and everything in between and through it all, staying strong amid her adversaries.*

Toke Makinwa on how it feels to be part of the project

I feel so honoured and extremely blessed to have been a part of such an epic movie. As we all know, Glamour girls is one of the movies that shaped Nollywood in the 90s. You can’t think of old Nollywood movies without mentioning Glamour girls because it was sensational. The remake in these present times will be even more sensational, and I get to play one of the lead characters too. I can’t wait for the world to watch this amazing project.

Daniel Kaluuya Is Essence Magazine’s Dapper Latest Issue Cover Star

Published

on

By

Academy Award-winning Ugandan-British actor Daniel Kaluuya is serving looks and style on the latest cover issue of Essence Magazine.

Daniel Kaluuya speaks with filmmaker Jordan Peele about his anticipated movie, “Nope.”

The publication got the trailblazing talents together ahead of the release for a candid conversation about their unique relationship as actor and director—and the deliberateness that has made Kaluuya the star he is today.

“I’ve never told you this, but when you reached out to me and we had that Skype, I was really disillusioned with acting,” the Oscars and Golden Globes winner revealed to Peele. “I had stopped acting for like a year and a half. I checked out, because I was just like, this isn’t working. I wasn’t getting roles, because racism and all this kind of stuff — so you reaching out was like, ‘OK, I’m not crazy. It’s proper. It’s going to be all right.’”

Kaluuya also said that he has seen a difference between audiences in Britan and in the United States.

“It’s something I learned on the press run for Judas and the Black Messiah,” he said. “A lot of times people think I’m guarded, but I’m just new. I’m in a new country. Then, when I was being more open, people were talking to me about the interviews — and I’m like, Why are you talking about the interviews? They weren’t talking about the film.”

He continued, “In England, you don’t root for people the same way. In America, it’s like, ‘Oh, that’s my guy. He’s got my perspective. Or she’s got my perspective. Cool, I’m rolling with them.’ In England, it’s about talent, and I think in America it’s about the character of a person.”
