It’s been 3 years in the making and a true a labour of love.  ‘Find Her Keep Her’ by first time British Nigerian director Namure Aibangbee premiered at the VUE cinema in the O2 Arena London. In lush surroundings, canapés were served courtesy of celebrity Chef Collin Brown which set the mood of the night. Everyone and their mum attended and was enjoyed by cast and guests such as
