It is not every day you attend a premiere of a movie and you get the bonus of a live concert, but when God is for something, what or who can be against it?
Stepping Into Maggie’s Shoes (SIMS) is a fully gospel movie that is set to hit the box office in a new way soon, and the premiere, which took place at Lagos Oriental Hotel on Sunday, December 23 had in attendance stars from the film like Mike Abdul, Femi Jacobs, Eucharia Anunobi, Liz Ameye, Woli Agba, and a few others.
Produced and written by Opeyemi Akintunde – a young passionate Christian belonging to the crop of new gospel actors, SIMS is a first of its kind gospel movie directed by David Kola Okeowo.
At the star-studded premiere of SIMS, not only was there a parade of glamorously clad celebrities and guests alike, attendees were treated to the best of gospel music and ministrations from top-notch gospel artistes that gave the event a spice.
Leading the train of gospel music artistes were members of Midnight Crew, alongside the likes of Bidemi Olaoba, Beejay Sax, Nosa, and a few others.
Olukoya and his wife, Pastor Folashade Olukoya; Iya Adura Esther Ajayi, Tonye Cole and a number of other men and women of God.
SIMS passionately tells the story of a young wealthy Pastor who is desired by most of the single ladies in his congregation. The sudden loss of his previously unlettered, dumpy wife to suicide opens the doors to a new wife, many other sins, new challenges and a ministry in disarray.
No one is left out of the charade of shame and greed as the characters in the movie mirror real-life situations, thereby making the movie a must-watch for everyone.
