The celebrated selection of Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive has been based on the skewed statistics of narrow-minded American tabloid journalists and deliberately skewed towards the American world view.
Tracy Obonna is hotter, prettier and sexier than Rihanna, Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive and will humble Tulisa Contostavlos of FHM’s 100 Sexiest Women In The World 2012:. The American born Nigerian sex symbol is the epitome of beauty with brains whose amazing voluptuous body makes Rihanna and every other Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive look ordinary from head to toe, because Tracy Obonna, aka the Nigerian Bombshell is actually sexier than them all. And it is also necessary to correct the erroneous notion of the narrow-minded selection of Esquire over the years, because it is generally wrong to name any woman sexiest woman alive without any consideration for the most eligible women outside America, which is what American tabloids have been doing in discrimination and disregard of other exotic beautiful and voluptuous women who are not recognized by the narrow-minded American news media. The American news media wants to dictate trends to the rest of us, but this is unacceptable, because the rest of the world is different from America and not inferior to America. What is hot or not in America is different from what is hot or not in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Australia and Europe.

In fact we know from the records of all the winners of the Miss World, Miss Universe and other global beauty pageants that there are prettier and sexier women in other countries than America. Therefore, the Esquire cannot make an American selection of sexy women and name them sexiest women alive without the consideration and inclusion of sexy women outside their purview. There is more to the beauty and sexuality of femininity than what is seen through the rosé tinted spectacles of Hollywood. The beauty of any woman being the sexiest woman alive is more than meets the eye of the Esquire of America and their Hollywood. We have made our own inquiries online and offline and have stumbled upon our own epitome of the sexiest woman alive who is black, bold and beautiful enough to be named the Sexiest Black Woman Alive in the world Tracy Obonna and you are welcome to compare her to every woman Esquire has named Sexiest Woman Alive and see if she is not sexier than them all.

Angelina Jolie’s Baptism of Fire

Angelina Jolie on Vanity Fair

Famous American actress Angelina Jolie‘s thrilling new film In the Land of Blood and Honey, which she admits has changed her view on acting is her baptism of fire as a director and screenwriter.

She said her beau Brad Pitt thought she was going to have nightmares on location. But “I had such a good experience he thinks I’m going to be impatient with directors, which I already am. I get impatient with people working on a film that have their head in their hands like it’s the most complicated thing in the world.”

I had the flu,” Jolie says. “I had to be quarantined from the children for two days. I was in the attic of a house in France. I was isolated, pacing. I don’t watch TV and I wasn’t reading anything. So I started writing. I went from the beginning to the end. I didn’t know any other way.”

“I’m not pregnant. I’m not adopting at the moment. And no secret wedding,” she said boldly.

Jolie is twice married and divorced from actors Jonny Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton before settling down with Brad Pitt with whom she has three adopted children, Maddox, Pax, and Zahara, and three biological children, Shiloh, Knox and and Vivienne.

In the Land of Blood and Honey is a thrilling love story during the traumatic Bosnian Civil War in the early 1990s and produced in both in English and the Bosnian-Croatian-Serbian language known as BCS. The film is expected to be released on December 23, 2011.

Jeta Amata is working on new film after “Black Gold”

Jeta Amata

Nick Vivarelli of the Variety reported that the ambitious Nigerian filmmaker is already working on a new international film after making “Black Gold”.

The director who is also well known for his daring film “The Amazing Grace” is going to focus on the corrupt practices of pharmaceutical multinationals in Africa in his new film “Journeys of One,” with Donald Ranvaud of “The Constant Gardner” fame as an executive producer.

Amata’s “Black Gold” had a market premiere at the 64th Cannes Film Festival. The film on the Niger Delta crisis featured top Hollywood actors like Tom Sizemore, Billy Zane and Hakeem Kae-Kazim.

“Journeys of One” will be a way to provide a more genuine take on the Big Pharma in Africa theme tackled by Hollywood in Fernando Meirelles’ “The Constant Gardner”. We like Hollywood coming to tell our story; but they miss some of the essence of the African point of view,” Amata said.

Variety reported that Amata, producer Soledad Grognett and Ranvaud are looking for a name African-American actor for one of the key roles in “Journeys” and likely to also feature an Indian star.

“The idea is to make it Hollywood, Nollywood — as the Nigerian film industry is know — and Bollywood; the three biggest markets in the world,” said Amata. “If you go to the remote villages where they don’t have proper means of communication, you find people just dying unnecessarily,” he added. “And though they don’t realize it, the real thing that killed them was some drug that they weren’t meant to take.”

“The environment in Nigeria makes it a haven for these people (the pharmaceutical companies) to run whatever tests they want and treat people like rats and guinea pigs,” Grognett added.

International Endorsements for Eko Film Festival

International endorsements for Eko film festival

Hope Obioma Opara

With experiences and ideas gathered over the years while attending film festivals around the globe, Hope Opara is poised to host the first ever Eko international film festival between July 7 and 12, 2010. His passion and journey into the world of film festivals began in November 2008, when he attended the 30th edition of the Nantes film festival in France.

He later raised the stakes when he attended the 62nd edition of the Cannes Film Festival, and had a memorable encounter with super star actress, Angelina Jolie. He happily documented the life changing meeting in Supple magazine, which he started publishing and editing since August 2008, after six years experience as a successful printer.

Hope returned home with the motivation to launch a new film festival buoyed by the much publicized report of Nigeria as having the largest movie-making industry in Africa and the second largest in the world.

“A close associate of mine came up with the name: Eko International Film Festival. He posted it online in August 2009. By the following month, it was duly registered by me. Both of us had never undertaken any film festival project before now and knew definitely that we would be needing help.”

He eventually found a mentor in the person of Bruno Chatelin, co-founder of, a web portal launched in 1995. Bruno was in charge of the launch of over 250 films during his tenure as Marketing Director and Managing Director for Columbia TriStar Films and Twentieth Century Fox.

After meeting Bruno in Paris, they sealed a deal that makes a media partner to Eko international film festival, a feat Opara described as an unprecedented morale booster that would help realize his dream of turning his festival into a world-class gathering of movie people.

To network and gather more experience for his forthcoming festival, Opara returned again to Europe for the Rotterdam International Film Festival in the Netherlands, as well as the 60th edition of the Berlinale, in Germany. “I now feel convinced that I could put together a successful world-class film festival.”

Hardworking Opara had this to say on funding: “We are making sacrifice towards raising the needed funds for Eko International film festival, and what we need most is money to host the filmmakers and accredited journalists and enough to rent the halls we would need to screen selected films.
We need over a million dollars to make this dream of a mega film festival a reality.
We have started the fund-raising drive. We are seeking the cooperation and support of local and international sponsors. We have attracted the interest of some Nigerian banks and we expect to close deals with some prospective sponsors shortly,” he explained.

Interestingly, news of the forthcoming festival is currently spreading within and outside Nollywood, especially on the internet and Hope Opara is upbeat. “Eko international film festival will provide exciting new business and tourism opportunities. It’s going to be great fun for filmmakers and lovers of films in Nigeria and many thousands of film aficionados coming from outside our shores. The festival will definitely be a plus for Nollywood and Nigeria… For more info, kindly visit our site,”
