Hollywood actor Daniel Kaluuya and ace director of “Queen and Slim” director Melina Matsoukas were in Lagos over the weekend to promote the new film. The premiere held at the Filmhouse Cinema in Lekki, Lagos.

 

In the film, Slim and Queen’s first date takes an unexpected turn when a policeman pulls them over for a minor traffic violation. When the situation escalates, Slim takes the officer’s gun and shoots him in self-defence.

 

A video of the incident goes viral. Now labelled cop killers, Slim and Queen have no choice but to go on the run to evade the law. The unwitting outlaws soon become a symbol of trauma, terror, grief and pain for people all across the country.

 

The Lagos premiere was attended by Daniel Kaluuya, Melina Matsoukas, Osas Ighodaro, Dr Sid, Eku Edewor, Meg Otanwa, and Judith Audu Foght. Also at the event were celebrities Uti Nwachukwu, Bollylomo, Ozzy Agu, DJ Lambo, Latasha Ngwube, Denola Grey, Olisa Adibua, Nonso Bassey, Shade Ladipo and more.
