Rita Dominic and Ini Edo

But for the delay and bureaucratic bottlenecks of the South Africa Embassy in Lagos, Nollywood stars, Rita Dominic and Ini Edo would have been returning from Madiba’s country.

South Africa, which is fast becoming notorious for its visas, was said to have delayed processing of visas for the stars until last minutes despite pleas that they were heading for the country to attend the World Economic Forum, which Oando sponsored and Managing Director of Mnet, Biola Alabi, was the moderator.

The actresses alongside Desmond Elliot were billed to attend the Economic Forum, but only Desmond made it because he already had a visa. Rita and Ini waited almost in vain, but got their passports back on Wednesday, same day the Nollywood Night of the World Economic Forum was to hold, and by then it was too late as there was no flight to Johannesburg. Thus, the two Nollywood stars missed the event.
