Rita Dominic, Eldee Flop At 'The Headies' 2011
Nollywood star Rita Dominic may pass as an outstanding actress but apparently, with the shameful part of her art she displayed at the 2011 edition of 'The Headies' (formerly HipHop World Awards), it may not be wrong describe her as a disastrous compere.
Dominic, alongside her co-host singer Lanre Dabiri better known as Eldee made a complete mess of their performance as hosts at the award show held on Saturday, October 22, 2011 at the Eko Hotel and Suites, Lagos.
The two, nervously delivered their lines and at some point seemed they were woken up from a deep sleep and whisked to the event as they appeared dumber and dumber each time they appeared on stage - all that was seen as impressive about them was Rita's make up and their outfits.
Perhaps, Eldee, who as a performer was expected to be used to a large crowd, was infected by Rita Dominic's regrettable performance. However, his performance was way upbeat than Rita's as he helped the actress get into the mood a couple of time but a timid Rita was just too nervous to comport herself.
Reliably gathered that the award organizers were displeased and embarrassed by the actress' performance.
Other industry big guns at the event also noted that Rita Dominic's performance was the worse in the history of the awards.
However, many also berated Eldee for lighting a cigar and puffing it at quick intervals on stage at the time a sensitive documentary such as incessant 'rape' of teenage girls and women in general was rolling on the projector.
