Carmen Ejogo at "007" London Premiere + Updates on Akon & Boris

Carmen Ejogo and her husband Jeffrey Wright attended the London premiere of the latest Bond film, "Quantum of Solace" at the Odeon Leiceter Square on Thursday night. Jeffrey also appeared in the 2006 Bond film, "Casino Royale." Check out that Obama pin Jeffrey has on. Celebrity fashion designer Ozwald Boateng was also at the premiere...

I'm definitely looking forward to the new Bond film. Do expect to see these two on the red carpet this Fall thanks to Jeffery's role in "Cadillac Records."

I just heard Akon's new song with Lil' Wayne and Young Jeezy called "I'm So Paid" on the radio and now there's a video premiere floating on the blogosphere. Akon's upcoming album, "Freedom" will be in stores on December 2nd. Check it out...

Boris Kodjoe and his wife Nicole Ari Parker were seen at the HollyRod event last night in Atlanta. (Thanks Natasha!) The HollyRod Foundation-sponspered event was hosted by actress Holly Robinson Peete in support of the style trends from designer Kevan Hall. The couple took photos with Essence Atkins (remember her from "Smart Guy"?!)

Random Thoughts:
My shoe crush goes to these black pointy-toe shoes from Manolo Blahnik as worn by Ashley Olsen and Thandie Newton. Fashion blog/FG2BH friend Favored Fashion Fix is not helping my situation (copyright T.I.)!

Do you guys have any Naija/Ghana films that you think I should see? I had my eyes on "A Piece of My Flesh" and "Tomorrow Must Wait."
