RAA is not just a training institution but a youth empowerment centre. We don’t just teach you how to act, we make sure you act so that when you step into the outside world, you have something to show for it, an edge over a million people vying for the same role as you. The first batch of students all featured in CATWALQ, our soap which will hit your screens in the second quarter of next year. It’s the biggest thing in recent times and will be a major break for the students.
For the second batch, we’re already working on their own tv series. RAA made a promise and KEPT it.
The next RAA session starts in Febuary and will run till April but registration opens January 3rd. Spaces are always limited.

Dallas - A remarkable Nollywood movie “Holding Hope” was premiered in Dallas, Texas; courtesy of Nkiruka Entertainment, Townkrier.com, and Golden Icons. Testimonial comments at the Red Carpet Premiere of this movie by the Royal Arts Academy cast members, who flew in all the way from Lagos, Nigeria, described everything about the event as classy, different, nice, and excellent. Based on such positive comments and feedback, it was not a surprise to witness the VIP section of the theater being SOLD OUT. It was also nice to see that this wonderful production “Holding Hope” was packed with intrigue, excitement, and entertainment scenes, which left the fans in a delighted state.
The overall aftermath of the Premiere of “Holding Hope” in Dallas left the city with the beginning of good things to come. The African community in Dallas came out in droves to support their own stars. It also appeared like the timing of this premiere was planned – as it coincided with the birthday of one of the Executive Directors “Emem Isong”, and a surprise birthday cake was presented to her at the hosts, Ifeoma Nkiru’s family house.
Upon our arrival at the “Studio Movie Grill” theater, the press along with the fans and guests were already waiting outside to welcome the Nollywood Stars with their Canon and Nikon flash lights. Desmond stepped out with a big smile, while shaking his fans in his shinning-custom Italian cut suit. Uche Jombo, Emem Isong, Rukky Sanda, and their invited friends were all looking gorgeous and slick in their glamorous evening dresses as well.
Jessica Isiguzor aka J.I, the Nollywood Movie “Rebound” Lead actress was also present at the premiere. Another guest of honor that accompanied the Nollywood stars to the event was Julie Odia, the publisher of WOW magazine, who was also present to show her support and love to the cast of Holding Hope. Uche Jombo is currently featured on the front cover of the latest Wow magazine. The after party followed immediately at the upscale West Quarter Lounge.
