Atlanta native and leading actor on Starz’s highly acclaim show “POWER” Omari Hardwick was in Atlanta to host a star-studded screening of the first episode of season 2.
If you are a fan of “POWER”. Let me tell you season 2 is going to be epic. Omari came home to greet his fans, spend time with his family, and most importantly celebrate being one of the biggest bosses on the small screen.
Check out the details below.
Atlanta came out to support one of it’s own actor Omari Hardwick as he hosted a private screening of Starz’s hot show “Power“. The show is almost movie like with the drama, sex, and action; many compare the show to “Empire” but the two are dramatically different and unique in their own rights. I had the privilege of working the red carpet with some of Atlanta’s biggest celebrities and checking out season 2 of “Power”.
“Power” has a cult-like following and is an instant classic. Fans across the city and celebrities alike made their way to Regal Cineama to check out the show. In the house was the lovely Tichina Arnold (Martin, Everybody Hates Chris), celebrity stylist Derek J (Real Housewives of Atlanta), reality tv star/salon owner Mushiya (Cutting it in the Atl), actor Brad James (For Better or Worse), actor RonReaco Lee (Sister Sister, Survivor’s Remorse), reality star Mariah Hug (Married to Medicine), reality star Monyetta Shaw Christina Johnson (Atlanta Exes) and more.
After the screening we were privileged to attend a Q&A with AJC’s Rodney Ho and Omari Hardwick. He shared that he will be watching the first episode with legend Muhammed Ali who’s a huge fan of the series. Omari shared that his parents gave him the opportunity to be himself and pursue his dreams of poetry and acting. Omari thanked his fans for the support.
