The best of veteran Nollywood and new Nollywood working together on one project, we're almost cross eyed with expectations as to how this picture will turn out!
Kunle Afolayan's upcoming movie, Omugwo, has a trailer that has the oh-so-amazing Patience Ozokwor and it followws the story of Omotunde and Raymond after the birth of their first baby. complicated by their different backgrounds, their mothers-in-law forcefully move in with the couple to perform the Igbo child care rite called, Omugwo. But instead of relieving their children of the burden of childcare, the mothers’ rivalry ends up complicating life for the young couple.
We are also really curious to see how Kunle Afolayan directs his first full-on comedy – the closest he has ever been to this genre was ‘Phone Swap’. We suspect that this movie will do very well riding from the back of Nigerian’ (or Africa’s) love for comedy which was evident in how well “Wedding Party” and “30 Days In Atlanta” did in the box office.
Omugwo will hit cinemas nationwide on April 7.
