Nollywood star actress, Laide Bakare, is already putting finishing touches to her multi-million naira movie tagged ‘Jejere’ (Tumor) which is set to hit town any moment from now.
The movie, first of its kind in the Yoruba film sector in Nigeria, parades the best hands in the industry, including uncommon faces from the English sector.
Already on the final leg of the shooting in the ancient city of Oshogbo, the movie is a superhero special that mirrors various problems plaguing the society. It deals exclusively with the girl-child value and lack of interest in the importance of female children in most Nigerian families.
‘Jejere’ tells the story of a woman who has eight female children but whose husband, against her obvious fast deteriorating health, insists she must give him a male child or be ready to forfeit her marriage.
The end is as touching and communicative based on aged African traditions. The movie which next and final shooting would be in Lagos this week, also deals with the insecurity issue affecting the nation, corruption, mass unemployment, robbery and kidnapping and menace of bad leadership, while it proffers the way forward.
Gongo Aso crooner, 9ice, plays the lead role in the movie that took two years to achieve novelty. Other star actors and actresses featuring are, Emeka Ike, Fathia Balogun, Akin Lewis, Obi Alex-O, Segun Ogungbe, Ebun Oloyede, and other notable artistes.
The movie, on its release by Sim Line International (formerly Front Row Productions) owned by the pretty actress, will be shown at cinemas before producing it into VCDs and DVDs for home use later.
