One of the most anticipated Nollywood films of 2019, ‘4th Republic’ premiered on Sunday, April 7, 2019 at IMAX, Filmhouse Cinemas, Lekki Lagos. The premiere played out the election theme with PVCs, ballot boxes and election staff as ushers. And with a dress code themed ‘Your Excellency,’ stars and guests explored the inauguration themed dress code in full force.
Members of the cast and crew; Kate Henshaw, Enyinna Nwigwe, Linda Ejiofor-Suleiman, Sani Muazu, Enyinna Nwigwe, Kemi ‘Lala’ Akindoju, Bimbo Manuel, Yakubu Mohammed, were joined by star guests Sola Sobowale, Waje, Tope Oshin, Chigul, Omojuwa, Kehinde Bankole, Linda Osifo, Lilian Afegbai, Denrele Edun and many more, at the Sunday night premiere.
Directed by Ishaya Bako, ‘4th Republic’ is woven around a rigged election, violence and an intense election tribunal to claim the seat of governor from a corrupt incumbent.
“The feedback has truly surpassed our expectations,” director Ishaya Bako explained. “I am very grateful to everyone for their turnout at the premiere. We can’t wait for everyone to finally see our movie on April 12,” he added.
The plot of the movie mimics Nigeria’s current political situation; a presidential election marred by allegations of rigging, pockets of violence across the country and an aggrieved presidential candidate in court for his mandate.
