Leading Nollywood stars such as Alex Ekubo, Nancy Isime, Stephnora Okere, Zack Orji, Nosa Rex, Jibola Dabo and several others recently regrouped and dazzled fans and movie buffs in a new film titled: Drink.
The star-studded flick, which was produced and painstakingly directed by cerebral Nigerian filmmaker, Victor Okere, is sensationally set to premiere amid glitz, glamour and grandeur on Sunday, December 3, 2023, at the upscale Blue Pictures Cinemas, City Mall, Onikan, Lagos.
Amazingly, the anticipated evening gathering is expected to be graced by heavyweights from Nollywood, as well as other VIPs from different walks of life.
In a chat with us, soft-spoken Okere, who shuttles between US and Nigeria, disclosed that Drink, is the engaging, captivating and fascinating story of a young and very successful newly married man, who had his life suddenly turned upside down, when his body turned against him.
Shedding more light on the synopsis of the big budget film, which was shot on locations within and outside Lagos and its environs, elated Okere hinted further: “Olumide, which was professionally played by ladies man, Alex Ekubo and Anuli Roberts, exceptionally interpreted by sexy Nancy Isime, are newly married and just back from their honeymoon when Olumide begins to have frequent incidents of drunkenness. Anuli is hurt and disappointed. Theirs had been a whirlwind romance and barely months into their relationship despite warnings from family and friends, which they dismissed as discriminatory and baseless, they had gotten married. Now she feels that she is married to a stranger and has mixed feelings about their marriage, thus begins the real conflict in their turbulent union.”
Okered added: “As a meticulous and passionate filmmaker, the research work on this movie project spanned several years alongside many trips within and outside our shores. When finally out, Drink, will definitely redefine and reshape the ways we tell our stories and make quality movies in Nollywood. It’s my latest contribution to the growth and global expansion of our dear Nollywood.”
