The Senate has asked the Federal Government to stop plans to raise a 309 billion naira bond expected to finance electricity generation in the country and erase recorded shortfall in projected power availability.
Nollywood actor Gabriel Afolayan, who starred in Omoni Oboli’s latest project, Okafor’s Law has described the movie as a very high standard film.
“This is one of those sets that you would be on and you are glad that you are working. You get to experience a thorough filmmaking process, the breakdown of scenes and shots and the feel of intense lightening. Those are the very important things that most of the filmmakers don’t even get to do sometimes.
Incidentally, expectations are high for the movie, which apart from Omoni Oboli’s acclaimed successes in recent times marks the return of notable Director of Photography (DOP) Yinka Edwards, who was away for further studies abroad. “Having Yinka Edward on set, it couldn’t have been any better, with standard equipment, standard crew in terms of numbers,” Afolayan said further.
He also rated Omoni’s directing skills as being special. “She is special, very special. She knows everything she’s looking for and that’s one thing some Directors don’t know about. She works in line with the vision of what she’s doing. I’m very impressed with her skills and these skills will take her places trust me.”
This is Oboli’s fourth production ever since the actress veered into filmmaking. The new work is coming on the heels of Wives on Strike which is touted as the third most successful Nollywood movie in Cinema ever.
