Filmmaker Obi Emelonye on Tuesday held the private screening of his new movie Money Miss Road.
The exclusive event was held at the Blue Pictures Cinema Onikan, Lagos, and had in attendance some of the cast including Jidekene Achufusi aka Swanky JKA and Charly Boy Oputa.
The producer Joy Odiete, CEO of Blue Pictures, as well as film executives and investors, were also present at the screening.
Speaking on the message behind the story, Joy Odiete said, “We see people running into money that they never thought that they could ever have, there are consequences.”
Obi who doubles as the writer added that the story is inspired by the ‘get rich quick’ trend that is fast becoming a lifestyle for many young people.
Directed by Obi Emelonye, the action comedy is set to hit cinemas this Friday, July 22. The Blue Pictures Entertainment, Codeo Limited and The Nollywood Factory collaboration, follows two down-on-their-luck friends, Josiah and Joseph.
When Josiah’s wife Lucy arrives without notice and with their three daughters, Joseph checks into a local hotel. But, a mix-up lands him in a room belonging to Diokpa, a local criminal Lord. What Joseph finds in Diokpa’s room changes his life and that of his friend Josiah, thus sparking a game of cat and mouse.
