Since EbonyLife launched back in 2013, they’ve churned out some of the biggest films Nollywood has ever seen. Following the success of their latest star-studded film, Chief Daddy, we’ve now learnt more about their next effort, Oloture, and we’re understandably hyped.
The film follows the story of a young journalist, Oloture (Sharon Ooja), who goes undercover to expose the shady underworld of human trafficking. New to this brutal environment, she finds warmth in the relationships she forms with the prostitutes she takes up residence with.
EbonyLife usually doles out romantic comedies — from the game-changing Fifty to the record-shattering The Wedding Party — and given how successful those have been, we’re surprised that they’re trying out a new formula with such a dark and gritty drama.
Speaking about this, Mo Abudu, the CEO of EbonyLife, said
“Oloture explores a world very few people know anything about and had to be dealt with in a particular way. It’s not a documentary, but it addresses real issues most of our society doesn’t see.
Harnessing the talents of some of the country’s top actors and filmmakers to produce a film that is both intelligent and profound – and breaks bold new genre and stylistic ground for Nollywood.”
Oloture also stars Segun Arinze, Omawumi, Lala Akindoju, Omoni Oboli and Blossom Chukwujekwu. While no release date has been announced yet, we’re expecting a trailer soon and are super excited. Hopefully, we won’t have to wait until Christmas time before the film is released.
