Somkele Iyamah-Idhalama, Nollywood actress, has said that she can relate to being kidnapped although, she has never been held to ransom and kidnapped.


The 93 Days actress said this while describing her role in Ojukokoro (Greed), a movie written and directed by Dare Olaitan.

“I have never been held to ransom and kidnapped so to speak but I have been in a situation where my loved one was so I could relate. Being dragged on the floor was not fun at all (laughs) but we got through it,” said Iyamah-Idhalama, who played Sade in the movie.

“It was fun working with an ensemble of amazingly talented actors. Ojukokoro has all the elements of a film that will hold your attention for the right reasons so definitely go and see it.”


The movie, which will premiere on March 9 and be available for public viewing from March 17, boasts of actors like Wale Ojo, Ali Nuhu, Tope Tedela, Somkele Idalama, Linda Ejiofor, Zainab Balogun and Hafiz Oyetoro (Saka).

The movie is woven around a money-strapped manager of a shady fuel station who decides to rob his employers but along the line finds out that he is not alone in his ambition.

“The story is like no other. The movie provides you with great humour, thrill and suspense all in one. Trust me when I say that Ojukokoro will have you sitting tight and locked in your seats,” said Zainab Balogun, who played Bose in the movie.


“Ojukokoro pushes the bar for Nollywood. The movie is great visually and content wise.”

The movie was created by Singularity media in collaboration with House Gabriel studios and BCI studios.
