Comic-actress, Chioma Omeruah, a.k.a Chigul, will star in upcoming comedy film ‘Banana Island Ghost (B.I.G)’.
B.I.G is a slapstick movie about a ghost that is scared to go to heaven because he doesn’t have a soulmate, so he convinces God to give him three days to fall in love.
He is paired with the cantankerous firecracker – Ijeoma, played by Chigul – who will do anything to save her father’s house in Banana Island from the bank coming to reclaim it in three days.
Banana Island Ghost also stars Ali Nuhu, Bimbo Manuel, Damilola Adegbite, Dorcas Fapson, Patrick Diabuah, Saheed Balogun, Tomiwa Edun, and Uche Jombo.
The movie is the first of five films in a co-production partnership between Biola Alabi Media (BAM) and Nemsia Films.
Biola Alabi, CEO of Biola Alabi Media, said, “This partnership with Nemsia Films – headed by BB Sasore and Derin Adeyokunnu – is part of our mission to work with great talents to tell great African stories for a local and global audience.
“The Nemsia team brings a fresh perspective and energy to the Nollywood landscape, Nemsia Films is the company behind the production of ‘Before 30’, the most watched African show.”
B.I.G is scheduled for release in the summer of 2017.
“Embarking on feature film projects has always been on our agenda, and when the opportunity with Mrs. Biola Alabi came up, we were certain it was the right step to take,” said BB Sasore, Writer/Director.
“The Team at Biola Alabi Media (BAM) headed by the media icon Biola Alabi bring a wealth of knowledge, creativity and experience in creating great content that a global audience will enjoy and will propel Nollywood to greater heights”
