‘Last Man Standing’, the biopic on President Bola Tinubu, is scheduled to premiere in Lagos on June 12.
In a statement on Saturday, Seun Oloketuyi, the executive producer of the Best of Nollywood (BON) Awards, said the development followed after the successful premiere of the movie in Abuja.
Oloketuyi said Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of Lagos, will host the movie premiere in the state alongside selected number of businessmen and politicians.
The movie premiered in Abuja on May 26.
At the event, Barau Jibrin, chairman of senate committee on appropriation, said Nigerians should be grateful to the producers for their efforts to document history for the youth.
Jibrin said doing this would motivate and inspire a lot of politicians and young people.
‘Last Man Standing’ was directed by Tunde Olaoye.
The project features several movie stars including Lateef Adedimeji, Gbenga Adeyinka, Jide Kosoko, Madam Kofo, Shushu Abubakar, Segun Arinze, and Sam Olatunji.
Adedimeji, who acted in the role of the president, had previously disclosed that he was scared to play the movie role.
“Asiwaju is not a mere politician, he is a stakeholder, a man with a lot going on around him, lots of controversies happening at the same time,” he had said.
“This is somebody that is alive. Someone that can sit and watch you play him, and if you don’t get it right he will say so eventually. It was a lot of work.”
