In an interview with BroadwayTV at the press screening of her comeback movie ‘Alter Ego’, leading Nollywood actress, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde has something to say about the amount of comedy movies Nollywood has been churning out lately.
In recent times, comedy movies have gone on to break box office record; movies like Alakada Reloaded, The Wedding Party, A Trip to Jamaica, 10 Days in Sun city and a host of others are smashing box office. However, the A-list actress feels Nigerians are bigger than just comedy movies and ‘Alter Ego’ is here to prove that to be true.
“Alter Ego” is the story of successful law attorney, the beautiful Ada Igwe (Omotola Jalade Ekeinde), who has focused a substantial part of her law practice on seeing all sex offenders in the city, especially child molesters, go to jail. Her penchant for punishment against sex offenders even goes beyond the four walls of the courtroom. Whenever she cannot get the Judges to imprison an offender, she finds other ways to punish him. She is a passionate law enforcement agent but that is just one side of her. The other Ada happens to be an extremely sexually active person who neither time nor place can stop her urges when they come to her.
The movie’s July 7th premiere will be a concert-like event and have all the trappings of a world class movie premiere and a memorable after-party at same venue.
Alter Ego which is produced by Sidomex Universal in conjunction with Sneeze Films and directed by Moses Ewang stars, Omotola Jalade- Ekeinde, Wale Ojo, Kunle Remi, Bobby Obodo, Jide Kosoko, Sexy Steel, Gregory Ojefua and others.
