Set for release on Friday, December 8 across Nigeria, Nigerian singer and songwriter Chidinma Ekile scores a landmark first feature in movie ‘The Bridge’ to launch her acting career and display her acting prowess.
Chidinma stars in the cross cultural romantic movie alongside a galaxy of veteran and contemporary stars such as Demola Adedoyin, Binta Ayo Mogaji, Zack Orji, Tina Mba, Adebayo Salami, Lere Paimo, Wole Olowomojuore, Lanre Hassan, Jimoh Aliu, and Mama Ray-Eyiwumi.
The much anticipated movie brings director Kunle Afolayan, Muka Ray and Bank of Industry’s Nollyfund to the spotlight again, in an effort planned to blow the minds of movie lovers this yuletide season.
Produced by Lasun Ray and directed by Kunle Afolayan, the movie tells the story of Stella (Chidinma Ekile), a young lady from a distinguished Igbo family who falls in love and secretly marries Obadare (Demola Adedoyin), a Yoruba Prince against her parent’s wish.
Their relationship is threatened by tribal prejudices and the consequences shake the very foundation and unity of both families.
Silverbird Distributions announces the cinema release and a star-studded premiere billed for Saturday, December 9, 2017.
The film distribution company, in a statement, describes ‘The Bridge’ as a culturally conscious film with an equal touch of modernism, and pristine standard.
