Teco Benson’s Blood In The Lagoon Movie: Omotola Jalade Gets 1st Film Role In 2014
Nollywood diva and reality TV show host Omotola Jalade has returned to Nollywood after over 3 years of absence.
Omosexy is set to thrill Nollywood movie fans in Teco Benson’s upcoming Blood in the Lagoon film.
This is Omotola’s 1st movie role since she was named among TIME magazine’s 100 world’s most influential people.
The new film, which has already been named one of the films to watch out for in 2014 by Nollywood Reinvented, is an emotionally charged and thought-provoking movie that is expected to keep viewers glued to their seat till the very end.
Set against the backdrop of dichotomies surrounding the Lagos lifestyle, the film centres around George Dibiya (Okey Uzoeshi), born into abject poverty and thrust deep into the drudgery fate has dealt him.
Just like thousands in the many slums of Nigeria, George’s life story is already written and sealed by fate, even before he came into the world. He ekes out a living in the treacherous murky waters of the waste deluged Lagos lagoon. And this is not of his making.
The chances of getting any education and, maybe clawing his way out of the situation are zero. But after the murder of his brother, George sets out not to allow his brother’s dream die. Along the way, he gets entangled with the stunningly beautiful Scarlet (Omotola).
Blood in the Lagoon also features other notable actors including Eddie Ugboma, Akin Lewis and Ufuoma Ejenebor.
