BREAKING NEWS! ''SOMETHING WICKED'' WILL HIT US IN 2017...

There is always something new every now and then in Nollywood and a lot of young people are beginning to embrace the reality of producing great films that can compete at the global stage and talented actor, Okey Uzoeshi has taken that bold step but am sorry to say, it is ''Something Wicked''...How wicked is this something, who creates this wickedness and what is this something...? Well, 2017 is not too far and am sure we are in for a great time. Now, I am really looking forward to this ''Something'' for one major reason-the cast...If you have seen Ireti Doyle in ''Torn'' and Adesuwa Etomi in ''Falling or Knocking on Heaven's Door'', then, you are in for a ride of a life time...Other great talents in this film include Gabriel Afolayan, Ivie Okujaie-Egboh, Beverly Naya, Keira Hewatch, Omowunmi Dada, Bisola Aiyeola and Okey Uzoeshi himself...

''Something Wicked'' is the story of a widow whose recently orphaned nephew moves into her home from the violence riddled Northern Nigeria, after the murder of his parents. This particular nephew had a difficult time fitting into his new family whist the widow struggled with the challenges of balancing a failing business and single parenthood. This family's bond is tested when they are thrown in a life threatening situation. We would see how misunderstandings lead to misconceptions and premonitions are sometimes the only warning we get in this game of life and death...In the opening of the thriller, a few comments were made regarding the preview that might have been seen but I will simply state that this drama film is simply thrilling, engaging and thought-provoking.
This project is produced by JAF Alliance and creatively brought to life under the directive of Yemi Morafa, who has to his credit, ''The Spotlight'' and ''2nd Coming''. This project is due for release in the first quarter of 2017.
