Chigul’s hilarious prayer for ‘sumtin BIG’ that went viral online, is the first plot to something big coming soon to cinemas.
The scene is from an upcoming film titled Banana Island Ghost (B.I.G), written and directed by BB Sasore. The movie trailer was unveiled at the iMax Cinemas in Lekki, Lagos.
Speaking at a recently held press conference in Lagos, Biola Alabi, Executive Producer of the movie said, “Banana Island Ghost is unprecedented in many regards, and we believe that this trailer will excite viewers, across Nigeria and beyond, to look forward to a rib cracking experience when the movie hits the cinema screens in August.”
In the trailer, the cantankerous firecracker, Ijeoma (Chioma Omeruah) wakes up to find a Ghost (Patrick Diabuah) next to her.
He has 3 days to fall in love and she will do anything to save her father’s house in Banana Island from the bank coming to reclaim it in 3 days.
The film is expected to be in theatres on August 4, 2017.
The movie also features international Superstar Tomiwa Edun, and several Nollywood heavyweights including Uche Jombo, Saheed Balogun, Ali Nuhu, Bimbo Manuel, Damilola Adegbite, Lala Akindoju and Dorcas Fapson.
Chioma "Chigul" Omeruah takes on her first leading role, playing the boisterous Ijeoma, a down-on-her-luck woman with a big heart.
Ijeoma is a 30 something year old woman, looking for any way to save her late father's house from repossession by the bank.
She does several odd jobs daily including driving a taxi, doing street promotion and even petty theft to raise the 18 million Naira she needs but her efforts seem to be in vain.
With three days left to find N18m, she turns to God for a solution to her problem.
Her prayers are answered in the form of Patrick, the Ghost!
Together, they get into all kinds of hilarious situations but in the process help each other find purpose and love.
Peep the hilarious trailer below.
