AFTER months of rigorous and tasking studio and post-studio works, Ini Edo has hit the cinema with another blockbuster movie, While You slept. Recall that two years ago, Emem and Ini jointly produced a dance movie, I will take my Chances, starring Ini Edo, late Sam Loco Efe, Bryan Okwara, Ashleigh Clark, Ini Ekpe, Biola Williams, and Jide Kosoko.
The new film, directed by Desmond Elliot, is an emotional film which talks about love and deceit. It revolves around a young girl,(Ini Edo) who got married to a rich young man without knowing that the man is married to someone else with a kid.
The man who loves Amaka (Ine) so much that he did not want to hurt her feelings by telling her the truth about his marital statues, got married to another man all in the quest for having a child.
Amaka’s life is turned upside down when Najite, a mysterious stranger shows up claiming to be the secret wife of Emeka Amaka’s late husband. Speaking on the challenges she faced while producing the film, during the premiere at the Silverbird Cinemas last week, Ini said, “I had good hands in the movie, I was a pleasure working with the likes of Emen Isong and Desmond Elliot in the movie.
They came together and we rubbed mind together. The movie is very peculiar for me because when you love someone and you trust that person don’t give up on what you love. We need to work for late hours to get it done.” The movie has casts like, Emen Isong, Ini Edo, Desmond Elliot, Joseph Benjamin, Venita Akpofure and Bobby Micheals.
