The much awaited Amstel Malta Box Office (AMBO 5) Blockbuster movie shot on location in Lagos has finally been premiered.
Ivie Okujaye, the winner of the last edition of the Amstel Malta Box Office reality TV show and music star Faze were the lead characters in the blockbuster movie.
Titled “Alero’s Symphony” the movie was premiered at the prestigious Genesis Deluxe Cinemas of The Palms Shopping Mall in Lagos. The movie is set in contemporary Lagos and combines a dramatic love story intertwined with the pulsating beats of the Nigerian hip-hop genre.
Alero, the twin daughter of an affluent family, is a top law student who is expected to graduate with honors and thereafter join her father’s prestigious law chambers. However her passion and heart is really set on being a singer, a desire she carefully hides from her parents.
During an Easter vacation break, Alero comes across a lowly waiter/fisherman named Lovechild who also happens to be a talented musician. Though from different sides of the divide in terms of class, education and social status, Alero and Lovechild found their common love for singing – a bond that bound them professionally at first and then romantically.
She finally confessed to her father that, she has strong desires to pursue a career as a singer rather than as a lawyer. An indignant Dr. Coker gave his daughter an ultimatum; dump Lovechild, her music ambition and focus on her legal career or risk his wrath. She decided, albeit reluctantly and for the sake of peace, to follow her father’s orders. But, can Alero succeed in forsaking the cravings of her heart?
Speaking at the event, the Marketing Director, Nigerian Breweries; Jacco Van Der Linden said the movie is a must watch and is testimonial to the horde of talents there are in the country.
