‘Aiye’ crooner, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, his cousin, Ikechukwu Ojeogwu Francis and other top Nollywood stars are warming up to hit a movie location soon for the shoot of an action-packed movie entitled, ‘John Zerebe’.
To be directed by Teco Benson, Ikechukwu, a graduate of Banking and Finance from Babcock University hinted that the flick will be shot in Lagos and Osun State, starting from next month. He said: “I have always wanted to be involved in Nollywood.
As you know, entertainment runs in our family. I choose to go into movie production instead of going into music like my cousin, Davido. My mother is from Osun State, while my father is a Deltan. Although, I have featured in a TV programme called, ‘Bella’s Place,’ I am fully going into Nollywood with this movie. I know it will go places.”
Ikechukwu added that the movie filled with suspense, intrigues, twists and drama is the story of a smart boy who from childhood was bent on living big. He got involved in all sorts of illicit activities from secondary school which culminated to an unexpected end.
The budding actor who has the likes of Mel Gibson, Will Smith, Omotola Ekeinde and Genevieve as role models also put the total budget of the movie at N10 million.
