•‘It’s my dream to become a producer’
Rising actress, Bimbo Peters who debuted in Nollywood last year after she relocated back home from the UK, has already recorded a landmark in the industry.
The light-complexioned actress made it clear while joining the industry that her dream is to become a top producer in no distant time. She has gone ahead to achieve that dream as she premieres her movie, “One Fine Day,” tomorrow, at the Silverbird Cinemas, Victoria Island, Lagos.
Bimbo said, the star-studded flick, starring the likes of Olu Jacobs and his wife, Joke Silver, Funke Akindele, Fredrick Leonard among other stars was directed by Hon. Desmond Elliot.
Ït’s my dream to become a producer. I went for the best because I wanted to make a statement that I have arrived,”she said.
Narrating how she came about the story, the rising actress who has featured in a couple of Nollywood movies including, “The Good Wife”, “Jenifa Diary” and “Code of Silence” said, she approached notable film maker, Emem Isong to write a screenplay about two rival sisters for her. “This is because I wanted to produce a film that will announce my presence in the nation’s movie industry.”
One Fine Day, she said, is a gripping drama about two sister, Tasha and Nina who experience more than your average share of sibling rivalry which is worsened by Nina’s slightly disturbed state of mind.
Bimbo attended New York Film Academy, where she studied Acting and Producing for one and half year before returning to the country last year.
