Having established herself as one of the very few females to have a block buster movie with ‘Being Mrs Eliot’, actress, producer and director, Omoni Oboli is set to return to the cinema with another potential block buster movie, ‘The First Lady’.
The First Lady is a comic drama with compelling storylines backed with impressive acting. It stars Alex Ekubo, Jospeh Benjamin, Yvonne Jegede, Chinedu Ikedieze, Anthony Monjaro and Omoni Oboli.The story which was written by Omoni was also directed by the Delta Born French graduate.
Steve Shodiya, Nigeria celebrated movie editor, revealed that sometimes, he uses Omoni’s scenes to clean up other actors’ shortcomings. “As far as I’m concerned, Omoni Oboli is the best for the roles she played in “Render to Caesar”, “Anchor Baby” and “Figurine.” No other actress could have interpreted those roles the way she did. Most of them are stereotyped but she is versatile”, he stated. Also, in his own assessment, Desmond Ovbiagele said, Omoni Oboli is highly professional on set.
“Nigerians should expect another thrilling, entertaining yet informative movie in ‘The First Lady’ and a different version of Omoni’ she said.
