Mo Abudu’s newly premiered movie, ‘Fifty’

Mo Abudu

Mo-Abudu_Style-MANIALate bloomer Mo Abudu rules the Nigerian blogosphere this week, along with stars of her newly premiered movie, Fifty: Ireti Doyle, Dakore Egbuson-Akande, Omoni Oboli and Nse Ikpe-Etim. Fifty is directed by Biyi Bandele with Mo Abudu the executive producer.

Fifty had its London Film Festival premiere at the weekend, and critics say the production is Mo Abudu’s quest to showcase African women coming of age, vis   a vis aspirations and dilemmas faced by their contemporaries everywhere, while yet navigating traditions and obligations.

Set in Lagos, “ a city of disproportionate and breathtaking contrasts”, Fifty celebrates the pulse and energy of this fast developing metropolis and explores the diversities and complexities of its colourful people through the lenses of its women.
