Nollywood’s latest movie on same-sex marriage, ‘Busted’ which was screened to selected guests at Oriental Hotel, Lagos,last May, is due to hit the cinemas across the country on the 19th of January, 2018.
The two sisters who produced the movie, Lisa and Face Onu said ‘Busted’ is sending a strong message to parents and guidances to pay serious attention to their wards and always caution them against the evil of homosexuality.
Recall that on shooting the movie, the producers were attacked for daring to produce the expository movie.
In a chat with HVP then, Face Onu said, since they shot the movie, they have been receiving a lot of backlash from people for daring to venture into the den of lions. According to her, the movie which starred the likes of Liz Benson, Kate Henshaw, IK Ogbonna, Paul Obazele amongst other Nollywood greats is not one that is out to promote lesbianism or gay. Rather, “The movie is sending a strong message to parents to pay attention to their wards.” Face said, in as much as they tried to be careful not to ignite negative responses, the story remains one that many movie producers avoid to explore in their movies. “Busted” will bring to the fore the evil associated with the practice of same-sex-marriage which alien to African society,” she said. The gripping movie reveals the intrigues of a gay couple’s love story. It tells the story of Queen Edwards, a girl born into a decent home where her father’s strict nature as well as her mother’s ignorance led her into the arms of a maid who lured her into lesbianism.
