Amaka is young, single and stressed out.
A London-based investment banker, she is living her best life and navigating the constant pressure from her parents about getting married when life happens.
Her company is downsising and to keep her job and renew her work permit, Amaka must fly down to Nigeria and close a huge deal all within 30 days.
And so unfolds Kpali, the quirky, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy from the Emem Ema-led Vzhun Films, a wave making Production Company.
Directed by Ladi Johnson and starring Nollywood heavyweights and playmakers like stunning and delectable Ini Dima-Okojie in the lead role as Amaka, Nkem “Osuofia” Owoh, Gloria Anozie-Young, Linda Ejiofo-Suleiman, Kunle Remi, as well as Uzor Arukwe, Abounce, Ik Osakioduwa, Ade Adefeko, corporate mandarin in a cameo role and comedian Seyi Law Kpali takes us from London to Lagos with large dollops of laughter.
Set to hit the cinemas on December 20, 2019, Kpali is a movie that will resonate with young and highly mobile Nigerians who schooled abroad, work abroad or are home for Christmas and even regular millennials trying to fend off their parents’ constant harangue – my dear, when are you getting married?
Executive Producer, Abhulime Ehiagwina, who is making his Nollywood debut with Kpali is pleased with the outcome of the movie with a story which he believes will further enrich the conversation about Nigerian immigrants in search of greener pastures.
For Producer Emem Ema, whose foray into the entertainment circuit began as a member of girl, band, Kush, “it was really exciting to see first-hand the deep connection between the actors and their roles on this project. It was a pretty intense production and we can’t wait to bring this remarkable experience to movie fans across Nigeria this December.’
Kpali hits the cinemas on Friday, December 20, 2019.
