Actresses Oge Okoye, Adaora Ukoh and award winning director Emem Isong were over the weekend among top Nollywood personalities who joined Nigeria’s media for the screening of Yvonne Okoro’s Contract movie.
The award winning movie, which was directed by Shirley Frimpong Manso, has already bagged six nominations for the upcoming Africa Movie Academy Awards next month after breaking premiering records in Ghana.
It is currently waiting to enter Nollywood cinemas from March 22, when it will start showing at Silverbird Cinemas across Nigeria.
On Friday March 15, the movie was screened for Nigeria’s media, a week ahead of the cinema release.
The event attracted quite a number of Nollywood media. Interestingly influential Nollywood figures Oge Okoye, Emem Isong and Adaora Ukoh did not only come to support Yvonne Okoro, but also welcome Contract into Nollywood.
Yvonne was accompanied by her two sisters, Elizabeth and Roseline who also brought some sexiness to the atmosphere at the event.
Also present at the ceremony was producer Ken Attoh, who is the husband of award winning director, Shirley Frimpong Manso.
‘Contract’ tells the story of a successful businessman, Peter Poplampo, the ultimate alpha male. He is 40 years old, rich, and a staunch bachelor. Despite his mother’s persistent attempts to find him a woman, Peter sticks to his rule of non-committal casual dates, freedom and being in control of his life until a yearning to have a child arises.
In his quest to find the woman who will take his money, have his child and disappear, Peter begins a roller coaster contracted relationship with Abena Boateng, a crude but clever local girl who is anything but impressed with Peter’s affluence.
With a clear definitive contract from his lawyer outlining the dos and don’ts of bearing Peter Poplampo’s child, these two opposites must exercise every ounce of will power not to kill each other until the child is born.
It is an unsuspecting romantic comedy with unusual twists that expose the flaws in being in control of your life. The movie is funny; it’s sexy with bizarre twists that will keep you guessing till the very end.
