Described as the best action movie ever produced in Nollywood Eric Aghimien’s ‘Slow Country” will premiere on Monday, 1st May, 2017.
The grand premiere will be holding at the Genesis Cinema, Lekki by 4pm and personalities from different walks of life have confirmed that they will be in attendance.
‘Slow Country’ is the latest from Eric Aghimien whose 2014 debut movie ‘A mile from home’ won at both the AMVCA and the AMA awards.
The movie has attracted much commendation since the release of the trailer will be in cinemas across Nigeria from May 19 which is a change of date from the earlier publicized date.
Set in Nigeria, Slow Country follows the story of Kome, a homeless teenage mother, who in a bid to cater and secure a good life for her son Peter sought refuge in the arms of a drug kingpin Tuvi. The kingpin ushers her into the world of prostitution and drug trafficking. However, when faced with a serious dilemma and the sudden return of her ex-boyfriend Osas who desperately wants to win her heart, having abandoned her for 7 years, she gets fed up and attempts to break free. She pleads with her boss to let her quit the underworld but he is not ready to let go of his most trusted cash cow.
The action movie stars amazing and talented actors like: Ivie Okujaiye-Egboh who played the role of Kome, Samasa Nzeribe who played Tuvi, the drug kingpin, Tope Tedela as Osas, and Majid Michel as Inspector Dave. Others are Richard Brutus as Brasko, Gina Castel as Ola, Adebayo Thomas as Peter, Victor Eriabie, Imoudu ‘DJ Moe’ Ayonete, and Shola Thompson-Adewale.
Speaking about the premiere, the producer and director, Eric Aghimien stated “The movie premiere will be great. We have put a lot of effort into planning and organising a grand premiere and all those attending will have the best time. They will also enjoy the movie which is a proof that Nollywood can make standard action movies”
