The Fake Prophet

The Fake Prophet

Udofia played by Charles Okafor is involved in a human trafficking racket run by Honourable Igbinosa (Big Fred Ezimmadu). Between Udofia and Igbinosa they ship off young naïve Nigerian girls to Europe supposedly for legitimate jobs which in reality are prostitution. When Udofia is almost caught with trafficked girls by police during a routine stop he flees to his village in Akwa Ibom State to escape Igbinosa’s wrath. With no money, education or discernible talent he turns to a new career as a preacher and soon enough after performing miracles with hired actors he is respected in the community as “an anointed man of god.” He declares certain children witches and takes huge sums of money from their parents in order to deliver them from witchcraft. Of course he is unable to do so and so declares such children as beyond being delivered. Udofia is soon responsible for several deaths of children and exile of others in the community, notably Ekaette (Grace Amah) and Inyang (Samuel Ajibola) who have been accused of being Witch and Wizard after Ekaette’s father’s death.

Two Brides And A Baby

Just the other day I tweeted “Where did Blessing Effiom go?” I liked her in Before and After the Vow and thought it was weird the way she just disappeared from the Nollywood scene, and then lo and behold I come across this trailer on YouTube showing behind the scenes footage of an upcoming Nollywood movie written and produced by Blessing Effiom. This movie is directed by the legendary Teco Benson. Starring in the movie is Kalu Ikeagwu, OC Ujeke of White Waters fame (yaay), Chelsea Eze from Silent Scandal, Stella Damasus Aboderin (We have missed you oo), some others I haven’t seen before Keira Hewatch, Okey Uzoechi (Fine boy no pimples) and Kehinde Bankole. The film is scheduled to be released both in The United States and Nigeria in the third quarter of this year.
