Nollywood actor and producer, Omoni Oboli, has begun works on her fourth production as a producer and director. The new work ‘Okafor’s Law’ is coming on the heels of the success of ‘Wives on strike’ which became the third most successful Nollywood movie ever in cinema.
‘Okafor’s’ Law is a comedy about a married woman who ran into her past love and has to contend with the legendary Okafor’s Law to save herself and her marriage.
Okafor’s Law is a law which states that if a man sleeps with a woman once, he can always bed the woman again irrespective of new developments like marriage, new lover or break-up.
With Okafor’s Law, Omoni is raising the bar and stepping up several inches from where she left off with her past movies. Apart from high quality crew led by notable director of photography, Yinka Edward and set designer, Pat Nebo, the movie also boasts of actors and actresses of note.
The cast of the movie are Richard Mofe Damijo, Blossom Chukwujekwu, Ufuoma McDermott, Tina Mba, Toyin Aimakhu, Lala Akindoju, Yvonne Jegede, Halima Abubakar, Mary Lazarus, Uche Nnaji, Betty Irabor, Gabriel Afolayan, Ken Erics, and Omoni herself. With Okafor’s Law, expectations are high as to how far Omoni and her team can go on this.
Gabriel Afolayan, a member of the cast rates the work as a “high level standard.”
“This is one of those set that you would be on and you are glad that you are working. You get to experience a thorough filmmaking process, the breakdown of scenes and shots and the feel of intense lightening. Those are the very important things that most of the filmmakers don’t even get to do sometimes and having Yinka Edward on set, it couldn’t have been any better, with standard equipment, standard crew in terms of numbers.”
He also rates Omoni’s directing skills as being special. “She is special, very special. She knows everything she’s looking for and that’s one thing some directors don’t know about. She works in line with the vision of what she’s doing. I’m very impressed with her skills and these skills will take her places, trust me.”
