The release of Niyi Akinmolayan’s latest movie, ‘Prophetess’, will soon be launched as Toyin Abraham releases movie teaser.
The movie will premiere in cinemas on March 26, 2021. Although, the teaser was debuted by Toyin Abraham on Wednesday, 13th of January through her Instagram account.
The upcoming movie features actors like Kehinde Bankole, Kunle Remi, Ronke Ojo, Tina Mba, Stan Nze, Uzor Arukwe, Deyemi Okanlawon, Adedimeji Lateef, Blessing Jessica Obasi, Seyi Awolowo and many others, with Toyin Abraham as the lead star.
It was produced by Mimidoo Bartels, Victoria Teimere Akujobi and Matilda Sola.
The movie is about Ajoke Olooto (Toyin Abraham), a local prophetess who made a prediction about a football match that ended up causing a series of events that went beyond her control.
Niyi Akinmolayan, director of the upcoming movie, wrote this when he was talking about the upcoming movie;
During the Elevatorbaby screening at Abeokuta last year…I saw hundreds of people literally pushing on each other just to see @toyin_abraham some people travelled from osogbo and Akure with their families. All they wanted was to touch her and take photos and tell her how much they loved her. I had never see anything like that in all my time hanging around celebs but it gave me an epiphany!! This is a woman of the people!!
So I whispered to Toyin’s ears…”I have found a new film for you…and it’s going to be big and you will be a prophetess” she smiled and said bring it on.
The best part of the process for me was that I had to overcome ten years of laziness and fear to start writing back again!! Luckily I finished the script just before the lockdown. It’s the most tedious thing I have ever done as a filmmaker and I will show you all a teaser tomorrow. #prophetess is a very important film this 2021 and make sure to check it in cinemas when it comes!!! I’m going to be sharing a lot about the process as we go on.
