Mercy Johnson, Majid, Saka others, dazzle in Light Will Come
After months of working on the production, Tchidi Chikere’s Filmbaba Entertainment Limited is set to release its highly anticipated movie entitled, Light Will Come. The movie is billed to hit the cinemas across the country on February 17, 2017.
An ace filmmaker with a stunning pedigree spanning 17 years, Chikere has displayed his experience and artistic prowess as a writer, producer and director in Light Will Come, a romantic comedy that will certainly make viewing a memorable one.
Using highly rated Red Epic camera alongside a dexterous cast and crew, Light Will Come is indeed an entertaining movie guaranteed to be a box office hit. According to Chikere, shooting of the film commenced in August 2015 and ended in January 2016, while post production began in February 2016 and was completed in December of the same year.
Distributed by Silverbird Film Distribution Ltd, Light Will Come parades stars such as Mercy Johnson-Okojie, Majid Michel, Hafiz Oyetoro (Saka), Eniola Badmus, Shaffy Bello, Ada Ameh, Rahama Sadau, and Nuella Njubigbo among others.
The movie tells the story of Lukas (Hafiz Oyetoro), a bumbling and comical Personal Assistant to his chronic bachelor boss, Raymond (Majid Michel). Raymond’s parents mandated him to get married and the desperate search together with Lukas to find the ideal woman his elite parents would approve of goes wrong repeatedly.
Time is running out on Raymond and he secretly engages the services of an escort agency that presents Jessica (Nuella Njubigbo) to pose as his fiancée, but the plan ends in disaster. There comes Viola (Mercy Johnson) who agrees to the plan but there’s a snag, as they are both from different worlds. The web of deceit is continuously spun before Raymond’s parents until something finally goes wrong… And add to all these, is Lukas, who has to contend with his domineering and abusive wife, Aisha (Eniola Badmus), who takes delight in physically assaulting him at home.
“Society makes huge demands from the individual and often times the individual bows to these pressures by taking drastic measures which often do not agree with the principles of the society. Light Will Come reveals how a good thing can come out of a bad situation, and that no one should write off anybody, for we all deserve as many chances as possible,” Chukere said.
“We left no stone unturned in ensuring that the film meets the high cinematic standard hinged on an awesome well-told story that the audience will find highly entertaining. The movie was made with a huge budget to ensure that we meet the international standard of best practices in film production through seasoned professionals engaged in the project,” he added.
