Award-winning artiste, Omawumi Megbele; ace broadcaster and publisher, Adesuwa Onyenokwe; Nollywood lover boy, Ibrahim Suleiman; comedian Akpororo; award-winning actors, Tony Umez and Odunlade Adekola, as well as Canada-trained actress, Nengi Adoki; are set to headline a new movie titled, Chatroom, to be released on Friday, April 15, 2022, on international digital platform, afrocinema.tv.

Set in Lagos, Nigeria, it tells the gritty, yet inspiring story of Ebiere (Nengi Adoki), an almost down and out young lady in her mid-20s, who sees a dance reality TV show as an opportunity to get away from her haunting past. The fun-filled TV reality show takes an unexpected turn when she is triggered to face her past trauma causing nationwide turmoil. Laced with comedy, romance and power tussles, it’s a story of overcoming and finding one’s voice and inspired by true-life events.

Written and directed by Chike Ibekwe, the film is a 98-minute drama that will take audiences on a roller coaster of emotions and have audiences at the edges of their seats. It is a beautiful mix of comedic thrills with core themes around love, betrayal, stigma, sexual abuse, violence, power and more.

Other casts include award-winning actor, Sambasa Nzeribe; international singer, dancer and actress, Ronya Man; award-winning actor, Rykardo Agbor; award-winning actress and broadcaster, Vivian Anani; Ghanaian actor, Kobby Acheampong, Camerounian actor and dancer, Lea Dibebe; actress and author, Damilare Kuku among many others.

This will be the first time, Onyenokwe will be venturing into the movie industry, as she is also the associate producer of the movie apart from having an appearance in it.

The movie is produced by Peju Fadirepo Ibekwe, and shot on locations and in studios in Lagos and Onitsha. It will also have its exclusive official premiere on April 17 at the Wheatbaker Hotel, Ikoyi, Lagos.
