Charly Boy, Josh2funny, Swanky JKA star in Money Miss Road
A new action comedy film with the directorial imprints of the award winning filmmaker, Obi Emelonye, is due for release across major cinemas in Nigeria and beyond on July 22.
Spiced with lots of humour and action, the film produced by Joy Efe Odiete, Nigeria’s only female CEO of a global film distribution company Blue Pictures, features legendary entertainer Charly Boy in wit-for-wit, fist-for-fist dramatic expressions alongside internet comedy sensation, Josh Alfred (Josh2funny) and Jide Kene Achufusi (Swanky JKA).
The movie captures the lives of two friends, Josiah (Josh2funny) and Joseph (Jide Achufusi) whose chance encounter with Diokpa (Charly Boy), a ruthless criminal kingpin at a local hotel would set up for a life of luxury and misery as their rat race for survival unfolds.
Speaking on the movie, which was filmed on location in Abuja and Lagos, Emelonye who is best known for blockbusters such as BADAMASI, Last Flight to Abuja, Mirror Boy, and Oxford Gardens, says, “great films are characterised by technical depth, memorable dialogues, enduring lessons, and limitless fun. Money Miss Road is a bumper of all these values, designed to offer a remarkable cinema experience.”
The producer, Joy Odiete, says the film is Blue Pictures’ way of telling people to loosen up in a world dogged by wars, terrorism and strange viruses.
“We have had so many unpleasant stories, ranging from COVID-19 to terrorism, to wars and inflation, but there must come a time when we have to loosen up. We have to live, love, learn and laugh. That is the gap Money Miss Road has come to fill,” she says.
