Mike Ezuruonye’s ‘Divorce Not Allowed’ is trending
Talented actor and filmmaker, Mike Ezuruonye, has moved on from the success of Brother Jekwu at the cinemas to serving another Nollywood comedy drama.
This time, he is doing comedy with a serious message for couples and lovers. His latest work, Divorce Not Allowed, opened in cinemas across the country last week.
Ezurounye said he was inspired to make the movie, having realised that one of the reasons the world would continue to witness incessant breakups, divorce and unhappy marriages, is because people have stopped fighting for their marriages.
“Marriages continue to crash today because many people give up too easily on their marriages. People have simply stopped fighting for their marriages and when you fail to fight for what you believe in, you have lost the fight already. That is because you didn’t even make the effort.
“I made the movie Divorce Not Allowed because I want people to start fighting for their marriages again in order for us to have a better world. Imagine if all married couples, regardless of their challenges, decide that whatever the cost, they would make their marriage work, would divorce still be as rampant as it is today?
“This is the exact message we hope this movie will pass across, even as it is served in comedy,” he explained.
The movie centres on issues young couples face in marriage and how their resolutions sometimes threaten to shake the foundation of their love.
The hilarious movie parades an array of stars, such as Bolanle Ninalowo, Iyabo Ojo, Angela Okorie, Eniola Badmus, Mike Ezuruonye and other worthy actors, who were stellar in their delivery.
