Chinonso Arubayi makes bold debut with I am Nazzy
Prominent Nollywood actress, Chinonso Arubayi, is set to make her debut as a producer, as her romantic comedy flick dubbed I Am Nazzy is geared to make its theatrical release on April 1.
Directed by Kayode Peters, I Am Nazzy throws up an interesting narrative on identity, as the main character who is a fast-rising artiste accidentally switches places with a doppelganger who lacks the glitz and glam she enjoys.
Within I Am Nazzy, Chinonso packs a star-studded cast from herself down to Jidekene Achufusi, Jimmy Odukoya, Denrele Edun, IK Ogbonna, Ada Jesus, among others.
Among its myriad pleasure points, the flick importantly soars for spotlighting vital conversations on mental health, especially on anxiety and depression. It advocates seeking therapy as the main character unpacks her struggles with a therapist in the movie.
According to lead actress and producer, Chinonso Arubayi, “The entire cast hopes to pull on the heartstrings of Nigerians with this romantic comedy, while spreading the important message of appreciating the life you have. I am Nazzy shows that ‘all that glitters is not gold,’ it is a story of life, dreams, hope and self-discovery. Once it is out in cinemas viewers will definitely be able to resonate with it.”
