Nigerian Award-winning Actress and producer, Funke Akindele-Bello, is set to drop another blockbuster movie titled “Your excellency” and it features a lot of renowned actors and actresses such as Akin Lewis, Deyemi Okanlawon and Osas Ighodaro.
‘Your Excellency’ tells the story of a bumbling, billionaire businessman and failed presidential candidate, who becomes a credible contender all through the power of social media.
As the drama unfolds, it seems possible that even a perpetual loser, written off by everyone, can pose a serious challenge for the presidency.
Directed by Nollywood’s queen of comedy, Funke Akindele-Bello, the movie is funny and touching in equal measure, as it shows the importance, love and loyalty play in facing life’s challenges.
The film also features Kemi ‘Lala’ Akindoju, Shaffy Bello, Kunle Coker, Eku Edewor, Emmanuel ‘EmmaOMG’ Edunjobi, Alexx Ekubo, Oreka Godis, Mike Iheuwa, Aletile ‘Seyi Law’ Lawrence, Bimbo Manuel, Ini Dima-Okojie, Chioma ‘Chigul’ Omeruah, Ikechukwu Onunaku, Helen Paul and Toni Tones
Funke Akindele-Bello, who takes on the role of the lead actress in the movie said: “Your Excellency already had a great script by Yinka Ogun, a wonderful cast and experienced producers, so all I had to do was provide a guiding hand and make sure we keep the audience entertained from beginning to end.”
National Sportslink learned that the official trailer was released on Friday, November 8, 2019, on YouTube by EbonyLife Films, the production studio behind the film. The movie will be in cinemas by December.
Director Funke Akindele-Bello is ecstatic. “As the release draws closer, it’s great to feel the excitement building within the audience. I think this trailer shows how much fun we had making this film, and how much joy and laughter we want to spread this holiday season.”
The Executive Producer Mo Abudu share the trailer with the world. “With just 5 weeks to go, this trailer will show moviegoers the funny, feel-good, family movie we have in store for them. Your Excellency has Nigeria’s funniest woman as both lead actor and director, with an amazing cast who deliver wonderful performances. I can’t wait for everyone to see the entire film,” she said.
