Bimbo Manuel, Uche Jombo, Chigul, others star in BAM/Nemsia’s first film

Sensational comedy act, Chioma Omeruah, popularly known as ‘Chigul’ is set to star in a forthcoming comedy film titled Banana Island Ghost (B.I.G).

The movie, a production of Biola Alabi Media (BAM), is daily creating a wave of excitement and anticipation online as it’s billed to hit the big screen in a few months.

Being produced in conjunction with Nemsia Pictures, B.I.G is said to be a slapstick movie boasting a funny plot about a ghost that is scared to go to heaven because he doesn’t have a soul mate.

To avoid the fate, he convinces God to give him three days to fall in love and he is paired with the cantankerous Ijeoma, a character played by Chigul who will do anything to save her father’s house in Banana Island from the bank that is threatening to reclaim it in just three days. It is the first from a slate of five films in a co-production partnership between Biola Alabi Media (BAM) and Nemsia Films.

The two firms are combining their creative capabilities and wealth of experience to produce a series of ground-breaking films set to redefine the Nollywood arena. Speaking about the matter, Biola Alabi, CEO of Biola Alabi Media, said: “This partnership with Nemsia Films headed by BB Sasore and Derin Adeyokunnu is part of our mission to work with great talents to tell great African stories for a local and global audience.

The Nemsia team brings a fresh perspective and energy to the Nollywood landscape, Nemsia Films is the company behind the production of ‘Before 30’, the most watched African show.”

Banana Island Ghost stars industry heavyweights Ali Nuhu, Bimbo Manuel, Damilola Adegbite, Dorcas Fapson, Patrick Diabuah, Saheed Balogun, Tomiwa Edun, and Uche Jombo.

“Embarking on feature film projects has always been on our agenda, and when the opportunity with Mrs. Biola Alabi came up, we were certain it was the right step to take.

The Team at Biola Alabi Media (BAM) headed by the media icon Biola Alabi brings a wealth of knowledge, creativity and experience in creating great content that a global audience will enjoy and will propel Nollywood to greater heights,” said BB Sasore, the Writer/Director.
