On the heels of the movie teaser of Chigul’s (Chioma Omeruah) hilarious prayer for ‘Sumtin BIG’ that went viral a few weeks ago, Bam-Nemsia Pictures has released the first official trailer of its highly anticipated movie, Banana Island Ghost (B.I.G), written and directed by BB Sasore.
The trailer was unveiled at the iMax Cinemas, Lekki, L;agos with Nollywood stakeholders in attendance.
Executive Producer of the movie, Biola Alabi, said, “Banana Island Ghost is unprecedented in many regards, and we believe that this trailer will excite viewers, across Nigeria and beyond, to look forward to a rib cracking experience when the movie hits the cinema screens in August.”
