‘We Don’t Live Here Anymore’, a film directed by Tope Oshin, took Lagos by storm as it premiered on Sunday, October 14 at IMAX Cinemas, Lekki.
Celebrities including Ashionye Raccah, Uti Nwachukwu, Denrele Edun, Latasha Ngwube, Timi Dakolo, and Shade Ladipo graced the event.
Written by Noni Salma and directed by Tope Oshin, ‘We Don’t Live Here Anymore’ tells the story of two teenagers, Tolu Bajulaiye (Francis Sule) and Chidi Egwuonwu (Temidayo Akinboro) in a fictional Prominence High School who found themselves embroiled in a scandal that completely alters their future.
With a scandal so close to home, Nike (Funlola Aofiyebi-Raimi), a powerful matriarch, desperately pulls all strings to reset the narrative – leading to a battle of class and wit.
Speaking at the premiere, the executive producer, Olumide Makanjuola, said: “The question for me is how can we make parents think and understand better for their children. When they do, then they can create a good atmosphere for their children to live, thrive and be happy. This is the reality around us that we have to really think about.”
Produced by Tope Oshin, executive produced by Olumide Makanjuola and The Initiative for Equal Rights (TIERs), ‘We Don’t Live Here Anymore’ stars Funlola Aofiyebi-Raimi, Katherine Obiang, Osas Ighodaro-Ajibade, Francis Sule, Temidayo Akinboro, and Omotunde ‘Lolo’ Adebowale-David.
