"10 Days in Sun City", Another AY Makun's Commercial
AY Makun and company just wanted to hoodwink fans of #Nollywood by picking the famous RMD, Adesua Etomi, Faithia Balogun, OAP Freeze, Uti Nwachukwu, Sexy Steel, Juliet Ibrahim, Gbenro Ajibade, Peter Okoye of P-Square, Innocent ‘2Baba’ and Annie Idibia, Mercy Johnson, Falz The Bahd Guy, Yvonne Jegede, Alex Ekubo, Ali Baba, Solid Star; South African comedienne, Thenjiwe Moseley, Swazi born biracial South African star Amanda Du Pont, Celeste Ntuli and Miguel Nunez Jr. from Hollywood to cash in on their regional popularity to pull their legions of fans to the cinemas to see "10 Days in Sun City" which unfortunately is already being pirated on the internet.
Clever name dropping of stars in a movie shows that the casting director is lazy. But with the sound bites of hype, this romantic comedy can be the next highest grossing Nollywood movie after The Wedding Party.
Bianca is a campus beauty queen who Akpos has sacrificed his livelihood to make successful. After successfully winning a national beauty pageant, Bianca, ever loyal to Akpos, is now an international celebrity rolling with society’s ‘high and mighty’. Otunba who is also invested in Bianca follows Akpos and Bianca to Sun city but will Akpos give up his love with all the sweat he has invested or will Otunba win this time with the use of his wit and charm as the ‘old fox’ which he has used to conquer like he has done time and again, in the world of business?
Directed by Adze Ugah, written by Kehinde Ogunlola and coproduced by AY Makun.
