Elevator Baby pictures the often awkward Nigerian tale of how people leading different lives interact with one another.
This is particularly exciting, noting that in the movie, the paths of a privileged young man crosses that of a semi-literate, with the former needing to help the latter in a matter of life and death.
Such a dynamic is suspenseful, and would require some level of humility from a rich and hot-tempered figure – an irony with evergreen lessons.
Here are three things to watch out for in the drama-filled Elevator Baby.
The Toyin Abrahams Factor:
Toyin Abrahams is a household name in the Nigerian Movie industry and for good reason.
Her acting prowess has seen her drop masterclass scenes every time she hits the screens.
Known for her particular ability to portray the emotions of the not-so-learned Nigerian (like in the Alakada Series amongst many others), It would be intriguing how she replicates this ability and experience as she portrays a similar role in this movie.
The Film Production:
With such achievement under his belt, you can only expect that this movie would be of equal if not better standards. Need I say more?
Another Superstar Egbuson in the Making?:
Timini Egbuson, brother to veteran actress Dakore Akande (Popularly Dakore Egbuson in Nollywood) is playing a lead role in this movie.
Starring in the Shuga TV series, Tinsel series, Isoken amongst others, many has dubbed him one of Nigeria’s Next Rated stars.
It would be a joy to watch just how fully he morphs into a superstar and roles such as these would definitely on his budding success story, moving forward.
Fortunately, VIVA Cinemas will be showing The Elevator Baby from October 9. Get your tickets and enjoy the experience.
