Brace yourselves for another romantic thriller from Cut24 (joint makers of Femi Odugbemi’s Gidi Blues), a film and documentary production company pushing the boundaries in digital cinema.

Speaking on the project and her role as ‘Alero’, Meg Otanwa (a co-star) said, “When I got the script I knew I wanted to take it… the whole experience has been amazing… the director makes me want to do this job for a life-time. The magic we are bringing with The Eve movie has not been experienced before.” Kunle Remi said, “It takes you on a journey. The plot is fantastic and the twists will leave you wanting more.”
Produced by Hauwa Allahbura and directed by Tosin Igho, The Eve stars Mawuli Gavor, Ronke Oshodi, Efa Iwara, Kunle Remi, John Okafor (AKA Mr Ibu), Hauwa Allahbura, Adeolu Adefarasin, Meg Otanwa, Toni Tones, and Uche Nwaefuna.

“As Funsho prepares to marry Yewande (his long-time heartthrob and manipulator-in-chief), a few of his childhood friends are determined to send him off with an epic bachelor’s eve party on a beach island. It’s all fun and games until a random beach visitor, Alero, runs into Funsho and mistakes him for someone else. Fast forward and the two are deep in conversation, exposing their chemistry and a common Batman interest. Twenty-four hours later all hell is unleashed as Yewande finds out about Alero and vice-versa. The wedding is called off and both Yewande and Alero want nothing to do with Funsho. Though shy and used to being underappreciated in a relationship, Funso discovers his inner warrior and fights for what he feels. The thing is, what exactly does he feel? For whom does he feel it and whose heart will he have to break?”
