When Okon and Bona meet in London, the result is a hilarious comedy. They’ve been selected for an exchange program in London, but will they return home after the program or will they attempt to make it big in London?
Written and produced by Uduak Isong Oguamanam (To Live Again, Bursting Out), the film stars the 2017 AMVCA Best Comedian -Imeh Bishop (as Okon), Alexx Ekubo (Bona), Uche Jombo, Ella Betts, Kemi OlofinMakin and Valerie Okeke among others.
Uduak’s previous movie, Falling, earned Adesua Etomi the award for the Best Actress at the 2016 Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards, beating other films like Road to Yesterday (Genevieve Nnaji) and The Visit (Nse Ikpe-Etim).
Lost in London is the third project in the Okon franchise which includes Okon in Lagos and Okon Goes to School. Interestingly, the franchise bears a similarity to the Jenifa collection, who also also left the village, went to school, and finally (in Jenifa’s Diary season 7) went to London.
Directed by Sunkanmi Adebayo (Desperate Housegirls – TV Series), the movie premieres on the 9th of June, 2017, and promises to be a rib-cracker. Check the teaser and BTS pictures below.
