Get ready for Stormy Hearts, a story by Brenda Ogbuka and Chijioke Ononiwu. Directed by Tope Alake (a filmmaker and critic), the movie is a Judith Audu (JAP) project for ROK Studios. It’s her second feature after the award-winning Just Not Married (2016) which starred members of the present cast. Stormy Hearts will debut on the 2nd of June, 2017.
The new blockbuster features Rotimi Salami (AMVCA Best Supporting Actor), Kelechi Udegbe, Eddie Watson, Christiana Martin, Kenneth Okolie (Meet The In-Laws), Theresa Edem-Isemin, Tomiwa Kukoyi, Etinosa Idemudia, Fred Amata, Stan Nze, Debbi Ohiri, Ogee Nelson, Omoye Uzamere, Greg Ojefua (The Arbitration) and a host of others. Makeup was done by Delola Fadipe and I daresay Kelechi Udegbe’s eye-brow ring wasn’t looking out of place.
“After Basi (Eddie Watson), a music producer, quarrels with his protege Kachi (Theresa Edem-Isemin), a talented singer, over her partying ways, she abandons him for Johnson (Kenneth Okolie), a bigger music producer in town. The breakup hits Basi hard. Meanwhile, Ella (Christiana Martin), a prostitute escapes from her abusive pimp to another city to start a new life. She finds an apartment right next to Basi’s flat. She would hear Basi playing mournfully on the piano each night. Ella and Basi cross paths, and after much pleading from Ella, they develop a relationship that changes both their lives forever.”
