“Payday” follows the story of two best friends and flatmates, Paul and Ortega, who are about to renew their yearly rent, but before that, their Landlord dies unexpectedly, and without any seeming heir apparent.
The young men seize the unfortunate but good opportunity to ‘enjoy’ a little.
They go on an expensive night out. Unfortunately, the Landlord’s daughter turns up the following morning and gives the boys 24-hour notice to pay up or quit.
They embark on an overnight scheme to recover the rent, leading to a dangerous encounter with an eccentric drug baron, a desperate robbery attempt, a gambling adventure, and an ego war with the neighbourhood bully, Orlando.
All the while they were hounded by Ngozi, the gossip in the neighbourhood, who just wants a piece of the action.
“Payday” features Bisola Aiyeola, Baaj Adebule, Ebiye Victor, Mawuli Gavor, Frank Adekunle, Meg Otanwa and Zack Orji.
“Payday” is produced by Orwi Manny Ameh, written and directed by Cheta Chukwu.
