Wale Ojo's Directorial Debut Pulls Crowds in Nollywood



Femi Jacobs holds the audience captive.


See the photos of fast rising #Nollywood stars, Nunnsi Ojong and Susan Festus with Nancy Isime and Femi Jacobs, Wale Ojo, Ekenyerengozi Michael Chima and others at the world première of the captivating romantic comedy, "Don't Get Mad, Get Even" held Sunday evening of September 29, 2019 at the Silverbird Cinemas in the Silverbird Galleria on the Victoria Island of Lagos, Africa's largest megacity.
Other celebrities at the event included, Africa's leading action hero and ambitious filmmaker, JLeo Uche and popular comedian, Funny Bone.



The screenplay written by Raphael Dedenuola featured top Nollywood actors and actresses; Femi Jacobs in the leading role, Yemi Solade, Deyemi Okanlanwon, Kenneth Okolie, Toyin Abraham, Patience Ozokwor, Jide Kosoko, Wale Ojo, Nancy Isime, Ayo Adesanya, Jumoke George and Saidi Balogun.

This story follows two brothers, Jaiye and Juwon Kuti. Drama ensues when Jaiye - the elder brother, a university lecturer, highly-educated but poor - is forced to move into his junior brother's house, a school drop-out, but very rich. Both brothers are complete opposites. Jaiye is an uptight, deeply religious and cautious man, while Juwon is adventurous and an incorrigible Casanova who believes, the meaner you treat a woman, the keener she becomes. Is he right that women don't like nice guys? Or is it that when a woman is faced with a "bad boy," she automatically finds the challenge to tame him alluring? Does what goes around really comes around?
Release date: 4 October 2019 (Nigeria)
Director: Wale Ojo.
