It seems as though EbonyLife never take a break, as just last week they announced a partnership with Sony to produce three new television shows. Now, they have announced production for another Christmas film, Chief Daddy, and if their previous releases are anything to go by, we're in for a treat.
EbonyLife are well on their way to becoming Africa's entertainment behemoth, as they've been responsible for some of the biggest movies out of Nollywood today. Since their hit film, Fifty was released in 2015, they've had a new film premiere every Christmas, and they seem to be continuing this tradition with Chief Daddy.
Announcing this on Instagram, CEO of EbonyLife, Mo Abudu said:
"EbonyLife Films new feature, set to become this December’s blockbuster movie. It tells the story of billionaire industrialist Chief Beecroft, a flamboyant benefactor to a large extended family of relatives, household staff and assorted mistresses.
Chief lives large, like there’s no tomorrow, until the day he dies suddenly and the ‘bullion van’ stops! What’s in his will and who gets all that money? What happens next will surprise you, as Chief Daddy has the last laugh from beyond the grave."
From this description, we can already tell that this movie is going to be a hit. The cast includes Nollywood faves such as Bisola Aiyeola, Funke Akindele, Zainab Balogun, Falz, Kate Henshaw, MI, Richard Mofe-Damijo, Beverly Naya, Chigul and many more.
Given the wide range of comedic and dramatic actors involved, we're guessing this movie is going to follow EbonyLife's typical formula: a star-studded rom-com. We're definitely looking forward to hearing more about Chief Daddy.
