A new movie, ‘Pay Day’, written and directed by Cheta Chukwu will hit the cinemas nationwide on Friday, July 3.
The flick features Big Brother Naija runners-up, Bisola Aiyeola, Baaj Adebule, Ebiye Victor, Mawuli Gavor, Frank Adekunle, Meg Otanwa and Zack Orji among others.
‘Pay Day’ tells the story of two best friends and flat mates, Paul (Baaj Adebule) and Ortega (Ebiye Victor). Just before they are about to renew their annual rent, their landlord dies suddenly without an heir apparent. The young men seize upon the opportunity to ‘enjoy’ a little. They go on an expensive night out. However, the landlord’s daughter (Segilola Ogidan) turns up the following morning and gives the boys 24-hour notice to pay up or quit.
Faced with the prospect of ejection, they embark on an overnight scheme to recover the rent, leading to a dangerous encounter with an eccentric drug baron (Frank Adekunle Macaulay), a desperate robbery attempt, a gambling adventure, and an ego war with the neighborhood bully, Orlando (Mawuli Gavor). All this while, they are being hounded by Ngozi
(Bisola Aiyeola), the neighborhood gossip, who just wants a piece of the action.
Produced by Orwi Manny Ameh, the comedy movie is being distributed by Blue Pictures.
