Speaking on this partnership, Henry Kwao, Managing Director, Evrit Films stated “We reached out to Jade Osiberu as soon as we saw the trailer for the film. The quality of the film was undeniable and we recognized a story that would resonate with the African diaspora demographic. The feedback we received after screening the full film with bookers from the major cinemas in the UK has been unprecedented and we are confident the film will do really well in our selected cinemas.”

This much anticipated and soon to be released movie is proudly sponsored by Nigeria’s Foremost Premium Less Sugar Malt Drink – Amstel Malta. Speaking about the sponsorship, the Senior Brand Manager – Amstel Malta, Nigerian Breweries Plc, Chidike Oluaoha said, “Amstel Malta is the Premium Quality Non-Alcoholic Malt Drink that believes in the great talent of the average Nigerian and inspires these talents (such as Jadesola Osiberu) to be the best they can be.

Written, Produced and Directed by Jadesola Osiberu, Isoken is a story of self-discovery of a single and successful unmarried 34-year-old woman. It explores cultural expectations, racial stereotypes and bonds that unite families in touching, dramatic and often hilarious ways.
