As far as film production is concerned, it has emerged that Obi Emelonye is not resting on his oars. After a successful run at the cinemas with ‘The Mirror Boy’ and ‘Last Flight To Abuja’, the producer cum director is back with yet another block buster entitled, ‘Onye Ozi’ (The Messenger), a subtitled Igbo language movie featuring the comedian, Okey Bakassi.
‘Onye Ozi’ tells the story of Metumaribe (Okey Bakassi) who arrived in London with high expectations and a two-year plan to return to Nigeria a rich man. However, life in London with his new wife Mkpurunma (Ngozi Igwebike) is not going according to plan.
On a fateful night, TJ an old English man (Stephen Moriaty) is chased, by some masked men, into a party organized to welcome Metu to London and shot in front of his eyes. As party goers run away, Metu attempts to help the man. The dying man squeezes an envelope and a bunch of keys into Metu’s hand and whispers a message as he takes his last breath.
From that point on, Metu becomes involved. And no matter how much he runs from it or how long it takes; he knows he must deliver the message as he promised. Now his two-year plan has become a psychological adventure that will change his life and the lives of those around him forever.
The movie, produced and directed by Obi Emelonye has an engaging storyline, with the capacity to keep the viewers glued to the big screen for as long as the movie last.
‘Onye Ozi’ will be premiered at Silverbird Galleria Ikeja, Lagos on Friday, November 22, 2013, which is also the day it will be in cinemas nationwide.
