The groom’s ex-girlfriend shows up, bringing along a basket full of drama! Every corner is shaken as a cupboard full of secrets are opened, exposing concealed reactions of everyone directly involved, including a challenged married couple and a troubled engaged couple. Two Brides and a Baby’ is a beautifully crafted romantic comedy about Keche and Bankole whose plan to walk down the aisle was jeopardised by emergence of the other woman. Chains of events within 24-hours spiral the ‘perfect relationship’ out of control and the two must weigh whether to risk the moment or stake the future on what they feel.
Speaking on the nomination, Blessing Egbe says the 12 nominations shows that hard work pays. ‘We went extra miles for the movie, as I speak to you; we are still going extra miles. We wanted something very unique from what is obtainable in the market, the story isn’t your regular run of the mills, the casting was done painstakingly, and the technical input was close to perfection while the director gave it his all. This nominations show that hard work pays. We hope for the best and we believe our best is yet to come’.
