Okwara, Sam Loco Efe (of blessed memory), President of ANTP Prince Jide Kosoko, Biola Williams, Lilian Ikpe, and dance act Ashleigh Clark among others. The movie was directed by Desmond Elliot, a versatile actor.

However, IK has to go for his youth service in a village in Cross River and there he meets the beautiful Idara (Ini Edo).
Despite their obvious differences, the two are drawn together, but Idara harbours a secret. She has been selected to be the next high priestess of Unek, a diety worshipped by her people through dance. Something will have to give as she is torn between her love for IK and the path destiny had chosen for her.
