I have been an ardent follower of Nigerian films for many years. In those years, I have seen some beautiful and great films, and I have also seen some not-so-good films. In recent times, I have also come to appreciate some actors who are very dexterous in their craft.
Somehow, I started seeing myself fantasising about seeing these actors altogether in one film. The first time I shared this thought with a friend, she discarded it on the grounds that it won’t be easy for a director or a producer to gather them in a film.
Just when my fantasy was beginning to drain away, I heard the news of Entreat. Entreat is a film written and directed by Michael Asuelime and a production of BP Vision Ltd in conjunction with MAF.
The film parades a stellar cast that includes Dakore Egbuson-Akande, Funlola Aofiyebi, Sadiq Daba, Wale Ojo, Alexx Ekubo, Osas Ighodaro, Bryan Okwara, Wole Ojo, Ajibade Smart, Eku Edewor, Zainab Balogun, Kunle Coker, Stephanie Coker, Ms Aboaba, Queen Ahneva Ahenva and also featuring Pastor Femi Paul of Grace Assembly. When I saw the cast for Entreat, I felt a sense of joy in me and said to myself “dreams truly come true.” Now, I am not only going to see my favourite actors, I will also see some other veterans like Sadiq Daba. What more can anyone ask for in the cast for a film?
I am confident that Entreat will be a great film not only because of the starry cast, but also other important elements.
Having followed Michael Asuelime and BP Vision productions for over 10 years now, I have come to trust the company for the quality in their work. Michael has produced some of the best stage plays I have seen in this country.
I remember seeing Mystery that featured Yemi Blaq, OC Ukeje and Kemi ‘Lala’ Akindoju; I also remember seeing Same Page that featured OC Ukeje, Wale Ojo, Nse Ikpe Etim and Kemi ‘lala’ Akindoju. Michael has built a great reputation for himself in producing amazing productions and I do not see why Entreat will be different. So you want to have my advice?
Go see Entreat when it hits the cinemas and share the news to your friends and families, in fact, become an evangelist for the film
