Chigul To Star In BAM/Nemsia’s First Film

According
to Biola Alabi Media (BAM), something big is about to hit the big
screen in a few months time. Chioma Omeruah, popularly known as
‘Chigul’, will be staring in the action packed comedy film ‘Banana
Island Ghost (B.I.G)’, a film BAM is producing in conjunction with
Nemsia Pictures.
 
B.I.G
is said to be a slapstick movie about a ghost that is scared to go to
heaven because he doesn’t have a soulmate, so he convinces God to give
him three days to fall in love. He is paired with the cantankerous
firecracker Ijeoma, played by Chigul who will do anything to save her
father’s house in Banana Island from the bank coming to reclaim it in
three days.
 
It
is the first from a slate of five films in a coproduction partnership
between Biola Alabi Media (BAM) and Nemsia Films. They are combining
their creative capabilities and wealth of experience to produce a slate
of ground-breaking films set to redefine Nollywood.
