On Sunday, June 29, 2014, at about 5pm, movers and shakers of the movie industry will converge at the Silverbird Cinemas in Ikeja, Lagos for the premiere of the movie, ‘Somewhere Down The Line’. The flick is produced by fast-rising actress and winner of the 2011 edition of Next Movie Star, Tamara Eteimo, under the stables of Shola Fajobi’s Origin 8 Formats Limited.
‘Somewhere Down the Line’ is Fajobi’s first production since he delved into production and distribution of movies.
“I have not been doing much with Nollywood directly in the past but because of the interest most of my clients are beginning to show in Nollywood, I decided I would throw my business acumen, which obviously is not in doubt, into those two areas.
“This year, I have said I would produce 50 movies and so far so good, I have produced 12 movies and certainly before the end of the year, I would have produced all 50movies. ‘Somewhere Down the Line’ is actually one of our first film productions, after this; at least we shall be releasing four films every month under my stable.
“Definitely not all the movies will go to the cinema, not all will be premiered. Some will go to the cinema and some will go straight into DVD,” Fajobi said.
Sunday’s event promises to be star studded, the organizers assured.
Tamara, the lead character in Wale Adenuga’s Superstory, ‘Itohan’, on her own part, combines an amazing cast of talented Nollywood actors that excites crowd as well as fresh faces, most of who were housemates with her at the Next Movie Star. Bukky Wright, Yemi Blaq, Rachel Oniga and Mary Lazarus, Yinka Ayelokun, Adetomiwa Kukoyi, Yinka Salau, kingsley Ogboso and others.
Speaking on her cinema debut, the gifted lady said, “In as much as it’s my first, I tried my best to make it a success. A movie has to be appealing to the audience and once it gets a good reception, believe me; it will stay long at the cinema. I’m not saying the movie is perfect but it is close to perfect. Nobody will watch ‘Somewhere Down the Line’ and say it’s a stupid film. They will connect to it one way or the other.”
‘Somewhere Down the Line’ tells the story of a couple, Tolu and Goke who, eight years into their marriage, remain childless. They choose the path of IVF but it leads them down an emotional destination, causing more sorrow than joy.
The couple agrees on surrogacy but it turns out that Grace, the surrogate becomes emotionally attached, ‘Somewhere Down the Line’ and does not want to part with the foetus in her womb.
