While details about the film mostly remain under wraps, we are introduced to our two female leads. Ema and Yinka, played by Omowunmi Dada and Efe Irele respectively, are not satisfied with their given career. They wish life would treat them differently until it does.
L.I.F.E will reunite filmmaker Adia with Irele, who starred in her 2021 erotic drama Hey You! as an online sex worker who has unwittingly captured the affection of her neighbour.
Joining Dada and Irele in the drama are JAY Paul aka Mr Flamez, Debo ‘Mr Macaroni’ Adedayo (Ayinla), Tope Olowoniyan (Weather for Two), Olarotimi Fakunle, Eso Dike (Weather for Two) and Kate Adepegba (The Figurine).
L.I.F.E is produced by Judith Audu for Judith Audu Productions and the cinematography is handled by Toyin Odukoya (April Showers) aka Teecam. Audu, who also works as an actress and director, was a producer on the recent Netflix release Elesin Oba.
Uyoyou Adia, who has previously worked with Audu on The Sessions (screened at NollywoodWeek Festival 2021) which also starred Omowunmi Dada, scripted the 2020 high-profile remake of Nneka the Pretty Serpent for Play Network Africa. Her recent directorial outings include comedy-drama Charge and Bail (2021) and Anthill’s Hey You! (2022).
Currently in post-production, L.I.F.E is scheduled to be released in 2023.
