NOLLYWOOD NEWS — I would like to share with the Nollywood Community, photos of Olu Jacobs and Patience Ozokwor (Mama G) sent back to school, in the movie SCHOOL AGE, directed by Tchidi Chikere.
If you can recollect, Nigeria Movie Network (NMN) made the hilarious movie known to the global Nollywood community, when they shared behind the scene pictures of Olu Jacobs and Mama G, holding their hands as they walk to school. NMN revealed to us that the post was so engaging, it reached over 300,000 thousand people on Facebook.
The above picture post had the following message:
The next day, NMN shared another behind the scene picture of Mama G and Olu Jacobs; along with the following message:
“Here’s another behind the scene picture of Mama G and Olu Jacobs, sent back to school, even at old age. They are both pictured here with director Tchidi Chikere and his actor wife — Nuella Njubuigbo.
The movie is still in production, and NMN just found out the name of the movie is ‘SCHOOL AGE’.
For the very few who think Mama G and Olu Jacobs stooped so low by accepting to play this hilarious characters, Nigeria Movie Network wants you to know this: ….
Olu Jacobs and Mama G, are well respected veteran actors with integrity. They don’t accept anyhow movie scripts with crappy stories and bad production. For them to have accepted to interpret this hilarious school student characters at old age, plus working with a proven director like Tchidi Chikere — they most likely have good reasons and foresight, to have accepted the role.
Who wouldn’t like the opportunity to put a smile on the faces of millions of people, by simply doing what they love doing; while also making a great deal of money at the same time?
BTW, have we thought of how many ‘illiterate’ mamas and papas could be motivated to go back to school after seeing this pic, or watching the movie?
The message here is; it’s never too late to do what? (__________________) Pls, fill in the blank when commenting on this post.
Let’s continue to anticipate the release of this one-of-a kind, hilarious movie!!” –Nigeria Movie Network
