Lead actress, Adesua Etomi, explaining her role in the movie, said: “I have to get into the head space, the emotional space of all my characters. – I had to do a lot of research because I had to speak in a language I don’t know.

“I had to sing in a language I don’t know. I had to learn dances I didn’t know and I had all of three days to this and as the movie went along, I had to learn a lot of things I wasn’t used to; like using a cutlass and balancing things on my head without holding them”.

In all, the actress said her role in the film showed her that she was a bit tougher than she gives herself credit for.

“Ayama taught me a lot and it stretched me because I was also playing multiple roles.

The movie also starred some of Nollywood’s best such as Wale Ojo, Majid Michel, Theresa Edem, Ime Bishop Umoh, Moses Armstrong, Ekere Ekanga among others.
