‘Breaded Life’, a Nigerian drama-comedy movie starring Bolanle Ninalowo and Timini Egbuson, screened in Lagos yesterday ahead of its cinema debut on April 16.

The private screening held at Filmhouse Cinema in Lekki, Lagos.

Kicking off with a red carpet session, the event united film executives, journalists, cast members, and other entertainers, all of whom watched the movie.

‘Breaded Life’ tells the story of the spoiled son of a wealthy family. As conflict ensues between him and his father’s widow over his refusal to pursue a meaningful life, he wakes up one day to realise no one he knew recognised him.

The film, which is directed by Biodun Stephen, is a collaboration between Shutterspeed Project and David Wade.

Apart from Timini (the lead), the dramedy features top actors like Jide Kosoko, Bimbo Ademoye, Lateef Adedimeji, Bisola Aiyeola, Tina Mba, Nkechi Blessing, Funnybone, MC Lively, among other peripheral characters.

Speaking to TheCable Lifestyle, Stephen projected the movie to rake in “at least N500 million” across the cinemas.

“After the cinema experience with this movie, you can then go back to your unpaid rent or the trouble with traffic.”

Tiwa Oladigbo, one of the producers of the movie who doubles as a husband to the director, recounted how the production team had to deal with local thugs and security while filming at the heart of Lagos’ busy Agege market.

“Initially, the cast selection was challenging, you know, having to choose who fits the roles and what we wanted to depict. Due to the locations we needed for production, we had to do a lot of reconnaissance, so to speak,” he said.

“We did things behind the scenes to ensure we had a smooth sail. For example, we had to film in the heart of the Agege market on a busy day. We had to deal with touts. We shot a time when the #EndSARS riot was rife.

“There was a lot of apathy with security agents. You always know that you want to produce in certain locations with security men. We had to find the balance between what form of security to get and the safety of the cast.

“People like Lateef Adedimeji and Bimbo are popular in the Yoruba industry. Having them in the market with observers shouting and wanting to touch them while we were doing what we wanted to do was tough.

“We envisage quite a lot and planned overtime. We encountered a bit of a snag in the early days of production but everything stabilised along the line. The filming lasted for about 16 days.”

Egbuson: I hung out with ghetto boys to master my role.

Egbuson, who spoke to TheCable Lifestyle, said he didn’t expect the experiences he had on the movie set despite the efforts he put into the preparation.

“I had to dig deep, hanging out with all the ghetto boys living in my area. I had to understand what it meant to live a certain type of reality. Yet, all the training did not prepare me for what I experienced when we got into Agege,” the actor said.

“It was emotional and thought-provoking because I also left the movie set as a better person. I was able to tap into some realities I never expected I would have to deal with as a human being. Everyone on set brought good vibes.”
