Akin Lewis, Ngozi Nwosu, Uti Nwachukwu and Shaffi Bello have starred in a new movie entitled ‘Whose Meal Ticket’.

Written and produced by Nollywood actress, Grace Edwin-Okon, the movie also star Lisa Omorodion, Tana Adelana, Femi Durojaiye and Iyke Nnabuife.

Grace described ‘Whose Meal Ticket’ as a drama with slight use of comedy and an intriguing story.

Speaking on the movie, Grace said: The Executive Producer, Kehinde Omoru asked me to work on the story because she has this idea of making films that have ‘edutainment’ appeal, such that people can watch it and learn a thing or two. And being a nurse, her own area of education is health tips. As a matter of fact, this is the second film I’m making for Kehinde; the first one is called ‘Deeply Cut’, which is about Hepatitis B.

I strongly believe that audiences will love the film. They will sure come out of the cinema laughing, and I really look forward to getting amazing feedbacks from the Nigerian and African audience.” she said.

‘Whose Meal Ticket’ tells the story of Lisa Philips (Lisa Omorodion) who is hell bent on regaining her family’s lost glory, encouraged by her mother, Mrs. Philips (Ngozi Nwosu), with the advice of devious wiles and strategies of using what she has to get what she wants.

This is just as Mrs. Disu (Shaffy Bello), wife of the rich and influential Lagos socialite Chief Disu (Akin Lewis) battles diabetes. Testing her blood sugar level daily is painful, effortful and potentially damaging.

‘Whose Meal Ticket’ has Kehinde Omoru as Executive Producer and is scheduled for a premiere on April 15, 2017 at Genesis Cinemas - Palms Lekki.
