Movie Stars Support ‘The CEO’ In Accra

By Daily Guide

Nigerian award-winning director, Kunle Afolayan's latest movie, 'The CEO', opened in Ghana last Friday after enjoying months of cinema success in Nigeria.

The movie was outdoored with a special screening ceremony at the Silverbird Cinemas in Accra, and it attracted a lot of A-list faces in Ghana's movie industry.

Among them were Yvonne Nelson, Lydia Forson, Joselyn Dumas, Shirley Frimpong Manso, Zynnel Zuh, Christabel Ekeh, Salma Mumin and others who came to grace the occasion.

Also present were the movie's director, Kunle Afolayan, and Wale Ojo, an actor in the movie.

It also stars Hilda Dokubo, Kemi Lala-Akindoju, and Kenyan actor, Peter King, among others.

Set mainly on a beautiful beach resort on the outskirts of Lagos in Nigeria, 'The CEO' is a mystery-thriller surrounding five top executives from across Africa who are dispatched on a one-week leadership retreat by a multinational telecommunications firm to determine which one to appoint as the firm's new CEO.

Things go awry when one-by-one the executives are eliminated in sudden death circumstances and the finger falls on the last two remaining executives as prime suspects.

The movie has had a couple of premieres in other countries, including an in-flight premiere for the cast and crew as they travelled from Lagos to Paris for the Nollywood Week via AirFrance.

Kunle Afolayan begged pirates at one of the movie's earlier premieres not to pirate the movie, saying, “I borrowed N50 million from Bank of Industry to produce this film, please, do not pirate the film. I beg you o. I need to pay back the money. I think I have 13 months left. Please, help o.”
