OSAS (OMOGE BINI): A FILM BY MERCY AIGBE

For some time now, word has been going round about an upcoming movie being produced by star Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe. At last, a sneak preview of the movie has been released, and it is looking very interesting and incredibly funny. We daresay that we are about to witness the birth of a great new character in the mould of Funke Akindele's "Jenifa." From what we have seen of the movie, fans will be asking for more.

The movie is done in the best tradition of contemporary Yoruba language comedy movies, featuring slapstick comedy, jaw breaking slang, and brilliant improvisation. The movie features Mercy Aigbe, as well as some other fantastic actors, such as Toyin Aimakhu, Iyabo Ojo, Kayode Akinbayo, Helen Paul, Koffi Idowu (popular comedian),  Bayo Bankole (formerly Boy Alinco in Papa Ajasco), Kelvin Ikeduba, and many more. The movie was directed by Muyideen S. Ayinde.

The movie tells the story of a colorful and eccentric Bini girl who gains admission into the University of Lagos. Though she is intelligent, she is not very exposed. Despite her eccentricity, she manages to become firm friends with a girl from a rich family. However, trouble rears its ugly head, when they both fall in love with the same guy. Mercy has said that the movie will hit Nigerian cinemas in November, and will also be taken to University of Lagos, University of Ibadan, Obafemi Awolowo University, University of Port Harcourt, and University of Benin. Mercy also said the movie will be taken to the UK, US, Dublin and Italy.

The movie was shot in Benin, Delta, and Lagos. According to Mercy, she had never really seen herself as going into the comedy genre, but she got inspired to explore it, after her appearance on Papa Ajasco, a comedy TV show, which got a warm reception.
