Synopsis – Dark Side
Before Sir Richard Awala passed on, he made sure Bankole, his only child got married to his one-time best friend’s daughter, Deola. Without a trace of love, they walk down the aisle. An accident, however, leaves Bankole Awala blind, and Deola gets constantly irritated by the situation. Apart from the burden of now living with a blind man she doesn’t love, Deola has a secret of her own – Kayode, Bankole’s best friend, is her lover.
In one of their raunchy moments, Sheila – a disgruntled ex-employee – reappears to claim certain entitlements from her former boss only to find his wife and his best friend in an entanglement of lust. In a quick twist of fate, the three of them become allies. They now plot to murder Bankole. The plan is to make it look like natural death. Kayode is apprehensive, Deola is eager, and Sheila cannot wait to lay her hands on the kind of money she’d only dreamed of – over two hundred billion naira cash deposit in Bankole’s account and a multi-billion naira gas kingdom of the Awalas!

On the 25th of July i was interviewed by VLadimir Duthier from CNN for a segment on the ‘Inside Africa’ program on Nollywood. I must say when I got the call I didn’t believe it at first, I thought why would CNN want to talk to me when there are so many established actresses out there. I simply put it down to God’s grace and favor, the interview took place at ‘House of Dorcas’ the fashion outfit which i am a brand ambassador to. Below are a few pictures with Vladimir(the CNN correspondent), Diane(CNN Producer),Bola Aduwo(my publicist) and Lola of House of Dorcas
