Izu Ojukwu’s Power of 1 is now available on Amazon Prime Video for viewers in the US and UK. The political thriller, which is partly inspired by 2 Baba’s shelved 2017 protests stars Alexx Ekubo in the lead role of Justin Aba, a socially conscious afro-pop artiste with a large following. When Justin Aba decides to use his influence to stage a protest against the policies of the incumbent government, he is drawn into a game of politics he didn’t bargain for.
This film shows the twists, turns, and intrigue of a proposed protest march called by an influential pop artiste, that shook the socio-political landscape of Nigeria to its very foundation. Nerves are stretched to breaking point as the decision to take ownership and execute the protest throws up intriguing reactions from security operatives, political players, hustlers and opportunists
Power of 1 stars Ramsey Nouah, Anne Idibia, Jide Kosoko and Michelle Dede. The film was released in cinemas nationwide last December and has played in theatres in the UK and US.
