If there’s been a criticism of Nollywood over the last couple of years, it has been the failure to be more inclusive in the production process opting to tell the 1% stories of the Lagos elite. However, over the last 18 months, there’s been an indication of a paradigm shift with remakes like Rattlesnake, Living in Bondage, and the success of Up North, King of Boys, and most recently, Citation.
Day of Destiny (DOD) will sit in the adventure genre. The film follows the adventures of Chidi (Olumide Oworu) and Rotimi (Denola Grey), a pair of teenage brothers who, upset with their family’s fate, travel 20 years into the past in an attempt to change it but end up getting more than they bargained for.
Written and directed by Akay Mason and Abosi Ogba, the movie stars Norbert Young, Ireti Doyle, Jide Kosoko, Toyin Abraham, Ini Dima-Okojie, Blossom Chukwujekwu, and Mr. Macaroni in supporting roles.
