After a well thought-out teaser, expectations were high for Tatu, a new film by award-winning director, Don Omope, leading to a star-studded premiere at the Eko Hotel Convention center, Victoria Island, last Saturday.

It was a day of heavy downpour, but that did not deter the high-profile guests who cut across the different strata of the society.

Aside the popularity of Omope, whose credit include the award-winning and box office hit films – Taxi Driver (Oko Ashewo) and The Wedding Party, Tatu is an adaptation of a book written by the prolific author, Abraham E. Nwankwo, the recently retired Director General, Debt Management Office, and one of the films powered by Bank of Industry under its NollyFund scheme.

The epic movie stars Segun Arinze, Desmond Elliott, Toyin Abraham, Gabriel Afolayan, Rahama Sadau, Sambasa Nzeribe, Funlola Aofiyebi-Raimi, Hafiz ‘Saka’ Oyetoro, Frank Donga and a host of others.

Guests who had earlier rocked the red carpet and partook in the pre-screening cocktail were full of praises for the movie which is centered on complications around a woman’s desire for the fruit of the womb.

Scheduled for a September 15 cinema release, the films is a collaboration of Bank of Industry and Patriarch Technologies in conjunction with FilmOne Production and FilmOne Distribution.

Group Head, Creative Industry Group at the Bank of Industry, Cynthia Nwuka, who spoke about the bank’s commitment to the development of Nollywood, said Tatu is the sixth in the series of films supported by her bank.

Recall that the bank had supported films such as The CEO by Kunle Afolayan, Ayamma by Emem Isong, When Love Happens Again by Seyi Babatope, Isoken by Jadesola Osiberu, and Three Wise Men by Opa Williams.
