By Patricia Uyeh,
Nigerian music stars, Seyi Shay and Vector, are not limiting themselves to music alone as they have landed their first movie role in Biola Alabi Media’s latest production entitled “Lara and the Beat”.
Others who featured in the movie included Somkele Idhlama, Chinedu Ikedieze (Aki), Bimbo Manuel, Chioma Akpotha, DJ Xclusive and Deyemi Okanlawon.
It also stars several Nollywood heavyweight actors like Ademola Adedoyin, Shaffi Bello, Lala Akindoju, Wale Ojo, Akah Nnani, Uche Jombo and others.
In a brief chat with the movie’s executive producer, Biola Alabi, she said: “Lara and the Beat is a special project beyond what we accomplished with “Banana Island Ghost”. This is a movie with many layers and experiences for everyone. We and our partners are putting our best into this production. We want this production to be appealing to both our local and global audience.”
“When I first heard the story idea and the cast list including many industry heavyweights I respect so much, I immediately knew this was a production I wanted to direct and be a part of. Lara and the Beat has been such an interesting journey so far, and I can’t wait for everyone to see what we are creating here,”
‘Lara and the Beat’ movie, which is fusion of music, fashion, romance, and comedy, tells a story of the young and beautiful Giwa sisters caught in the center of a financial scandal with their late parents’ Media Empire.
The sisters are forced out of their privileged bubble, and must learn to build their own future and salvage their family’s past.
