Award winning Nigerian singer Abolore ‘9ice’ Akande for the first time, is starring in an upcoming flick by renowned actress/ film producer Laide Bakare.
The ‘Gongo Aso’ crooner plays the lead role (Dele) in the new movie titled ‘Jejere’ which translates as tumour. The film is produced by Sim Line International and the plot revolves around an African hero that saved his environment.
‘I played Dele, who had a bad experience in his first marriage with the sudden demise of his wife and he was left alone to cater for his little daughter‘. 9ice told NET.
On being part of a movie set for the first time, 9ice said he had to “act, cry when nothing is actually wrong with me, laugh when nothing is really funny. I also have to depict this character in the presence of others. It is a privilege to be part of ‘Jejere’ and I look forward to the premiere”.
Although a release date has not been fixed, the movie will premiere in various Nigerian cities.
