ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY ARE YOU READY??
LAGOSIANS ARE YOU READY??
THE BLING LAGOSIANS (Every dream has it’s price)
Have you ever thought about what it would be like to walk in the shoes and delve into the lives of the 1% of the 1% even for just one day?! #TheBlingLagosians are here; Bolanle Austen Peters has her directorial debut with “The Bling Lagosians” having successfully showcased critically acclaimed stage plays such as Saro the Musical, Wakaa the Musical, Fela and most recently, the Kalakuta Queens.
The movie is a powerful story and gives us a glimpse into the lifestyle of Lagos’ high society; the “big men”, “big madams’ and their inner circle of the ruling elite. They are super rich and they do not feel guilty about it one bit! In the film, we step into the world of the elite who are truly in charge of Lagos; these folks have immense power.
These are the 1% of the 1% in Nigeria and they put everyone in the shade with their lavish display of wealth. They may have the wealth, the luxuries and of course : “The Bling” lifestyle,but have they mastered their pursuit of happiness?
Austen-Peter’s vision for this film is to create something reflective of her experience in Lagos The Movie tells the story of “The Holloways”, a powerful Lagos socialite circle whose matriarch never disappoints when it comes to flaunting her families extreme wealth. She is resolute on having her 51st birthday become the year’s biggest society event – however things take a turn when her family’s huge debt verges on being exposed – How will the family cover it up when she is 100% reluctant to cut back on her extravagant lifestyle?
While it doesn’t give too much of the plot away, it’s clear that the film is going to be very scandalous, and if you live in Lagos, this should come as no real surprise to you.
Characters in the widely anticipated movie includes Helen Paul, Alex Ekubo, Brother Shaggy, Gbenga Titilayo, Elvina Ibru, Monalisa Chinda, Toyin Abraham, Busola Aiyeola, Bamike Olawunmi and many more.
