As Nigeria draws close to 2019 general elections, a compelling new short-film starring KC Ejelonu aims to stir youth participation in politics.
Produced by KOINONIA Entertainment, “Dare” revolves around Subomi Hughes (Ejelonu), a successful career accountant who has her life in front of her.
Her success pales into insignificance in the light of the prevailing poor socio-economic situation in her local community, inspiring her to do the unthinkable; quit her lucrative job.
Thrown into the uncertainty of her new odyssey as a political newbie, Subomi would be confronted by all the notorious challenges in politics such as blackmail, violence and a politically hostile political environment.
Speaking about his inspiration for the movie, Tolu Toluwase, popularly known as TOLUccI, said the movie is not just about adding his voice to a cliché call, but inspiring a new generation.
He said: “As a gospel musician/Producer & cinematographer focused on young people, and based on my years of interaction and counselling a wide spectrum of them on our multi-city concert tour platform – MASS, I felt that strong need to inspire them to begin to step out and take responsibility for Nigeria and Africa’s next level of leadership right from their local communities.”
“Dare” is available for free streaming on YouTube.
