Chigurl Takes Into Acting

Popular female comedian, Chigurl born Chioma Omerua has finally ventured into acting.

The comedienne, will be starring in the action-packed comedy film, ‘Banana Island Ghost (B.I.G)’, a film Biola Alabi Media is producing in conjunction with Nemsia Pictures.

B.I.G is said to be a slapstick movie about a ghost that is scared to go to heaven because he doesn’t have a soulmate, so he convinces God to give him three days to fall in love. He is paired with the cantankerous firecracker Ijeoma, played by Chigurl who will do anything to save her father’s house in Banana Island from the bank coming to reclaim it in three days.

According to Biola Alabi, the CEO of Biola Alabi Media, “This partnership with Nemsia Films headed by BB Sasore and Derin Adeyokunnu is part of our mission to work with great talents to tell great African stories for a local and global audience. The Nemsia team brings a fresh perspective and energy to the Nollywood landscape.”

The movie features notable actors like Ali Nuhu, Bimbo Manuel, Damilola Adegbite, Dorcas Fapson, Patrick Diabuah, Saheed Balogun, Tomiwa Edun, and Uche Jombo and it scheduled to be released later this year.
