Award-winning Nollywood actress, Eniola Badmus is popular for her comic roles in Nigerian movies such as Jenifa, Blackberry Babes, Mr. & Mrs Ibu and so many others. Her latest featured movie, ‘Basira in London’ is another comedy movie where she played the lead actress as an illiterate and gullible girl who felt she could have everything she wanted done her own way.
According to Eniola Badmus, “‘Basira in London’ took me to another level in my career. It was the first time I will be working with white people, a white man shot ‘Basira in London’ most of the casts in the movie where white people. Also, the fact that I work with the white people I was able to see the way they work, its a bit quite different from what we do here but we too are not bad. And also shutting down the Odeon Cinema in London made me feel like I was accepted world wide, it makes me feel like people are watching what I do, it makes me feel like the sky is not even my limit, I feel so honoured I must say, to my London fans I love you guys so very much.”
‘Basira in London’ which is currently showing in cinemas is a hilarious comedy-drama that tells the story of an African woman (Eniola Badmus) who relocates to London with great expectations. The culture clash and her efforts in trying to fit in make this film ‘unmissable’. The movie gives stamp to the premise, ‘you can take a girl out of Nigeria but you cannot take Nigeria out of the girl’.
The movie stars favourite Nollywood big girl, Eniola Badmus, Jason Adedeji-Abraham, Destinee Anthony, Tolu Yesufu, and Theodora Ibekwe-Oyebade. The movie is produced and directed by Philippa Chiedu Abraham, who also starred in the movie.
