Nollywood’s Mercy Johnson Okojie is expanding her movie career with her serving as an executive producer on her upcoming epic The Legend of Inikpi, for which she has just teased what is to come.
The actress took to her Instagram page to announce the upcoming film, saying, “I have always wanted to tell Nigerian stories, particularly stories about women who did great things and who are even still doing greater things, which is why the story of ‘The Legend of Inikpi’ is dear to me.”
The official synopsis reads:
Set in the ancient Kingdoms of Igala and Bini, ‘The Legend of Inikpi’ tells a compelling tale of two kingdoms on the brink of war. When the Oracle informs King Attah of Igala Kingdom of the human sacrifice demanded by the gods, the king plunges into despair; haunted by the ghosts of his past, this is a sacrifice he is not prepared to give!
In the teaser trailer, we see the stunning cinematography and the setting of a tale that should inspire many when it arrives. There is a scene of the popular actress laboring in childbirth and her reply to one of the midwives encouraging her is both witty and humorous.
Directed by Frank Rajah Arase, The Legend of Inikpi features popular Nollywood actors Odunlade Adekola, Sam Dede, Paul Obazele, Mercy Johnson Okojie, Saheed Balogun, and newbie Nancy Ameh.
