Popular Nollywood actress, Kate Henshaw has on Friday, February 22, released the details of her new work where she acted a lead role jostling for a governorship seat in the upcoming movie titled ‘4th republic.’
The trailer of the actress’ movie surfaced online in on the eve of the much-anticipated presidential and National Assembly elections that were rescheduled for Saturday, February 23.
The film, is co-produced by Griot Studios Ltd. and Amateur Heads Production, has Bem Pever, Ishaya Bako, Kemi ‘Lala’ Akindoju and Ummi A. Yakubu serving as producers.
Naija News reports that the film is funded by grants from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and the Open Society Initiative for West Africa (OSIWA).
Henshaw, who acted the role of a Mabel King, challenges the victory of the incumbent, Idris Sani (Sani Mu’azu) for her mandate after her campaign manager dies.
She is supported by her aide Ike (Eyinna Nwigwe), and Sikiru’s daughter Bukky (Linda Ejiofor) while Sani’s associate St. James (Bimbo Manuel) and Ike’s Law School rival, Danladi (Yakubu Mohammed) try to take down witnesses.
Commenting on the new movie, Kate Henshaw said in her words: “4th Republic is not just a film right for the election period. I think what is most significant is the message it carries; we need to stand up for the truth and fight for justice. It’s our duty.”
