Nigerian leading entertainment and media brand, Julob Entertainment Limited has fixed a date for the premiere of their debut production, Dinobi. The movie which was produced by Izu Okafor, co-produced by Igbo Stanford Onyemaizuchi, and directed by DaVinchi Samuel-Uche was shot in the heart of Owerri City, Imo State.
It is scheduled to be premiered at the Havana Cinema, Port Harcourt Road, Owerri with the star cast and other celebrities on the guest list.
Dinobi was written by Igbo Clifford Chimaizuobi and Nwaru Favour and had a celebrity cast like Sonia Ogene, Chuma Mmeka, Dr. Gloria Ernest-Samuel, Precious Declan, Nonso Richard Odimega, and Sandra Nweke.
The movie tells the story of Dinobi, a young Nigerian student in his early 20s, and his struggle through life, surviving an abusive stepmother, Fedora, and a UK-based medical doctor dad, Dr. Christopher.
He would eventually scale through, thanks to his love interest, Kemi, and his lecturer. Dinobi will do menial jobs, participate in competitions, get arrested, and eventually make you see life through other lenses.
While speaking on the movie, the producer Izu Okafor said he wasn’t scared of making a debut as a producer, he however didn’t know what to expect and has learned a lot on what the industry is about.
‘Dinobi is my first production. We got the story in 2021 and have been working on other projects since then.
The Imo International Film Festival is coming soon and as an Imo born, I decided we should have a feature movie that was shot and produced in Imo State.
It wasn’t easy, pre-production, production, and post-production took several months and of course, as a debut producer, I didn’t know exactly what to expect.
We did it for you, for us, and for everyone else! Huge thanks to the cast, crew, investors, and everyone who supported this project in any way.
Dinobi is coming to your screens in the next few weeks!’
