Elina: Kalu Ikeagwu, Jibola Dabo attend premiere | The Nation News

By Olaitan Ganiu


Kalu Ikeagwu and Jibola Dabo were two of the famous faces at the premiere of Editha Chiewuzie’s new film, Elina.

The premiere took place at the Silverbird cinema and also had other cast members of the movie including Winner Edward and Felix Omokhodion in attendance.

On Friday, May 21, the film hit cinemas across the country.

On the inspiration behind the movie, Editha Chiewuzie says Elina was borne out of her desire to unravel the little mistakes parents make that cause them lifetime pains.


“Many times, I come across parents, especially mothers being so careless with their children. You see some women instead of holding their children’s hands while crossing a major road; allow them to cross alone. You see a mother carelessly leaving her child in the custody of neighbours, friends, or even someone she hardly knows. Some even leave their child or children inside the car, locked or unlocked, to go get something. This is the story of Elina,” she states.

Directed by Ambrose Tobias Udeh, Elina narrates the story of an 11-year-old child, Elina, who accompanies her mother to an eatery but ends up being kidnapped by an unidentified man. For 16 years, Elina remains missing. In fact, her parents have given up on her, thinking she’s dead. However, fate smiles on now grown-up Elina, as she finally reunites with her family. But this is after recording some deaths in her name and ultimately serving prison sentence.
