Nigerian footballer and chelsea star, Mikel Obi , has made his Nollywood debut in grand style, starring in a movie alongside star actress Genevieve Nnaji.
Weeks after photos surfaced online showing Mikel and Genevieve hopping onto a jet in South Africa, reps have confirmed that Mikel was actually in SA starring in an inspirational new movie alongside Genny.
The new movie is titled ‘The Journey ‘, and is sponsored by Amstel Malta.
According to producers, ‘The Journey ‘ is centred around the superstars’ journey to success: how they started out, the story of their challenges and the glory of where they are now.
The movie will premiere at the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards on March 8, 2013.
