Nigerian film producer Moses Inwang has released the trailer for “Lockdown”, billed to hit cinemas across the country on 28th May.
The trailer begins with the arrival of a foreign national to Lagos state. What follows is anxiety and chaos as he is believed to have contracted COVID-19.
It also sees Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, who heads a hospital in the film, reflecting on the struggles health workers had to face in a bid to respond to the pandemic. Amid the ensuing drama and chaos, the police shut the hospital to resort to normalcy.
The star-studded movie features several heavyweights including Sola Sobowale, Emem Inwang, Chioma Akpotha, Tony Umez and Deyemi Okanlawon.
Others are Ini Dima-Okojie, Jide Kene Achifusi (Swanky JKA), Nobert Young and Josh 2 Funny. Yomi Black, BamBam, Ada Ameh, Ben Touitou and Charles Awurum also features in the film.

In an Instagram post on Wednesday, Inwang revealed that the movie was originally scheduled for a premiere at the NollywoodWeek Paris Film Festival. Due to post-production delay, the project will now be seen in Cinemas
“It saddens me to announce that my latest film, Lockdown, will no longer open or premiere at the NollywoodWeek Paris Film Festival due to a delay in post-production,” he wrote.
It’s a disappointing situation for me given how highly I regard the festival and how much people in the diaspora would have loved this film because of its timely theme, one that is affecting everyone worldwide.
“I’ve had a couple of films in selection in previous editions. It would have been a great honour to open the festival this time.”
