The much-anticipated film “Higher Crime,” will premiere in cinemas across Nigeria, Ghana, and French-speaking West Africa on June 14, 2024. Aniebiet Francis produced the film, and Uduakobong Patrick directed it.

This gripping drama follows the story of Tife, a prominent blogger. Enwongoabasi Ibom played the character who exposes a woman’s sexual assault. This revelation leads to a fierce legal battle with Jeffrey, a well-known philanthropist played by Femi Branch.

The film features a talented cast.

They include industry veterans like Femi Branch, Bimbo Akintola, and Keppy Ekpenyong. They starred alongside rising stars Enwongoabasi Ibom and Folashade Abimbola.

Femi Branch is known for his villainous role in the Disney-Kugali animated series “Iwaju.” He plays the dark character Jeffrey. Akintola is famous for her role in “93 Days,” and stars as Jeffrey’s loyal yet naive wife.

Ibom, a rising actress and social media influencer, plays Tife, the fearless blogger determined to seek justice. Nollywood legend Ekpenyong portrays Jeffrey’s lawyer who uses political connections to try to silence Tife. Newcomer Abimbola plays Ruby, another victim of abuse.

Aniebiet Francis produced the film under her production company, Amazing Arts Entertainment.

Known for her 2019 hit “The Final List,” Aniebiet Francis takes a more dramatic approach with “Higher Crime.” She addressed the issue of sexual assault, especially within families.

On social media, she shared the movie poster and announced the film’s release with a statement. It read, “Not all silence is golden.” She further commented, “This film is a testament to the power of storytelling and the importance of speaking truth to power.”

Tribe Nation Theatrical Distribution distributed “Higher Crime” globally.

It is a prominent Nigerian entertainment company. Tribe Nation started its operations in Nigeria in February 2023 and expanded internationally in December 2023. It has quickly become a significant player in the African entertainment industry.

Following successful releases like “The Other One” (L’autre Homme in French territories), the heist film “Charlie and the Boys” (Charlie et sa Bande in French territories), and the horror film “Trepidation”, Tribe Nation is set for further success with “Higher Crime.”

The film will be available in major cinema chains and independent theatres across Nigeria and West Africa starting June 14. It promises to captivate audiences with its compelling story and powerful performances.
