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.

Biodun Stephen’s “Muri and Ko” Leads Nollywood Films At The Box Office

"Muri and Ko" Leads Nollywood Films At The Box Office | Fab.ng

The Nigerian box office witnessed a power shift this week, with Nollywood’s “Muri and Ko” making a surprising climb to the top. Let’s take a closer look at how these films are performing.

Debuting at number six, “Muri and Ko” defied expectations by surging to the coveted second-place position.

This heartwarming story follows the unexpected turn of events for a thief named Muri. After stealing a car, Muri discovers a child inside. Forced to go on the run from the police with a bounty on his head, an unlikely bond begins to form between Muri and the child.

This unique premise and strong performances seem to resonate with Nigerian audiences, propelling the film to financial success.

Hollywood’s action-comedy juggernaut, “Bad Boys: Ride or Die,” continues its reign at the top of the box office chart for the third week. This highly anticipated sequel to the popular “Bad Boys” franchise continues to rake in the big bucks. It grossed an impressive ₦100.8 million this week. With a total haul of ₦216.5 million so far, “Bad Boys: Ride or Die” shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

After holding the top spot for three consecutive weeks, “Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti,” a biographical drama chronicling the life of the famed Nigerian activist, has been dethroned by “Muri and Ko.”

This week, “Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti” only managed to secure ₦15 million. The movie dropped down to fourth place with a total gross of ₦156.5 million. While it seems to have lost its initial momentum, “Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti” still holds a respectable position at the box office.

The action thriller film, “Criminal,” took a hit this week. It experienced a significant drop in its position on the charts. Falling from fourth place to sixth place, “Criminal” brought in only ₦8.2 million this week. This brings its total gross to ₦45.7 million. The reason behind the film’s decline in popularity could be due to a combination of factors. These factors can be competition from new releases or negative word-of-mouth.

The Nigerian box office is a dynamic landscape, and these rankings can fluctuate from week to week. However, the success of “Muri and Ko” demonstrates the potential for Nollywood films to capture the hearts and wallets of Nigerian audiences. This can happen with captivating stories and strong performances.

Kanayo O. Kanayo Vows To Disrupt Any Film Set That Engages The Service Of Actress Angel Unigwe

Kanayo to disrupt any film set that engages Angel Unigwe | Fab.ng

Veteran Nollywood actor Kanayo O. Kanayo is raising a red flag about working with young actress Angel Unigwe. In a recent Instagram video, Kanayo expressed his frustration with Unigwe’s mother, who he believes is managing her daughter’s career unprofessionally.

Kanayo admitted hearing rumours about unprofessional behaviour but didn’t take them seriously until he had a personal experience. He had apparently cast Unigwe in a film and reached an agreement with her mother, the details of which weren’t mentioned. However, the agreement wasn’t honoured, prompting Kanayo’s public warning.

Furthermore, Kanayo urged other movie producers to avoid working with Angel Unigwe.

He went as far as saying he would disrupt filming sets if he saw her working on a production. This is a serious move in the Nollywood industry. Also, it highlights the level of Kanayo’s frustration and his desire to protect other producers from similar experiences.

He stated,

“I am making this video to protect the entertainment industry in Nigeria. A particular woman has been holding producers to ransoms and it is unfortunate it has happened to me. Unfortunately, she is Angel Unigwe’s mother. A contract is breached by every producer, orally or written and it’s all respected but I found out that immediately this woman takes money from you, everything changes. She took her daughter at 9 pm when the particular date that we agreed hadn’t expired. She came at 9 pm and took her daughter.

“I have gotten reports from people before it happened to me. This is a Clarion call to producers, I beg you in the name of professionalism, from this moment to the first day of July 2024 any set that employs the services of Angel Unigwe, I will come to that set and make sure filming doesn’t hold. Her mother has been threatening many producers.”
