Fast rising actress, Nuella Njubigbo, has unraveled the mystery behind the quest for power, fame and stardom in the Nigerian movie industry, courtesy of her debut movie as producer, Jujuwood.
According to Nuella, Jujuwood, directed by Tchidi Chikere, is a movie about girls in the entertainment world, their lust for fame and power and the length they are willing to go to be famous.
“The journey to stardom is filled with intense drama and competition. My new film, Jujuwood, is all about controversial exploration of bitter truths,” she told P.M.NEWS Showbiz Trends.
With a celebrated cast that include Funke Akindele, Halima Abubakar, Ruth Kadiri and Nuella herself, the movie, the actress said, will surely get its own share of attention.
“This movie promises to take you through the hassles of being an up and coming act in Nollywood. It also tells the untold secret of how low some starlets will stoop just to achieve their big dreams of being celebrities. It is an exposé on the thrills and ills of the movie industry. It is a satire that is comically told but filled with lessons for those whose eyes are fixed on stardom,” explained Nuella, already doing her national service in Ogwashi- Uku, Delta State.
Nuella, a graduate of Government and Public Administration from the Imo Sate University is first of all a screen writer then an actress and a producer.
She first came into Nollywood as a script writer in 2005 before making her debut as an actress in the movie Royal Destiny. She has also featured in many movies including Another Level, Beautiful Colour, Tears of a Prince, Evil Project, Money Never Sleeps and a host of others. Jujuwood is slated for release in April.
