Nollywood actress Uche Jumbo has released After The Proposal on DVD, her 13th movie as an executive producer.
The movie, which has a mixed assemblage of new and old hands in the industry was released last week and is said to be recording an impressive sales figure.
It features Patience ‘Mama Gee’ Ozokwor, Belinda Effah, Keira Haywatch, Theresa Edem, Anthony Monjaro, Shan Faqua and Uche Jombo herself.
The movie has Desmond Elliots as the director. It tells the story of a widow (Patience Ozokwor) blessed with three daughters and no son, who couldn’t wait for one of her daughters to bring home a man. When Kenneth (Anthony Monjaro) finally proposes to Mary (Uche Jombo) after eight years of courtship, his excitement of getting married was short-lived when the demands from the elders of the village threatened to prevent the marriage as he sets out to purchase the endless items on her price list. The many twists and turns of the comic film has earned it a nomination in the African International Film Festival, AFRIFF 2014.
Uche won Best Actress award at the film festival last year for her role in Lies Men Tell.
