Nigerian producers and directors are truly making us proud both locally and internationally by always trying to create intriguing and suspense filled movies with story lines that keep you on the edge as well as also inspiring actors and actress to deliver their very best.

One director that recently caught our eyes is Niji Akanni, the award winning Nigerian film writer/director known for some of his famous works including Dangerous Twins, Playing Games and Narrow Path, has released another intriguing movie “Heroes and Zeros” about a man who is obsessed with a an actress and will do anything and everything to have her. The movie stars some of the biggest names in the African film industry including Nadia Buari, Olu Jacobs, Norbert Young, Tina Mba, Gabriel Afolayan, Akin Lewis and Bimbo Manuel.

The Official Movie Synopsis
The movie Heroes and Zeros tell the story of the destructive pursuance of Tonia (Nadia Buari) by Amos Fele (Bimbo Manuel). Amos was a wealthy director in the Nigerian film industry, now he lives in a dilapidated flat, doing occasional low paying TV commercials for nameless products. He’s a daily comic relief on the local soccer practice pitch – because he is 45 years old – and he nurses a new, insane dream of making it into the dollar-soaked world of international soccer. His unhappy marriage to Tinuke (Tina Mba), a junior banker, is unfortunately crumbling, especially after the death of their only child.

A boost to his sagging spirit comes when a big budget French-Nigerian film company appoints him as director. Shortly after, he is a celebrated genius by the press and top actors and producers begin to call him up for projects. To his wife’s distress, Amos re-establishes his wane reputation as a womanizer and becomes obsessed with Tonia, a beautiful actress of the Nigerian-French film project.  Ignoring repeated warnings by his best friend Nnamdi (Norbert Young), a psychology professor, Amos pursues his obsession with Tonia to his tragic end.

What will happen next? We’ll just have to wait and find out, when the movie premieres on Friday 31st August 2012 at the Silverbird Galleria, till then, view the behind the scenes shots and official trailer.

    Olu Jacobs, Bimbo Manuel, Akin Lewis, Norbert Young, Tina Mba all in one movie? Add my sweetheart Gabriel Afolaya *waves and blows kisses* into the mix and you have a movie I’m defitely going to see. Nadia Buhari is a such a beauty, the cameras and she doesnt over act like Mercy Johnson and Tonto Dike. Let’s go there Heroes and Zeros noni!
