Adesola Ade-Unuigbe



The CEOHilda Dokubo, Wale Ojo, Jimmy Jean Louis, Angelique Kidjo, Lala Akindoju, Peter King, Nico Panagio, Aurelie Eliam and many more star in Kunle Afolayan’s next movie ‘The CEO’.

It already sounds like it’s going to be a thrilling and captivating movie from the synopsis provided.

Synopsis: TransWire Communications is a global phone network with major operation in Nigeria. The CEO, an expatriate, has retired hence the Global Chairman has decided to send five nominees amongst his most senior level staff across Africa on a Leadership course in order to determine which one to appoint as the new CEO of Nigeria.

Kola Alabi: Nigerian, male, playboy, charming
Jomo Wangai: Kenyan, male, reserved; troubled
Eloise Toure: Ivorian, female, attractive, tenacious
Yasmin Raggi: Moroccan, female, beautiful, secretive
Riikard Van Outen: South African, white, male, unassuming, ambitious

All five arrive from their respective destinations and check into the beach resort where the course is holding.  Although they all appear cordial and chummy with each other, they all know what is at stake – they each desperately want the CEO’s chair.  And to this purpose, they attempt to covertly outdo one another throughout the duration of the course.

    Abi, nothing left to the imagination! The synopsis does sound interesting though. Kudos to you Mr. Afolayan and doing things right. So who wrote this script?

    Look ehn…If Kunle Afolayan writes a movie script where 2 people just recite the entire Psalm 119 to each other, I will watch.

    He’s worth every second of my attention I give to his movies. Can’t wait to see this!

      Very true. I will be at the cinema to see this. Interesting synopsis, I hope he works on the predictability of the killer, unlike that of October 1st. I was able to guess the killer easily and was disappointed that I was right.

    Egbon Tade, twale sir!!
    Diamond Ring and Hostages are still benchmarks in the industry.
    Maximum respect to men and women who never sold their talent and blessed us in their own little way. They might not have made all the cash but they were true to their craft.

    For standing for excellence in the face of tempting mediocrity, I will always support Kunle Afolayan. I will go see this at the cinema when it arrives.
    For standing up to the bullying tactic of Globacom and their chairman, I will always remain a fan.

    tade ogidan and tunde kelani are the best filmmakes. no wonder kunle is doing well. he’s learning from the best. “Hostages” by tade ogidan was one of the best movies to ever come out from nigeria, people often forget that movie. i remember it was even made into a tv show when i was younger.

    I used to like afolayan’s movies but the hoarding is too much, never available for purchase,iroko or netflix until after 3 yrs.i get that the piracy is frustrating,but @ least make it available for people that want to pay.not like it is in the cinema in the village I live here in south dakota

    I don’t blame Kunle for hoarding his movies. There is no law protecting intellectual property in Nigeria and in this industry, the fear of piracy is the beginning of wisdom.
