The First Lady is a comic drama and the story of a street girl and her pimp told with intrigue, twists and turns of street elements that attest to the versatility of Omoni as an actress.

A heir to an empire, Kenechi, is transformed into a child by an overly ambitious uncle who wants the empire to himself. Bound by a shared destiny, Michelle finds that she might be doing the rescuing until she realises there’s no escaping her pimp (Obama), who would do anything to keep her as his First Lady.

The movie also stars Chinedu Ikedieze, Joseph Benjamin, Alexx Ekubo, Yvonne Jegede, Udoka Oyeka and Tony Monjaro.

      Of course I’ll watch it….and yes, it’ll probably give me a headache.

      Have you seen the trailer for “The Perfect Guy”? That’s whatyou call a twist….not two parallel storylines in one movie.

    How do you move from being Mrs. Elliot to this??? Focus is key in this industry, take learnings from one movie and do better in another not move on to a totally different angle with 2 story lines in one! Please dont get me started on versatility jor! First Lady, Obama, as in really???

      It’s called being VERSATILE!! it prevents actors from getting typecast in the same damn role OVER AND OVER AND OVER….. it showcases how multidimensional and multifaceted the actors can be in their acting. something NOLLYWOOD needs more of.
