This is the first time in Nollywood that a movie will feature such an ensemble cast.

Chief Daddy tells the story of billionaire industrialist Chief Beecroft, a flamboyant benefactor to a large extended family of relatives, household staff and assorted mistresses. Chief lives large, like there’s no tomorrow, until the day he dies suddenly and the ‘bullion van’ stops! What’s in his will and who gets all that money? What happens next will surprise you, as Chief Daddy has the last laugh from beyond the grave.

Linda Ejiofor plays the role of Chief’s unofficial PA with a secret key to Chief Daddy’s affections. Ini Edo plays the role of the exciting mistress and secret baby mama who needs to secure her cashflow. Shaffy Bello plays the role of the hidden second wife who now wants to take her rightful place. Chigul plays the role of Chinelo Ubani, aka Chuchu; co-owner of a failing business with an incompetent partner played by Nedu – in need of a big payday. Joke Silva plays the role of Kemi Beecroft, aka Lady Kay; haughty, high-society wife and former mistress of Chief Daddy, determined to secure her only son’s future.

Talk about drama!

The movie was written by Bode Asiyanbi and the producers are Temidayo Abudu and Queens Martins.

Chief Daddy is scheduled for a Christmas release.

    Repeat work with the same director. Kudos Ebony Life. That’s the kind of growth we like to see. Hope the script is good because if it is, the Christmas box office shall be yours.

    Quality please over quantity. I love most of the actors listed above but I want a movie that is unique abi am I asking for too much?

    Sounds good, but I fear that too big an ensemble usually leaves the movie going in different directions and leading to nowhere. Best wishes tho.

    Well one out of ten ain’t bad. This time round, it looks like they are getting relationship building right Hope they figure out the script and the casting is on point as then we are not likely to notice the “stars. “ And the reality is that Nollywood today does not have super stars, do they probably need an ensemble to try and reach many people. When all is said and done, until they no longer make money ie, we stop buying, this shall continue.

    Same old crowded movie. I just don’t feel these contrived movies. That will be all over the place. Please give me a movie with village scenes or about pre colonialism with an austere feel and my attention is captured. Don’t have a stomach for money missroad rich man with several wives and girlfriends and garrish hair, loud makeup, suvs, mercedez cars and the same old same old. Thanks but no thanks.
