The premiere for “Man of God”, Bolanle Austen-Peters‘ first Netflix original held on the eventing of Saturday, April 9th in Lagos, with guests coming through with their own interpretation of the “Heavenly Glam” theme.
The movie follows the story of Samuel Obalolu, the first son of a strict disciplinarian pastor who finally “liberates himself” from his oppressed upbringing. He is hell-bent on shedding the facade of “the preacher’s son”. After a few failed relationships and heartbreaks later he ironically finds himself behind the pulpit with a wife he doesn’t love, a deep resentment born of the abuse of his upbringing and the skeletons of his past relationships threatening to upstage his success and ruin his life.
It stars Akah Nnani, Osas Ighodaro, Dorcas Shola Fapson, Olumide Oworu, Mawuli Gavor, Shawn Faqua, Prince Nelson Enwerem, Patrick Doyle, Ayo Mogaji, Eucharia Anunobi and many more.
