Omoni Oboli’s feminist political drama, Love is War, is joining The Set Up as Netflix’s Nollywood lockdown offerings. The drama, a joint production between Oboli’s Dioni Visions and Inkblot Productions, stars Oboli and Richard Mofe-Damijo as a couple battling for the Ondo state governorship seat.
Written by Inkblot Production co-founder, Chinaza Onuzo (Up North, New Money), the story follows Hankuri and Dimeji Phillips, a lovely couple who are forced to contest a gubernatorial election against each other. Hankuri, an upstanding woman, has been handpicked by the president to represent his party, but after a fight with a top party member, Otunba, her campaign takes a diabolical twist.
Love is War starts playing on Netflix from April 29, 2020. The film stars Akin Lewis, Femi Branch, Toke Makinwa, Yemi Blaq, Jide Kosoko, and Shaffy Bello.
