Watch The Official Trailer of Kunle Afolayan’s The Tribunal

The Tribunal is a drama that focuses on the discrimination albinos face in the Nigerian society. This is a Kunle Afolayan’s film, expect a good storyline, acting, directing and cinematography. Its production is a collaborative effort of Kunle Afolayan’s production company – Golden Effect Pictures and Africa Magic Films.

The Tribunal focuses on Ifeanyi, played by Damilola Ogunsi and Jimi Disu, played by Funsho Adeolu. Ifeanyi, a senior banking officer, feels his employers fired him because he is an albino. Ifeanyi has a friend Tanwa Bello, played by Ade Laoye, who is a young and enthusiastic lawyer.

Jimi Disu used to be a highly respected lawyer and had co-established one of the top law firms in Lagos some years back. After a series of personal challenges, he lost everything including his sense of direction.

He now works as a ‘charge and bail’ lawyer with no greater purpose.

Wanting justice for her friend, Tanwa approached Jimi Disu and asked him to represent Ifeanyi against his former employers. He initially refused, but I am guessing she was enthusiastically persistent.

How Mr. Disu will beat his inner demons and win such an important case and maybe revive his career is something I am looking forward to.

You can watch The Tribunal trailer below:

The Tribunal stars some of Nollywood classic actors including Omotola Jalade, Nobert Young, and Funsho Adeolu. Other cast members are Carol King, Damilola Ogunsi, Ade Laoye and Bimbo Manuel. Kunle Afolayan produced and directed The Tribunal and while Tunde Babalola wrote it.

This is the Omotola’s second movie this year. And just like Alter Ego, it focuses on a social issue in Nigeria. But unlike in Alter Ego, where she plays the hero part, she is the villain here.

The Tribunal will be in cinemas in Nigeria and Accra, Ghana from September 1, 2017. It is surely one of the movies I am looking forward to seeing this September.

Tell me what you think of the trailer in the comment section.
