Nollywho – Funke Akindele’s “Omo Ghetto” Is Not Your Mate!

What is not to love about Omo Ghetto?

Funke Akindele, through her production company Scene One Productions, revives her start making turn as Lefty, one half of a twin unit that is separated at birth and reunited as adults after living vastly different lives. Revisiting a beloved film can be disastrous for film makers but Funke Akindele manages to find her balance, not only as a lead playing two roles, but also as a director and a casting director. Under her tutelage, actors like Chioma Akpotha and Zubby Michael reinvent themselves and give star making turn in a film that is family friendly yet very exciting. And with more than 700 million naira in the bank, it is clear the people voted with their wallets that this was bar none, the best film of the year.
