Few months after successfully putting When The Heart Lies on movie shelves, filmmaker, Vivian Ejike, is set to return with another movie, Silent Scandal. The thought provoking flick, according to Ejike, will be released on VCD and DVD soon in Nigeria, Europe, US and the rest of Africa. The movie, which revolves around the hidden and triangular love lives of a strict mother, her spoilt daughter and an indigent ‘playboy,’ featured top Nollywood stars such as Genevieve Nnaji, who played the lead role, Uche Jombo, Ebele Okaro, Ghanaian import , Michael Majid and a host of other up and coming acts. Speaking on the movie, Ejike, who runs Purple Pine Productions, informed that Silent Scandal, was painstakingly shot with hi-tech production equipment and thoroughly manned by tested professionals within and outside Nigeria. “It’s a contemporary movie that will blow the minds of viewers. Its also emotional, where a mother and her only daughter, unknowingly, are torn apart by the true love and lust of an indigent young man.” She described the movie as full of intrigues and suspense from start-to-finish. “With all sense of modesty, it’s another plus for Nollywood, especially now that the nation is preaching the gospel of re-branding. We believe so much in quality films and productions at Purple Pine and that is what this movie stands for,” the former banker said. Directed by a US-based-Nigerian filmmaker, the movie also featured a live Fashion Show by top Nigerian fashion, Zizi Cardow, with her elegant models showing on the runway. “We all had fun and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves while the production lasted. In fact, we worked like a family,” she enthused. Aside producing and financing the big budget movie, Ejike, with many years experience in Nollywood, also wrote and screen played the forthcoming movie, which will be distributed and marketed globally by Nollywood Distributions Company Limited, in collaboration with other major video outlets and marts.
