Biola Alabi’s Banana Island Ghost is a comedy movie about a ghost that is scared to go to heaven because he doesn’t have a soul mate so he convinces God to give him three days to fall in love. He is paired with cantankerous firecracker- Chigul as Ijeoma – who will do anything to save her father’s house in Banana Island from the bank coming to reclaim it in three days. The two of them must first survive each other, then learn to work together and eventually fall in love, to see their destinies unfold.
The movie trailer opens with Chigul, a Nigerian comedian, singer and actress, known for her accents and comedic characters praying to God to “do something millionish and mansionlike” in her life, because “the hustool is real.” The movie appears to have in adequate doses, comedy, gunshot action, gambling in a casino, some taekwondo fight and some touch of Indian spice. Already premiered, this movie will be showing on the big screen in cinemas across Nigeria from August 4, 2017.
