Coming on the heels of plans to premiere TOBI, a Nigerian movie shot in New York in Nigerian cinemas, the C.E.O/MD, AG models, Ejiro Jaloghor popularly known as Crozz has lauded the production team of the movie, describing it as a positive step for the Nigerian movie industry.
In a chat with Crozz in Lagos, he made it clear that it was time for Nigeria to take advantage of the presence of Nigerians in the Diaspora especially its professionals to raise the bar of quality and content for Nigerian movies.
“I have seen the trailer of the movie and I am genuinely impressed with what I saw. I recently learnt that the lead cast of the movie also doubles as an American model besides being an actor. I am a model and I know how hectic our schedules could get. This is a good one for international modeling and I hope Nigeria continues to live up to its tag as the ‘giant of Africa. I'm really looking forward to the movie,” Crozz affirmed.
Crozz emerged Nigerian Model Achievers Awards (NMAA)’s Most Outstanding Runway Model (male) in 2011 and has continued to represent the country in different facets.
In this movie, an American lead cast (Mark Williams) and a cross section of other foreign and Nigerian actors come take centre stage as Nigeria’s U.S-based producer, Emmanuel Ijeh delivers a movie that takes a giant leap into the halls of Hollywood yet retaining its Nigerian essence.
TOBI revolves around the story of a 21-year-old adult who gets caught in the familiar web of dark influences that drive him towards the cliff of self destruction. The movie also offers a peek into how deep the bond of brotherhood goes and the sacrifices that come with it.
The movie has been scheduled to premiere in Nigerian cinemas on April 13, 2012 and will feature a red carpet premiere in Lagos.
The TOBI trailer is presently available on tobithemovie.com and on its Facebook page, TOBI.
