Director-Jade Osiberu’s first film, ISOKEN was premiered on Wednesday, 24th May 2017 at London’s Leicester Square–ahead of tomorrow’s cinema release across the UK.
The premiere was attended by Director-Jade Osiberu and actors-Dakore Akande, Marc Rhys, Funke Akindele and other cast members.
In a review of the movie, Chris-Vincent wrote:
“On the back of excellent talents, particularly the brilliant performance from Kevin, ISOKEN succeeds in dishing out different layers of laughter—but sometimes shoddily routs that with vapid comedy.
For instance, it was extensively preposterous that the film attempted to erect laughter in Isoken’s kitchen, asserting that the educated cosmopolitan woman suddenly could not read and distinguish between a fully branded washing starch powder and the one used for cooking, leading her to pour a washing powder into her food.
As a debut film by Jade Osiberu, ISOKEN is brilliant with its romance and comedy synthesis—keeping to its romantic plot coated with comedy and not presenting dozens of detached comedy chops—the hallmark of many Nollywood romantic comedies.”
ISOKEN will be showing in the following UK Cinemas from May 26:
