While speaking about the production of the film, the ‘Foreigner’s God’ director expresses his excitement to work on this project while also speaking about how he feels about women in the 70s.
“I’ve always been intrigued by the lives of women in the 70s, what it felt like at that time. I wanted to approach the subject matter musically, but also to explore some really important themes like self-image, ambition, and the complexities of relationships.”
The always radiant Omotola Jolade Ekeinde will take the lead role in ‘Singing Sin’ alongside Toke Makinwa.
Omotola Jolade, speaking about the role stated how she’s happy to be a part of the project because it is something she’s eager to champion, considering the women’s inclusivity it has.
“I am always happy to see projects that are women inclusive, both in front and behind the camera and that keep pushing the envelope with the stories they tell. These are the stories that I have always championed and will continue to champion. And with Singing Sin, we have an opportunity to dive into that world, a world controlled by women, each with their different journeys.”
