Following the success of the Nigerian limited series, ‘Blood Sisters’, EbonyLife has announced a new film titled ‘A Sunday Affair’, to debut on Netflix this year.
A Sunday Affair follows the story of two best friends, Uche and Toyin, who fall in love with Sunday – a charming, yet flawed eligible bachelor caught up in an unenviable dilemma. A love triangle ensues, with each woman none the wiser they are dating the same man. However, Sunday has a problem, who does he choose?
Written by Darrel Bristow-Bovey and directed by Walter Taylaur, the film stars award-winning Nigerian actress Nse Ikpe-Etim, Dakore Egbuson-Akande and Oris Erhuero as Sunday. The rest of the cast includes Alexx Ekubo, Uzor Osimpkpa, Chris Iheuwa and Hilda Dokubo.
Speaking on the film, Mo Abudu, CEO of EbonyLife Media and executive producer, said, “A Sunday Affair is an idea that’s been playing around in my head for nearly ten years. It has many layers of richness to the story, which I love, and I hope audiences see this as an evergreen classic and watch the film over and over again. The film is thoughtful about human desire, friendships and sacrifice. It shows emotions and the rollercoaster of love through superb performances.”
Also commenting, Heidi Uys, Creative Producer, EbonyLife Media, said, “We’ve had so many conversations about the complexity of love and whether it’s possible to love more than one person and to love as much as the other. With these amazing actors, this film gives a new meaning to the popular phrase ‘it’s complicated.'”
EbonyLife Media will host the World Premiere of the movie in Lagos, Nigeria, on 12th February 2023 as a valentine’s special event.
‘A Sunday Affair’ will premiere globally on Netflix on 14 February 2023.
