Nollywood actress, Dayo Amusa, is back with another blockbuster hit, titled Pathetic, which would be showing at the cinemas from March 24.
Dayo’s last effort, Unforgivable, showed the dexterity of the actress and helped cement her status as an A-list act in the industry.
The movie broke records and made sales far beyond many people thought it would.
Directed by Ike Nnaebue and produced by Dayo, Pathetic stars Bimbo Akintola, Wole Ojo, Dayo Amusa, Funsho Adeolu and Toyin Alausa, among others.
She described the production as a thrilling and insightful marital story intricately woven on the life of a famous celebrity.
The story revolves around Rita Shonibare, a renowned television star, who is caught in a web of confusion as she makes a compromise on her budding career so as to overcome her marital ordeals resulting from her wayward and inconsiderate husband, who explores her status to his own devious means.
Dayo said this is her best yet, adding: “Shooting this movie, for me, is more about passing a message and helping the world see the hidden struggles celebrities face, even with those they call family and friends.
“It is an attempt to share our struggles and also communicate a message to anyone going through such situations.”
