Nollywood’s star, Lotachukwu Ugwu, is set to release her first feature film Now That We Are Married come this Sunday, the 5th of March. The new title is an Africa Magic original story that will premiere exclusively on DSTV’s Africa Magic showcase, channel 151, on Sunday at 9:30 p.m.

Now That We Are Married is the story of a young couple, who, like many new weds, are cautiously navigating their first year of marriage. They soon realise that “happily ever after” takes a lot of love and sacrifice. Will they survive the first year of marriage? Or will they realise that love isn’t enough?

The film is written, directed and produced by Lotachukwu Ugwu (With Abisola Afisat Yusuf serving as co-producer), and it is the third production from the Lota-led Cowrie Films house.
