Starring the fast-rising actors Efa Iwara and Tope Olowoniyan in leading roles, Love & Seclusion, is set during the pandemic and tells the story of a young woman, Tola, a young Lagos wife eager to have her first child during the quarantine. However, her husband isn’t on the same page about starting a family, leading to unexpected twists in their relationship. The cast ensemble also includes Inem King, Olanrewaju Ayanwale, Jaybo Charles, and Odiah Emmanuel.

The film’s premiere will be followed by a Q&A session with the cast and creative team, giving the audience a deeper insight into the making of the film and the inspiration behind its story.

While a global release date is yet to be confirmed, the production team has hinted that Love & Seclusion will get a wider release later in the year, after its successful run in the festival circuit. 

Nwani’s Conceptified Media recently achieved success at the Red Sea Souk market with their project, Fantastic Tale, which won the Red Sea Prize for production, a feat that underscores the company’s commitment to delivering exceptional storytelling.

Further details about the film’s release will be announced in the coming days.
