Adesua Etomi’s strong year, which has seen her grace the covers of Vogue magazine, appears to continue as star makes swashbuckling return to movie making in a trailer for Niyi Akinmolayan’s ‘The Set Up.’
Haven already piqued our interest in a teaser released a few weeks ago featuring heavyweight Nollywood regulars like Joke Silva, Jim Iyke, Dakore Egbuson, and of course, Adesuwa herself, we now have on our hands an even more exciting trailer that promises so much more.
In The Set Up, Adesua (Chike) assumes the role of a badass number two to a drug cartel Boss(Mutunrayo) who is also a wealthy hieress and the subject of a dodgy socialite’s love interest.
Chike finds herself in a bit of trouble when she’s hired by this socialite (played by Jim Iyke), to assist with his scheme to marry Motunrayo, who is set to inherit all of her father’s wealth following his recent passing.
The recently released trailer is tense and engaging, preparing us for a riveting, suspense-filled drama. And given the calibre of the cast and the accomplished director, we have complete faith in The Set Up and can’t wait for its August 9 release.
