This is the first time in Nollywood that a movie will feature such an ensemble cast.

Chief Daddy tells the story of billionaire industrialist Chief Beecroft, a flamboyant benefactor to a large extended family of relatives, household staff and assorted mistresses. Chief lives large, like there’s no tomorrow, until the day he dies suddenly and the ‘bullion van’ stops! What’s in his will and who gets all that money? What happens next will surprise you, as Chief Daddy has the last laugh from beyond the grave.

Linda Ejiofor plays the role of Chief’s unofficial PA with a secret key to Chief Daddy’s affections. Ini Edo plays the role of the exciting mistress and secret baby mama who needs to secure her cashflow. Shaffy Bello plays the role of the hidden second wife who now wants to take her rightful place. Chigul plays the role of Chinelo Ubani, aka Chuchu; co-owner of a failing business with an incompetent partner played by Nedu – in need of a big payday. Joke Silva plays the role of Kemi Beecroft, aka Lady Kay; haughty, high-society wife and former mistress of Chief Daddy, determined to secure her only son’s future.

Talk about drama!

The movie was written by Bode Asiyanbi and the producers are Temidayo Abudu and Queens Martins.

Chief Daddy is scheduled for a Christmas release.
