Directed by Ikechukwu Onyeka, 4-1-Love is a romantic comedy about a young woman Uju Amadi who has lofty dreams of being a world renowned poet. She uses a pen name online and develops quite a large following. Her poems on love and healing are a balm to the soul of a wheel-chair-bound millionaire, Philip Obodo who is grieving the loss of his teenage daughter. The two have a special online connection but unfortunately Uju in reality is in a relationship with an internet conman Osazie, who specializes in online romantic scams where he cons women out of money. How Uju manages to juggle this love triangle is the premise on which this film is built.
It’s good to see Bovi play a character that doesn’t necessarily have to be funny. If he can pull it off, then maybe he might just have a career in acting.
No word yet on when the film will be released, but you can watch the trailer below.
