The film chronicles the journey of a pre-teen boy living in the ghettos of Nigeria, who is determined to see his dreams become reality irrespective of the challenges he encounters on the way.
Written and Directed Gbenga Salu, the film stars Kayode Olaiya aka Aderupoko, Chiedozie Nzeribe aka Sambasa, Ben Ogbeiwi, Aina Sodiq and introducing Omoboyede Moses.
Like me, you probably know Gbenga Salu more as a music video director than a filmmaker, but apparently, Mr. Salu knows his onions when it comes to filmmaking. His web series, 10:10 came third in the 2014 Afrinolly short film competition and he also directed a docu-drama titled, Slipping Through The Crack.
I’ll admit I’ve not seen any of Gbenga Salu’s filmmaking efforts, but with this trailer for Boy Breadwinner, I’ll sure be looking out for when the film drops as well as Mr. Salu’s filmmaking career as a whole.
Watch the trailer below.
