A few months ago, we learnt that Toyin Abraham and Timini Egbuson will be starring in Niyi Akinmolayan’s upcoming film, Elevator Baby. Given that Toyin Abraham is one of Nollywood’s most bankable stars, we were very excited, and now, we’ve finally gotten a trailer.
Directed by Akay Mason, Elevator Baby follows the story of Dare (Egbuson), a privileged young man with a fiery temper, who gets stuck in an elevator with a semi-literate pregnant woman (Abraham). As she goes into labour in the lift, Dare is left with no choice but to try and save both mother and child.
The trailer reveals the pressures Dare is facing in his personal life, while showing the gross incompetence of Nigerian staff — from the security guards to those in charge of maintenance. Nollywood films tend to have an overarching moral message, and it seems as though this will be no different.
Elevator Baby will be available in cinemas nationwide from October 11.
