On what “Moms at War” is about
You know how mothers are; constantly aggressive and needing their children to be to finish everything. So “Mothers at War” is around two moms who live in a similar neighborhood, however loathed each other.
One felt that the other was a town young lady who just got into cash and isn’t fit to be in the public arena with them. Yet, both their children adventitiously go to a similar school and there was an opposition that was improved the situation the children, and both were the highest point of their class.
It boiled down to one of them winning the opposition and the moms just went insane, doing all kind of shenanigans. It’s an account of kinship, sisterhood, and holding regardless of everything.
I believe it’s a story that is critical in the public eye today. Since many individuals get a kick out of the chance to push the account that ladies are continually battling each other and that they can never cooperate.
Yet, I generally say that when ladies cooperate, we resemble a power that no one can stop.
On what rouses her films
I tend to watch individuals a great deal. When I am with a gathering of individuals, I’m continually watching them. I’m tuning in to them. I am attempting to recognize what influences individuals to tick.
So one way or the other, those things become an integral factor in my stories and in my movies. Be that as it may, what will be will be, you need to get your motivation from some place.
On casting for “Moms at War”
I didn’t compose the story. It was composed by Naz Onuzo, who is likewise my accomplice on the task. You know how when you read a story [and] you simply observe certain individuals in it. I simply read it and I thought Funke Akindele was awesome for the character.
I played nearby her [and] everybody knows how insane Funke is, and that specific character is only an insane young lady. She is a cheerful individual.
She played it exceptionally well and I am upbeat we cast her for that part. Michelle Dede was my companion [in the film] – as stuck up as my character was in the film, and it was extraordinary.
Yul Edochie, [it was my] first time working with him. I had never worked with him as a performing artist, I had never worked with him as an executive. Furthermore, I think he was simply stunning.
He is the sort of individual that just tunes in. On the off chance that you let him know “this is the manner by which I need it,” he’s much the same as “alright executive,” and he does it precisely how you need it. I can hardly wait for anyone’s viewing pleasure the motion picture.
