EbonyLife TV is set to present a Biyi Bandela star studded movie 'Fifty.'

The upcoming movie stars top talented Nollywood actors like Ireti Doyle, Dakore Akande, Nse Ikpe Etim and Omoni Oboli.

'Fifty' pushes  boundaries to uncover the lives of Lagos’ contemporary and glamorous upper class, sharing the world of four women as they rise above adversity to stand as they truly are; modern African women. Women of substance, class and values.


'Fifty' captures a few pivotal days in the lives of four Nigeria women at the pinnacle of their careers. Meet Tola, Elizabeth, Maria and Kate four friends forced at midlife to take inventory of their personal lives, while juggling careers and family against the sprawling backdrops of the upper middle-class neighbourhoods of Ikoyi and Victoria Island in Lagos.

Tola is a reality TV star whose marriage to lawyer Kunle never stood a chance thanks to an invidious family secret.


Elizabeth is a celebrated obstetrician whose penchant for younger men has estranged her from her daughter.

Forty-nine year-old Maria has an affair with a married man that results in an unexpected pregnancy and Kate’s battle with a life-threatening illness has plunged her into religious obsession.

The upcoming film features beats from King Sunny Ade, titan Femi Kuti, German-Nigerian wunderkind singer-songwriter Nneka who also features in movie alongside Tiwa Savage and Waje.

'Fifty' is executive produced by MO Abudu, directed by Biyi Bandele, produced by Tope Oshin Ogun, with Malcom McLean as director of photography.

'Fifty' hits cinemas December 18.
