Produced by Adonaija Owiriwa and Izu Ojukwu, and directed by Ojukwu, the story in the film is told from two points of view: that of a young pregnant woman, and that of her husband, a soldier accused of being involved in the 1976 military coup and assassination of General Murtala Mohammed.


"76" has also been selected in the Grolsch People’s Choice award at Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

Past winners of this award include Oscar winning movies like 2015’s "Room," the box office hit "Slumdog Millionaire," "12 Years A Slave" among others.

'76' celebrates the quality of the true African woman by exploring the usually invisible pain of a soldier's wife; it highlights the enduring Nigerian cultural values of courage, resilience, patience, loyalty, faith and family. It is visually pure, emotionally engaging and amorously therapeutic.

The anticipated movie stars talented actors like Ramsey Nouah, Rita Dominic, Ibinabo Fiberesima, Chidi Mokeme, Memry Savanhu, Adonijah Owuruwa, Daniel K. Daniel, Nelly Ekwereogu and Shuaibu Ebenehi Adams.

There was recently a special screening for former Nigerian Army general, Olusegun Obasanjo, who was President of Nigeria from 1999 to 2007.
