Mike Ezuruonye's directorial debut gets a release date

Mike Ezuruonye makes his directorial debut with "Divorce not Allowed," a romantic comedy starring Bolanle Ninalowo, Iyabo Ojo and Salami Rotimi.

Described by the filmmaker as a comedy film with a strong message on relationships and family, "Divorce Not Allowed" arrives cinemas on April 13.

The movie stars Nollywood actors such as Bolanle Ninalowo, Iyabo Ojo, Angela Okorie, Eniola Badmus, Salami Rotimi and Ezuruonye.

The movie explores issues faced by young couples in marriages and how their resolutions sometimes threaten to shake the foundation of their love.

Speaking to Pulse Nigeria in 2017, Mike Ezuruonye said that he isn't a fan of buffoonery, so he is making a different kind of comedy.

"I'm not a fan of buffoonery. Even if it's comedy, it has to have a message to it, which is what we did with "Divorce? Not Allowed."

"Divorce not Allowed" comes after Ezuruonye's self-produced comedy movie "Brother Jekwu," which reportedly grossed 20 million naira in 10 days.

Mike Ezuruonye has starred in some of Nollywood's most popular movies and is also one of fans' favourite.

He has starred in films like "Excess Luggage," "Broken Marriage," "Critical Decision," "Native Son," "Unforgivable" among others.
