"Payday" follows the story of two best friends and flatmates, Paul and Ortega, who just before they are about to renew their yearly rent, their Landlord dies very suddenly, and seemingly without any heir apparent.
The young men seize upon the unfortunate but good opportunity to ‘enjoy’ a little.
They go on an expensive night out. Unfortunately, the Landlord’s daughter turns up the following morning and gives the boys 24-hour notice to pay up or quit.
They embark on an overnight scheme to recover the rent, leading to a dangerous encounter with an eccentric drug baron, a desperate robbery attempt, a gambling adventure, and an ego war with the neighbourhood bully, Orlando.
All the while they were hounded by Ngozi, the neighbourhood gossip, who just wants a piece of the action.
"Payday" is produced by Orwi Manny Ameh, written and directed by Cheta Chukwu
