According to a statement sent to Sunday Scoop, the movie tells the story of two Muslim women who are married to two best friends. Their loyalty and friendship got tested and no matter how they looked at it, one party felt robbed and betrayed by the other, threatening to tear apart an enduring friendship from childhood, and test their faith as devout Muslims.”
Other actors in the movie include Paul Utomi, Akeem Ogara and Shushu Abubakar, with special appearances by Nyma Akashat-Zibiri and Sulaiman Aledeh.
A fashion designer and the executive director of the movie, Shareefah Abiola-Andu, noted that the new projected afforded her the opportunity to venture into new territories.
Abiola-Andu, who is the also the face behind Islamic merchandising brand, Arabel, said, “We are beyond excited to constantly find new expressions to elevate the beauty of Islam and celebrate our culture. This movie provides a new opportunity for us to do what we have been known for, this time through the lens of filmmaking. Indeed, there is a nexus between fashion and film, so this is not a totally strange terrain for us. I believe everyone will be proud of what we have created.”
