Mikel Obi and Genevieve Nnaji Co-Star in New Movie: The Journey



Guess what?…Guess who?….Chelsea football star, Mikel Obi has made his Nollywood debut.

Weeks after photos surfaced online, showing the Nigerian soccer star with Genevieve in South Africa, we can now confirm that Mikel was actually in SA to star in an inspirational new movie alongside superstar actress Genevieve Nnaji.

The new movie is titled The Journey, and we can confirm it’s sponsored by Nigeria’s leading malt brand Amstel Malta.

The Journey centres on the superstars’ journey to success; how they started out, the story of their challenges and the glory of where they are now.

The movie is to be premiered at the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards on the 8th of March, 2013.

Going by the trailer, this movie is definitely a must-watch.
