Brother Jekwu is set in Kenya and Nigeria and stresses on the adventure of travelling abroad in search of greener pastures, love and the beauty of Africa.Directed by Charles Uwagbai, the comedy tells the story of a village man with native intelligence that is full of adventure, proud and conceited.
He is lucky to make it to Kenya on the bill of his corrupt cousin, where he gets lost in a tale of his adventure while exploring a new land and his encounter with other folks and two beautiful ladies led to the various comical scenes that add a twist to the story.
Ezuruonye stated after the glam premiere that Brother Jekwu is different from the regular comedy movie on sale.
He said: “Brother Jekwu highlights more on the fast rise of individuals seeking to leave their different homes in search of greener pastures.
“It also stresses on love and generally the art and aesthetics of Africa, while leaving the audience in amusement and tears.”
