Jade Osiberu’s “Isoken” milks a very familiar plot but the magic is in the execution. She is smart and intelligent from pre-production to post-production, she is quite the triple threat, Jade writes directs and produces “Isoken” and her DNA is all over this project. Isoken enjoys strong themes of feminism, love, and societal resistance. Isoken is Jade’s cinematic resistance to societal pressure. It resists the pressure for marriage.

The producers of the anticipated movie, Peju Fadirepo and Adesuwa Onyenokwe noted that the project was not just a movie but a movement, adding that the film will be extremely entertaining and hilarious without losing its salient and timely message.
