If you’d like to have an idea of the challenges African immigrants face in Europe, then you have to watch the new Nollywood movie Zero Deal, says Jennifer Omole, a Nollywood actress based in Spain.
Zero Deal is produced by Prince Ogugua Igwe, a Nigerian actor, scriptwriter and producer based in Germany.
Jennifer plays Jane in the movie. This is a young African girl who comes to Europe after being deceived by travelling agents that she’ll easily live a good life here. The agents take so much money from her in order to process her visa.
But once she arrives in Europe, things fall apart. Unable to find a job, Jane ends up becoming a prostitute and fraudster. These experiences transform her life tremendously, bringing out her exceptional human qualities.
“Jane is a very hard working girl that had to face some challenges like the part where she went with her German boyfriend to visit his mother and something happened,” Jennifer says.
She is happy that she had a chance of working on this movie. Jennifer recalls how lovely it was working with the team. “In fact we were like family. It was a privilege working with the producer Prince Ogugua Igwe, he is a man of his words,” she says.
Jennifer has featured in several movies including Set Time shot in Spain.
She is encouraging all lovers of African movies to go and watch Zero Deal. “It is a must watch movie, so don’t miss it,” she stresses.
The movie will be premiered in Freiburg, Germany on 24th September 2016.
