For many industry people and movie lovers who have been waiting to see the delectable Nollywood actress, Bimbo Akintola on the screens, the wait will soon be over as the amiable and highly talented actress is back in a commendable musical Nollywood flick, Hoodrush.
Hoodrush is a musical thriller starring some of the best and emerging young talents in the industry, O.C Ukeje, Gabriel Afolayan, Chelsea Eze, Ijeoma Agu, Lilian Byoma and a host of others. The movie was directed by Dimeji Ajibola, a new comer in feature film who has done quite a number of production works for multinationals, media houses and has a number of short films to his credit. Hoodrush is produced by Flipsyde Studios where Dimeji is the CEO.
For Bimbo Akintola, starring in Hoodrush was just another step in the right direction as she has always been known for stellar performances in her roles.
The Theatre Arts graduate of University of Ibadan started her foray into acting when she starred in Owo Blow, a movie which announced her to industry watchers. It was therefore not surprising that she was already making money for herself, even before she left the university.
Following on the heels of Owo Blow, was an equally great performance in Out of Bounds, where she acted alongside prolific actor, Richard Mofe-Damijo (RMD). She further cemented her place as a force to reckon with when she starred in the award winning movie, the Mourning After, a movie that highlights the pains of widowhood.
