Chioma Chukwuka Stars In New Movie ‘Street Kid’

With the aim of addressing the ills of child labour and promoting education among children through the use of indigenous languages, a new movie, ‘Street Kid’ is set to hit the cinemas soon.

The child advocacy movie which is produced by Wale Muraina of R24 Media and directed by Tony Dudu, chronicles the story of how a backstreet kid who was forced into hawking by his step mother helped a rich kid to win a national schools’ spelling competition using Nigerian languages.

Speaking on the concept behind the movie, the director says that “knowledge provides the bridge upon which providence acts. In the movie, Afolabi found himself on the street due to no fault of his. He was denied access to education,  yet he helped Adewemimo, a rich and brilliant kid to win a national spelling competition in Nigerian indigenous languages.”

Ahead of its premiere, the movie has already received the endorsement of the Ooni of Ife,  Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi Ojaja II.

Featured in the movie are Chioma Chukwuka-Akpotha, Kalu Ikeagwu, Toyin Abraham Aimakhu, Jibola Dabo, Racheal Oniga, Patrick Doyle, Femi Durojaiye, introducing Joshua Ani as the street kid and Kenneth Enweremadu as the rich kid.

“There is the need to bring the plight of the poor kids on the street in Nigeria to the notice of every well-meaning Nigerian, setting a stage for all kinds of interventions,” Wale Muraina stated.

Meanwhile, producers of the movie have hailed the efforts of the First Lady, Hajia Aisha Buhari, towards restoring hope for Nigerian children through her Future Assured Programme which has earned her a United Nations ambassadorial status.

“We are confident that this movie will bring the kids on the lower rung of the ladder to the fore for them to be helped. The wife of the President, Hajia Aisha Buhari has done well in this regard with her Future Assured Programme,” Muraina said.
