Plan B is the Kenyan rom-com to look forward to this year
LowlaDee Productions Africa has released a trailer for the movie Plan B set to premiere on February 14th 2019 on its YouTube channel.
The new romantic comedy features award-winning actresses such as Sarah Hassan (who also happens to be a producer on the film), Catherine Kamau Karanja and Daniel Etim Effiong, Lenana Kariba to mention a few.
The trailer teases the story of Lisa Waweru (Sarah Hassan) who finds out that she is pregnant after a one night stand with an unknown mysterious man. She teams up with her best friend Joyce (Catherine Kamau) to come up with a plan to make sure he pays for the baby’s upkeep.
The digital/TV film was written and directed by LowlaDee, whose real name is Dolapo Adeleke, a Nigerian filmmaker. She is popular for her web series This is it which stars Kenyan star Nick Mutuma. You can watch the series on the LowlaDee youtube channel.
This isn’t Kenya’s first rom-com, last year Catherine starred in the 2018 Disconnect which opened in cinemas for a month.
Last year was a great year for Kenyan films with movies such as Supa Modo, Rafiki and Watu Wote (which was nominated for an Oscar) premiering at international film festivals and many more great productions being nominated and winning at last year’s Kalasha awards.
This year has started with renewed vigour as eighty Kenyan actors participated in a two-day acting master class taught by Empire’s Morocco Omari. He was in Kenya over the weekend for the workshop that took place at Kenyatta University.
The movie Plan B will be available for free viewing on the LowlaDee Youtube channel from February 14th.
