‘Bling Lagosians’ tells the story of the Holloways. The family Patriarch, Akin Holloway (Gbenga Titiloye) struggles to keep the family’s inherited wealth and company afloat having to be lavish with the (old) money he had inherited. His equally extravagant wife, Mopelola (Elvina Ibru) is not left out of the ‘fun’ as her splurging tendencies also get the better of her.
Otherwise, how do we explain a woman agitating to spend more than she spent on her 50th birthday on her 51st just to show off to her friends? Especially when the family patriarch says there is no money and they are living in dangerous times.
The movie directed by award-winning stage play director Bolanle Austen-Peters incorporates an impressive list of actors such as Elvina Ibru, Gbenga Titiloye, Osas Ighodaro-Ajibade, Alex Ekubo, Sharon Ooja, Monalisa Chinda, and Toyin Abraham.
