Review

Code Wilo opens when a powerful South-South High Chief Thompson (played by Gbenga Titiloye) is about to announce his daughter  Nimi (played by Bikiya Graham Douglas) as a candidate contesting for the state’s governorship election.

His past, however, hinders his ambition with an enemy within (played by Gabriel Afolayan). Also, his first son, who is a serving senator (played by Kalu Ikeagwu) makes life more difficult as he makes a play for his sister’s aspiration.

Directed by Mike-Steve Adeleye and produced by Hauwa Allahbura (The Eve), Code Wilo has a simple but yet catchy storyline.

It’s star-studded cast also didn’t fail to deliver. Eucharia Anunobi, who literally had a minor role to play but well delivered, Zack Orji and Alex Osifo brought to fore their wealth of experience in interpreting the roles of corrupt businessmen turned political godfathers.

Kalu Ikeagwu, who played the role of a greedy and prodigal son and Gabriel Afolayan, who played the role of the villain played two characters that impacted on the overall success of the film.
