Omo Ghetto the Saga, produced and directed by Funke Akindele-Bello and her husband, opened in Cinemas nationwide on Friday, 25 December, 2020.
It is a story about Lefty who, together with her squad from the ghetto, was always getting into one trouble or the other. As luck would have it, fortune smiled on Lefty and she was adopted alongside her twin sister, Ayomide, by the lovely Mrs Benson and moved to an upper-class neighborhood.
Despite the affluence and the new luxurious change in environment, Lefty still finds herself going back to the ghetto, falls in love in the ghetto and keeps getting in trouble. Eventually, she gets into one very big trouble with which she tries very hard to get out of.
Will Lefty succeed? The movie is a sequel to the 2010 Omo Ghetto produced by Funke Akindele. It has an expanded cast and updated screenplay. Some of the original cast were given new roles to play. The movie seemed to have received a lot of good recpetion by cinema patrons, and in some cinemas, tickets were sold out.
