'The Royal Hibiscus Hotel' Coming This February To Naija Cinemas

Written and directed by Ishaya Bako, this romantic comedy stars Zainab Balogun as Ope, an aspiring restaraunter who quits her job in the UK and goes back to Lagos to start over in her family’s rather run down hotel. However she gets a shock on discovering her parents plan to sell it (gasp!) to a rich property developer Deji (Kenneth Okolie), who happened to the same guy man she met by chance. Hence two things are at stake here... her heart and her inheritance.
The movie’s ensemble cast includes Olu Jacobs, Joke Silva, Rachel Oniga and Jide Kosoko. The movie already sounds sort of predictable, girl meets boy and fall in love albeit with conflicts between them at first. But hey, Valentine’s Day is round the corner, what else would the audience  want to add to heighten the mood?

Made by Ebonylife Films, The Royal Hibiscus Hotel  premiered  at the 2017 Toronto International film festival on the 8th of September and will be released in the country on the 9th of February, 2018. So... mark your calenders!
