We’ve heard little from her since she tied the knot with Olumide Akande on January 16, 2011. Now, Dakore Egbusun Akande is back. Back on your screens very soon!
All thanks to singer-actress Ashionye’s new movie ‘Journey to Self’, fans will once again be able to watch Dakore dazzle, as she stars alongside Nse Ikpe-Etim, Carol King, Kalu Ikeagwu, Femi Brainard, Femi Jacobs, Chris Attoh, Katherine Obiang Edoho, Tosin Sido and Ashionye herself in a new big-budget movie currently being shot in Lagos.
‘Journey to self’ is an intense story of friendship, sacrifice, empowerment and self-respect’.
It tells the story of four friends, Nse (Nse Ikpe-Etim), Regina (Ashionye Michelle-Raccah), Alex (Dakore Akande) and Rume (Katherine Obiang Edoho) who lose a mutual childhood friend, Uche (Tosin Sido). Uche speaks through a series of letters stirring her friends to a journey of self-discovery… a ‘Journey to Self’.
The project, we’re told, will mark the Nollywood debut of Katherine Edoho, a radio/TV presenter-producer who recently separated from Who Wants to be a Millionaire presenter Frank Edoho.
‘The movie has taken 13 months to make and we are proud of what we achieved in that time’, Ashionye Michelle Raccah, writer and producer of the movie says. It was executive produced by Fressia Entertainment and co-produced by Tosin Sido for Fressia Entertainment.
The movie will be premiered this year.
Dakore tied the knot with hubby Olumide Akande – son of the billionaire business man, Chief Harry Akande on January 16, 2011.
