The two notable Nollywood stars, who acted opposite each other as mothers-in-law in the movie, are been paired for a movie for the first time.

Speaking on her role, Ayo Adesanya said she still can't believe she carried out the role to the delight of guests at the private screening and official premiere.

"It's surprising to see how I carried out the character. It was interesting filming on the set and being my first time with Patience Ozokwor, it was a delightful time. A challenging role but I'm happy Kunle Afolayan gave me the opportunity to play the character and I'm glad the audience like it," she said.

Also starring Ken Erics and Omowunmi Dada, "Omugwo," tells the story of Omotunde, a young civil engineer and her hubby Raymond an OAP(Online Radio Personality), who just had their first child and their mothers move in for the Igbo culture child care rite called Omugwo.

Coloured by their different cultural backgrounds, their mothers-in-law forcefully move in with the couple to perform the Igbo-culture rite but instead of relieving their children of the burden of childcare, the mothers' rivalry complicates life for the couple to comical effects.
