Dillish & Melvin Star In Nollywood Romance Movie

Big Brother Africa 2013 winner, Dillish Mathews is in Nigeria shooting a romantic movie in which she plays the lead role alongside Melvin. The reality TV star has been travelling since exiting the reality show and recently finished shooting a music video with Nigerian music star Flavour, titled 'Ikwokrikwo'.

The West African country is known as the home of African entertainment, as aspiring actors and musicians flock there for a piece of the Nollywood dream.

"The movie we are shooting is titled 'Amber'. It's about a woman who falls in love and on her wedding day the groom fails to show up because he is being blackmailed. I'm shooting alongside my fellow ex-housemate Melvin Oduah and one of the biggest actors in Nigeria, Nonso Diobi. I'm very excited as it will be my first time starring in a movie of this kind.

"The director, Shedrack, is one of the best in Nollywood and is very skilled in his craft."

The movie will premiere first in Nigeria, then in Namibia and lastly the United Kingdom, all of which will happen in April, she said.

"The movie industry in Nigeria is booming and receiving worldwide recognition. It will definitely open billions of doors for me."

When The Namibian asked her about any upcoming business projects in the West African nation, Dillish said she is not sure if she wants to invest in businesses in Nigeria just yet.

"I'm not sure about venturing into business there but right now but I'm talking to (Nigerian) people to invest in film production in Namibia because they are extremely successful in this field."

Dillish says she never auditioned for the role and decided to star in the movie after the director kept saying she was perfect for the role.

"I have about six more movies lined up and it will be crazy busy for the next seven months. Also look out for my lip gloss and lipstick line that will be launched on the 14th of February," she said.
