Award winning director, Kunle Afolayan has released the trailer of his upcoming movie, Phone Swap. Phone Swap is a romantic comedy, which tells the story of Akin, a corporate executive and Mary, a warm hearted fashion designer, who meet for the first time at a busy airport where they accidentally bump into each other and mistakenly swap their identical phones. This leads to a series of unintended and hilarious consequences.
They receive one another’s text and this leads to a mix up in travel destination. Consequently, Akin ends up traveling to where Mary is supposed to go and vice versa. As a result of the phone swap, they agree to help carry out each other’s missions, armed with the information and data on each other’s phone. But it’s not as easy as they both think as new obstacles and complications rise at every turn as they both struggle to adapt to their alien environment and situation. Mary has to walk in Akins shoes and represent him in a company meeting while Akin has to represent Mary in her the family meeting.
Phone swap features some of Nollywood’s best actors & actresses such as Joke Silva – Jacobs, Chika Okpala, Wale Ojo, Nse Ikpe Etim, Lydia Forson and Ada Ameh. And if the successes of Kunle Afolayan’s The Figurine – Araromire and Irapadaare anything to go by, this is a must watch and shouldn’t be missed. The movie will be premiered in Lagos at the Expo Centre, Eko Hotel & Suites on the 17th of March 2012 and in Abuja at Silverbird Cinemas on the 24th of March 2012.
