The Counsellor (2024)

The Counsellor delves into the lives of Aisha and Gbenro, who are nursing wounds from previous “breakfasts” delivered by their partners just before Valentine’s Day. They somehow find themselves reluctantly thrown together on a non-refundable getaway originally planned with their now-exes.

Their unexpected meeting develops into a romance that quickly leads to an engagement. While preparing for marriage, doubts arise from Gbenro’s single mother. She is sceptical about the longevity of their sudden romance, prompting them to embark on a seven-day counselling session recommended to prove their love. The film explores the themes of love and marriage, single mothers and their overprotective streak, and the complexities faced in relationships through humour and depth.

AMVCA Trailblazer 2022 winner Teniola Aladese (Slum King, Ricordi) and David Okpo Eyo (Covenant) play the lead roles of Aisha and Gbenro, respectively. The film also stars Eyiyemi Olivia Rogbinyin, Uzoamaka Anuinoh (Diiche, Riona) and Moyinoluwa Olutayo (Dear Mother, Worlds Apart).
