According to Amb Okpioba Lancelot Oduwa Imasuen, “Chief Gabriel Osawaru Igbinedion, the Esama of Benin remains a pillar of support all through the production of GBEGE.
He supported and hosted the cast and crew of ‘Gbege’ during the course of principal photography, hosted us during Sam Dede’s birthday while on the set of the movie, and provided us with the location.

Subsequently, the same private screening of eminent Nigerians will take place in Abuja and Lagos respectively on a date that is yet to be announced.
