The movie premiered in Lagos on the 23rd of January and will be available in cinemas in select cities from the opening weekend of January 28th – February 15th, 2022.

The movie “Dinner at my place” is a romantic comedy that tells the story of Nonso who is planning to propose to his girlfriend over dinner, however, things take a turn for the worst when his Dramatic Ex-girlfriend shows up uninvited.

“So, I would say when two people typically fall in love, it’s not always a happy safe. Definitely, this is going to be, you know, a follow-up misunderstanding, or something that wouldn’t really work. It will actually get them through it. And they will be able to combine the drama and obstacles issues that may come in,” said Kevin Apaa, writer and director, stating that no matter where there is love, there’s bound to be drama.

According to Apaa, drama is everywhere and is regarded as part of everyday life. Hence, he believes ‘Dinner at my place ‘ is a concept that plays out wherever there’s a love story; sometimes tragic.
