I carried and birthed this child. I'm so grateful to everyone who showed up to share and witness the beauty that is this child – special mention to the beautiful ones who changed their flight dates graciously and patiently while we dealt with all the wahala that comes with planning an event like this. I'm also extremely grateful to the team who came together to make the delivery an easier process. Pamela, Amaka, Mo, Asurf, the amazing actors, every single crew member; thank you, we created magic! And, I can't wait for you all to see it. Be patient now, once we are done with festival rounds, Ìfẹ́ will grace your screens! #ìféthemovie #loveislove #ifeisife Photography: @rakelphotography1 Styled by: @debs.qa Earrings: @thebijoubrand

It was reported that the Nigerian Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB) says the movie violates the country’s strict laws on homosexuality and those behind it risk jail.

But the producer Pamela Adie and Ikpe-Etim are planning a surprise online release to catch the regulators off-guard.

Ife will also get an international premiere in Canada in October.

The movie, according to Adie, is to show an accurate picture of lesbian and bisexual women in Nigerian movies.
