For six months between April and September 2012, it was the story everyone looked forward to weekly as they followed 35-year-old Oyin Clegg’s search for her handsome prince. 8 years later, Tunde Leye’s viral story “Finding Hubby” is set to hit cinema screens. In that time, Tunde has gone on to author 4 books, including the critically acclaimed Afonja The Rise.
Finding Hubby captures the delightful journey of Oyin Clegg and her two other friends; Toke and Gloria, as they take you through the adventure of kissing the many frogs in the quest to find their prince.
The movie is produced and directed by Femi D. Ogunsanwo who has been behind successes such as Ojukokoro, Knockout Blessing, Jemeji and Ajoche. The cast and crew of the movie have been carefully selected to ensure that the viral story is retold on video without losing any of the elements that made it a fan-favorite.
“It was a most exhilarating experience creating a movie out of this story that was followed by over 2 million people online and on radio. I can’t wait for fans to see what will definitely be the most talked about movie this year ” says Femi.
The movie “Finding Hubby” is a screen-adaptation of Author Tunde Leye’s 2012 blog series about a 35-year-old single lady and her friends’ journey of self-discovery against the landscape of the hustle and bustle of Lagos, Nigeria. The movie explores themes of friendship, love and finding happiness in oneself.
