Chioma Omeruah ‘Chigul’ to Star in Biola Alabi Media and Nemsia’s First Film

Something BIG is about to hit your screens this summer as Chioma Omeruah, a.k.a ‘Chigul’, stars in the action packed comedy film ‘Banana Island Ghost (B.I.G)’ by BAM NEMSIA Pictures. B.I.G is a slapstick movie about a ghost that is scared to go to heaven because he doesn’t have a soulmate, so he convinces God to give him three days to fall in love. He is paired with the cantankerous firecracker – Ijeoma, played by Chigul – who will do anything to save her father’s house in Banana Island from the bank coming to reclaim it in three days.
