Her Perfect Life and Iyawo Mi, a short film with a primarily Yoruba language, are Mo Abudu’s first forays into film directing.

Abudu stated in a press release announcing the production,“I believe in learning and understanding any major assignment I undertake. Directing is an art form that takes years to master, so I’m beginning with baby steps. I have written two short films that I will be directing – Her Perfect Life and Iyawo Mi (My Wife), a predominantly Yoruba language film.

“Although these stories are fictional, they highlight the mental health challenges, hardly spoken about in Nigerian society, that many people deal with all over the world. Mental health issues can affect anyone, regardless of age, race, income or social class, and they are on the increase.”

Pearl Thusi and Joseph Benjamin, stars of “Queen of Sono,” will play the major characters in “Her Perfect Life,” with Omawunmi Dada, Uzo Osimpka, Christian Paul, and Mary Lazarus playing supporting roles.

The movie centers on Onajite Johnson-Ibrahim, 39, who appears to have the ideal life: a booming job, an expanding business, a supportive husband, and two lovely children. Despite this, she longs to end it all.

The Yoruba-language film by Abudu centers on Kunle’s terrifying night when he arrives home to find Eniola yelling and hallucinating at their kids and neighbors and threatening to kill everyone. Kunle decides to handle things on his own, which has disastrous results. Adedimeji Lateef, Bolaji Ogunmola, Segun Arinze, and Jude Chukwuka are the stars of “Iyawo Mi.”

Mo Abudu, Bola Atta, Wale Tinubu, Shola Akinlade, Pearl Thusi, and Nonos Okpala are the executive producers of both movies. Heidi Uys is the supervising producer, Inem King, Joshua Olaoluwa, Sonia Nwosu is the producer, Temidayo Makanjuola is in charge of production design, and Kabelo Thathe is the director of photography.
