Elevator Baby is centered around Dare William, a privileged young man with a temper and his encounter with Abigail Kuforiji, a pregnant woman with a secret.
When both characters get stuck in a faulty elevator, Abigail is forced into an emergency labour, leaving Dare with no choice but to deliver the baby himself.
This movie is quite lovely, fun and lesson filled and to crown it all, Toyin Abraham was really pregnant while shooting the movie and still gave it her best shot.
She gave the movie the facelift it needed with her constant repetition of ‘My name is Abigail’, her Gbagaun English and facial expressions.
Dare Williams, played by Timini Egbuson, on his part portrayed a typical 21st generation young man who thinks the world should revolve around him, but be tamed himself after what Toyin Abraham put him through in the Elevator.
The era of social media freaks was also touched; the good, bad and ugly side of social media.
The roles of Toyin Abraham’s publicist, Sam Olatunji, Bro Shaggy, Shaffy Bello, Yemi Solade were also on point.
No unnecessary scenes, no overcrowded cast, just moderate yet keeps you glued to your seat till the end.
Kemi Filani fully recommends Elevator Baby. Yes, it it worth your 2k.
If you are Toyin Abraham fan, you can’t miss this movie.
