Governorship ambitions tear Omoni Oboli and RMD apart in a new film, ‘Love is war’


In the recently released teaser of the film, Toke Makinwa throws Omoni, who plays the role of Mrs. Phillips, off-balance during an interview session, where she asked if she was a better candidate than her husband.

I know I am the best person and candidate for the job irrespective of my gender,” she told Toke.

Omoni was also seen enjoying political parades with the crowd and aided by Uzo Osimkpa and Yemi Blaq.

Following scenes shows RMD, who plays the role of Mr. Phillips, canvassing for votes while trying to mingle with the general public by eating roasted corn and visiting priests for God’s blessings. 

Another interesting scene sees Mr. and Mrs. Phillips sharing a quiet time in their bedroom and discussing their moves. Mr. Phillip hinted that their ambition might tear them apart but Mrs. Phillips was quick to reassure him that nothing can destroy their marriage.

Things turned worse in the latter scenes with Mr. and Mrs. Phillips falling apart and their daughter asking why they are both bent on contesting against each other. Commotion ensues with their supporters clashing at political rallies.
