Uche Jombo:  ‘Heaven On My Mind’ Not a Christian Film


Nollywood actress and producer, Uche Jombo who teamed up with another veteran actress Ini Edo, has refuted claims from different quarters that their new movie, ‘Heaven On My Mind’ which is set for cinema release from Friday, December 7, 2018 is a Christian movie. She however insisted that the movie was inspired by a real life story.

“I keep hearing this over and over from people saying that the movie is a Christian film and I know why that is. It is because of the title but you only need to see the film to realise that it had nothing on Christianity or any religion. It is simply a human story. The idea for the movie came from a real life story I heard which was corroborated from another source and we had to invite someone who had similar experience. That was how we developed the story and the script. For me, it is more about human stories. 

I love to make stories I can feel and others can as well. So, to clear the doubt, Heaven On My Mind is not a Christian film but a human story”, she clarified.

All major cinemas in the country will be showing the movie to teeming and expectant fans. The official trailer for the movie has just been released. The Nollywood heavyweight, Uche Jombo who has had her fair share of cinema runs with several collaborations with top filmmakers like Desmond Elliot, Emem Isong and more will be making her first full feature and directorial debut with this family movie, Heaven On My Mind.

Heaven On My Mind to hit cinemas nationwide come December 7th 2018.

The movie tells the story of Ben Peters who sees marriage as a business transaction and he is hard working at it, his wife is sexy, a goal getter, hardworking and intelligent woman never denies him sex. To him he has a different idea of what marriage is.
