That’s why I produced a short film about pregnancy and motherhood and the fact that it is what women are going through, and it can be tough – you have two people who are about to parents, it can be exciting but at the same time the couple may be processing things in completely different ways – it is something I wanted to highlight.”

Synopsis of Omo Wa
The pregnancy journey is a profound one. Many women find greater purpose in their lives by becoming mothers although it is not always the case. But it is no less a profound journey for a man. We see Folarin and Salewa, a young couple living in Lagos, as they maneuver their way through their relationship. They are about to embark on a new phase of their lives. Parenthood. While all seems well and straight forward, cracks soon begin to show as it becomes clear they are not on the same page. While becoming a parent, in theory, sounds wonderful the reality of it becomes all too daunting for Folarin.
