After what has seemed like a long time since the release of her first film Isoken, ace producer and director, Jade Osiberu is set to release her second movie this December. Here are all the reasons why Jade Osiberu’s Sugar Rush is the movie you need to see this Christmas!
The Stellar Cast
If you have ever seen a Jade Osiberu production before, one thing you will already know is that she always has the most amazing cast! For Sugar Rush, she has already set our hearts racing with excitement with a cast that includes rising stars Adesua Etomi-Wellington, Bisola Aiyeola, Bimbo Ademoye, Tobi Bakre, Uzor Arukwe, Banky W, Mawuli Gavor.
The movie also boasts of a host of other Nollywood greats, including Idowu Phillips (Mama Rainbow of the Airtel adverts), Omoni Oboli, Jide Kosoko. The casting is everything the ardent movie goer would be thrilled about and is one of the reasons to head to the cinemas this Christmas!
The Colorful Campaigns
Sugar Rush has had an impressive social media presence since the first trailer dropped in November. The most captivating content so far has to be the movie’s premiere announcement video which featured some of the cast of the movie.

There’ll be Special Effects
If you watched the trailer for Sugar Rush closely, you would have noticed the use of some special effects in certain shots. This is an exciting thing to look forward to as it has been clear since the release of the movie Banana Island Ghost that Nollywood is beginning to take computer generated imagery (CGI) seriously. I surely can’t wait to see how it all pans out on the big screen!
