Royal Hibiscus Hotel- IJGB (I Just Got Back) Problems 101
Nigerians who return from the diaspora- popularly known as IJGB– often times face the growing hopes of their parents who often expect immediate and unnegotiable marriage or taking over the family business. The blistering Nigerian heat only adds to their many problems.
Ope Adeniyi, played by Zainab Balogun in ‘The Royal Hibiscus Hotel’, is not left out. Her mother, Rose Adeniyi, (Rachael Oniga) wants her married while her dad ‘Segun Adeniyi’ (Jide Kosoko) wants her to sign off the family business. As if this was not enough, fate throws in a curveball in the form of the devilishly handsome Deji (Kenneth Okolie) who has a secret agenda with his business partner, Martin (Deyemi Okanlawon).
Will the secret plans see the light of day or has ‘Ope’ fallen for the wrong guy? Watch it all unfold when ‘The Royal Hibiscus Hotel’ hits cinemas near you on the 9th of February 2018.
