Niyi Akinmolyayan is having a busy 2019. Already, the filmmaker has three upcoming projects including the animated movie Malika: Warrior Queen, and Elevator Baby adds onto the stack. The movie has been in development for a while, directed by Akay Mason and stars Timini Egbuson and Toyin Abraham.
Elevator Baby tells the story of Dare (Egbuson), a privileged young man with a fiery temper, who got stuck in a faulty elevator with a semi-literate pregnant woman in labour (Abraham). Dare is left with no choice but to try and save both mother and child. This experience brings him face to face with his inner demons. The plot is quite compelling and Akinmolayan has just released a poster for the movie on Instagram.
