The 2014 award-winning movie titled, Dazzling Mirage, by the prolific filmmaker, Tunde Kelani has premiered on the global streaming platform, Netflix.

The film, which is an adaptation of Olayinka Abimbola Egbokhare’s novel of the same title, was made into a motion picture by Ade Solanke. It features the likes of Kemi Lala Akindoju and the project was her breakout lead role.

The film tells the tale of Funmiwo, a young sickle cell anaemia carrier dealing with the societal and physical challenges influenced by the condition.

Kelani’s film premiered in cinemas to critical acclaim with Akindoju winning the AMVCA’s Trailblazer award in 2016. Akindoju’s performance was so well-received that she had to deny rumours that she was hired for the part because she had the sickle cell disease.

The film also stars Bimbo Manuel, Kunle Afolayan, Yomi Fash Lanso, Taiwo Ajayi-Lycett, Seun Akindele and Aderounmu Adejumoke.
