‘Living in Bondage’, acclaimed to be the movie that chronicled Nollywood’s journey to prominence, is a 1992 Nigerian two-part drama film.

The film was shot ‘straight-to-video’ and produced in Igbo, and starred Kenneth Okonkwo and Nnenna Nwabueze in their breakout roles.

It tells the story of Andy (Kenneth Okonkwo) and Merit Okeke (Nnenna Nwabueze), a young couple facing harsh economic challenges that eventually pushed Andy to join a cult.

Members of the fraternity swore their loyalty to ‘Lucifer’ and kill their loved ones in ritualised sacrifices for wealth.

Andy met the ‘demands’ of the cult and eventually became very rich, however, the nemesis that unfolded became the intrigues that define his ‘Living in Bondage.’
