A film titled 1 in 50,000 is set to be premiered tommorow 24th of February, 2019.

The film which is based on true life story will be premiered in Lagos at 27, Carter Street by Adekunle bustop, Ebute Meta, by 3pm.

In an exclusive interview with Gospel Film News, the producer of the movie, Mojisola Ogunlana revealed that: “1 in 50,000 is the true life story of my daughter. When we gave birth to her we got to know she has a syndrome called ‘Treacher Collins Syndrome’. This syndrome happens to a child out of 50,000. There was a day my daughter came home and asked that ‘Mummy, is there nobody in Nigeria that has this kind of Syndrome, i want to meet the person, i want to share felling’ and i went to the internet to check, Lo and Behold, i couldn’t get any write up or anybody in Nigeria with that syndrome, though you can find it outside the country. So, i made up my mind that since what the Lord told me when i had her was ‘the comfort you receive, comfort another person’, because i was asking God what he wanted to say concerning her case.”

Ogunlana also told Gospel Film News that “As a child of God when you have a situation, there is always something that God is saying, so, once you got to know what God is saying every other thing people are saying is noise, though Doctors told me so many thing; how she will not be able to hear, how i should not feed her with pepperish things until she is eighteen (18), how she will not be able to walk, they said so many things but i wanted to know what God was saying and the only thing God said was that The comfort which you have received, comfort another person. When i now realised there is nobody with such in Nigeria and i know deep down that there will be some children with such children, maybe they’ve been killed or they locked them up and i thought of creating awareness.”

The movie which will be shown free parades actors like Kolade Segun-Okeowo, Victor Olukoju, Omolara Ayoola, Ifeoluwalose Ogunlana among others and was directed by Daramola Kayode Babalola.
