Everyone can relate to how hard it is to realize dreams, especially when they are not in the traditional bracket of what a life-long career should be — the heartache, the lack of support from family members, and so much more. “Road to Spotlight” is a film that depicts the difficulties of pursuing one’s dream while also trying to make money to survive.

The short film tells the story of Naomi (Sophie Alakija), an ordinary Nigerian who dreams of becoming a successful vlogger, making lots of money, and gaining fans via her creativity with her lifestyle YouTube channel. She recognizes, however, that dreams do not become a reality overnight, and she still has to earn a living to survive. Will she be able to attain her ambitious goals? The answer is in the movie.

A few weeks ago, TECNO premiered the movie “Roles Reversed,” which was shot on the Camon 19 Pro. The video quality was great, the story was top-notch, and the acting was mind-blowing. With Sophie Alakija as the lead actress and Kayode Kasum as the director, we can only guess how good the movie “Road to the Spotlight” would be.
