    A TChidi Chikere Movie

    Egocentric Ransome (Artus Frank) prefers to wallow in poverty than belittles himself before a rich damsel Desiree (Rita Dominic), Ransom's girlfriend Egede (Mercy Johnson) tries to lure him into accepting Desiree's offer because of greed, but little did she know that she is making a serious lapse, a secret is yet to be disclosed amongst them.

    Watch it here on youtube

    Good movie. Chidi has the most wackiest titles ever though. He should be paying someone to title his movies.

    When next you speak with him, can you ask him to do something with Majid and OmoT again?..Deepest of Dreams was one of my faves, and I love what he did with Majid...Of course OmoT rocked, as expected.

    I can't think off the bat of all his movies with wacky titles but there's this beautiful movie he made with Jim and Kate that I can never forget. They were lovers fighting for their love, and he named it Fighting for Nothing. You could be a little creative with your title and let your audience see the fights and decide for themselves if they were for nothing or not. He's probably also the one that did Givers Never Lack.

    Money never Sleeps is partly about money but it's also about desires and what people can do with money or for it. With thousands of movies on nollywood love and millions more out there I would think a bit about what other elements to form the title. Had he consulted me I would have suggested Restless Desires for the title. Desires drove each of the characters in this movie. Everybody was strong and clear about their wishes, and was doing anything to have them met. Desire is also near homophone with the name of a major character in the movie, Desiree. That's how to name a move. Chidi obviously works hard for his movies and should do more on his titling because that is the only cover there is.

    lol I wouldn't read too much meaning to it. He was just trying to make the point that the girls could pay for anything to while away time at home. The same reason she hired Ransom.
