Lost in London is a hilarious tale about Okon and Bona, young students who get selected for an exchange program in London. They attempt to earn some precious Pounds before returning to Nigeria and experience culture shock and all sorts of trouble. But Okon and Bona are made of sterner stuff and every step of the way proves that the Nigerian spirit cannot be broken.
Lost in London is the third sequel in the successful Okon franchise – Okon Lagos and Okon Goes To School – the films that created the much-beloved Okon character and made a superstar of Ime Bishop Umoh, who recently made headline news with his AMVCA win.
In Lost in London, Ime Bishop Umoh is at the top of his game, making a moment of every one of his scenes. Alex Ekubo, versatile as a drama actor & a comedic one brings his comic chops to the fore in this movie, achieving excellent chemistry with his co-star.
Lost In London is a collaboration between Uduak Isong Oguamanan, writer and producer, and Sunkanmi Adebayo, director, both of who studied in England and are using the film as a medium to showcase their rich Nigerian Heritage and British educational influence.
