Produced under the stables of Dabz Movie Production, the film features list of professionals like the actress herself, Yvonne Jegede alongside Shirley Igwe, Kenneth Okolie, Gift Okeke among other acts.
According to the producer, Dabby Chimere, the movie is an emotional, but social relevant one that would expose the scourge of drug and alcohol abuse in the society.
“It's about a mother who loves her drugs more than her only girl child because she is far too addicted. Due to the fact that drug addiction has taken over her entire life, her child went on to suffer neglect and abuse in her hands. It became an appalling situation that one could not manage seeing, but to pity the child,” she said.
Promising to be different, Dabby stressed that the movie would be entertaining, though it needs one to watch it for purpose of understanding.
Adding, she said it's necessary for people of all ages to peruse it through views so to be educated and sensitized on the harms of drug abuse, both with the solution of curbing it.
In a move to put up long lasting campaign for its sensitization, the Executive Producer of The Sassy One unveiled her plans of premiering the movie on April 25, 2015 at the popular Film House Cinema, located at 97-99 Leisure Mall, Adenerian Ogusanya street in Surulere, beside Shoprite, Lagos State.
