Here’s All The Tea For The Remake Of Nollywood Classic ‘Nneka The Pretty Serpent’

Nollywood producer, Charles Okpaleke is on a mission to reconnect old and new Nollywood by bringing back some of our favorite classics. Following the success of Living in Bondage: Breaking Free, the producer is set to remake 1992 film, Nneka The Pretty Serpent.

The story follows Nneka, a mermaid disguised as a human, whose mission on earth was to destroy promiscuous married men. The movie was produced by Okechukwu Ogunjiofor and directed by Zeb Ejiro in 1992.

The 28-year later remake is slated for release later this year and here is what we know about it so far:
