The world premiere of the movie "Idahosa Trails" takes place today, 27th of October


The world premiere of the movie "Idahosa Trails" takes place today, 27th of October, in Benin City, Edo State. The venue is the Church of God Mission Int. (Faith Arena).

The movie is about the life of Archbishop Benson Idahosa, the founder of Church of God Mission International. Born on the 11th of September 1938, he was seen as the father of Pentecostalism in Nigeria. He died on the 12th of March 1998.


The writer, producer and director of the movie is Stanlee Ohikhuare. According to Stanlee, the inspiration for the IDAHOSA Trails movie was ignited one Sunday morning in Church (Church4Real), when one of Stanlee Ohikhuare's pastors by name Obinna Madunagu was exhorting the church on the need for evangelism and the sustenance of positive legacies. He made a statement that pricked the director's spirit. He said:
"If we are careless enough, the legacies of great men who have inspired our nation and the church positively will be lost. Archbishop Benson Idahosa stood for so many things which people are either too comfortable to address, or are attempting to sound politically correct when they talk about".

But I sense that a time is at hand; if we do nothing about it - when a generation will come of age; to whom you will mention the name BENSON IDAHOSA to and they will respond by saying "who is that?"

Stanlee responded by saying "God Forbid"




So he decided to adopt a unique approach to the story telling by fishing out the people in the documented miracles that were performed by Archbishop Benson Idahosa. For every miracle that's depicted in the movie via reenactments, Stanlee has met and interviewed the real people and in some cases, even got documents to validate those miracles.

It stars David Schifter, Kunle Idowu (Frank Donga), Osas Ighodaro - Ajibade, Liz Ameye, Patrick Doyle, Mike Omoregbee, Adedamola Akapo and more...

The film will be in cinemas from the 3rd of November, 2017.

Here is a trailer of the movie
