Since the premiere, the movie has since gotten great reviews. Isoken has taken the production of Nollywood movies a notch higher.


The movie Isoken is about a beautiful, successful lady by the name “Isoken”. Unfortunately, coming from a cultural background obsessed with marriages; Isoken is 34 and still unmarried. She constantly leaves everyone in the Osayande family worrying about her.

Eventually, tables turn at her youngest sister’s wedding when her overbearing mother thrusts her into an orchestrated matchmaking with the ultimate Edo man, Osaze. Osaze is handsome, successful and from a good family, making him perfect Nigerian husband material.

Just when you think she has finally found Mr Right, Isoken meets Kevin who she finds herself falling in love with and he just might be what she truly wants in a partner. The only problem is, not only is he not an Edo man, he is Oyinbo (Caucasian).
