Ini Edo Scores High with Shanty Town, Her International Debut as Co-Producer

Award-winning Nollywood actor Ini Edo has added another success to her résumé by making her international film debut in the Netflix production of Shanty Town.

Ini, whose acting career spans over two decades, is making significant progress in global production as a co-producer of the dramatic crime thriller.

In the novel Shanty Town, three unconventional prostitutes band up to dismantle one of the biggest criminal organisations in Lagos state.

Ini Edo plays the part of Ese, also known as “The Fire Brand,” who serves as the project’s principal character.

The story isn’t just about a collaboration to fight crime, but it’s that of freedom for all women to become all they want to be and live their positive dreams. This is a great advocacy for women and young girls who have gone through a lot.

It can be recalled that Ini Edo has been an ardent campaigner for women’s inclusion in politics, tech and every worthwhile aspect of human development, as this goes to prove that women are a force to reckon with. 

With Shanty Town, she joins the league of top influential Nigerian and African women in the film production circle which include Mo Abudu, Funke Akindele, Bolanle Austin-Peters amongst others.
