speaking BelllaNaija.com the actor turn director said that: “Being in front of the camera for so many years didn’t quite prepare me for the intensity of directing this movie. Especially, for such an adored classic. It took four years of the team’s time and effort because we had to get it right. And I hope people enjoy, appreciate and learn from it.”  the choice of Ramsey Noah as the director of the film was the best decision the production company made here is my reason, Ramsey is a veteran actor and a prolific one he is one of the most sort after actors in the industry presently which means that booth the the old and new actors will relate to him.

the film had quite a number of veterans and new comers whose performance was top notch  Swanky JKA for instance, made quite an impression, the new comer plays the main character  (Nnamdi) Andy’s son, in the sequel. he could not have done a great job if the story was half baked so all thanks Nicole Asinugo and C.J. Obasi, who ensured that the story maintained the elements that got people hooked to the 1992/93 release. Enyinna Nwigwe, Nancy Isime, Munachi Abii were another addition to the original cast, also Ramsey Nouah,  played the powerful villain named Richard Williams.

Speaking with The Guardian after the screening, the Executive Producer, Dotun Olakurin said, “If you watch Living In Bondage in the 90s, you will know that it is a very powerful story everybody in Nigeria can relate to at some point or the other. What we have done is run the same powerful story into the current times and you can relate to it just as well if not more. “It brings in all the issues we deal with in Nigeria of today in a way that we can relate with comfortably and happily. It’s like saying you have Mercedes of the 90s and Mercedes of nowadays. For us it is a child of the child — that a story of the previous story.”
