What You Need to Know About ‘Unintentional’, RedTV’s First Feature Film: A Story of Love, Loss, and Recovery

Kunle Afolayan’s Netflix film, A Naija Christmas, won’t be the only talk of the town this festive period. As the Christmas flick resonates with the reality many people experience in their various homes, the United Bank for Africa (UBA) through its Lifestyle and Entertainment channel, REDTV, has blessed us with another star-studded movie, Unintentional, which was released on Boxing Day.


Unintentional, REDTV’s first feature-length film, stars some of Nollywood’s biggest names, featuring Kate Henshaw, Efa Iwara, Omowumi Dada, Beverly Osu, Chioma Okoli, Tina Mba, and Mike Uchegbu.


Unintentional is a feel-good love story that follows Sefi Madaki (played by Omowumi Dada) 

and her best friend Rosy (Beverly Osu) on a journey of self-discovery after a tumultuous heartbreak at the start of their national youth service year.


Filmed around the beautiful landscape of Enugu State in Nigeria, the movie delves into the lives of these two young African girls on a road trip that leads to the discovery of love in the least expected place, triggered by a weird scenario.


Omowunmi Dada’s Sefi seems to be the absolute unluckiest when it comes to love. She leaves Lagos for her youth service in Imo state after her boyfriend, Ladi (Tobi Bakare), proposes to another woman. Rosie (Beverly Osu), her friend, has informed her and other friends about her posting to Imo State for her service year as well, which makes the duo to be entangled together throughout their service year.


On their way to Imo, they have a very bad traveling experience from issues with other passengers to an engine breakdown in the middle of the road. The ladies are saved from the stress of waiting for another bus by the easy-to-love Uzor (Efa Iwara), who is traveling on the same road at that time. It isn’t an easy one at first because Sefi has decided not to ride with him, despite their unfavorable situation at that time until Rosie forces her to accept the ride.
