Movie: Liz Benson, veteran screen goddess, back in action

Veteran actress, Liz Benson, who mesmerised movie viewers in its early days in Nigeria, has staged a comeback in a new movie titled: “Busted.”
The movie was produced by Lisa Onu and Face Onu would premiere on May 21 at the Oriental Hotel, Lagos.
It tells the love story of a gay couple.
It also features veterans such as Kate Henshaw, Paul Obazele, TV host IK Ogbonna and other new talented actors in the movie industry.
Busted is the story of a girl, Queen Edwards, who was born into a reputable home that the father’s high handedness and mother’s lackadaisical attitude led her (Queen) to a maid who lured her into lesbianism.
She continued the act into adulthood, dating and breaking up with different ladies.
In the process, she (Queen) falls in love with a lady, Blessing, who got into the act for financial gains.
When the government signed the anti-gay bill into law, the lovers ignored their biblical beliefs and societal views of lesbianism, which challenged their love for each other.
Benson, one of the screen divas in the early days of Nollywood, retired and went into evangelism.
Similarly, Obazele, who also acted in many soap operas’ on National Television in the 90s, has been off the screen for some years.
