Rotimi Is Set To Star in Mauritius-Shot Romantic Comedy 'Singleholic'
The Nigerian-American "Power" star is moving on to funnier things.
We all know him as Darius Morrison from Starz series, Boss, and Andre Coleman on the currently trending Starz's drama, Power. Now he's expanding his repertoire and dabbling into stories with a lighter tone.
Nigerian-American actor, model and singer, Olurotimi "Rotimi" Akinosho, will star in the romantic comedy, Singleholic, adapted from the novel by teacher, blogger, and writer, Katherine Birbalsingh (Bing), Variety reports.
The film is helmed by Bing herself, who wrote the screenplay, along with producer Milan Selassie (Back to School Mom), and director, Bryan Barber (Idlewild, and the upcoming sci-fi film, Gigantor).
One of the most exciting elements about Singelholic, besides being able to see Rotimi in a comedy, is that it is currently being filmed in the beautiful country of Mauritius.
