Yvonne Okoro and fans

 Actress Yvonne Okoro’s first movie as a producer, The Contract, directed by Shirley Frimpong Manso, is doing wonders in Ghana's movie industry.
The movie’s premiere at Ghana's National Theatre on December 28 turned out to be a huge success.
It was a sold-out event with a lot of movie enthusiasts patronising it. Tickets got finished ahead of the premiere, leaving a lot of movie enthusiast stranded without tickets.

It was a one-show premiere event and every seat at the auditorium of the theatre was occupied. Some patrons had to stand on their feet to enjoy the movie.
Weeks ago, the movie broke Silverbird Ghana records. A lot of movie enthusiasts had queued to watch the movie since it started showing at the Silverbird Cinemas from December 29.
Two cinema halls had been allocated for the movie's screening but there seemed to be some pressure due to patronage.  
Ghana local radio station, Citi fm, reportedly named The Contract movie of the year 2012. The movie is expected to break into Nollywood cinemas very soon.
It will also premiere in South Africa before it finally goes out of the African continent.
The Contract tells the story of a successful businessman Peter Puplampo, the ultimate alpha male played by South Africa's award winning actor Hlomla Dandala.
He is 40 years old, rich and a staunch bachelor. Despite his mother’s persistent attempts to find him a woman, Peter sticks to his rule of non-committal casual dates, freedom and being in control of his life until the desire to have a child arises.

In his quest to find the woman who will take his money, have his child and disappear, Peter begins a roller-coaster, contracted relationship with Abena Boateng (Yvonne Okoro), a crude but clever local girl who is anything but impressed with Peter’s affluence.
With a clear definitive contract from his lawyer outlining the dos and don’ts of bearing Peter Puplampo’s child, these two opposites must exercise every ounce of willpower not to kill each other until the child is born.
The movie is an unsuspecting romantic comedy with unusual twists that expose the flaws in being in control of one’s life.
It also stars Joseph Benjamin from Nollywood and introduces Ghanaian award winning model, Joycelyn Nketia.
