    The Nigerian director, Cheta Chukwu had earlier worked on Nollywood projects including Payday, and the short film, Deranged as writer.

    Similar to the themes in Adam BOL, Payday, the 2018 film which also stars Bisola Aiyeola, explores the protagonists in an unexpected situation not very dissimilar to Adam BOL. The film follows two flatmates who after an expensive night out, get tangled in an overnight misadventure to recover their rent money to pay their dead landlord’s daughter.

    Payday was picked up by Netflix India.
