The movie explores issues faced by young couples in marriages and how their resolutions sometimes threaten to shake the foundation of their love.
Speaking to Pulse Nigeria in 2017, Mike Ezuruonye said that he isn’t a fan of buffoonery, so he is making a different kind of comedy.
“I’m not a fan of buffoonery. Even if it’s comedy, it has to have a message to it, which is what we did with “Divorce? Not Allowed.”
“Divorce not Allowed” comes after Ezuruonye’s self-produced comedy movie “Brother Jekwu,” which reportedly grossed 20 million naira in 10 days.
Mike Ezuruonye has starred in some of Nollywood’s most popular movies and is also one of fans favourite.
