Niyi Akinmolayan’s Elevator Baby is now on Netflix and many Nigerians who missed seeing the movie at the cinemas finally got another chance to watch it.
The 2019 thriller/drama film has garnered mostly favourable reviews among Nigerians with many praising Timini Egbuson and Shafy Bello’s performances.
Toyin Abraham’s portrayal of Abigail, a pregnant semi-illiterate woman who goes into labour in an elevator, also received critical acclaim. The film’s most memorable line – My name is Abigail! – came from her.
Elevator Baby tells the story of a rich and badly behaved young man (Dare) who gets stuck in a faulty elevator with a semi-illiterate pregnant woman and she goes into labour.
Timini Egbuson won the Best Actor in a Drama at the 2020 Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCA) for his portrayal of Dare in Elevator Baby.
