After two years of an unbroken record as the highest grossing Nigerian film in the cinemas, the multiple award winning movie, Ije: The Journey, produced by US based Nigerian film maker, Chineze Anyaene, is set to make history again as the film hits the DVD market from Monday, December 3.

Ije, produced in 2010, and featuring two of Nigeria's best actresses, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde and face of Range Rover in Nigeria, Genevieve Nnaji, grossed over N70 million in the box office, before the emergence of Avengers. The film beats movies such as Salt, Avatar and Spiderman.

According to the producer, who is currently in the country, " We want to make history again by putting Ije on DVD."

One of the cast of the movie, Omotola said "It is nice to see the movie on DVD, those who didn't see the movie when it was at the cinema would have another opportunity to see the movie now. I hope they will like it".

Omotola, however, described her relationship with Genevieve while shooting the movie, as "cordial", adding "she is so full of life and very versatile too. Genevieve is an actress who understands the industry, little wonder why she is an authority in this clime."

IJE tells the story of two sisters, Chioma and Anya, the choices they make in life and the consequences they have to pay for making those choices.
