Murder-mystery, the CEO, pits five hard-nosed telecoms execs – Nigerian, Kenyan, Moroccan, Ivorian and South African – against each other at a luxury beach resort as they vie for the CEO position at a global firm. Their Apprentice-style elimination is presided over by a steely consultant (played by Beninese singer Angélique Kidjo) and things start to go awry as rivalries intensify and intrigue and murder ensue. Set on beautiful beaches on the outskirts of Lagos, and demonstrating the acting and production talent of several African countries, acclaimed director Kunle Afolayan brings us a truly Pan-African Nollywood experience.
