Biodun Stephen’s Sista is set to make its debut on Prime Video on June 23rd.


Written and directed by Stephen herself, the film examines the life of a single mother’s unwavering sacrifice to shield her children from the shadows of her past by exploring themes of love, betrayal, and selflessness.


Drawing inspiration from her own journey as a mother, Stephen said, “Sista was a project that was inspired by me being a mother. I also thought about my mother, who raised me singlehandedly… The film reminds us of the sacrifices our parents have made for us and that we should appreciate them.” With a heartfelt message at its core, Sista serves as a poignant reminder of the profound sacrifices made by parents.


The film boasts an exceptional cast, including the talented Kehinde Bankole, Deyemi Okanlawon, Bisola Aiyeola, Akintola Adeoluwa, Adediwura Adesegha, and Adedamola Adewale, who bring their characters to life with depth and authenticity.
