O-Town is an upcoming Nigerian crime gangster film that was written and directed by C.J. Obasi. The film stars Paul Utomi as Peace, a hustler at the center of various issues in the small town of Owerri, Nigeria, also known as O-Town. The film’s music was composed by Beatoven and Wache Pollen and filming took place in Owerri.

Of the film, Obasi has described as a:

“crime-gangster thriller. It’s a semi-autobiographical tale because it draws from some of the crime stories I knew and heard; growing up in a small town called Owerri, Imo State, Nigeria. It’s also my exploration into genre Film-making, where I explore basically my love for film.”
