How This Rivalry Started?
In an exclusive press statement on how this social media rivalry started + what’s exciting about this project.
Here is what the co-leads have to say:
KR: This rivalry started when I knew he existed. WDYC is an exciting way to finally settle this matter once and for all. (If you ask what the matter is, it’s all fhingz) – If we have to do it in a film, so be it.”
Deyemi: You mean between The Actor and the Tiktok artist? Well the first day I met KR he told me he wanted to be just like me, so, just as there can’t be rivalry between eagles and doves, there’s really no rivalry between us.
On what to expect:
Deyemi: Apart from giving him a masterclass in A-list acting, I finally get to beat up KR and get paid for it… bucket list fhingz!”
The title is produced by Film One Studios, Accelerate Studios, Covenant Productions and 1810 Global.
