When it comes to illness and women issues, Nigeria can be sometimes backwards driven, and this comes to life in the trailer as the youngest woman faces stigma from her fiance’s family. The Kunle Afolayan-directed film stars Nollywood heavyweights like Adebayo Salami, Binta Ayo-Magaji, Femi Adebayo, Toyin Abraham and others.

Like many other educational films, Diamonds In The Sky seems to spread awareness on the various forms of cancer affecting Nigerian women .While there is no official release date yet, hopefully, the movie will teach people to not treat women like crap, in addition to raising cancer awareness.
