The film is directed by Ishaya Bako and executive produced by Genevieve Nnaji, who is also starring in the film.

I Do Not Come To You By Chance tells the story of Kingsley, a young Nigerian graduate who is struggling to make ends meet. When his uncle, Boniface, asks him to help with his fraudulent email scams, Kingsley is faced with a difficult choice: should he help his family or do the right thing?

The film is a timely exploration of the true price of poverty and the disappearing line between right and wrong. It is also a powerful indictment of the Nigerian email scam industry, which has caused billions of dollars in losses to victims around the world.

She is also a successful businesswoman and the founder of the Genevieve Nnaji Foundation, which supports the education and empowerment of young women in Nigeria.

I Do Not Come To You By Chance is a significant film for Nnaji, as it is her first time producing and starring in a film. The film is also a major step forward for the Nigerian film industry, as it is the first Nigerian film to be selected for the prestigious TIFF Centrepiece program.

I Do Not Come To You By Chance is set to premiere at TIFF on September 9, 2023. The film will also be released in Nigerian cinemas on September 16, 2023.
