  1. There’s a romantic sound track that’s used in the movie. Can’t just get hold of it. Can someone help?

    I could recall it was played at the scene when Nancy was Daniel Effiong on the sick bed, asking him to marry her.

  2. Please what is the name of the Chike’s song that was playing when nancy was being arrested at her movie premiere where she fell down and Daniel Etim carried her up.
