Somewhere In Africa’, the movie on the lips of everyone, will hit the big screens on Saturday. 
The movie will be premiered at the National Theatre in Accra, on July 30. ‘Somewhere In Africa’ tells a gripping story of Yusuf Mumbasa, played by Majid Michel, who after escaping an assassination attempt by the King of Kimbala, managed to capture power via a coup d’état and ordered the killing of all previous government appointees.
The minority including students went on the street to demonstrate, but Yusuf would not accept that.
The movie, which recaptures the heinous stories of how leaders of some African countries have been maltreating their citizenry, is a total deviation from the normal love-dominated movies that have flooded the Ghanaian and African movie markets.
The crème de la crème of Ghana’s movie industry in the movie include Majid Michel playing a dual role as journalist and military leader. The rest include veteran actors David Dontoh, Kofi Adjorlolo, Amornabea Dodoo, Eddie Nartey, Roslyn Ngissah, Martha Ankomah, Eddie Watson, Helen Asante, Gloria Sarfo, Eve Asare and a number of others.
Director Frank Raja Arase in an earlier interview described the movie as one of his best and said it was a significant movie for Africans, hence they must watch it and get the message in it.
“The message and scenes from the movie were to bring people’s (Africans’) mind to the realization that this is not just a movie but something that is really happening in Africa. It is an awakening call. The movie is not just to entertain but mirror you and see what is happening. Let it reflect on you as Africans.”
