Majid flying a plane on Somewhere In Africa set
Award-winning Ghanaian movie ‘Somewhere In Africa’ will be hitting the big screens on Saturday April 7 at the National Theatre in Accra.
The Saturday premiere will be part of the Easter holiday activities to keep Accra alive.
Many enthusiasts who saw ‘Somewhere In Africa’ described it as a good movie. It will be recalled that the movie got 12 nominations for the Nollywood & African Film Critics’ Awards (NAFCA).
The movie tells a gripping story of Yusuf Mumbasa (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 streets 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 citizenries, is a total deviation from the normal love-dominated movies that have flocked the Ghanaian and African movie markets.
The film stars the crème de la crème of Ghana’s movie industry, with Majid Michel playing a dual role as a journalist and military leader.
The rest include David Dontoh, Kofi Adjorlolo, Amornobea Dodoo, Eddie Nartey, Roslyn Ngissah, Martha Ankomah, Eddie Watson, Helen Asante, Gloria Sarfo and Eve Asare.
Frank Raja Arase had, in an earlier interview, described the movie as one of his best and said it was a significant movie for Africans.
“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 it is something that is really happening in Accra. 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 an African.”
