Halita’, a new drama series set in the northern part of Nigeria and parading several Nollywood stars, is set to hit the airwaves from February 4.
It tells the story of a young woman who is forced to flee the village and a crooked suitor, only to face the intrigue and drama of a new life in the city with a powerful family.
Can a village girl impact a set of people set up high on their ego, wealth, secrets and insecurities? This one mystery that the viewer will have to unravel after seeing the series.
Some of the cast members of the new drama series are Ummi Ahmed, Boma Elamiena and Eddy Madaki.
A fast-rising Nollywood actress and model, Chisom Gabriella, is playing the lead character, ‘Halita’.
At an exclusive media screening of the first episode in Lagos on Wednesday, the Channel Director, Africa Magic, Wangi Mba Uzoukwu, described the project as “a tale of family, fortune and fame.”
“Halita demonstrates yet again our commitment to telling the best stories out of Africa for Africa. It is guaranteed to provide the exciting entertaining content that the Africa Magic channels are renowned for.
“The production values are stellar, and the performances are worthy of critical acclaim. Lovers of exciting African entertainment content would do well to tune in and watch the show,” she added.
‘Halita’ premieres on Africa Magic Family, DStv channel 154 and GOtv channel 2.
A South African comedian Trevor Noah to produce a movie featuring an 8 year old Nigerian chess champion.
South African comedian and host of American talk show, The Daily Show, Trevor Noah, is developing a film about the eight-year-old Nigerian chess prodigy, Tanitoluwa Adewumi.
Adewumi’s story broke the internet in March after he was profiled by the New York Times for winning the state’s chess championship.
Noah will produce the film under his Day Zero Productions imprint alongside business partner, Haroon Salem.
The film has also been acquired by Paramount Studios.
Adewumi had only been playing chess for a year when he won the New York State Scholastic Chess Championship in 2018.
He learned to play chess from a teacher at school.
The plot of the film centres on the Adewumi family’s survival story of seeking asylum only to become homeless in New York, and the lengths that parents would go for their children.
After their story began spreading on social media, the family got donations of over $250,000 through GoFundMe.
The film’s script would be adapted from a trio of books on the family, which would be released through HarperCollins’ W Publishing imprint in 2020.
