A Modern Nigerian Interpretation of the Tale of King David – “D’Comeback” set to land in Nigerian Cinemas

Nigerian movie producers in the diaspora are gradually coming back home, their efforts have not gone unnoticed as it seems they have enriched the Nollywood  scene with new ideas and expertise in movie production. We have seen them pull it off in movies like Ije and The Tenant; here they come again with another stellar movie D’Comeback. Shot in the US, and the movie first premiered  in Bethesda, Maryland in April 2010.

According to Prominent Cease Entertainment, the producers of the movie, the aim of the outfit is to produce good movies that will pass a positive message to the people.

As Africans in the Diaspora, we seek to bring critical acclaim to the African movie industry by producing movies that go against the current norm: our movies will have good sound quality, interesting story line, good acting and send a positive message to our community”. Wale Odusanya the spokesperson for Prominent Cease Entertainment said.

Prominent Cease Entertainment is an entertainment company with a Christian foundation and a focus on bringing acclaim to the Nigerian and broader African Entertainment industry. The company is involved in scriptwriting, acting, music production, animation, marketing and business strategies. The outfit is out to change the landscape of the Nigerian and broader African Entertainment Industry by introducing quality entertainment to a worldwide audience in a way that showcases the richness of African talent and results in positive social change.

The movie synopsis:

D’Comeback is the story of David King. Loosely based on the biblical character, David, it is the story of a man of humble beginnings, who begins life with the right priorities and beliefs and slowly becomes a leader in his city. However, with great power comes great responsibility, and David has to learn how to handle the power that he now possesses. A story about rivalry, success, betrayal and finally redemption, D’Comeback takes you on a journey through a mans life and shows that ultimately, only Gods direction will lead to a truly successful life. The movie is an infusion of dance, drama, action, romance and comedy in order to convey the great message of this powerful story.

The movie will begin showing in Nigerian cinemas on the 1st of October 2010.

  • Brittle Paper August 31, 2010 at 10:21 am

    Are you kidding me? David and Goliath? They searched the nooks and crannies of Nigerian life and did not find a better story to tell and then decided to do a naija/dance/i don’t know what else interpretation of a biblical story? It is too late in the day for movies like this. We can do better.

    • Tmoney8172 August 31, 2010 at 4:50 pm

      I saw the movie twice! Once in D.C. and again in New York. It was awesome!!! Trust me, it’s not what you think, it’s an incredible twist. The acting surpasses what we have been getting in Nollywood.

  • ay August 31, 2010 at 10:23 am

    nice concept

  • Danna August 31, 2010 at 11:22 am

    Lets give it a chance now Brittle Paper, films are all about art and intrepretations, so lets not knock it till we try it. I know people that felt the same about Ije too, but it eneded up being very great. I am curious to see the way it was mordenized, i say dont knock it till you actually see it. Have you seen the film’s trailer or better still Ije?

    @ Brittle Paper, why not see the movie first before tearing it down? some people are just so negative.

  • Tmelodic September 1, 2010 at 1:04 am

    Saw this movie at the premiere and it was AWESOME!

  • Arike September 1, 2010 at 4:43 am

    I saw the movie already when it premiered in DC and I thought it was excellent. A different story line and twist instead of the typical naija movies. They also made a full soundtrack to the movie with about 10 songs on there I think and every single one is a hit. Naija is stepping up. Great job PCE!

  • Dowin September 1, 2010 at 4:43 pm
