The highly anticipated movie ’76 was officially unveiled yesterday at a press conference in Lagos attended by actress Rita Dominic, Regional Director of M-Net West Africa, Wangi Mba-Uzoukwu, Director Izu Ojukwu, Executive Producer of 76 and a patron of the Nigerian Association of Movie Producers, Prince Tonye T.J.T Princewill and more.

Speaking on the movie, Regional Director of M-Net West Africa, Wangi Mba-Uzoukwu said: “76 is an adventurous foray into filmmaking in Nigeria. It’s an exciting, compelling storyline that many Nigerians and indeed Africans will relate with. The directing and production quality are top notch, and the themes celebrate values including courage, loyalty, patience, trust and sacrifice. 76 takes filmmaking up another level in Nigeria and we at Africa Magic are indeed excited to partner with Adonis Productions and Princewill’s trust in bringing this movie to viewers across Africa.”

Directed by award winning director, Izu Ojukwu, 76 is inspired by events which led up to and followed the botched 1976 coup d’etat, and features real life, archived, actual footage that contributes to the movie’s overall authenticity. The execution of the movie was also done with approval and support from the Nigerian Army.

Izu Ojukwu, said: “76 tells a tale of love in the time of war. The movie deals with a range of issues including the plight of the African woman, and the usually invisible pain of a soldier’s wife. 76 highlights the enduring Nigerian cultural values of courage, resilience, patience, loyalty, faith and family and the nation’s ability to surmount all challenges.”

The press conference was followed by a private, exclusive screening later in the day.

    Lol @ DSTV are criminals. Unsubscribe then. Ehn, missing the Biola Alabi’s finesse and sophistication she brings to Africa magic. This new regional manager? Hmmmm…. and why are they even tagging with movies sef? They tagged with Genny’s road to yesterday movie and it has cleared half the amvca nominations, doesnt that look kinda biased? Does the Oscars or Grammy do that? Who knows, maybe amvca is doing their own different but it screams bias to me sha. People and fans, please shine your eyes. DStv, shine your eyes, you people want to try and do ‘magomago’ abi? Its not good oh. As they say on Linda Ikeji, Linda take note, so Bella Naija, take note, 419 wan take style enter this matter.

      Because they are sponsors and they will eventually get the syndication rights to the films. Stop being dumb, Nigeria has less than 25 official cinemas in total. A movie like this probably cost over $500K to produce, how else do you think they will recoup their earnings as well as make profit? With TV atleast there is a sure amount coming in due to syndication, Product placements and advertisements. WIthin a year of release this movie will make over $1 M, and probably $500 K – $ 1M every year afterwards the more it syndicated. Stupid Africans can’t see past their own noses and wonder why our continents is light years behind. Why do you think Bill cosby still earns over 20 Million dollars a year even if he hasn’t acted in a tv series or movie in over 2 decades? Not to talk of Seinfeld.

    Rita is always wearing wigs. Now a braids wig. What happened to her natural hair. Or is it so damaged that she can’t show it

    • eyong

      Or maybe she doesn’t want to damage her hair with nonsense chemicals like half of you idiots, so she takes a safer approach? Or she doesn’t like seating for ten hours of pain and discomfort so that her hair can be plated? Rubbish.
