Shirley Frimpong-Manso’s Political Series “Shampaign” starring Blossom Chukwujekwu, Joselyn Dumas & More is a Must Watch!



Joselyn Dumas

We love how the African movie industry is merging into one big amazing work of art.

The latest series that we are sure we’ll be hooked on when it premiere is Shirley Frimpong-Manso’s political drama series “Shampaign”.

“Shampaign” follows the unruly lives of a young political campaign team who work tirelessly to make political history by getting a single mother elected as the first female President of the Country while dealing with their own personal demons.

The series has an eclectic mix of people including Blossom Chukwujekwu, Joselyn Dumas, John Dumelo, Jot Agyeman, Nana Aba Anamoah, Fred Amugi, Zynnell Zuh, Akorfa Adjeani-Asiedu, Anima Amisa Amoah and more.

Watch the trailer below.

The series is set to kick off in April 2016.

See some character posters below.

Blossom Chukwujekwu John Dumelo JEFFERY FORSON plays the young handsome but naively ambitious OBIRI who finds out too late that dating a married woman could have very dangerous consequences JOT AGYEMANG is PRESIDENT HENRY KOFI MALM. Affable, charismatic and popular. He starts a war between two women that may eventually be his undoing. MARIAN ADDO plays ASHIOKOR tough, street smart and local champion. This 'capo' knows the bad guys and isn't afraid to take them on. MIRIAM AMA SAAKA plays AKU BROWN an unassuming go-getter driven to blackmail by her family problems. OFIE KODJOE plays MRS HYDE a flamboyant and assertive woman who carries with her a badly scared past which threatens everything in her present. TINELL DICKENS plays the tough feminist MP (member of parliament) who is particularly unforgiving of women she thinks don't support their own. AKOFA EDJEANI plays MENAYE QUANSAH the protective almost carefree big sister out for big revenge.

      It challenges societal norms, and why not. If reality is limiting why curb your imagination

      @George Why is it unrealistic? Don’t you know that life imitates art. Personally, I love story lines that showcase women in power. It is about time the African film industry present African women in roles of leadership, Entrepreneurs, diplomats, doctors and politicians. Such images can actually inspire younger girl to be ambitious. Why should the film industry continue to produce silly movies like runs girls, Brazilian hair war, white hunters and blackberry babes.

      dats not the point im making and there is no challenging societal norms here, it just doesnt makes sense maybe 20 yrs from nw!!!and the only problem i have with the industry making run girls and the rst kind of movies is that they do not make them well!!! as much as i love creativity this to me is unrealistic

    I’m sorry but this just has so many Shonda Rhimes scandal series in many forms just that its in African format, like even up to the video title montage at the end was largely imitated. I am addicted to scandal so I know. I do love shirley but disappointed with the obvious imitation. But its a good imitation, I just wish She will be more original.

      Ever wondered that Shonda Rhimes got her ideas from somewhere too? My point is there is nothing new under the sun and besides not everyone knows about ABC’s Scandal America. Hey there is also a South Africa soup opera called Scandals too which to me is fantastic. Shirley frimpong’s ‘A Sting in the tail’ and ‘6 hours to Christmas’ got me hooked unto her movies, She is really good.

    @Natu ohmygosh, wouldn’t it be something if Beyonce’s Formation made it on the show somehow: probably not a theme song, how about someone’s ringtone? :DDDD
