We are so excited about this movie!

Historic Nigerian movie “Amina” has been in the production phase for over two years – with many more years devoted to the research of the project – and now we have a first look at the official trailer.

The movie was produced by a pioneer producer of Nollywood movies, Okechukwu Ogunjiofor and directed by Izu Ojukwu who also directed the intriguing movie “76”.

Synopsis

She lived in the age of man in a man’s world. In an ancient world of brutal conflicts, ferocious animal passions, supressive timeless customs, and reckless, herioc exploits, she must resolutely carve out a part for her life in the face of scandalised tradition and antagonistic male dominance. To grasp her destiny, she must prove herself not just as able, but infinitely more capable than any man alive. Fathered by the legendary warrior, expansionist,and empire builder Barkwa Turunku, Aminatu, alluring princess and first daughter to the renowned Barkwa nurses a burning ambition never before imagined: To sit as queen over a Zazzau empire that stretches from Kano to River Niger, from Idah to Jukunland. In an age of female subjugation and an oppressive, male sponsored traditional system, no sane woman would dare conceive such dreams; and only the most foolishly reckless would move on to attempt actualisation.

From warrior- princess to supreme millitary commander; from sorrowful lover to crafty politician; Amina must suppress natural feminine emotions in order to accomplish the impossible, attain the unattainables and ultimately convince the sceptical empire of her ability to make true Zazzau’s long cherished dreams of dominance over all of the sub-sahara. Pitted without, against panicked kings and Sarkis of neighbouring vassal states, and within; Zazzau’s ambitious war generals, princes, politicians, and the sinister all powerful Madawaki or minister of war whose hunger for the throne of Zazzau is equalled only by his lust for its lovely occupant; Amina must play statesman and millitary strategist, harlot and queen, ruthless executioner and gentle mother to Zazzau’s oppressed millions to achieve her goal of creating a better Zazzau, a more humane, civilised Zazzau standing on the foundations of modern-day governmental structures.

The movie expertly chronicles the legendary many lives of this exceptional woman; the pain and the agony caused by the betrayal of cherished lovers; the ferocious savagery in the face of all battles and enemies; the cunning manipulation at will of the nobles and sovereigns of kingdoms; and the tender concern over the down trodden Talakawas or common people.

The movie stars Lucy Ameh, Clarion Chukwura, Ali Nuhu and more.

    Not to be a party pooper, but I lost interest the minute I saw “Clarion Chukwukwa”

    Just like when God’s of Egypt came out and it was filled with Caucasians speaking American English.
    Anyways nice attempt.

      TF? Did you just equate race and tribe?! Like tribe within the same country? Bruh you dummer than a mug… and it keeps getting worse. It’s fine that you won’t be watching… in fact, you shouldn’t be watching any movies at all! It’s officially time for you to get off BN, take a class or two, and let the comment section be great. Jezzzz! So exasperating.

    You do know that Clarion is Nigerian right?!? Like all the non yorubas that act Yoruba movies we are from the same country so there is nothing to it, its not like she is a different race so why the comparison.

    “Did you just equate race and tribe?”

    Well since you brought it up, why can’t I equate race with tribe?
    Just as every race have unique characteristics, so do Nigeria tribes and even my comparison with Gods of Egypt was being generous.
    Gods of Egypt was purely fantasy, this documentary. When you’re making such movies you have to try be as accurate as possible – your biggest goal is telling a story and making people believe “this is what happened and this is how it happened” and that means cutting the weird sounding English and speak Hausa with English subtitles and please use actors from that region or get them to at least speak Hausa.

    Even Americans are just learning this. Go watch Netflix’s “Genius” (about Albert Einstein) and “Narcos” (About Colombian drug cartel), Watch “Silence” (starring Andrew Garfield) and you’ll see what I mean. It adds to the genuineness of your movie is all.

    @Wendy
    Stop taking things P. Life is not that hard. Even under Buhari.

      I see what you mean, but its still a commendable effort.

    • Seriously

      September 13, 2017 at 6:20 pm

      I agree with you to an extent but what about those actors who are not from that region neither do they speak the language but nail it because they are such talented versatile actors.
      Hollywood is known for the misrepresentation of Africa and Africccccans, they like to white wash it. , and it’s quite frustrating.
