Half of a Yellow Sun: Most Expensive Nollywood Movie

Half of a Yellow Sun

In case you don’t know, transcendent novel of many descriptive triumphs – Half of a Yellow Sun, a book written by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has been adopted into a movie.

The movie was shot at Tinapa Film Studio, Cross River State, and in the United Kingdom.

The yet to be released film, directed by Biyi Bandele, has most of its cast and crew flown from abroad. The cast comprised Britons and Nigerians such as Chiwetel Ejiofor of Kinky Boots, American Gangster, 2012, Salt; Thandie Newton (Mission: Impossible II, Crash, The Pursuit of Happiness); Anika Noni Rose (Dreamgirls, The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, For Coloured Girls); Joseph Mawle (Women in Love, Game of Thrones); John Boyega (Attack the Block); Onyeka Onwenu, Nigerian singer and actress; Genevieve Nnaji and Zack Orji.

Before the emergence of ‘Half of a Yellow Sun,’ ‘Tango with Me’ produced by Mahmoud Ali-Balogun, ranked the most expensive film. Shot with the latest Kodak 35mm camera, ‘Tango with Me’ costs over N50 million to make, says Ali-Balogun. In a bid to make a difference in an industry populated by poorly produced films, Balogun travelled to Bulgaria to master film technology. The end product of the trip was an outstanding film that ‘Half of a Yellow Sun’ has rivalled.

The movie is said to become the most expensive Nollywood movie ever worth about N1.27billion in production cost, new reports claim.

 

 

Atiku begins 2015 campaign by giving shoes to the shoe-less

In preparation for his 2015 massive campaign, former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar gives out shoes to the shoe-less.

Reasons behind his motive cannot to be totally ascertained as at the time of this post, but it is believed that he, Mr Atiku is trying to give back to Nigerians what the incumbent president deceitfully took away during his campaign.

But the questions on the lips of so many still remains, should Atiku provide shoes for the shoe-less, will the shoes cater for  more 100 million people? Since it is believed that 85% of Nigerians live below $1 (N150.00) per day.

The political routine in Nigeria still remains on the table of ‘give-and-take’ i.e. if he gives shoes to the shoe-less and they vote him into power, you can be sure he would take back the shows 2-weeks after his swearing-in.

Alhaji Atiku, please be careful what you wish you wish for.
