Renowned Nollywood producer, Emem Isong-Misodi, will be premiering her new movie, AYAMMA, on Tuesday (December, 13, 2016) at the Lagos Intercontinental. The movie will be released in cinemas across Nigeria on Friday, December 23, 2016. According to the producer, the movie is a musical film done in the style of classic Nollywood epics, but with a contemporary touch and state-of-the-art technology.
AYAMMA was directed by Chris Eneaji and it stars Wale Ojo, Majid Michel, Adesua Etomi, Ime Bishop Umoh, and Theresa Edem.
Set in Akwa Ibom, AYAMMA tells the story of Prince Daraima (Wale Ojo), the heir to Obong Ikpaisong. He repeatedly dreams of Ihuoma (Adesua Etomi), a poor but beautiful maiden, whose beauty is matched only by her voice. In Daraima’s dreams, flowers blossom and birds gather when Ihuoma sings. He is in love with this girl of his dreams, but in the real world, Prince Daraima is betrothed to Princess Ama (Tinsel star, Theresa Edem), the arrogant child of a neighbouring monarch.
Prince Daraima is shocked to see the girl in his dreams as one of the maidens dancing at the welcome party of Princess Ama. Unknown to him, this is Iko, a poor maiden in the village who is an exact replica of Ihuoma and strangely possessing her same singing prowess. Princess Ama observes her groom-to-be captivated by Iko and resolves to nip this threat in the bud.
