The new movie will premiere at the Silverbird Cinemas-Accra Mall tonight (January 2) at 6pm.
‘Ghana Must Go’ is Yvonne Okoro’s Desamour Company Limited second movie production—with the first being the multiple award-winning ‘Contract.’
It stars; Yvonne Okoro, Kofi Adjorlolo, Luckie Lawson, Blossom Chukwujekwu, Nkem Owoh and several others.
Ama arrives in Accra with her fiancée Chuks. She is met at the airport by her brother Kwabena, who is stunned to realize he is Nigerian- a slight but huge detail that Ama has omitted to inform her family …and for good reason too.
On reaching the Kanga family house in Accra, it suddenly dawn on Chuks that Ama is actually from a rather affluent family. Her mother Dolores is an Accra high society lady and her father Alex is a retired senior army officer and wealthy industrialist.
They have all been under the impression that Chuks is an American, Australian or Namibian …just not Nigerian. When the secret is discovered it creates havoc in the household, with Alex reaching for his shotgun. He has a deep-seated dislike for Nigerians since Ghanaians were booted out of Nigeria in Ghana-Must-Ghana exodus of 1983.
To save Chuks, Ama blurts out that she and Chuks secretly got married in London a couple of weeks ago. More shocks, revelations and intrigue!

When Alex eventually calms down, he takes Chuks into confidence by telling him that he will only grant his blessing on their union if Chuks can persuade Ama to relocate home to Ghana and work in his firm. Chuks agrees to the deal. All now seems partially well.
However before Chuks can put this plan into action, another break-failed freight train comes thundering into town- in the shape of his father Ignatius and his extended family who have suddenly arrived en masse in Accra from their village in Eastern Nigeria, accompanied by an entourage of Ghana-Must-Go bags!
The arrival of this brash, rural Igbo clan in the wealthy and uppity household of their Ghanaian in-laws for the weekend threaten to tear Amma and Chuks apart and will prove to be the biggest test of their young marriage so far.
