After successfully using Jackie Appiah and Majid Michel in the “Perfect Picture” and “A Sting In A Tale” respectively, Shirley has finally given Nadia Buari a chance in her recent movie called CheckMate.
This will be a big Hallelujah for Nadia Buari as she seeks to resurrect her dying career. Accept it or not, Nadia’s career is on its last legs as little is being heard or seen from her.
In CheckMate, “Kwame has made all the right moves in his life; a good job, a beautiful devoted wife, an adorable child, and an impending promotion as a senior customs officer at the airport.
But what seems like a typical guys hang out on a weekend away from home in the company of his new friend and mentor, Kiki, turns out to be the one wrong move Kwame makes. After losing a game of Chess, he succumbs to a bet to seduce the attractive, sexy Caroline.
A few weeks later, the consequences of a dirty forgotten weekend pops up in Kwame’s life threatening to destroy everything he so dearly loves. But the games are just beginning when he realizes that Caroline’s demand for his love is nothing compared to the demands of a drug lord who will do anything to get Kwame’s assistance in smuggling drugs out of the country.
With his entire life hanging on a thread, Kwame must try to win the game or risk losing everything.”
Apart from Nadia Buari, Check Mate features KSM, Naa Ashorkor, Ekow Blankson and introducing Khareema Aguiar, Kwaku Boateng & Senanu Gbedawo as Kwame Asante. Grand Premiere is on Thursday, 1st April, 2010 at National Theatre(6:30pm & 9pm).
