New Movie: Somewhere In Africa
New Movie: Somewhere In Africa

‘Somewhere In Africa’ is a movie that seeks to tell the African story in the African way. Instead of waiting for foreigners to come and mess with our story and the truth about what has happened or what is happening in Africa,  Frank Rajah Arase has gathered some of the brave and talented faces in the African movie industry to unveil the dark secrets that engulf certain parts of Africa in ‘Somewhere In Africa.’

Africa has come a long way. From colonial exploitations to dictatorships and oppressions from our own leaders.  The latter is being told by us today in ‘Somehere In Africa’…. Below is what the movie is about…

In a town where bloodthirsty militants have subjected the government to a coup d’ etat, life has become unpredictable. It’s difficult to know whether you will wake up to a brilliant morning sun, which promises a day of solemnity, or a shimmering moon, which echoes the shouts of death.

In the wake of the seemingly normalcy of a capricious life, a new regime is established in Kimbala town; the superlative Military regime of Yusuf Mumbasa! Thirstier and fiercer than his predecessors, the people of Kimbala are dumb by his extreme ruthlessness.

The strongest of men are hit down to nothing more than a murmur; the influential are coiled in their shells in total stillness and the civilians hide behind the hypocritical facet of patriotism! Who will dare stop Mumbasa?! Widows cry, orphans wail and the whole town mourns in complete silence!!!

In the time when a couple of determined souls uses a weapon that has no bullet or sharp edges to overcome Mumbasa and yet fail miserably, there arises a group of fearless combatants; a group of unstoppable young students who refuse to fall into the category of the coward!

Their audacity is reinforced by their esteemed solidarity to seek justice for the family of their widowed vice principal, whose husband fell victim to the callous acts of Mumbasa. At this juncture, it cannot be told who is fiercer-the students or Mumbasa!

But is that necessary? When all that matters is who wins at the end! It is a war of fate, not only for the students, but for Mumbasa as well.

Can these unarmed, inexperienced and relatively feeble minor students bring the well shielded wall of the fearsome tyrant down?! Time tells, but only the end of this story can give us the answer.

‘Somewhere In Africa’  features Majid Michel, Martha Ankomah, Eddie Nartey, Roselyn Ngissah , Kofi Adjorlolo, David Dontoh and others.

  1. Hmmm asemm, Majid reminds me of JJ Rawlings here. The movie look good, i will watch it, and big up to Frank Rajah, its better to do movies like dat

  2. My 10 yeah old son and I watched a clip of the Moive trailer and we both cried. He was amazed to see the reality of the struggles for justice in Africa and how far we have come. This movie will be very emotional and will tell a the true story which will be beneficial to our children and many generations to come. Two thumbs up to the cast and crew!

    • I know i will cry just like you and your son did when am watching it.  but errmmmm……..i think its normal to cry, yeah?

  3. Am seeing a different side of Roselyn in this movie. Now all i need to do is to wait till i get to watch this movie for FREE. LOL

    • yes. That girl got talent! She is yet to burst for everybody to see how good she is. We all know she is not that pretty but is about time.. we move the beauty aside and pay attention to the talent like Jackie.. she’s pretty but not talented.. trust me. 

        • wow ..i second with ya maame ..Roselyn is damn talented ..i regonize talent when i see one ..but i thought maame u die hard fan of jackie so u not gonna say the truth abt her …but anyway thats the truth ..

        • both jackie and nadia are not talented actresses period. jackie is usually bad at expression emotions on the screen while nadia just acts immature on screen. jackie always have this same look on the face when expressing emotions, and nadia ia also bad at portraying sexiness. to me the best actresses in ghana are martha nkomah, rosylyn ngissah, victoria zugah, luckie lawson, yvonne okoro, beverly afaglo and gloria. of course their effort is not recognized because they hve been overshadowed by talentless jackie and nadia.
