Veteran Ghanaian actress Nana Ama McBrown has starred in an American film titled ‘Coming To Africa’.
Ghverse.com understands that the movie, written and directed by American filmmaker Anwar Jamison, was shot in Accra and Memphis.
YEN.com.gh reports that the Accra scenes in the movie were shot in 2019, during the Year of Return celebrations.
The movie (A romantic comedy) is plotted around a Black American man (Jamison) who lives in his comfort zone and refuses to criticize any social ills for the fear of upsetting his privilege life.
But when something happens and he visits Ghana (Africa), his perspective changes after he meets and falls in love with Akosua, a role played by McBrown.
A synopsis of the film on Imdb.com reads:
“Adrian (Anwar Jamison), a philandering financial executive, has spent his entire life shunning Black consciousness and chasing corporate success. Adrian’s brother, Buck (Khalil Kain), is an activist who routinely holds community meetings in his barbershop. After a perfect storm of disappointment and discrimination, Adrian finds himself in Ghana on an amusing adventure where he meets Akosua (Nana Ama McBrown) and finds nourishment for his soul.”
The movie is set to be released on October 2020 after it missed its earlier release date due to obvious reasons.
Jamison announced by shared a selection poster of the movie on his Instagram page:
Meanwhile, behind-the-scenes photos from the movie involving the actress popped up earlier on social media and fans couldn’t keep calm as McBrown is seen playing the role of a ‘galamsey’ woman (illegal miner) going on the risky venture with other men.
