This was disclosed by a source close to Ike, that the movie is a spinoff of the actor’s involvement with the training of ex-militants from the Niger Delta, a project he is so dedicated to. “This is a big one for Nollywood. As you read this, plans have been concluded to bring 50 Cent to Nigeria to feature in a new movie.
50 cent will be starring alongside Nigerian big names including ex-militants who have renounced violence for peace. The ex-militants underwent special training in acting, cinematography and the basics of filmmaking and production under Emeka Ike in Ghana.
The objective is to practically demonstrate how movies could be used as a tool for empowering restive Nigerian youths,” the source said. Skoops further learnt that work on the movie will begin before the end of the first quarter of this year.
