A private screening of Nollywood filmmaker, Emem Isong Misodi‘s new movie, Ayamma held last weekend at Silverbird Galleria with the attendance of Majid Michel, Adesua Etomi, Wale Ojo, Emem Isong, Jonathan Ben-Bruce, Theresa Edem, officials from Bank of Industry, media and more.
Set in Akwa Ibom, Ayamma is the story of Prince Daraima (played by Wale Ojo), the charming heir to Obong Ikpaisong, who repeatedly dreams of Ihuoma (played by Adesua Etomi), a poor but beautiful maiden whose beauty is matched only by her voice. In Daraima’s dreams, flowers blossoms and birds gather when Ihuoma sings. He is in love with the girl of his dreams. In the real world, Prince Daraima readies to marry Princess Ama (played by Theresa Edem), the arrogant child to a neighboring Monarch. During a dance presentation to welcome princess Ama to the kingdom, Daraima is shocked to see that one of the dancing maidens is Ihuoma– a girl who hitherto existed only in his dreams. Unbeknownst to him, this is Iko, a poor maiden in the village who’s an exact replica of Ihuoma and strangely possessing the same singing genius. Princess Ama observes her groom-to-be captivated by Iko and resolves to nip this obvious threat in the bud.
The movie stars Wale Ojo, Majid Michel, Adesua Etomi, Theresa Edem, Ime Bishop Umoh, Moses Armstrong, Ekere Ekanga and many more.
It was produced by Emem Isong Misodi and directed by Chris Eneaji.
