Jeta Amata's new movie, Inale

Award winning director, Jeta Amata, is preparing to come out with his most recent job, the first musical film produced by Keke Bongos called INALE.

The movie is a story of enchantment and intrigue, a legend of bravery and valour. Its theme revolves around the test of true love, and restoration of peace between warring communities.

The lead actress of the movie, Inale, played by Caroline Chikezie, is the beautiful daughter of the great King Oche of the Idoma people in Idomaland, Nigeria. Her beloved Odeh, played by Hakeem Kae-Kazim, must win their customary wrestling tournament to take Inale's hand in marriage.

The villagers had gathered for the big ceremony only to find a stranger in their midst, that challenges not only the tradition of the village law, but the strength of Odeh and Inale's true love.

The sound track of the movie featured original songs performed by Bongos Ikwue, along with special appearances from Ini Edo, Keppy Ekpenyoung, and Dede Mabiaku.

Jeta Amata is always one to watch. I enjoyed Amazing grace a lot and will watch out for this one.

For those in the US, Amazing Grace by Jeta Amata is on Netflix.

@skankmypeaceofmind, believe it or not there are Nigerians in London with Nigerian accents! I think it is good to see Caroline cross over.

Is caroline chikezie an english actor, biko nu. Is she not of Nigerian descent that happens to have an english accent. She is even lucky that she is acting in Nollywood movies. White pple have not finished procuring acting jobs in their country, not to talk of a person of Nigerian descent. Nne, the comptetition in Britain is fierce. Ask

I really look forward to watching this movie- I love Nigerian movies but find Nigerian accent a bit difficult to understand on screen(this may have something to do with the sound of the video itself rather than the voice itself)- I feel so proud to be a British woman of Nigerian descent (yep, British accent and all) and look forward to moving to Nigeria for good with my husband and children next year!
