Young Ghanaian actor and producer, Enock Darko who’s better known as ‘watabombshell’ is doing well in Nollywood. Enock left the shores of Ghana a few years ago to Nigeria in his quest to save his budding acting career.
“ I left to Nigeria to get roles to play in movies and the best part was I got accepted by Nollywood directors,” he said.
For most new movies being produced in Nigeria, Enoch is the face to see. He recently got featured in a movie called ‘Joro’, starring Nollywood star Destiny Etiko and Ghana’s own Toosweet Annan which got a lot of attention during the COVID-19 lockdown time. Enoch has acted alongside other Nollywood legends like Patience Ozokwo, Zack Orji amongst others and as if that’s not enough, he has hinted of a new movie coming out soon titled JEHOVAH WITNESS ft Osita Iheme (PAWPAW), produced by Uchenna Mbunabo.
Addressing the issue of Ghana’s failing movie industry, Enoch’s concern is on how young talents are not being allowed to showcase their talents and how the media is projecting foreign content and pushing Ghana’s to the background.
“I’m urging the Ghanaian government to ban all telenovela content being shown by the media houses to allow for more local content and also producers must work hard to save the Ghanaian movie industry” he added.
Enoch has upcoming projects like ‘The Couple’ and ‘Jehovah’s Witness’ coming soon amidst an epic series featuring a lot of Nollywood stars.
Daniel Kaluuya Shares Motivation Behind Upcoming Live-Action ‘Barney’ Film
Daniel Kaluuya shared an interesting take on Barney, and the motivation behind his up-coming live-action adaptation of the children’s series. The 31-year-old British actor is producing what will be a sobering interpretation of the lovable purple T-Rex, one that Kaluuya says is “really needed” at the moment.
“Barney taught us, ‘I love you, you love me. Won’t you say you love me too?’ That’s one of the first songs I remember, and what happens when that isn’t true? I thought that was really heartbreaking,” Kaluuya told Entertainment Weekly in an interview promoting his upcoming film Judas and the Black Messiah. “I have no idea why but it feels like that makes sense. It feels like there’s something unexpected that can be poignant but optimistic. Especially at this time now, I think that’s really, really needed.’’
Mattel Films is co-producing the live-action Barney film alongside Kaluuya’s production company, 59%, and Valparaiso Pictures.
Barney & Friends originally aired on PBS from 1992-2009. The purple dinosaur and his sidekick, B.J. and Baby Bop, taught legions of young viewers educational messages through songs and dance.
Aside from Barney, Kaluuya opened up to EW about portraying Black Pantry Party member Fred Hampton in Judas and The Black Messiah, co-starring Lakeith Stanfield.
“One of my aspirations was to show how brilliant these people were in every way, and what they were really doing, to show the full picture, away from the narrow narrative that has been portrayed. Show what they were really doing in this time, and how revolutionary their ideas were. It didn’t necessarily mean destruction. They were actually about healing and loving and taking care of your community. These activities do not feel like they’re associated with the Black Panther party but that’s the foundation of it, which is why it spread.”
