Nigerian Filmmaker Uche Aguh made a Concept Film for Chimamanda Adichie’s “Americanah” and it’s Pretty Interesting to Watch


Uche Aguh is a promising new Nigerian filmmaker and he recently released an impressive concept trailer for Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie‘s Americanah. A couple of months ago, Americanah was picked up to be produced by Brad Pitt’s production company, Plan B (12 Years a Slave), with Lupita Nyong’o and David Oyelowo set to star in it.

However, the film is still looking to attach a writer and director – and those are the roles Uche Aguh is hoping to prove he can fill with this concept film.

Americanah tells the story of young love torn apart by migration and the constant search for greener pastures. It is a deeply moving and profound story that challenges the idea of race, class, nationality, and socio-economic status. Its protagonist, Ifemelu, is a brilliant young girl uprooted from her home in Lagos, Nigeria and transplanted, in North America. Her identity becomes questionable, when she suddenly realizes that she’s now labelled a Black-American.

New quiz programme, The Movie Buff Show premieres on Africa Magic Showcase


The Movie Buff Show, a new quiz television programme, is set to premiere this Saturday, February 4, 2017, on Africa Magic Showcase. Film journalist and TV presenter, Isabella Akinseye, is the host. According to Akinseye, who is also the writer, “The Movie Buff Show is for the true fans of African cinema. It is a show that that celebrates our African movie stars. Each episode a contestant answers questions on an actor they are crushing on for the chance to wine and dine with them. At the end of 12 episodes, the person with the highest score wins the date which will be shown on the finale show.”


Speaking about the production experience, she says, “The Movie Buff Show is a collaboration between my company, Yellow Tamarind Productions and GCue Studios. It was a very interesting experience as I got to share the screen with people passionate about our films and stars. I also enjoyed playing the role of the Quiz Mistress, something I have always loved to do.” Akinseye, however, admits that not everything was rosy citing the scripting of the show as challenging. “There is a dearth of information when it comes to our industry. We need more books, journals, videos, websites and magazines documenting the progress of Nollywood and African cinema in general. The actors too need to play their part by having functional and well maintained websites. It also helps if they are active on social media.”

 During the first season of The Movie Buff Show Show, contestants will answer questions on actors such as Iretiola Doyle, O.C. Ukeje Kehinde Bankole, Odunlade Adekola, Rita Dominic and Ibinabo Fiberesima. The Movie Buff Show will air every Saturday at 4: 30 pm on Africa Magic Showcase, Dstv Channel 151.


Isabella started her film journalism career writing movie reviews for magazines while still a student at the University of Cambridge. She followed this up with articles in newspapers before starting her online film and television magazine, Nolly Silver Screen.

In 2015, she was selected as a talent for Durban International Film Festival and in the following year, she attended the prestigious Berlinale Talent where she honed her journalistic skills under the mentorship of international film critics. In 2016, Isabella hosted The Clapperboard Show, a magazine TV programme that features African movie reviews and interviews with key players in Nigeria’s film industry. Other hosting credits include The FrontPage on Radio Continental, Africana Literati on Africa Magic Family, Bookaholic with Bella on Silverbird Television and Rubbin Minds on Channels Television.
