TRUE STORY NOLLYWOOD (TSN); THE DOCUMENTARY

True Story Nollywood premieres February 26, 2013 at New York’s Anthology Film Archives. The film is about the stories written and told by the world’s third largest film industry, Nollywood.

TSN documents the opinions about the authenticity of the African narrative in Nollywood films; a fast growing African film industry thought to be losing itself to the Western culture.

Produced by a young up and coming filmmaker of Nigerian/Cameroonian descent, Ihuoma Mambo Atanga (pictured), True Story Nollywood highlights various subjects of discourse surrounding the topic, among prominent Nollywood filmmakers and people based in her current city of residence, New York City, including renowned Nollywood director, Tunde Kelani.

Inspired by the great conversations and writings of prominent works like Chimamanda’s “Danger of a Single Story”, Wainaina’s “How To Write About Africa”, and Achebe’s “An Image of Africa”, Ms Atanga notes “I became more aware of a magnificent transitionary phase of African storytelling, from a biographical to an autobiographical state. Affordable film technology has enabled Africans to now write their own stories and broadcast it to the entire world through one of the most pervasive mediums - film. So people naturally expect that stories from Africans by Africans make up a definitive and true African story”
True Story Nollywood examines the educated opinions, gossip, lies and truths behind the evolution and authenticity of Nollywood stories from the perspective of industry connoisseurs, Michael Nwaesi, Oliver Mbamara, Tunde Kelani, and a host of Nollywood film enthusiasts.

The viewer is sure to go through an array of mixed emotions as varying opinions are categorically spewed for the audience to critically ingest.

The TSN production team is an all female group consisting of co-producer Tarisai Gombe and cinematographer Olubusola Ajayi.

The below fifteen-minute documentary serves as a teaser and introduction to a much larger project due to be announced in the Autumn of 2013.

RAP STAR JOVI PARTS FROM MUMAK RECORDS!!!

We are very saddened to report that raving rap star JOVI who is currently the most talked about rap artist in Cameroon has moved on from his partnership with award winning MuMaK record label which he created together with his manager and long time friends Jules Nya and Rachel Applewhite.

The artist and music producer under his sobriquet of ‘‘Le Monstre’’ has started his own independent record label called New Bell Music which will going forward represent him and rising gospel sensation Renise and Rachel Applewhite.

MuMaK vows to continue making great music and producing quality artists including, hip hop act, Magasco and afro pop artist/producer, Mr Elad with Jules Nya still at the helm as CEO.

This decision does not affect our relationship as friends and professionals. It is merely a mutual and consensual understanding for the sake of structural convenience. We will still continue working together in future endeavours” states Jules. “We would also like to thank our fans for supporting us throughout and also reassure them that all is well” he added.

We are very very sad about this but we wish them well and hope they'll both go onto higher platforms.
