ICYMI: AY enlists Kanayo O Kanayo, Segun Arinze for ‘Almajiri’

AY, Nigerian comedian cum actor, has enlisted Kanayo O Kanayo, Segun Arinze and Annie Idibia for ‘Almajiri‘, his forthcoming movie.

In an Instagram post on Wednesday, the entertainer said the project will detail the sad tales of children grapplling with poverty in the northern part of the country.

“The most honest form of filmmaking it to make a film that tells our stories and existing realities. We are currently on working  on a film tilted Almajiri. It is based on true life experiences in the northern part of Nigeria,” the film producer wrote.

“The movie Almajiri is designed to tell a very common story of children who are subjected to the high level of poverty faced by most families living in that region.

“These children often wander the streets begging for food, clothes, and other necessities thus making them vulnerable to chronic ill-health, sexual and physical abuse, human trafficking, slavery, drugs etc. This is something unusual and different coming from the AY brand.”

Arinze also shared pictures from the movie on his own page, noting that the project aims to amplify the truth.

“Film making is an art that demands your body and soul as you strive to give your best. The Actor’s joy is in the truth. The moments he/she creates and the reality he/she lives in,” he wrote.
Some other movie stars that featured in the project include Alexx Ekubo, Rahama Sadau, Seyi Law, Ali Nuhu and Sani Danger.
