Ghanaian screen goddess and actress, Nana Ama McBrown has been featured in an upcoming American movie titled ‘Coming To Africa’
The movie, written and directed by American filmmaker Anwar Jamison with the majority of the film shot in Accra, Ghana, during The Year of Return celebration, and the remainder was filmed in Memphis, TN.
From what we have gathered, the Accra scenes in the movie were shot in 2019, during the Year of Return celebrations.
The movie is woven around a Black American man (Jamison) who lives in his comfort zone and refuses to criticise any social ills for the fear of upsetting his privileged life.
But when something happens and he visits Ghana (Africa), his perspective changes after he meets and falls in love with Akosua, a role played by McBrown.
A synopsis of the film on Imdb.com reads: “Adrian (Anwar Jamison), a philandering financial executive, has spent his entire life shunning Black consciousness and chasing corporate success. Adrian’s brother, Buck (Khalil Kain), is an activist who routinely holds community meetings in his barbershop. After a perfect storm of disappointment and discrimination, Adrian finds himself in Ghana on an amusing adventure where he meets Akosua (Nana Ama McBrown) and finds nourishment for his soul.”
Ahead of the release, a trailer of the movie has popped up online showing McBrown in action.
Apart from McBrown, the trailer shows other Ghanaian movies stars including David Dontoh and Paulina Oduro.
