Nollywood actor John “Mr Ibu” Okafor has revealed plans to address xenophobic attacks in South Africa with a new movie.
According to Vanguard, the said movie is in its pre-production stage.
Mr Ibu told journalists in Johannesburg that the movie will star actors from different countries in Africa. He added that the script is being written by “gifted individuals.”
I have plans to shoot a film on xenophobia. I will use mainly South African actors who will work with others from Nigeria, Ghana, Liberia, Kenya and Botswana.
What I want to achieve in the movie is to turn the table around and help in promoting peace on the long run.
The pre-production is on now. The scripting is also on. When I return to Nigeria, we will meet with the directors and technical crew to discuss the effects of the plot.
When the plot impacts on our thinking, then we would have achieved something.
He also announced plans of commencing the next phase by visiting other African countries to carry out auditions.
