March Movie Madness: MultiChoice premieres Nollywood classics, thrillers
Africa Magic has prepared an overload of brand-new movies for their viewers throughout March in what is tagged March Movie Madness.
The audience will enjoy a total of 55 new Nollywood film titles on Africa Magic Urban (DStv ch. 153) and Showcase (151). Of these fifty-five movies, 25 will premiere on Africa Magic Showcase on different days of the week. While the remaining 30 films will air on Africa Magic Urban every day in March – Africa Magic viewers will enjoy up to four movies on some days.
Ahead of the ninth edition of the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards, the platform is proving why they are regarded as Africa’s greatest storytellers with the release of these films. Ten of the movies that will air on AM Showcase were commissioned and their production was monitored by Africa Magic and MultiChoice. So, viewers should expect only the very best in storylines and production quality. 15 others were acquired from brilliant Nollywood producers like Jay Franklyn Jituboh, Agatha Amata, and Biodun Stephen.
The mix of themes and genres on this roster of 55 films presents something for every film aficionado as there is a mix of genres where everyone gets a good cocktail of everything they love from horror, thriller, comedy, psychological drama, romantic comedy, and so much more.
The Head of Content and West Africa Channels, Dr Busola Tejumola, spoke about the decision to launch the movie marathon and what it means for subscribers. She said, “As a brand, we’ve always been committed to telling true African stories, sharing the complexities of what makes us unique. This roster of 55 movies does just that – telling stories about different facets of us as Africans and our culture. Every single film will open viewers up to a new point of view. We know they have been produced with the best standards, and we believe that viewers will enjoy watching them.”
