AWARD winning Nollywood film producer, director and actor Andy Boyo is
on Monday July 7, expected in the country with another array of
Award winning Nollywood actors to yet again Premiere another
blockbuster movie Cobra .
July 11, is the date! One of the stars that fans would be looking forward to meet upon arrival in Lusaka is the deep voiced veteran actor Alex Usifo though the other two stars Frederick Leonard and Chinwe Isaac are equally loved faces on the African entertainment screens.
But truth be told, Alex is likely to steal the limelight as many Zambian enthusiasts are so familiar with his face more especially that he made one of the main casts in the recently premiered movie Off the Hook which also stared Ghana’s celebrated Jackie Apiah and Prince David Osai.
Now, through what Andy Boyo was able to deliver in Off the Hook premiere, there is no doubt that many would really want to come and see yet another mind-blowing Andy Boyo offering in Cobra.
The seemingly interesting and captivating story of Cobra sees Princess Hilda and her husband pay a ransom in gold coins worth US$1 million used for the release of their kidnapped daughter by chief Ashonowo and his cohort.
To have a swift and affective operation the Crime ring employs Cobra for the collection of the ransom.
Chief Ashonowo being a shroud criminal lord received the ransom thereafter shots Cobra. On Cobra’s release from jail, he swears to have his revenge on chief Ashonowo.
This is the action that would surely be missed by ones choice as it is so convincingly an interesting piece, more especially that it is passing through the seasoned hands of Andy Boyo who has vast experience of telling an African story.
