Synopsis: “A powerful Army General attempts to guide Nigeria through a viciously strained era in this first of its kind authorised biopic. Born in a small village in northerrn Nigeria called Wushishi, Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida or IBB as he is fondly called, loses both of his parents by the age of 14. It is his charm and intelligence that would propel him from that inauspicious beginning to the pinnacle of military politics in Africa's most populous country. But to fulfil his destiny, Babangida has to survive a brutal civil war, spearhead several successful military coups, escape a few ferocious plots on his own life and confront his deepest fears. But when fate pitches the General against the will of 150 million tough Nigerians, something has to give. Babangida has won several battles to rule Nigeria for 8 years. However, with the country about to implode, he may have to lose the fight to bring her back from the brink.” - Obi Emelonye


Behind The Scenes

Obi Emelonye .jpg

Obi Emelonye is an award winning film director, known for directing films such as Last Flight to Abuja, The Mirror Boy and Onye Ozi. He has also become a dear friend.

His latest film “Badamasi: Portrait of a General” is a monster of a film and a hot and controversial topic in Nigeria. After Obi and I were introduced by Jeta Amata, I received the script for Badamasi and I couldn’t stop turning the pages. Every piece of dialogue and each character brought you deeper into the mindset of what this incredible story was about and what this film could ultimately become. After reading the script a second time, many hours were invested into researching deeper into the complex life of Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida. Circumstances of his birth, upbringing, and rise to power are all addressed in this film. I could immediately tell, after the initial screening of Badamasi, that Obi was creating a narrative that was poised to be neutral and honest. A biopic that simply tells the story of a complex man named Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida. I can tell you that the cast is exceptional. Enyinna Nwigwe’s portrayal as Badamasi is outstanding, along with the other cast members. I’m honored that we’ve had the opportunity to create our first film together with this amazing story. Composing the score to Badamasi was intense but worth every moment. Obi’s creativity, vision, and dedication to provide an intriguing narrative will definitely be found in “Badamasi.” You won’t want to miss this…
