A Multichoice-owned TV channel, Africa Magic has disclosed its interest in making a film on the life of the first lady of Nigeria, Aisha Buhari.
This move was revealed by Busola Tejumola, MultiChoice Nigeria’s executive head of content and West Africa Channels, during a two-day Africa Magic content marketplace in Kano.
Tejumola indicated that this initiative will give northern Nigeria the opportunity to tell its stories.
He said:“Africa Magic, the MultiChoice-owned movie and general entertainment channel group dedicated to telling African stories, is considering making a biopic of Mrs. Aisha Buhari, the wife of President Muhammadu Buhari.”
“Africa Magic is committed to supporting producers to tell authentic stories by providing the platform and training support.”
Aisha Buhari will not be the first political figure to get a biopic. It was earlier made public that Kogi state governor, Yahaya Bello’s biopic will debut in December.
The release date for the movie is yet to be publicised.
