Amateurs Produce Malawi’s First Hit Movie …Inspired by Nollywood


Information reaching our Entertainment desk has it that the trio of Shemu Joyah, Flora Suya and Tampiwa Gwaza have produced the first hit movie to come out of Malawi. The interesting thing about the movie is that the cast and crew were all amateurs. The actors never acted before, the director and producer were doing every thing for the first time in their lives.

The movie, which is entirely Malawi oriented is the first major movie to come out of Malawi which has no movie history. The producers of the movie attributed their success to hard work, determination and persistence coupled with intense studying of Nollywood movies.

This is good news for practitioners in Nollywood as their movies are not only watched globally, but are now studied by other countries.
