“We won! BlackMail won the 2021 Africa Movie Academy Award for Best Film by an African Abroad. Thank God. Thank you, my people- cast, crew, investors and supporters. We rise…together” That was Obi Emelonye after he won the 2021 Africa Movie Academy Award.
I met obi in 2013 during the Nollywood Week Paris film festival. He is a jovial and remarkable person and our conversation about his work as a filmmaker is the podcast below. Since that time, Obi has been consistent in the Nollywood industry. He has exchanged his attire as a lawyer in the UK to the beautiful African dress he wore to receive his AMAA Award.
I hope to meet him again for more talks about his movies.
