Kannywood goes Britannic as Jammaje releases another English blockbuster

Kannywood has official gone English!

The multi lingual cinema of Northern Nigeria that has erstwhile been dominated by non English, mostly Hausa, Kanuri and Nupe movies is witnessing a transformation.

Kabiru Jammaje’s release would be the 3 third English movie released in 2016 alone! The difference however is that Jammaje’s production is the first English movie to near the N1 Million budget since Wasila the English Version.

So why is Kannywood going through this transformation?

Industry experts have for years been trying to breach through a segment of high earning Northern Nigerian missle class that has so far remained distant to industry’s overtures. Many experts have hinted that this trend to towards a more hollywood oriented cinema might just do the trick
