Ninahs Dowry

It is unarguably true that Victor Viyuoh’s Ninah’s Dowry has become the most prominent Cameroonian ambassador in film diplomacy. For quite some time now, the movie which was shot in 2010 and released in 2012 has been featuring and attracting enormous attention at film festivals. Fans of Cameroonian movies had not finished digesting the recent glory the movie amassed at the just-ended Pan African Film and Television Festival, FESPACO in Burkina Faso when news broke – that the Victor Viyuoh film was nominated at the African Movie Academy Awards, AMMA in Nigeria.

Were it not for Ninah’s Dowry, Cameroon would have been absent from this year’s AMMA. Ninah’s Dowry nomination was announced at the AMMA nomination party held in Malawi last week. According to the AMMA representative for Francophone Africa, Cameroonian-born Damasius Nyatum, Ninah’s Dowry secured seven (7) nominations in different categories. This means there is a probability, intact, that the Cameroonian movie may lift seven awards. TIPTOPSTARS in a subsequent update will be finding out how the Los Angeles-based writer and director of Ninah’s Dowry feels following the nomination of his movie at AMMA.

Before being selected for AMMA, Ninah’s Dowry had featured in other festival including the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival in Florida, USA.

Shot in Sagba, North West region of Cameroon, Ninah’s Dowry is directed by Victor Viyuoh featuring Mbufung Seikeh, Anurin Nwunembom, Vugar Samson, Nkwah Kingsley, Nsuh George (Big George), Christa Eka, Nobert Kecha, Bodi Rolland Tamfu, Ndenge Dian Thelma Cheny, Ekwa, Sally Talla, Photem Michael, Che Fuh Hilarius, Adambi Mbango Ngene, etc.

The 9th edition of AMMA takes place on the night of April 20, 2013 in Yenagoa, capital of the oil-rich Bayelsa State in Nigeria.
