Houston – It’s about 7 pm on a windy Wednesday night. My ringer buzzes and the dexterous voice of our Executive Editor Chibuzor comes alive; “Tosan! I am lost and so upset… I’ve driven for hours and still cannot locate the Ranch set of Don Okolo’s Gem of the Rainforest…” My thoughts brightened up with a smile (luckily he did not see my looks). That’s what Trendy Africa is all about. We have remained steadfast to the journalism advantage passion for the arts. Get the story whatever it takes. Yeah!
When I met with Producer Nkem DenChuckwu and movie director Don Okolo, it was apparent that “Gem of the Rainforest” promised to be a great blockbuster from the team that created Page 36. The action packed thriller features a star cast including Ramsey Nouah, Pere Egbi, Kae Shakir and Joe Grisaffi.
Enjoy a compilation of behind the scenes images captured by our ever dedicated Houston crew.
