A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE IGBO LANDING
Although details of the movie are yet to be revealed, ‘Igbo Landing‘ is a historic site at Dunbar Creek on St. Simons Island, Glynn County, Georgia.
According to Searchable Museum, “in 1803, approximately 75 western Africans, many from the Igbo people in modern-day Nigeria, were forced across the Atlantic on the slave ship Wanderer. They arrived in Savannah, Georgia, where they were purchased by slave traders for work on plantations on the nearby St. Simons Island, one of the Sea Islands off the coast of Georgia. The enslaved captives were then re-embarked on the Schooner York.
“However, they would not labor on St. Simons. The captured Igbo rose up in mutiny against the crew. They drowned their captors, commandeered the ship, and docked at what is now Dunbar Creek.”
Nouah is considered one of the most sought-after actors in Nigeria. He has won several categories of awards ranging from acting to producing.
In 2020, he co-produced ‘Rattlesnake: The Ahanna Story’ with Okpaleke.
The movie won five trophies at the 2022 edition of the African Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCA).
