The film will also be opened to the general public on 23 December at cinemas across Nigeria.
It is an epic movie with a village setting. It stars amazing and talented actors from Nigeria and Ghana. It takes a different angle from the usual romantic movies on parade lately.
In the movie, there is a blend of music and drama; and a comic twist by Bishop Umoh popularly known as Okon in Lagos.
Emem, who is known as a trail blazer in the industry, is bringing the old Nollywood classic back but without any form of shoddiness and produced with high quality associated with present state of technology.
Set in Akwa-Ibom, Ayamma under the production of Royal Arts Academy, tells the story of Prince Daraima (Wole Ojo), the fascinating heir to Obong Ikpaisong, repeatedly dream of Ihuoma (Adesua Etomi), poor but radiating maiden whose beauty is matched only by her voice.
In Daraima’s dreams, flowers blossom and birds gather when Ihuoma sings. He is in love with the girl of his dreams. In the real world, Prince Daraima is set to marry Princess Ama (Tinsel star, Theresa Edem), the arrogant child to a neighbouring Monarch.
