The blues Kingdom
 The Blues Kingdom is a timely product pregnant with incisive messages to the adherents of age-old African traditional practices associated to female genital mutilation, breast-ironing and early marriages. Directed by Zack Orji and starring Clarion Chukura, Ivan Namme, Ngassa Xavier Ngunga, Queenta Eyong-Ashu Abor Magdalene among others, the movie tells the story of a Cameroonian emigrant “bushfaller” who decides to return home after a successful stay abroad. While in his native land, he falls prey to a traditional ritual he considers fetish and outmoded. His brother, a defender of tradition and custodian of the culture is helpless in a crisis that sets the village ablaze with fury. Due to the timely intervention of the forces of law and order, the situation is brought under control and perpetrators are sanctioned.

 

Launchers_to_cut_the_cake The characterisation of “The Blues Kingdom”, is good and plot well tailored to suit the interwoven themes that run through, though continuity and disjointed sets standout as bane checking the quality of the movie. It, however, makes for an interesting watch and triggers spasms of hot tears rushing down the cheeks of African movie lovers. Interestingly, Cameroon’s Parliamentary chief, The Honourable Rose Abunaw who happens to be the Aunt of the movie, played an invisible role in the movie. As she declared during the launching at the Hilton Hotel, she inspired the making of this particular movie.
