Video: Nollywood Super Hero Flick; Oya Rise of the Orisha

Introducing Oya, Rise Of the Orisha. A movie being touted as an African Super Hero movie. With the Super Hero genre enjoying massive audience appeal at the moment, it’s no surprise that Nollywood will be eager for a piece of the action but I beg you please producers of this movie – do your homework well. Don’t just drop the same lukewarm, ill-thought out plots, and please please, get your special effects rights before dropping this movie.

That said, I'm super excited. I can’t wait to see the movie. The synopsis alone is ‘ghen ghen’ enough. Lol.

See synopsis and preview after the cut.

Synopsis: For centuries the doorway between the world of the Orishas and our world has remained closed, until now. Our hero, Ade, is one of the few people with a connection to one of the gods, Oya. She has been tasked with the job of protecting the innocent and that means keeping the door to the gods shut. If the doorway to the gods is opened, they will wreak chaos upon us as retribution for our abandonment of them. To keep the door shut, she must find ‘the key’, a young girl with the potential to open the doorway, and keep her safe. What do you think?

The adventure unfolds with a host of memorable characters and a string of unexpected twists, Ade, goes in search of the key, battling against those who wish to open portal and unleashing a horde of forgotten gods and goddesses into the world, with powers and skills beyond our comprehensive and supernatural gifts which will change the course of history for mankind, forever.
