With stars like Sola Sobowale, Ireti Doyle, Sam Dede, and Nancy Bassey, 1929 is expected to hit the cinemas come April 19th.
Produced by Ndy Akan, the film parades other stars like Lois Ikpaha, Uduak Odungide, KedianaAbasi Kam, Emman Etukudo, Enobong Ekwere, and others.
The movie was out to portray the courage and role of the women of Ibibio and Annang to put an end to women taxation introduced by the colonialists in 1929
“The general impression people have is that the 1929 women’s riot took place only at Aba; no, women from different provinces in the then eastern region of Nigeria played a major part to stop the imposition of tax on women. The film will serve as a point of reference for research, especially for young people. On a lighter note, the film is spiced up with a love story to delight the viewers, it is a historical film that will make you think, feel, laugh and learn and I will be happy to see people come out to watch history being made.” Ndy Akan said
