Lil Win’s Movie Selected for International Film Festival Again

The new movie of actor Kwadwo Nkansah, popularly known as Lil Win, has chalked another significant milestone as it has been selected for the Imo International Film Festival, a platform to promote local film both locally and internationally.

It comes days after his craft was nominated for the Nollywood Film Festival and selected for a cinema distribution deal to be screened in theatres worldwide.

In a post on Thursday, he shared the exciting news with his followers and fans.

“Weezy Empire’s film, ‘A Country Called Ghana’, has been officially selected for the IMO International Film Festival! We’re beyond thrilled to share this captivating story with both our Ghanaian and international audience, and be a part of this prestigious festival.”

He also expressed his gratitude to his crew and cast for their contribution to the project.

“Thank you to our dedicated cast, crew, and team who worked tirelessly to bring this project to life. Stay tuned for more updates and screening schedules!”

The movie,  ‘A Country Called Ghana’, was directed by Frank Fiifi Ghabin with Nkansah as the executive director and features stars like Ramsey Nouah, Charles Awurum, and Victor Osuagwu, popularly known as ‘Awilo Sharp Sharp,’ Paa George, Sweet Mimi, and others.

This is refreshing news for Lil Win, who recently found himself in deep trouble after his unregistered branded car, with which he was undertaking a regional tour promoting the premiere of the movie, killed a three-year-old boy.

The Kumawood star was arraigned at the Asokore Mampong District Court on June 3, 2024, and charged with dangerous driving, negligently causing harm and the use of an unregistered branded car.

He postponed subsequent movie premieres in other regions in memory of the three-year-old, but announced yesterday that they will resume at the end of this month.

The Imo International Film Festival (ImoIFF) is a platform for films and filmmakers around the world to inspire the love for film, cinema, and the arts; and support independent filmmakers.

The festival is created to promote the local film industry both locally and internationally and to bring all the industry stakeholders together in a more focused and structured environment.
