Afrobeat singer Brymo has made his acting on the set of Death and The King’s Horseman, the movie adaptation of Wole Soyinka’s book.
The 35-year-old recently shared photos of himself filming with actor Deyemi Okanlowon on Twitter.
Speaking on his role, Brymo said, “Being on the set of “The King’s Horseman” had me diving so deep in time that at the end of the shoot I was in a mild panic; “what will I do with my life now?”.. I can’t wait for you to meet my character – OLOHUN IYỌ. (The Praise Singer).
Filmmaker Mo Abudu had earlier announced the commencement of the screen adaptation.
“We started with Castle & Castle Season 2, we then went on to Chief Daddy 2, then the recently announced Blood Sisters and yesterday we started Principal Photography on something very dear and very special – Death and the King’s Horseman.
“I will be forever grateful to Professor Wole Soyinka for giving me the rights to this most important and treasured piece of literature. I cannot wait for the world to see this feature film,” she said in parts.
The play was set in the 1940s, on a real incident that took place in Nigeria during the colonial era. The horseman of a Yoruba king was prevented from committing ritual suicide by the colonial authorities.
