There is so much buzz going on online about the feature film “Amina” which is scheduled to premiere globally on Netflix from November 4, 2021. While many people are raving about the trailer and other snippets of this movie on the life and times of Queen Amina of Zazzau, very few know that the picture survived a major scare, involving its lead actor Lucy Ameh, during its production while on set in a remote village in Plateau State.

In this exclusive interview with BellaNaija, Lucy who stars as Queen Amina of Zazzau in the Netflix feature film “Amina”, told us how she was flung off her horse one time on set and fell head first into the ground. As she crashed to the ground, she was not sure she would survive.

“I felt like this is it. This character has claimed your life, this is the end of it for you,” she said.

The production came to a halt for 3 weeks while she was in recovery. “The first day I went back on the horse, I was traumatised. But at some point, I just got over it and I got into it and that Amina came back again.”

Watch the interview below:

For Lucy, it was an honour to play such a powerful female character and she sees herself in this role as the bridge between the Amina Queen of Zazzau and the new generation of women trying to succeed in a male dominated world.

While preparing for this role as Amina, Lucy didn’t realize how much she would be influenced by the real Amina. After a few weeks of rehearsals, she began to internalize not only the script but also the personality of Queen Amina. In one day, the frenzy and wait will be over. Nigerians will be able to stream this movie produced by Okey Ogunjiofor, one of the pioneers of the Nollywoood Film Industry and directed by Izu Ojukwu, a renowned and award-winning film director.

Most Ghanaians have a weird relationship with money but we swear it’s not our fault. You try having a normal relationship with money when your president gives you free amenities only to tax you for them later. Anyway, that’s besides the point. These are some of the weird things that Ghanaians do when it comes to money.

Telling People That You’re Broke When You’re Not

If you live in Ghana then there is no way that you don’t have this defense mechanism. Whenever someone says that they’re broke you also start telling them how broke you are and all your latest expenses. If you slack and don’t do this 10 out of 10 times the conversation ends with the person giving you their momo number for some coins.

Saving money is the most unnatural thing for the Ghanaian youth. As in, see all the enjoyment happening around and then choosing to keep your money in some empty room at a bank instead? It couldn’t be a Ghanaian youth. Whenever there is a small chance, they will transfer all their savings for enjoyment purposes. Stressed? Spend money. Heartbroken? Spend money.

Trying To Find Money In Unlikely Places

There are different stages of being broke. When you get to the stage where you find yourself looking for money in pockets of clothes that you’ve thrown into the washing basket then you know that things are critical. Some people will even go looking underneath the cushions of chairs in their house.

There is no better feeling than remembering someone owes you some 200 Ghana when you’re broke and sad (obviously sad because you’re broke). That’s why even if you don’t remember lending money to anyone you’ll go into your contacts and see if there is some unlucky soul that owes you that you can go and harass.

Trying To Trace The Money That Left Your Account Like That Will Bring It Back

Post-spending clarity (patent pending) is what happens after you’ve spent all your money and you realize that you’re broke. At that point, you start calculating every single pesewa that has left your account as if that will bring the money back. Of course, you’ll tell yourself that you’re going to make better decisions next time but we all know that when the money hits your account you’ll forget all of that.
