‘Amanyanabo, the Eagle King’ is an untold story from Okrika land in Rivers state produced by Queen Bae Studios Production.

Set in 1892 the movie highlights the rich culture of the people and the organized system in place at the time consisting of its customs, administration, economy, defense and foreign relations.

This story which has been retold through oral and written history will be captured on motion pictures for the very first time.

Speaking on the project the Executive Producer, Ibinabo Fiberesima, said she was moved to create the film after reading about King Ibanichuka and was surprised that this important history was not widely known.

Will-Braide aka Barboy), Soibifaa Dokubo (Nabuoso Okujagu) and Sonny McDon W (Omekwe Horsfal).
