When you hear of Herbert Macaulay, what do you think about? What do you know about him?
Imoh Umoren, a Nigerian Filmmaker is set to add to whatever that thought might be but in a good way. The filmmaker just released a movie trailer about the iconic figure, late Herbert Macaulay, a man whose face has graved our one Naira coin since the beginning.
Olayinka Herbert Samuel Heelas Badmus Macaulay was a Nigerian politician, journalist, and civil engineer who was considered the founder of Nigerian nationalism by many Nigerians. This new twist about a part of his life as a patriotic Nigerian is definitely welcoming and a good way to help young Nigerians understand history.
The story which was set in Lagos 1924 as depicted in the trailer seems to be filled with action, riveting plot twists, and suspense that’ll keep you at the edge of your seat. This is definitely a story our history textbooks didn’t give us.
This film features some of Nollywood’s talented acts such as Stanlee Ohikhuare, Saidi Balogun, and other unpopular but talented faces.
