The first trailer for Izu Ojukwu's new film "Amina" has been released.

An epic film with an impressive ensemble cast, the exciting trailer briefly showcases the most suspenseful battle scene ever seen in a Nollywood movie.

"Amina" is loosely drawn from the journey of the legendary fierce Warrior, Queen Amina, who ruled for 34 years. The Queen of Zazzau (now Zaria) lived and conquered in the age of man in a man’s world.


About the movie

1st daughter to the legendary warrior and empire builder, Barkwa Turunku, Amina nurses a burning ambition: to sit as queen over a Zazzau empire that stretches from Kano to River Niger, from Idah to Jukunland.

In an age of female subjugation and an oppressive male sponsored traditional system, no sane woman would dare conceive such dreams.

From warrior to supreme military commander; from sorrowful lover to crafty politician; Amina must suppress natural feminine emotions in order to convince the empire of her ability to make true Zazzau’s long cherished dreams of dominance over all of the sub-sahara.

A movie that captures the aesthetically appealing cultural tones of ancient Zazzau in the 16th century, "Amina" stars Lucy Ameh as Amina, Ali Nuhu as Danjuma, Clarion Chukwura as Zumbura and Yakubu Mohammed as Barde.

From the producer of "Living in Bondage," Okey Ogunjiofor, "Amina" is directed by Izu Ojuwku, who helmed the critically acclaimed and award winning movie, "76."
