Set in the lush, green fertile land of Akwa Ibom state, Ayamma is a sweeping epic that transports us into a magical world.
Ayamma is a never-seen-before musical, reminiscent of a Disney movie but laced with the distinct, authentic African flavour.
Set in a fictitious village somewhere in Ibibio land in beautiful Akwa Ibom state, ‘Ayamma’ is the story of Ihuoma, (played Adesua Etomi) the poor but beautiful village maiden with the voice of an angel. Her voice coming out of the forest, so haunts Prince Daraima, (Wale Ojo) the handsome heir to the throne that he does all he can to reach her so as to claim her hand in marriage.
His efforts are however, constantly thwarted by the envious Princess Ama (Theresa Edem) a princess from a neighbouring village, betrothed to Prince Daraima and who will stop at nothing to secure her rightful place as his bride. All this is played out under the watchful gaze of his younger brother Ekong (Majid Michel) who harbours his own dark secret.
