The film is based on the seminal musical play, Asinamali and features an original soundtrack by Ngema. His storytelling style combines elements of African culture with those of Magic Realism, the West and modernity. The film is a testimony to Ngema’s artistic genius. It is produced by the same creative partnership of Mbongeni Ngema and Darrell Roodt that brought us the locally and globally successful film, Sarafina!, which grossed over $7m internationally. This time Ngema is directing and Roodt producing, while the film features an all South African cast performing a 60% Zulu language script.
