By - - [ ]

Bauchi state governor, Barrister Mohammed Abubakar, alongside the Emirs of Ningi and Misau were among the dignitaries who graced the premiere of ‘Up North’, a movie produced by Anakle Films and Inkblot Productions.

The movie, which was screened to an array of northern royalties, celebrities, media personalities, and other dignitaries on Thursday in Lagos, showcases the rich Northern Nigeria culture and amplifies the tourism potentials of the region.

With the plot set in Bauchi, the movie sees an overbearing billionaire father (Kanayo O. Kanayo) get fed up with his rebellious son, Bassey (Banky W), and sends him off to NYSC in the northern Nigeria city.

The movie follows Bassey’s journey to self-discovery as he navigates between life, love, friendship, and purpose in this thrilling drama.

The film also focuses on girl-child education and girl empowerment within the local northern community where the protagonist begins a new life.

Shot in Lagos and Bauchi states in 2018, the movie boasts of cameo appearances from Bauchi state governor, Barrister Mohammed Abubakar, and both Emirs of Ningi and Misau.


Directed by award-winning movie director, ‘Up North’ featured both Kannywood actors and actresses such as Rahama Sadau, Rekiya Attah, Ibrahim Suleiman, Ruth Waziri, Adzi Adamu, Nafeesa Butu, Sani Mu’azu and Saeed Mohammed.

It also featured star Nollywood casts including Adesua Etomi, Kanayo O. Kanayo, Banky Wellington, Hilda Dokubo, Tokunbor ‘T-Boss’ Idowu, Akin Lewis, and Michelle Dede , among others.

“My Family and I enjoyed our time in Lagos watching our beautiful Bauchi state in “Up North” film. We can’t wait for the film, which shows the best of our people, to be shown in Bauchi. I’m grateful to the producers and director who brought this historic film to our state,” Governor Abubakar said after watching the premiere, hosted by the British Council in Lagos.

Also commenting, the Emir of Misau, Bauchi state, HRH Alhaji Ahmed Suleiman, said: “I enjoyed the film. It has many lessons, which will help our country to be more united. I hope all leaders and everyone can see it.”

The governor and Emirs however promised to host public screenings of the movie in their emirates and in Bauchi state in general.
