Tarch House Premieres Dagbana
Tarch House Production, one of Ghana’s music production houses which focuses on encouraging peace in the Northern part of Ghana via promoting Northern musicians, has made a diversion into movie production to continue preaching its message of peace.
Last Friday, the production house hit the premiering scene with its first movie titled, ‘Dagbana.’ This featured a number of new faces including popular face Eddie Nartey.
It was directed by Nigerian/Ghanaian Pascal Amanfo and produced by Tarch House. The movie was aimed at encouraging indigenes of the Northern Region to see themselves as one people and put an end to the fight in the region.
‘Dagbana’ tells the tale of two lovebirds, played by Eddie Nartey and Lamisi Sam Awinongya of TV3’s Ghana Most Beautiful fame, who met outside their native land.
They returned home to get married only to discover that their families are not on good terms. Eddie and Lamisi’s decision to marry only opened old wounds. But the two lovebirds would not bow to their families’ pressure as they swear to themselves to unite their people and give peace a chance. Friday’s premiere did not gather many movie fans as anticipated, due to a downpour that evening.
However, it attracted quite a number of important personalities including Said Sinare of the ruling National Democratic Congress party, musician Sheriff Ghale, Eyram of Ghana Most Beautiful fame and top Nollywood actor Emma Ayalogu. The night was not only about movies as Kofi Nti, D’flex and a number of wannabe musicians took turns on stage to wow fans.
Speaking at the event, Hafiz Mohammed Abdallah, CEO of Tarch House, was optimistic the movie will not be the last from their stables. He said Ghana should watch out for such productions from his outfit and prayed that it will contribute to curbing the fight in the North.
