According to AY, the project will uncover the lives of children struggling with poverty in the north of Nigeria.
“The most honest form of filmmaking it to make a film that tells our stories and existing realities. We are currently on working on a film tilted Almajiri. It is based on true life experiences in the northern part of Nigeria,” AY shared on Instagram.
“The movie Almajiri is designed to tell a very common story of children who are subjected to the high level of poverty faced by most families living in that region.
“These children often wander the streets begging for food, clothes, and other necessities thus making them vulnerable to chronic ill-health, sexual and physical abuse, human trafficking, slavery, drugs etc. This is something unusual and different coming from the AY brand.”
This will be the first time the actor will shoot a movie in northern Nigeria.
