Today, we reached another milestone in the ongoing production of Koppo and Lady B, the documentary I’m co-producing with Louise Mbango. She wrapped a phase of interviews with Koppo, Krotal, and Lady B in Yaounde and Douala, Cameroon. And unit producer, Charles Moki, who was so important to our production of Volcanic Sprint in Buea last year, conducted interviews with Louise.
The film aims to tell an insider’s tale of how African identity is changing through the experience of a cultural journalist (Mbango) as she chronicles the lives of Cameroon’s two most famous rap artists (Koppo and Lady B). We expect production to continue for at least another year, with fundraising concurrent.
