“We are making frantic efforts to see that the movie premiere is a success. It’s not easy doing a big budget movie and premiere it home and abroad. We would soon announce the official date and venue when Nigerians, especially the Igbos would come and have a feel of their own,” the Thespian reassured.

Chetanna had successfully premiered in Virginia and Houston, America which makes it the first Igbo film to be premiered in the U.S.A

It has as well won two prestigious awards; Council of Igbo States in America Awards (CISA) and GIMA respectively as the best indigenous film.

Recently, ‘Chetanna’ broke new grounds with her nomination in AMAA awards in two categories.
