For three years, Lotanna (meaning “remember your father”) has been on the lips of movie lovers. The wait is over as the grand premiere and nationwide release is at hand. The film was produced by Ifan Ifeanyi Michael and written by Godson Ukaogbu.
According to Godson, “Lotanna was my classmate in secondary school… When the time came to write my first feature length movie, I turned to this name and story. At some point I couldn’t continue correcting the story as requested by the producers of the movie… Another writer continued to the final draft.”
The blockbuster was directed by George Sunom Kura (Tinsel – TV Series) and has been described as one of the most anticipated films this year. The theme song was performed by Naeto C and Praiz. It’s titled ‘Remember‘ and was produced by TY Mix.
