Rapper M.anifest has been announced as music director for the adaptation of international Nigerian writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s “On Monday of Last Week”.
The movie, of a Nigerian woman named Kamara who babysits the spoiled middle-school-aged boy of a wealthy American couple: an endlessly busy artist mother and a father whose over-protection of their son Kamara finds ridiculous, will be directed by Ghanaian-American avant-garde filmmaker and producer Akosua Adoma Owusu.
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is among foremost contemporary writers from the continent. A 2013 adaptation of her historical novel Half of a Yellow Sun features Hollywood star Chiwetel Ejiofor , as well as Nollywood actress Genevieve Nnaji, and was released to rave reviews.
M.anifest took to social media to share his excitement with this new engagement.
His latest single, Sugar (ft. Brymo), off his #NoWhereCool album is out now.
