    producer, Chigozie Atuanya shed more lights on the major reason they are taking
    the movie down to the East for its first Premiere.
    ‘’ Well, as you know Chetanna is a contemporary Igbo
    movie, so we decided to bring it down to our people in Awka, Anambra State, so
    they can be the first to watch the full film. Besides, it is like making
    history, nothing of such has ever happened in that State, so we want to cease
    the opportunity to bring more fun and excitement to our people at home. I’m a
    true son of the soil and always have my people at heart.
    At the moment all hands are on deck to see that the movie
    premiere is a grand success. It’s not easy doing a big budget movie and as well
    premiering it home and abroad. Other movie lovers in different states close-to
    Anambra should come and have a feel of their own,” the Thespian told
    Goldenpealrmedia.
    The proud father of one also revealed plans to premiere
    the movie in other parts of the country in 2016.
    ‘’ Lagos, Abuja, Port-Harcourt, Aba and other major
    cities in Nigeria should get ready for us because Chetanna crew would be coming
    their way quite soon,’ he added.
    Chetanna had successfully premiered in Virginia and
    Houston, America which makes it the first Igbo film to be premiered in US.
    It has as well won two prestigious awards; Council of
    Igbo States in America Awards (CISA) and GIMA respectively as the best
    indigenous film.
    Some actresses in the movie, Queen Nwokoye and Ebere
    Okaro, won the Best female actress and best supporting female actress
    respectively at ZAFFA.
    Adding to that Chetanna broke new grounds with her
    nomination in AMAA awards in two categories, the panel of Jurists are
