In her first acting role since she returned from Los Angeles where she went to pursue a course in film production at the New York Film Academy, Kenyan actress, Sarah Hassan has been cast in the scintillating movie, “Shujaa”.
The film is the first project under Giraffe Africa Productions, a production company in Nairobi co-owned by the duo of Nick Mutuma and Dolapo Adeleke, also known as LowlaDee, a Nigerian filmmaker.
Following persuasion by Nick Mutuma, LowlaDee relocated from Nigeria and the two set up the production company, and after 6 months of writing, the film has come to life.
According to LowlaDee, “Shujaa” addresses a sensitive issue within a Kenyan sect and it’s her loftiest project yet:
“Shujaa boldly addresses a sensitive issue within a sect in Kenya that will require a budget we cannot afford. It’s nothing like I’ve ever done,” she posted.
Thirty year old Sarah Hassan is a Kenyan actress, model and TV host. She has made appearances in more than a dozen films and television series. She is most notable for her role in the Citizen TV comedy-drama, “Tahidi High” and “The Wedding Show”.
