The first teaser trailer of Ramsey Nouah's directed biopic 'Shina Rambo' has just been unveiled.
The Nigerian actor and filmmaker revealed on Instagram that it is a project pertaining to the life of the infamous thief.
Nouah mentioned that no one would talk about the narratives of Nigeria, hence, the creatives from the country are responsible for “telling their own stories”.
He then unveiled a first-look teaser for the Play Network Studios and Ramsey Films’ biopic of 90s robbery kingpin.
The new teaser features Rambo, now an evangelist, detailing making a pact with the devil and one of his deadliest robberies on the third mainland bridge.
“I am Pastor Oluwanifise Matthew Akoko formerly known as Shina Rambo. I made a covenant with the devil,” the pastor shared in the teaser.
Shina Rambo is a former bandit and armed robbery kingpin who terrorised Southwest Nigeria in the 1990s.
He was born in Abeokuta, Ogun State. He was a fetish and believed in rituals and human sacrifices.
Play Network boss, Charles Okpaleke first announced the biopic in 2021 via an Instagram post confirming the acquisition of the intellectual property rights following a long conversation with the former bandit.
“I sat down for 3 hours and listened to a former bandit and armed robbery kingpin who terrorised Southwest Nigeria in the 90s.
"Though he’s now a pastor preaching the gospel, his story was intriguing. I decided to acquire the Intellectual property rights to his story and make it an action-packed feature film.
"His name is Shina Rambo,” Okpaleke wrote.
