Calabar is buzzing at the moment as EbonyLife TV is set to start shooting the movie, DERE ,in our paradise city.
Dere is an African tale that talks about: “Otunba Femi Kosoko, his wife Kemi Kosoko and their only child, Dere, are a close-knit family. When Dere’s mother dies tragically, her father’s remarriage turns Dere’s life – and their family – upside down. Her eventual meeting with Prince Charming and the exposure of her evil stepmother and stepsisters conclude a tale that is both romantic and heart-warming”.
Dere could be said to be the African version of the famous, Cinderella story .
