Star actor turned producer/director, Van Vicker has premiered his latest production, ‘Joni Waka’ at the Silverbird Cinemas in Accra. ‘Joni Waka’ is the fourth production from his Sky Orange Production and was shot in Kumasi.
The movie which won the 2012 Nollywood and African Film Critics’ Awards (NAFCA) for Best Comedy is also in the running for 5 awards including Cinematography, Best Picture, Best Actor In A Lead Role (Van Vicker), Best Music – Original Score and Best Directing Local Language at the Ghana Movie Awards scheduled for December 25.
Joni (Van Vicker) goes a village after making a discovery about the village. With some few dollar notes, an American swag and a hope to ‘invest’ in the village, he hatches up a plan to get what he wants but his unofficial guide Paa Nii (Agya Koo), “the village eye”, gets things complicated.
Meanwhile the innkeeper’s wife expresses her affection for Joni as do many of the village girls, who referred to him as the ‘American man’ or ‘dollar man’. But Joni seemed to only have his eyes on the princess of the village.
