Fugitive United States Of Africa Nollywood Movie: Rwanda Actress Denise Gakire Gets Movie Role From Nigerian Filmmaker Andy Boyo
Denise Gakire is starring in a movie, ‘Fugitive United States of Africa’, alongside one of the most prominent Nollywood actors Daniel K Daniel.
Daniel is best known as Bossman, in a Nigerian war thriller “A Soldier’s Story.”
The film, which was shot in Nigeria, started production in April 4.
It was written and directed by Nollywood veteran Andy Boyo. The cast also includes two actresses from Uganda and Zambia, along several other Nollywood actors.
Speaking to The New Times, Gakire said the much anticipated movie will be premiered in Nigeria in September before it’s screened in Kigali the same month.
“This was a great opportunity for me because it’s going to improve my acting skills. I am so glad that I was able to represent our own film industry in the biggest film industry in Africa.”
She noted: “I’m expecting bigger opportunities going forward”.
Gakire, who shared few pictures of herself on set on her instagram, is the first Rwandan actress to feature in a Nollywood movie. She is popular in several local films such as ‘Inkomoko y’ishyano,’ ‘Sakabaka’ and local TV drama series ‘City Maid.’
Gakire began her acting career in 2012. In 2016, she won the ‘best actress’ award at the Rwanda Movie Awards, which she says opened new doors for her.
“For two years, I had wished to take my acting career to another level. I had acted in several local films and had previously tried out my luck with the Tanzanian film industry but Nigeria was a big break for me,” said Gakire.
“Winning the best actress award opened doors for me because our CVs and experience mattered when they were selecting actors,” she added.

Her admission of making it big by landing a role in Nollywood is part of indication that many African countries look up to Nigeria, and no doubt that successful Nigeria will be a better Africa, only IF, colonial masters and their puppets will allow such to happen.

Thank you very much @Mon. Britain, our colonial masters are the ones keeping Nigeria down through their proxies. Have you ever wondered why any government that comes into power do rush to Britain? Obasanjo did it. I remember seeing him in person for the first time at Heathrow airport in London on my way to Nigeria on vacation. Because of him our plane was delayed for about an hour. When he finally showed up, trust Naija people he got an ear full of it. Another person that is constantly in London is the current leader, Buhari. They receive wrong advise from Britain because they (Britain) know very well that if left alone Nigeria will do wonders. This they don’t want. They don’t want a Black nation to rise. My opinion.
