One of the forerunners of rap music in Nigeria, Terry Tha Rapman has announced he is about to shoot a movie based on his rap career.
On social media, he shared a poster for his movie project called ”Boyz Are Not Smiling”. This is not his first movie appearance as he featured in movies like ”Caught in the middle” and ”Alan Poza”.
The movie title is based on a slogan popularised by Terry Tha Rapman. The ”Boyz Are Not Smiling” movie will be produced in conjunction with Nollywood director, Imoh Umoren .
Speaking on his brainchild, Terry Tha Rapman said:
“This movie idea has been with me for a while. This is however the right time to work on it.
“The Boyz Are Not Smiling will be about my origins as a rapper from Jos and my journey into the entertainment business in Lagos.
“You can call it my biopic, sort of like 8 Mile.”
