Nigerian Filmmaker Lexx Ore Releases Official Trailer of Africa’s 1st Afrobeat Dance Movie #TDMP

October 2014, I introduced Alexander “Lexx” Ore, a comedian, author, publisher and media personality of Nigerian heritage, to you the AML audience in an exclusive  interview on The Africa Music Law Show. Lexx was preparing to take on a new project and push his personal and professional boundaries with the production of his first movie, The Dance Movie Project, #TDMP – Africa’s 1st AFROBEAT dance film.

Fast forward to today, December 6th, 2015, the budding filmmaker releases the official trailer for his new movie. I am excited to see the movie when it is released and I like the raw authenticity the trailer seems to portray. Indeed, if you know anything about me, then you know I love dance and think Africa is yet to fully realize on this beautiful art form.

“The Dance Movie Project (#TDMP) is inspired by real-life events. The plot follows a dancing duo of brothers, Femi and Wale, known as some of the best underground competition dancers in Lagos, Nigeria, who despite the disapproval of their single mother, continue to chase their passion for dance.

The lives of the brothers take an unexpected down-turn when their ailing mother is diagnosed with diabetes. This compounds the family’s already precarious financial position as they wrestle with the increased costs of their mother’s hospitalization. Events reach a critical point, when it is discovered that their mother is fast deteriorating and the only remedy that can save her life is an expensive kidney transplant.

As the brothers scramble to find options to save the life of their mother, the largest national dance competition in Nigeria’s history is announced with a lucrative prize pool.

The brothers with their dance crew (Legendary 5 dance crew) now embark on a journey to enter, compete and attempt to win the national dance championship as they face innumerable obstacles and challenges.”
