Queen Nzinga Drama in the Works at Starz (Co-Produced by 50 Cent)

Aug 6, 2012
Yetide Badaki will star in 'Queen Nzinga' and executive produce with Mo Abudu and Curtis '50 Cent' Jackson.

Starz and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson are continuing their partnership with a drama project about a 17th century African warrior queen.

The premium cable outlet and Lionsagte TV are developing Queen Nzinga, which tells the story of an innocent princess in 17th century Angola who transforms into a fearless warrior queen and wages a ferocious 40-year guerrilla war against the kingdom’s formidable enemies and the cruel subjugation of her people by Portuguese slavers. Nzinga would come to sacrifice everything to defend her people’s dignity, liberty and freedom. On seizing the crown, Nzinga, the first-ever female ruler, decreed “Call me king.”
