The historic agreement was the first of its kind in the audio-visual sector to be signed between SBF and the Nigerian actor and was expected to see Malawian film actors getting the exposure they lack to penetrate the global stage.

Prophet Bushiri said with the agreement, Malawian and Nigerian actors are expected to create a conducive environment to enable their actors and filmmakers to deploy their expertise and experiences in film production, acting, distribution and archiving.

“I have always believed in our local movie industry. We have great and talented actors and actress that only lack exposure. I believe, we can help to fix this gap. We have to work together as Malawians to push our talents to greater heights,” said Prophet Bushiri.

The deal will see the two teams working together to come up with their first production from April 2024 and all interested actors and actresses from Malawi will be shortly advised on how to make applications.

Prophet Shepherd Bushiri through his foundation and Major one records has been striving to put Malawian artistes on the map through the entertainment sector.
