Skepta Ventures into Filmmaking with “Tribal Mark”
Joseph Olaitan Adenuga, the acclaimed rapper known as “Skepta,” is boldly stepping into the realm of filmmaking with his directorial debut, “Tribal Mark.” Departing from the overshadowed Black James Bond discourse, Skepta takes control behind the camera to produce and direct a compelling narrative.
The film unfolds the interesting story of Mark (Jude Carmichael) and Skepta himself, a young Nigerian in London entangled in the complex web of cultural change. As Mark strives to find his place and make ends meet, unforeseen circumstances draw him into the dark world of contract killing. “Tribal Mark” explores the moral dilemmas and internal conflicts faced by the protagonist as he confronts the harsh realities of his unexpected path.
Bringing a unique perspective as a Nigerian artist and cultural icon, Skepta’s directorial debut promises a fresh and thought-provoking take on the immigrant experience. “Tribal Mark” is poised to captivate audiences with its powerful storytelling, intense performances, and visually stunning cinematography.
Scheduled for a London cinema release on Jan. 26, 2024, “Tribal Mark” invites viewers to delve into the unique narrative of cultural shifts, moral challenges, and the quest for identity in the vibrant cityscape of London.
