The next time you see popular actress Jackie Appiah on television or about town in her customized Nissan Murano car, watch her with a piteous heart. Jackie who has just been crowned the "Best Actress in Africa" has been sexually assaulted by the president’s son.
The gentleman who is the only son of the president "raped" Jackie ruthlessly, in a night club. His father is using his influence to sweep such a sensitive issue under the carpet like it never happened and thus deny her justice. But she has vowed to seek for justice until her last breath.
Jackie Appiah played this role very well with actor Prince Dave Osei (Ferdinand) who played the president’s son in a new movie titled “The Supremo”. The yet to be released movie, produced by Peace Films is action packed, mixed with love and politics.
It tells the story of a fresh graduate, Cindy (Jackie Appiah), who was caught in a love tangle between ‘Charles Asante’ (John Dumelo) the love of her life and ‘Ferdinand’ (Prince David Osei) who wants her at all cost simply because he is the son of the President (played by popular sound engineer Zapp Mallet).
In an attempt to win the heart of Jackie, who was deeply in love with John Dumelo, Prince Dave did everything possible with his money and influence including killing, but all failed. He decided to take what he wanted by fair or foul means, so he ended up raping Jackie in a night club assisted by his bodyguards who hijacked the club and sent everybody out.
This resulted in a national legal battle between the presidency and Jackie. Any lawyer who comes to defend Jackie is murdered, but now the last legal brain standing, Lawyer Stella (Roselyn Ngiza) is ready to die to defend Jackie in court.
What happened to lover boy, John Dumelo? Can the lawyer help him imprison the President’s son? How and where will “The Supremo” end up?
The movie is a mouthful of suspense, intrigue and romance. It has audible and straight forward dialogue. “The Supremo” also stars Kalsum Sinare, Juliet Ibrahim, George Williams, Emmanuel Armah, Jane Buckman Owoo, Eunice Banini, Soraya, Gifty Temang and introducing ‘Too Sweet’.
It is the first English movie produced by the Akan film production house, ‘Peace Films’, producers of Agya Koo 419, Galamsey, Ghana Girls, Abodam and other great movies.
