Like Tiwa Savage, Grammys winner, Burna Boy, is diversifying into film.

While Tiwa is out with ‘Water and Garri’, Burna Boy is about to step out as an executive producer in Black Mic Mac’s upcoming movie ‘3 Cold Dishes.’

It will be directed by Oluseyi Asurf, famous for the directorial finesse that defines every work he touches. Apart from having done many films, Asurf is the one who shot ELELETURE, Akeem Lasisi’s acclaimed poetry video that features actress Bukola Arugba, Edaoto and the Crown Troupe of Africa.

He would produce the movie through Spaceship Films, a company he co-founded alongside Bose Ogulu, his mother.

Directed by Asurf Oluseyi and written by Tomi Adesina, ‘3 Cold Dishes’ is a story set across Nigeria, the Republic of Benin, and Côte d’Ivoire.

“This film is a testament to the strength and resilience of its characters, and it took us blood and sweat to get it to this stage,”  Asurf  stated in an interview with ‘Variety’.

The film boasts star-studded cast such as Osas Ighodaro, Femi Jacobs, Wale Ojo, Ruby Akubueze, Brutus Richards as well as some Ivorian and Senegalese actors.
