15th Century Africa comes alive in this African epic movie, “SANGO, THE LEGENDARY AFRIKAN KING (pronounced Shango).” A re-enactment of the life and times of a famous Yoruba King who ruled the old Oyo Empire, long before the arrival of the European slave traders to West Africa. African civilization pre-dating colonialism is highlighted in this 114 minutes feature film, depicting the life of the legendary Sango before he became king, his ascension to the throne, coronation, reign, love with the equally legendary Oya and of course the historic face-off between Sango and his famous war generals. The film attempts to provide an answer to how Sango became an Orisha (deity or god), still honoured by people in the South Western part of Nigeria, as well as in Brazil, Caribbean, U.S.A. and the African diaspora. —africine.org
