Queen Sono, Africa’s first ever Netflix original was premiered at Johannesburg Theatre in Joburg CBD and it was a night filled with some of the biggest stars in the land. From the red carpet, the proceedings to the after party, this premiere was world class and celebrated everything African.
Queen Sono is the first African spy crime drama. Actress Pearl Thusi plays the lead Queen Sono and she nails the role. The show was created by Kagiso Lediga. Lediga and Tebogo Molape directed Queen Sono.
The series stars Pearl Thusi, Vuyo Dabula, Sechaba Morojele, Chi Mhende, Loyiso Madinga, Rob Van Vuuren, Kate Liquorish, Khathu Ramabulana, Enhle Maphumulo, Abigail Kubeka, Connie Chiume, Otto Nobela and James Ngcobo.
‘I want to be part of creating a legacy where Africa negotiates as equals on a table with Steven Spielberg, Bong Jooh-ho and no one feels like they are doing someone else a favor. This is usually the position we are in as Africans. If I can live to see that day, I will die a very happy woman,’ Thusi said about this groundbreaking African first.
Queen Sono premiere at 10am today Friday the 28th of February on Netflix.
