The Nakala Tv Series is not only one of the finest musicals ever made, but one of the finest Series of any type ever made In Senegambia. Momodou Lamin Touray and his casts take us through an adventure. It’s an appealing, touching and spectacularly over the top interpretation of one of the most sensational stories, with the fuse of music. Making it the first Musical TV Series from Senegambia.
The impetus behind the Nakala Tv Series is a commitment to promote greater participation and acceptance of the Senegambian performing artists internationally. Nakala brings together the best and the most talented actors in the United Kingdom, from The Gambia.
The project will utilize music to reveal the hidden talents of The Gambia. It will also draw attention of other people in the entertainment business, from around the world to pay attention to the growing film industry in The Gambia.
The project is designed as a public service, and will be released on different TV channels, Internet and if possible DVD’s will be also released commercially
The project is first and foremost concerned with Senegambians living in the diaspora and their encounters. For example, immigration and migration, love and betrayal, family, friends and other issues affecting us in the diaspora and our connection back home, The Gambia. It will simply document the positive sides of young Gambians doing great.
With contributions from the biggest and brightest Gambian stars in the UK Nollywood industry, plus those from other creative avenues, I hope to construct a powerful and harrowing experience that will tell the full story of Gambians in the diaspora for the first time.

Famous Ghanaian Actress and Producer Yvonne Nelson has a new production called “If Tomorrow Never Comes“. The movie was inspired by a boy Kweku, who suffered from “Cerebral Malformation“, which basically paralyzed him. He couldn’t talk, walk, sit, or stand. This little angel died 2 weeks after the production of the movie. What confused me about this production is that kweku was cast to play himself in the movie. I’m sure special care and precautions were taken but I’m I the only that thinks that they could’ve gotten a talented child actor to play the part?
There is a reason why the boy’s biological mother did not play his mom in the movie, even though the inspiration stems from her son. Yet, Yvonne played the role…..Why? Because she is a skilled actress, and can bring the story to light. Now my question is, why couldn’t they do the same for Kweku.
I highly understand that she’s trying to raise awareness for his condition, (which by the way I respect and admire her for that), however, I believe they could have gotten a talented child actor to execute the part. Yvonne grew quite fond of kweku during the production, she took to social media to express her condolences and feelings about his death. We deeply sympathize with her and Kweku’s mother for their lost. May his soul Rest In Peace!
What are your thoughts on the situation?
