Lexxistalking Entertainment inks a two year deal for TDMP motion picture on DSTV

Africa’s biggest Digital Satellite TV (DStv) provider, to televise Africa’s First Afrobeats dance movie, “The Dance Movie Project” (TDMP), which will premiere on DSTV’s Africa Magic Showcase, starting Saturday, February 17 at 20:00/8:00PM CAT.

Social entrepreneur and filmmaker Alexander Ore 

TDMP, based on real-life events by social entrepreneur and filmmaker Alexander Ore, is a comedy-drama about two brothers’ love for dance and their fight to save the life of their single mother suffering from diabetes. It is also a movie about love, hard work, nurturing the talents of youths and the proverbial need to tell the story of creative talents that abound in more ways than one, in Africa. TDMP has received global acclaim for its rich dance performances orchestrated by Former Britain’s Got Talent stars Ezinne Asinugo and Soliat of CEO dancers, Celebrity Choreographer Donflexx, Afropop Star Joelschild, Obi Michael Odo, Eniola Agboluaje and Westsyde Lifestyle. Other stars in the movie include Lizzy Anjorin, Chris Okagbue, Banky W., Toolz, Denrele, and DJ Obi.

The formula for the making of TDMP was to bring together dance and Afrobeats music in a way that will show the world why Afrobeats music and dance is on the rise. Through TDMP, Lexxistalking communicates, educates and cultivates a culture of Afrobeats dance. With TDMP as Africa’s first Afrobeat dance movie, the dialogue has ensued on a much larger scale around the (market) opportunity for an industry geared towards dance. The movie has received a variety of highly notable screening engagements across theatres in United States, Nigeria, and the Caribbean. Since its global launch in 2017, the movie has also garnered considerable earned media from publications around the world, because TDMP boasts an industry-first celebration of African culture and Afrobeats Dance.

The Dance Music Project (TDMP) Film Creator, Alexander “Lexx” Ore, said this, “a partnership with DSTV/ Africa Magic Showcase provides an incredible opportunity for the movie to be viewed by 8 million subscribers in over 50 countries across the continent of Africa. Additionally, the timing of this partnership could not have more appropriate for we are currently in the development stages of the film’s sequel.”

With a remarkable affirmation from viewers and the world’s attention, you can expect more progressive storylines and contemporary African motion pictures from Lexxistalking Entertainment Film Studio.

“I just want to create art that will inspire people,” said Alexander “Lexx” Ore. 

The Dance Movie Project (TDMP) follows two brothers who despite the disapproval of their single mother, continue to chase their passion for dance in Lagos, Nigeria.

As the brothers scramble to find options to save her life, the largest national dance competition in Nigeria’s history is announced with a lucrative prize pool. The brothers alongside their dance crew decide to embark on a journey to compete in the national dance championship. Will dancing offer a way out for the brothers to save the life of their mother or will it ultimately destroy their family? Visit https://www.facebook.com/Tdmpthemovie/ to learn more.
