EbonyLife Films is currently developing Wole Soyinka’s play ‘Death and the King’s Horseman’ into a feature film.

Mo Abudu, the head of EbonyLife, revealed this after having lunch with the Nigerian playwright in London.

“Lunch with Prof today at Scotts in London,” Abudu wrote in an Instagram post.

“It’s always lovely to see Prof. Thank you so much for always making the time out of your busy schedule to meet with me. I truly appreciate it.

“Work and planning continue with EbonyLife Films development of our forthcoming feature film – Death and the King’s Horseman.

“Yes beautiful people, EbonyLife Films has acquired the rights to make this incredible work into a feature film for global distribution.”

The play, which is set in ancient Oyo, tells the story of the horseman of a Yoruba king who was prevented from committing ritual suicide by the colonial authorities.

“We will continue to change the narrative and tell our stories,” she added.
