I couldn’t pass it over – Black Panther, the raging hot movie of the moment! Black Panther is the highest box office hit in 2018, grossing over $1billion in box office sales by this weekend. You can imagine why we can’t ignore this phenomenon.
Black Panther is a 2018 American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name. Produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, it is the eighteenth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The film is directed by Ryan Coogler, who co-wrote the screenplay with Joe Robert Cole, and stars Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa / Black Panther, alongside Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis.
In Black Panther, T’Challa returns home as King of Wakanda but finds his sovereignty challenged by a new adversary, in a conflict with global consequences.
Ludwig Göransson was hired to compose the film’s score by April 2017. Göransson traveled to Senegal and South Africa to record local musicians to form the “base” of his soundtrack.

As you know Rebeca Omordia has been in town since the week of March 4, 2018. On March 4, 2018, she performed at a solo recital at MUSON Centre to the works of Ludwig van Beethoven, Ayo Bankole, Fred Onovwerosuoke, Maurice Ravel, and Franz Lizst. Last week she gifted me with a CD, entitled Ekele. It features compositions by Ayo Bankole, Fred Onovwerosuoke, and Christian Onyeji.
