Beyoncé’s ‘Black is King’ Film Now To Screen in Africa

She’s coming.



Beyoncé has shared the official trailer for her looming ‘Black is King’ visual album. The film is based on the music that appears on The Lion King: The Gift, a project she famously produced and curated in 2019.

Although glimpses of the highly buzzed piece were met with mixed reviews as some slammed the American singer for appropriating African culture without displaying a real understanding of our lived experience, the project is slated to premiere on July 31st.

And the South African beyhive has been thrilled to find out that the film will now be available for linear viewing locally. M-Net on Sunday shared the news that the project will be airing on its channel when it debuts internationally at the end of the month.

South African actor Warren Masemola to appear in the film.

The announcement will likely be enough to quell grievances that a visual narrative that centres on reimagining Africa had initially not been scheduled on any platform available to African audiences.

Now the channel has said it would share screening details for its customers, as the film will now be available to a number of African countries including Nigeria, Ghana, Ethiopia and amongst others, Namibia.

The new trailers feature guest appearances from the likes of Adut Akech and supermodel Naomi Campbell, Tina Knowles-Lawson, as well as Lupita Nyong’o.
