Today, I visited the set on the sixth day of shooting of the much-anticipated Da Grin biopic, Ghetto Dreamz: Story of Da Grin. Executive producer Ope Banwo of  Stingomania Entertainment recruited Daniel Ademinokan (Guilty Pleasures, Bursting Out) to direct and to write the script. Stingomania Records recording artist Trybson plays the title role.

The movie chronicles the meteoric rise and tragic death of the 23 year-old rapper. The production schedule covers 133 scenes in 14 days. Ghetto Dreamz is scheduled to be released in theaters in Nigeria, US, UK, and Canada in April 2011 to commemorate the one-year anniversary of Da Grin’s untimely death.
