With budgets of no more than $200, Nbwana has created viral movies that have put Wakaliwood on the map. Actors from all over the world come to work on Nbwana’s films, which are all inspired by his home in Wakaliga, a slum in Kampala. With more than 40 films to his credit, Wakaliwood has taken Uganda by storm. One look at the finished product and you’ll understand just how special these films are.
