IN PICTURES: Movie On Apostle Suleman’s Life, ‘Black Elijah’, Launched Today


Black Elijah is a chronological story detailing the life of Apostle Suleman the senior pastor, Omega Fire Ministries worldwide, right from being a toddler to an adult.

Did you know when his mother was pregnant with him and went to the hospital to birth him,that he refused to come out? Yes the baby didn’t want to be born in a hospital but this wasnt known until it was revealed to a man of God.
The movie also features his early ministry days, and how he met the love of his life Dr. lizzy Johnson Suleman. A lot is revealed about this man who has become an epitome of hope, peace and solidarity not only in his home country Nigeria, but the world in General.

The Black Elijah parades stars likes Emma Black, Esther Audu, TT Temple, Jide Kosoko, and many others.The movie was written and exclusively produced by two brothers from the United States of America, Directed by Saint Micah, and produced by Emma Black. Before the brothers where given exclusive right to screenplay this story, a lot of producers and filmmakers had written proposals to make this film but the brothers got lucky.

The movie was shot in March 2017 in Etsako West and Central in Edo State Nigeria featuring the early days of the Apostle, and then Lagos where he started Ministry and Back to Auchi again.

After a successful sold out premiere at Kada Cinema Benin, December 27th 2017, the producers in response to fans demand, have decided to have another premiere in Warri 4th of Feb. 2018 and later on in Abuja Nigeria and lastly in Cameroon for a French version as demands keep coming from Francophone Nations.

The movie already has a reserved space at which will be available to the public once they are done with the premiere.

Many think this is a new dawn not only in Nigeria but in film making in general as the story of Men of God are gradually being told and taken to the big screen. You can recall that recently “Idahosa trails”, a movie about the late Arch Bishop Benson Idahosa of Blessed memory was also on the big screen. This is a success story many Christians believe should be improved on.
