It is directed by award-winning Nigerian filmmaker Frank Orji and is produced by the African Academy of Cinematic Art (AACA).  

The organisation is a black-owned film school that was established by the Muvhango actress, Frank Orji, and Alicia Orji six years ago.  

It offers training in filmmaking, screen and theatre acting, journalism, advertising, graphic design, interactive media, and photography.  


The actress told Sowetan that she wanted to be part of The Wrong Girl’s storyline because it shows women’s power.  

“The story is interesting, that is why I am part of the film and this is my baby.”

“It is an interesting story that shows that every woman is a feminist.”

“Some might claim they are not but when push comes to shove the feminist side comes out”

Mahuwa says she liked how Police Officer Mabula used her talent to earn respect from her colleagues without being rude.  

“This is our first film at the academy, apart from student films that we have been producing.”

“I cannot wait for people to see the talent we have. Our plan is to develop the short film into a feature film.”
