Comedian, Kevin Hart brings the laughs to Africa via a historic deal with Silverbird Cinemas



According to sources, US-based Codeblack Entertainment and comedian Kevin Hart are about to break new ground with Kevin Hart’s new theatrical release of his new stand-up comedy feature film titled ‘Laugh At My Pain!’. According to sources, Codeblack Entertainment has just entered into a multi-year distribution deal with Silverbird Cinemas, the exclusive theater chain servicing East/West Africa (Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, and Zambia). 

Silverbird is the exclusive distributor for Sony (Columbia Tristar Pictures) for Nigeria and Ghana with 59 screens (and counting) throughout the territory. If this arrangement comes into fruition, CodeBlack Entertainment will be only the 2nd American Company to start distributing films theatrically in East / West Africa while setting out to dispel the myth that black films and entertainment do not travel overseas.

According to the sources, as part of the deal, Codeblack will work with Silverbird Cinema’s’s sister entertainment company and the government of Nigeria to bring Black American Comedians to perform live shows, and Codeblack will be the exclusive supplier and promoter to East/West Africa for the live comedy shows.  Similar talks are also ongoing in South Africa and in the United Kingdom for ‘Laugh At My Pain!’
