Kunle Afolayon has unvield the first looks of his next film project, a coming of age drama titled Ijogbon.
Written by frequent collaborator Tune Babola, Ijogbon tells the tale of four young teenagers from a rural village in South-West Nigeria who stumble on a bag full of diamonds and hide it, much to their regret.
The movie features acting talents from the likes of Bimbo Manuel, Gabriel Afolayan, Sam Dede, Tana Adelana, Yemi Solade, Yemi Sodimu, Femi Branch, and Adunni Ade.
Afolayon famously known for directing films like Citation, October 1, and the 2022 hit Anikulapo describes his upcoming film as a university of human emotions rooted in unique cultural beliefs.
In his own words; “the movie shows the universality of human emotions, defined by peculiar cultural backgrounds and beliefs. Furthermore, the film depicts what life is like for teenagers in rural parts, and their aspirations for a better life, even if it means having to Japa (leaving the country).”
