Kunle Afolayan, one of Nollywood’s foremost film makers is gearing up to deliver yet another Netflix banger, this time, a coming of age family adventure film titled Ijogbon.
The year 2022 witnessed the release of Afolayan’s epic fantasy film, Anikulapo, which went on to become of the most watched non-English films shortly after its release. Although Afolayan announced a spin off series is already in development, it most likely will take the back shelf for a little while.
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. It stars Bimbo Manuel, Gabriel Afolayon, Sam Dede, Tana Adelana, Yemi Solade, Yemi Sodimu, Femi Branch, Adunni Ade, and Dorothy Bachor amongst others.
Ijogbon marks the fifth collaboration between Afolayon and Babola after October 1, Citation, The CEO, and Mokalik.
