Nollywood actor and singer, Gabriel Afolayan, is part of the star-studded cast of "Okafor's Law."

The fourth Omoni Oboli film as a director, "Okafor's Law" is coming on the heels of the success of "Wives on Strike" in Nigeria cinemas.

Speaking on the movie Afolayan rated the work as "high level standard."

"This is very high level standard, this is one of those set that you would be on and you are glad that you are working. You get to experience a thorough film making process, the breakdown of scenes and shots and the feel of intense lightening. Those are the very important things that most of the filmmakers don’t even get to do sometimes and having Yinka Edward on set, it couldn’t have been any better, with standard equipment, standard crew in terms of numbers," he said.
