Some cast members of the upcoming movie "Ojukokoro" recently spoke about the movie.

“I have never been held to ransom and kidnapped so to speak but I have been in a situation where my loved one was so I could relate," Somkele Idhalama who plays Sade says.

"Being dragged on the floor was not fun at all (laughs) but we got through it,” she adds. “It was fun working with an ensemble of amazingly talented actors. Ojukokoro has all the elements of a film that will hold your attention for the right reasons so definitely go and see it.”

"Ojukokoro has something extra," Zainab Balogun who plays Bose said. “The story is like no other. The movie provides you with great humour, thrill and suspense all in one. Trust me when I say that Ojukokoro will have you sitting tight and locked in your seats," she adds.

Tedela who plays Sunday in the movie said, “I had just finished work on another film that had drained me emotionally and taken me to dark places. Brushing all that off and getting into Sunday’s head-space was the real challenge. It was like moving from zero to 100.”

“Ojukokoro explores the action/crime genre in a way that I have not seen before and I know that it will be a great cinematic experience for people when they get to see it,” he concluded.
