What's better than a success story, if not one mixed with true love? Áfàméfùnà: An Nwa Boi Story unravels a tale of the Igbo apprenticeship system and its impact on the community's economy. The film is told through the lens of two young men who find themselves in the apprenticeship system as they try to find their way up the ladder despite unforeseen circumstances that pose a threat.

Are you inquisitive about the details of the Igbo learning culture or interested in seeing how the Yoruba director Kayode Kasum is able to kill his role and deliver the beautiful work of art? Then make those plans and head to the nearest cinema to have a taste.

Making its theatrical debut on December 1, 2023, the film features a remarkable cast that includes Kanayo O. Kanayo, Stan Nze, Alexx Ekubo, Atlanta Bridget Johnson, Segun Arinze, Jide Kene Achufusi, and Noble Igwe.
