Here is your first look at Netflix's 'Jagun Jagun'
Could this be a win for the cause of more portrayal of African cultural stories?
Produced by Femi Adebayo Salami, who also plays the lead, the film tells the story of a blood-thirsty warlord who feels threatened by a young warrior whose only desires are the basics of life; power and the love of a woman.
Directed by Adebayo Tijani and Tope Adebayo Salami, Jagun Jagun features actors and actresses who cut across the Yoruba and English Nollywood categories with the likes of Adedimeji Lateef, Bimbo Ademoye, Fathia Balogun, Mr Macaroni, and Bukunmi Oluwasina.
With its trailer promising a rich cultural Yoruba story, no cost was spared in the production of what is said to have been a one month shoot at a Southwest location in Nigeria.
Following the success of King of Thieves, also co-produced by Anthill Studios, more streaming platforms and cinema houses have welcomed African cultural stories.
Adebayo's latest epic is heading straight to the Netflix streaming platform on August 10, 2023.
