Also directed by Abba Makama and Michael Omonua, the anthology film featuring three films 'Suffer the Witch', 'Yam' and 'Love Potion' tackles juju in contemporary Lagos with three stories.

In 'Suffer the Witch' by Obasi, love and friendship turns into obsession, when a young college woman attracts her crush's interest. In 'Love Potion' by Omonua, an unmarried woman agrees to use juju to find herself an ideal mate and in 'Yam' by Makama, consequences arise when a street urchin picks up seemingly random money from the roadside.

The film stars Emeka Amakeze, Paul Utomi, Timini Egbuson, Adebukola Oladipupo, Uzoamaka Aniunoh, Michael Ejoor, Nengi Adoki, Belinda Yanga Agedah, Elvis Poko, Don Ekwuazi

'Juju Stories' is produced by Oge Obasi and Francis Nebot and will be released by Canal Olympia in 12 African countries on October 31, 2021.
