"Taxi Driver" centres around the life of a Lagos driver.




Adigun played by AMVCA winner Femi Jacobs, is a 31 year old naive village mechanic coming to Lagos for the first time. His decision comes following the sudden death of his father, a man he never truly knew, yet a man very popular in his village as the iconic Lagos taxi driver 'Oko ashewo'.

However, Adigun's coming to Lagos is on the invitation of Taiwo, his father’s fellow taxi driver played by popular yoruba actor Odunlade Adekola. Taiwo however is dangerous and as shady as Lagos at night.
