Wale Ojo, Ali Nuhu, Tope Tedela, Somkele Idalama, Linda Ejiofor, Zainab Balogun and Hafiz Oyetoro (Saka) among other award-winning actors star in ‘Ojukokoro’, a gripping crime-thriller.
‘Ojukokoro’ is another Nollywood flick that came to life through multiple production companies; Singularity Media, House Gabriel Studios and BCI Studios.
Written and directed by Dare Olaitan and produced by Olufemi Ogunsawo, ‘Ojukokoro’ (Greed) unwraps an intriguing tale about a money-strapped manager of a shady petrol station who decides to rob his employers but along the line finds out in a sudden twist that he is not alone in his ambition and that a good reason isn’t always a right one.
Dare Olaitan, while speaking about the movie, said, “Ojukokoro was inspired by the state of events in Nigeria during 2014 elections with the general state of greed in the nation due to the upcoming elections.
“It is an ensemble cast movie that deals primarily with a heist which is an avenue that is rarely explored in Nollywood Cinema.
“From the conception to execution, the movie took me three years to produce. I wrote the script when I was fresh from film school with little knowledge of how the Nigerian Film industry operates. It’s nice to finally have an end product after many years of dreaming and scheming.”
After its successful screening at the African International Film Festival (AFRIFF) in November, the movie has been tipped by viewers to become a box office hit in cinemas.
