The less than five-minute snippet sees Lere Paimo, a Nollywood star, chanting incantations in response to a question by a judge during a court session — a development that was greeted with mixed reactions.
It also sees Ronke Ojo, another movie star, staging fake theatrics in reaction to her husband’s demise.
Afolayan said the movie was a creative idea from Toun Adebiyi, deputy-general and former head of Lagos campus of the Nigerian Law School.
Other movie stars that featured in the film include Caroline King, Shaffy Bello and Bimbo Manuel.
