‘Juju Stories’ to hit the big screens in January
Michael Omonua, C.J Obasi and Abba T. Makama’s critically acclaimed anthology film ‘Juju Stories’ is finally set to make its way to the Nigerian big screens.
Set to be distributed by Filmone Entertainment, the film has been confirmed for a January 21, 2022 theatrical release.
Produced by Oge Obasi and Francis Nebot, ‘Juju Stories’ explores three independent but connected stories exploring the concept of juju (black magic) in contemporary Lagos.
In ‘Suffer the Witch’ directed 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.
‘Juju Stories’ stars Paul Utomi, Timini Egbuson, Adebukola Oladipupo, Uzoamaka Aniunoh, Michael Ejoor, Nengi Adoki, Belinda Yanga Agedah, Elvis Poko, Don Ekwuazi.
Juju Stories was first released by Canal Olympia in 12 African countries back in October and in Nigeria at AFRIFF 2021.
