Introducing Hilarious Comedy “Oko Ashewo” Starring Odunlade, Femi Jacobs and Saka
We all have boarded a Taxi at one time in our lives and have a lot of tales to tell about that particular experience, some good, some bad, some extremely horrendous. FilmOne Distribution alongside Orbit Imagery and House 5 production presents to you a hilarious tale of the night life of taxi driver in the never sleeping city of Lagos.
The lead character 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.
It tells the story of how Adigun copes with dealing with the multitude of odd characters he comes across working at night from Delia the queen prostitute, to Kakanfo the unseen vigilante, the notorious assassins ‘three wise men’, to the Godfather, Baba Mistura and many more interesting characters that ply their trade in Lagos at night.
You may be wondering, why should I watch this movie? We’ll tell you why. It is a strong contender as one of the most beautifully shot film ever, to have come out of Nigeria. It takes you through the journey of both a Taxi Driver and its passenger adding a very funny and hilarious twist to it.
