    So! This movie is just a metaphoric portrayal of the messed up situation in Naija and the whole political arena and even I think it also has something to do with their Yoruba movie sector shebang. I liked the fact that they used being an "Alapata" of eran as the premise because it looks so simple yet it really tied in with a lot of things. It's just that in this movie at times, the acting can become a little trite and annoying. All in all, Femi Adebayo don do am. They are really thinking hard in that Yoruba movie industry not just doing stupid vain stories. I like movies that make you think, they are putting a lot of though to their stories. I just wish they will be rewarded in kind with the amount of hard work they put in.

    Starring: Femi Adebayo, Saheed Balogun, Jaiye Kuti, and soo many others

    Yes. Check out some of the movies on this forum and watch for ratings. Trust me, I don't recommend jagajaga movies.
