Taxi Driver (Oko Ashewo) a movie starring Odunlade Adekola, Nigeria funniest actor comes to Cinema
The premiere of the much
talked about movie, Taxi Driver (Oko Ashewo) held over the weekend at FilmHouse
Cinema Apapa.
The movie which stars
Femi Jacobs, Saka, Odunlade Adekola, Ijeoma Grace Agu and others has been
generating a lot of excitement because it’s the first time the three will be
acting together in a movie in a predominantly English language movie. 

 Besides,
Odunlade who has become the king of mass market will be making cinema debut in
cinemas for the first time. It remains to be seen whether he can translate the
mass market appeal to the cinema.

 Taxi Driver (Oko Ashewo)
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.
A strong
contender as one of the most beautifully shot film ever, to have come out of
Nigeria. This dark comedy story brings a rich mixed bag of emotions from love
to greed to betrayal, shenanigans, contradictions and self-discovery.
The movie
directed by Daniel Emeke Oriahi will be in cinema across Nigeria from Friday,
November 13.
Speaking
on the movie, Dom Omope, the in-house producer at FilmOne said, Taxi Driver
(Oko Ashewo) is the last of three films I have produced this year as head of
film production at filmOne and it’s by far my most ambitious of all.

Taxi
Driver (Oko Ashewo) presented us with a great and refreshing opportunity to
create something visually stunning and standout in Nollywood.
I am
really excited about this moment in Nollywood’s history where FilmOne is at the
fore- front of the creation of cinema films to add more richness and diversity
to the industry. This is a film i am proud of and every Nigerian should be
proud of as well.
The movie
which will be in cinemas across Nigeria from this Friday, November 13 will see
the iconic 1980s Peugeot 504 Lagos Taxi with a miniature ‘eyo masquerade’
mounted on the bonnet touring the cinemas with some of the leading actors.

The movie
which has been described as a good mixed of talent and ambition by movie
critics is expected to be a big box office hit.
