Taxi Driver Oko Ashewo trailer is out and it’s totally hilarious, edgy, and different from the norm.
The movie produced by House 5 Production, Orbit Imagery and FilmOne Distribution and Production, is one of the most highly anticipated comedy movies of 2015 and the trailer justifies that tag.
AMVCA winner, Femi Jacobs, portrays the lead character Adigun, a 31 year old mechanic who heads to Lagos following the sudden death of his father, who he barely even knew. Although the old man, his farther, was quite famous in his village, as he was the legendary Lagos taxi driver Oko Ashewo (a husband of a prostitute).
Adigun, faced with the stress of taking care of his family in the village makes the long trip to Lagos on the invitation of his father’s fellow taxi driver friend, the deceptive Taiwo ( played by Odunlade Adekola), and this trip turn his life upside down.
Taxi Driver Oko Ashewo takes movie lovers through the different characters Adigun encounters as cab driver in Lagos such as, Delia the queen prostitute, Kakanfo the unseen vigilante, the notorious assassins ‘three wise men’, the Godfather, Baba Mistura, and many more interesting characters that ply their trade in Lagos at night.
The cast of the movie is also a huge selling point for this movie, but we are not going to give you a full review until we get to see the movie, because some trailers can be totally misleading. But just like I mentioned earlier, the cast of the movie are all top notch so I’ll put my money on this movie when it hits Nigerian cinemas from November 13, 2015.
