'Juju Stories' lands AFRIFF recognition

‘Juju Stories’ lands AFRIFF recognition


Co-director, CJ Obasi confirmed the film’s exciting new feat via a social media announcement.

“And @jujustories_ by the @surreal16collective picked up the Best Director(s) Award at @afriff What a week it’s been! I would like to thank the Features Jury for the honour, the entire organizing committee of AFRIFF, Creative Director @therealjennyalonzo and the Amazing @realchiomaude for being a relentless and consistent visionary…” CJ wrote.

Starring Timini Egbuson, Belinda Agedah Yanga, Paul Utomi, Adebukola Oladipupo, Nengi Adoki, the three-part anthology film explores juju in contemporary Lagos with three stories- ‘Suffer the Witch’ directed by Obasi, ‘Yam’ by Makama and ‘Love Portion’ by Omonua.

In ‘Suffer the Witch’, love and friendship turns into obsession, when a young college woman attracts her crush’s interest. In ‘Love Potion’, an unmarried woman agrees to use juju to find herself an ideal mate and in ‘Yam’, consequences arise when a street urchin picks up seemingly random money from the roadside.

“Four halls filled and overflowing is no joke! Not to put them up on the spot, but I know @filmhousecinemas should listen to the people now. Blessings,” the filmmaker wrote.

‘Juju Stories’ is produced by Oge Obasi and executive produced by Francis Nebot.
