From the producer of the hugely successful movie, Couple of Days comes a new horror movie, Ajuwaya- the Haunted Villageâ€™, which is seen as a breath of fresh air and a stroke of genius on the part of the producer.
Ajuwaya- the Haunted Villageâ€™ will make its nationwide cinema debut on Friday, July 7.
Ajuwaya- the Haunted Villageâ€™ is produced and directed by Tolu LordTanner who is known for his â€˜Couple of Daysâ€™ movie. â€˜Ajuwayaâ€™ which had previously being screened at the Lagos state NYSC camp has been enjoying good review from the select few that have seen it.
â€˜Ajuwaya- The Haunted Villageâ€™ follows the story of six corpers who were posted to a remote village in Osun state for their youth service and unwittingly awaken an age-long evil. The movie features , Timini Egbuson, Lanre Hassan, Etinosa Idemudia, Kemi Lala Akindoju, Northern sensation, Rahama Sadau and others.
According to the director and producer, â€œWhen I wanted to come into movie industry, one of the things I wanted to do was make a movie that targeted ages 18 and 25/30, the vibrant age that does not watch Nollywood and this is what we are doing with Ajuwaya. One of the best experiences I ever had was during my youth service; was a year when I experienced another life in the same country called Nigeria.
The first time I heard the name Ajuwaya was during the orientation camp, it was the name our trainers used to call us, I didnâ€™t know what it meant until someone told me it actually meant â€˜As you wereâ€™. Many young adults and the much older ones especially those who underwent the one year compulsory service will be able to relate with this movie and its story.
