In “Ajosepo,” estranged brothers Jide and Dapo are compelled to unite when their father becomes embroiled in a compromising situation with the bride’s aunt, endangering the wedding.

This Filmtrybe X Singularity production delves into the theme of familial ties, featuring a stellar cast including Timini Egbuson, Bisola Aiyeola, Tomike Adeoye, Mercy Aigbe, Mike Afolarin, alongside Nollywood veterans Yemi Solade, Ronke Ojo, and Muyiwa Ademola.

Directed by Kayode Kasum, produced by Feyifunmi Oginni, and written by Stephen Okonkwo, “Ajosepo” promises an engaging narrative captured by Emmanuel Igbekele.


Key Background

Kayode Kasum embarked on his filmmaking journey as a motion graphics designer at Wale Adenuga Productions before transitioning to a producer role in an advertising company. His directorial debut came with “Dognapped,” Nigeria’s first live-action animation film, released in 2017. However, it was his 2018 film “Oga Bolaji” that catapulted him to fame.

He has since directed several notable Nollywood productions, including “Sugar Rush” and “Fate of Alakada.” Kasum’s directorial portfolio extends beyond feature films to include over 10,860 minutes of directing MNET’s telenovela series “Unbroken” and “Riona.” Notably, he helmed Nigeria’s first live-action animated movie and one of the country’s highest-grossing films.

Kasum has received accolades for his work, including a nomination for The Future Awards Africa 2019 prize for Filmmaking and recognition as one of the top Nollywood directors in 2020.

In 2023, he was further acknowledged for his directorial contributions to films such as “Something Like Gold,” “Afamefuna,” and “Far From Home.”




In “Ajosepo,” the echoes of Tunde Kelani’s “Thunderbolt” resonate, offering a contemporary lens on familial and societal intricacies. Set in modern times, the film navigates themes of tradition and societal expectations, reminiscent of Kelani’s exploration.

As the audience immerses themselves in the narrative’s portrayal of familial conflicts and evolving social norms, discussions on tradition, family values, and the adaptation of cultural heritage in contemporary settings are anticipated.

The interpretation and acceptance of these themes will hinge on the film’s ability to resonate with viewers’ experiences and perceptions, sparking meaningful dialogue on the intersection of tradition and modernity in today’s society.

In Summary

The film is set to hit theatres on April 12th, 2024 – Official Trailer Soon to come.
