What to Look Out for
In an exclusive conversation with Shock, Director Femi Ogunsanwo shares what makes him excited about this project, he says
“ This film brings out elements of things I have personally experienced, especially because I once worked in a car dealership for a year, a very long time ago.
Also, this project was so much fun to co-write with a good collaborator of mine – Dare Olaitan.
This project marks my debut into a combination of genres I really love; murder mystery and crime thriller.
And I can’t wait to share the first look of “Lagos Chairman” images dropping soon.
