Nigerian actor, comedian, producer and movie director Ayodeji Richard Makun, also known AY has enlisted popular Nollywood actors Kanayo O Kanayo, Segun Arinze and others for his upcoming movie titled ‘Almajiri’.
The movie also stars Alexx Ekubo, Annie Idibia, Rahama Sadau, Seyi Law, Ali Nuhu, Sani Danger among others.
AY shared pictures and a video from the making of the movie on Instagram on Wednesday.
According to him, the movie is based on true life experiences in the Northern part of the country.
“The most honest form of filmmaking it to make a film that tells our stories and existing realities. We are currently on working on a film titled ALMAJIRI. It is based on true life experiences in the northern part of Nigeria. The movie Almajiri is designed to tell a very common story of children who are subjected to the high level of poverty faced by most families living in that region.
“These children often wander the streets begging for food, clothes, and other necessities thus making them vulnerable to chronic ill-health, sexual and physical abuse, human trafficking, slavery, drugs etc,” he wrote.
