Taxi Driver (Oko Ashewo) a hilarious comedy drama about working in Lagos at night, as a taxi Driver. The movie is scheduled to hit cinema on the 13th of November 2015.
Directed by Daniel Oriahi, it stars Femi Jacobs, Ijeoma Grace Agu, Odulade Adekola, Afeez Oyetoro, e.t.c.
Adigun played by AMVCA winner Femi Jacobs, is a 31 year old naive village mechanic coming to Lagos for the first time. His decision comes following the sudden death of his father, a man he never truly knew, yet a man very popular in his village as the iconic Lagos taxi driver 'Oko Ashewo'.
However, Adigun's coming to Lagos is on the invitation of Taiwo, his father's fellow taxi driver played by popular yoruba actor Odunlade Adekola, but Taiwo is dangerous and as shady as Lagos at night.
Taxi Driver (Oke Ashewo) tells the story of how Adigun copes with dealing with the multitude of odd characters he comes across from Della the queen prostitute, to kakanfo the unseen vigilante, the notorious assassins 'three wise men', to the Godfather, Baba Mistura and many more interesting characters that ply their trade in Lagos at night.
In truth, Taxi Driver is as much a funny story as it is an inspiring story about love, greed, betrayal, contradictions and self discovery.
