Nigerian comedian, Ayo Makun, well-known by his stage name AY, is one of the many Nigerians hugely inspired by the historic Grammy win of the past few days.
AY shared a post on his Instagram page about his latest film Almajiri. He is the executive producer.
He mentioned that he was aiming for the Oscars and believes he would get one, the same way Burna Boy prophesized his Grammy in the past and won.
About the film, he also revealed that it exposes the hazards of the Almajiri system, and how it has subjected many kids to begging for alms on the street and equally exposes them to all manner of abuses.
He wrote in a portion of the caption, "So permit me to let you know that the originality of Almajiri the movie that is based on a very common story of children who are subjected to the high level of poverty faced by most families living in the northern part of Nigeria, will make @theacademy do us proud in Nollywood. If 30 Days In Atlanta could make it to the Guinness World Records, I believe Almajiri The Movie will do better.
Can I get an Amen?"
He has been working on the project for a while and the production looks excellent, judging by the trailer he shared on his IG.
The star-studded film stars Kanayo O. Kanayo, Ayo Makun, Ali Nuhu, Alexx Ekubo, Annie Macaulay-Idibia, Segun Arinze, Broda Shaggi.
