The movie Irapada, which invariably means Redemption was our first full film. It’s a drama film, which circles around a young man named, Dewunmi, who is of Yoruba origin, but lives in the Northern part of the country. He has an unannounced visitation from his mother who tries to convince him to come back home to carry out some cultural rites, a sort of redemption on behalf of the family as she deals with a foray of nightmares. Prompted by these constant nightmares, she has gone to see an interpreter who tells her that there is need for her son (who features prominently in the dream) to be around for the cleansing to take place. She travels to the North to tell her son. But Dewunmi, being educated turns a deaf ear to her, by deciding not to partake in such activity. Unfortunately, the mother dies on her way back home, and his life spirals into a manifold of adventures after…

‘No one told them about the next seven years…’ was the chosen promotional tagline for this adjudge movie that was officially release in 2009. This movie sees Kunle Afolayan- the director, escape the usual Nollywood limitations with what is the most elaborate production to appear from the country of hyper-prolific output. The former actor turned a lot of Nollywood clichés on their head in this epic narrative of two gentlemen and a lady while during the course of serving at a National Youth Service Corps camp, the two friends find a mystical sculpture in an abandoned shrine in the forest, and one of them decides to take the artwork home. Unknown to them, the sculpture is from the Yoruba goddess Araromire which bestows seven years of good luck on anyone who encounters it, and after the seven years have expired, seven years of bad luck follow. The lives of the two friends begin to change for good, as they become successful and wealthy businessmen. However, after seven years things start to change for worse.

Phone Swap is the company’s 3rd feature film- a comedic tale that surrounds two very opposite individuals. Prior to its release, it had already been review by the New York Times where the Director was likened to the legendary Martin Scorsese after they were marveled by the depth in creativity and the artistry displayed.

The movie revolves around Akin and Mary who meet for the first time at an airport where they accidentally bump into each other and mistakenly swap their identical Blackberry phones. This leads to a destination mix up after they receive one another’s text regarding a travel destination.
Consequently, Akin ends up traveling to where Mary is supposed to go and vice versa.
Neither knows about the swap until they have reached their opposite destinations and “the phone” stops ringing (In Mary’s case) and “Won’t stop ringing” (In Akins’s case).
As a result of the phone swap, they agree to help carry out each other’s missions, armed with the information and data on each other’s phone.
But it’s not as easy as they both think as new obstacles and complications rise at every turn as they both struggle to adapt to their alien environment and situation.

Mary has to walk in Akins shoes and represent him in a company meeting while Akin has to represent Mary in her family meeting, and this they did with hilarious results…
