Lagos - Taxi Driver (Oko Ashewo) has the biggest opening weekend for a Nigerian Film in Cinemas in 2015.
This was confirmed both by the director of the film Daniel Oriahi, and by a senior executive at Filmone distributors who own Film house cinema and Film one distributors.
This has led to full huge optimism that the lull indigenous films have witnessed in 2015 so far has come to an end.
Taxi driver (Oko Ashewo) is a hilarious comedy drama about working in Lagos at night, as a taxi Driver. It tells the story of how Adigun (Femi Jacobs) copes with dealing with the multitude of odd characters he comes across from Delia (Ijeoma Grace Agu) the queen prostitute, to Kakanfo (Hafiz Oyetoro) 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.
