Afolayan also called Lugard, one of his best movies ever in a released statement for the press.
“I like my role in Lugard. I can boldly say it is one of my best jobs ever. It was such a strong movie. The story is a story that pulls you to the very centre of your heart. It is about love, cultism and youths. The performance is out of this world. The crew members are some of the best hands in the country and my co-actors are great as you already know most of them. I really like this film. It is a movie on serious performance, great quality and entertainment. The audience will really like this one”
Lugard is coming to cinemas on August 27, 2021.
Hakeem Olageshin, executive producer, also had this to say when speaking about the movie.
“When I speak about Lugard the movie, it gives me so much joy to see the beautiful piece of art my team and I put together. Cultism and Confraternity still remains a big issue in this part of the world as the original reason why they were created have been completely altered for violence and other humiliating selfish interest that exactly inspired this intriguing story. I would really love everyone to storm the cinemas on the 27th of August because LUGARD the movie is a must-see for everyone.”
Lugard is a production of 3 Knights Film Production in conjunction with B5Films and Monomania Entertainment.
