Omolakeji is another Jaiye Kuti flick now showing on RaréTV YouTube channel.
The movie, which features Aremu Afolayan, Kelvin Ikeduba, Taiwo Ibikunle, Liz Da Silva, Sola Kareem and Jaiye Kuti herself, treats the theme of multi-level conspiracy and serial murder to achieve a single aim: ownership.
After his father’s death, Bode (Aremu Afolayan), the heir apparent to the Lewis estate, narrowly misses death from a gunshot attack and is eventually saved by his look alike, Adio (also Aremu Afolayan), for a N20 million reward all arranged by his bodyguard Odutola (Kelvin Ikeduba), but the game changes when Bode and Adio realize that they are cousins.
Then the real conspirators are unveiled.
The story plot and handling exhibit a mastery of the story craft from the writer cum director, Samson Oluwale, while it can be comfortably said Omolakeji combines strong acting with exquisite production design to communicate affluence, while mixing sublime comedy to douse and heighten dramatic tension alternatively.
Categorically speaking, Omolakeji leaves you with the “oh really?” expression as each revelation unfolds.
