TAXI DRIVER SYNOPSIS
Taxi driver (Oko Ashewo) is a hilarious comedy drama about working in Lagos at night, as a taxi Driver.
Adigun played by AMVCA winner Femi Jacobs, is a 31 year old naive village mechanic coming to Lagos for the first time. His decision comes following the sudden death of his father, a man he never truly knew… yet a man very popular in his village as the iconic Lagos taxi driver 'Oko Ashewo' (which means 'husband of a prostitute').
However, Adigun's coming to Lagos is on the invitation of Taiwo, his father’s fellow taxi driver played by popular Yoruba actor Odunlade Adekola... but Taiwo is dangerous and as shady as Lagos at night.
Taxi Driver (Oko Ashewo) tells the story of how Adigun copes with dealing with the multitude of odd characters he comes across from Delia the queen prostitute, to Kakanfo 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.
Taxi Driver (Oko Ashewo) will debut in all Nigeria cinemas from November 13, 2015. Hope you can't wait to watch? Share your thoughts on Nigeria Movie Network!
