The Figurine raises the bar of Nigerian filmmaking

 Yet to be screened by the press and still in the post production stage, The Figurine – produced by , adequately portrays the advances made in the Nigerian movie industry. The film has intricate plot that represents the true nature of the different facets of the lifestyles of Nigerians. In ancient Yoruba land, set in modern Osun State, a priest brings forth ‘Araromire’, the goddess of good luck and fortune who bestows wealth upon the people for seven years. After finding a figurine in an abandoned shrine whilst in National Youth Service Corps camp in the town of Araromire, two young friends go on from a life of hustling in Lagos to become successful businessmen facing seemingly normal issues to do with friendship, love, and family. Bizarre occurrences lead to the pointing of fingers at the ugly stranger in the house – the figurine they found seven years earlier. Starring Ramsey Nouah, Kunle Afolayan, Omoni Oboli and Funlola Aofiyebi, this N70 million production sells the ‘Lagos Life’ in an inviting manner.
