Jagun Jagun, a movie produced by Femi Adebayo and jointly directed by Adebayo Tijani and Tope Adebayo Salami, has got many talks on social media.
Released on August 10, the movie tells the story of a young man determined to become the most powerful warrior by joining an elite army, in turn, encountering the wrath of a maniacal warlord and the love of a fierce woman.
Jagun Jagun stars the likes of Femi Adebayo, Lateef Adedimeji, Odunlade Adekola, Fathia Williams, and a host of others.
Adebayo in a post on his Instagram page noted that his dream to surpass ‘Agesinkole’ another movie of his produced in 2022 has left people asking what else could be bigger.
He said, “Well, it happened. We beat our record!
“We made a didactic story about LIFE, POWER, PEOPLE, CHANGE, CHANCE and PURPOSE. The day we were BORN and the day we find out WHY we were born.”
Reacting to the epic movie, #woliagba_ayoajewole said, “Oh! Good morning! Let me go and pray first. Too early to be watching this over and over. This is too huge!!! 👏👏👏👏”
#falzthebahdguy simply said, “This looks big🔥🔥🔥”

Fine, I just watched the “Jagunjagun” today and all ill say is that it’s overhyped, the paparazzi social media attached to it is way more than what we saw. I’m not saying it’s not amazing but pls@Ageshinkole is GOAT 🐐 🤌🔥😌. Ps: my opinion✅ nice one.”
Another Instagram user #enioluwaofficial wrote, “So grateful for the culture writers and those who preserve it, putting it on the world map for all to see! Uncle #odunomoadekola movie in the cinema, now an original on Netflix.😮💨 So proud of the indigenous film industry in Naija. This looks beautiful Uncle #femiadebayosalami and we are all so excited to see it. Congratulations to you and the team! Many More! Amen!✨🛏️”
#obapicker001 said, “Thanks for this beautiful costume and a nice storyline. And also letting our youth know that we don’t need to fight against ourselves while the children of our leaders are far away.
On X (formerly Twitter) #Folashade_RP said, “My take on Jagun Jagun It’s an interesting movie and action park but hopefully there will be part 2 cos we need to know how a mighty warrior was easily dis-powered by his wife. What kind of relationship do they share we need to know their story and the end of those obas and who’s chatta?”
On Facebook, Ayodele Agoro wrote, “The way Yoruba indigenous movie has transformed recently is beyond comprehension… Culture, tradition, originality, and Africanism are all being infused and brought into the limelight in their full force with quality, elegance and dynamism 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥”
Vivian Obianuju said, “Y’all have made an Igbo girl fall so much in love with Yoruba culture. If only y’all could see the joy in my eyes while watching this…You’d for sure say I’m definitely obsessed with Yoruba movies. 😍😍
