Timini Egbuson, Kanaga Jr. on How Their Unbreakable Friendship Started in Kayode Kasum’s ‘Ajosepo.’

Renowned Nigerian actor Timini Egbuson and BBN star Kanaga Jr. recently engaged in a heart-to-heart conversation that not only unveiled the depth of their friendship but also shed light on their roles in the upcoming drama, ‘Ajosepo,’ set to hit Nigerian theatres on April 10, 2024.

This film promises a captivating exploration of family dynamics, love, and relationships, offering audiences a blend of entertainment and insightful reflections. As the release date approaches, Egbuson and Kanaga Jr. took a moment to share personal insights on the film’s themes and delve into the brotherly bond they’ve cultivated.

‘Ajosepo,’ written by Stephen Okonkwo and directed by Kayode Kasum, unravels the lives of Dapo (Mike Afolarin) and Tani (Tomike Adeoye), two young couples navigating the complexities of marriage. The film’s narrative takes a dramatic turn as family secrets, tensions, and unexpected revelations threaten to disrupt the joyous occasion during their wedding preparations.

In a surprising revelation, Kanaga Jr. expressed his admiration for Egbuson, describing him as a big brother figure from whom he seeks life advice. Their connection began at the African International Film Festival (AFRIFF) in 2021, where their paths crossed. Following the encounter, Egbuson, impressed by Kanaga Jr., became a guiding force in his life.

Recalling their initial meeting, Kanaga Jr. shared that Egbuson followed him on Instagram the morning after AFRIFF. What started as a professional relationship evolved into a deep friendship when Kanaga Jr. served as Egbuson’s personal assistant. Egbuson, recognising Kanaga Jr.’s potential, transitioned him out of the assistant role and encouraged him to pursue his dreams beyond the role of an assistant, but kept him close, solidifying their brotherly bond.

Reflecting on the film, Egbuson humorously expressed a wish that they could have portrayed siblings in ‘Ajosepo.’ However, the storyline took an unexpected turn, presenting both actors with a challenging situation within the narrative. Egbuson teased fans to anticipate how their characters navigate this predicament, promising an engaging and unpredictable twist.

The star-studded cast, including Ronke Ojo-Anthony, Yemi Sholade, Bisola Aiyeola, and Deyemi Okanlawon, adds a layer of talent to the film, promising an authentic and relatable Nigerian narrative challenging societal norms on marriage.

As the excitement builds towards the cinema premiere, Egbuson and Kanaga Jr. enthusiastically encourage their fans to experience the magic of ‘Ajosepo’ on the big screen, promising an immersive cinematic journey that transcends the ordinary, leaving a lasting impact on perceptions of love, trust, and the intricacies of the human soul.
