According to Afolayan, Kadara which is a charming and swooning tale of rivalry between a handsome and endearing farmer and a brutish man of considerable wealth for the hand of the most beautiful princess in the entire Kingdom will screen at a December 15 event being organized to celebrate two decades of the filmmaker’s demise. The event which will hold at the National Theatre, Lagos will precede a celebration of life billed for Ade Love’s Agbamu, Kwara State hometown on December 27.
Taxi Driver 1 & 2 as well as Kadara will also screen at the Kwara State event. Film enthusiasts will also get the opportunity to watch the films during the yuletide period. This is definitely worth marking the calendar for.
Watch the trailer for Taxi Driver, Taxi Driver 2 and Kadara below:
A taxi driver whose estrangement from his wife complicates a series of challenges he faces with his only son. He meets and falls in love with a young lady under the most unusual of circumstances and his life although fraught with challenges sets a turn for positive change. Taxi Driver is a raw reflection and light satire of its time. It is a truly bold film.
After Tunde Samuel’s sordid experiences as a young Taxi Driver, he takes on the mantle of moral restoration in cleaning up the society of its criminal aspects. The former Taxi Driver becomes an undercover policeman, beneath the guise of yet another ordinary Taxi Driver.
When the culture of a kingdom dictates that in finding the most suitable man for the beautiful princess of the kingdom, the man must emerge champion of a collective, non-discriminatory wrestling contest. Kadara is a charming and swooning tale of rivalry between a handsome and endearing farmer and a brutish man of considerable wealth for the hand of the most beautiful princess in the entire Kingdom!
